Fishing has been great the last few weeks. Our tournament win streak continues as we took 1st Place in the “All Heroes Open” Fishing Tournament hosted by Team ADDO. Our team of Wade Boggs, Steve Yerrid and Bob McDonough fished hard and ended up on top! It was a great event and we look forward to defending our title next year!
Fall is definitely in the air. The mornings are noticeably cooler and the fishing is improving every day. Fortunately for Tampa Bay the red tide that devastated much of Florida’s west coast never got to us. The fishing forecast for the next few months is nothing short of awesome. We are starting to see some of our best snook and redfish fishing as well as a steady tarpon bite for smaller residential tarpon. The kingfish are about to make their fall migration into our area as well. It is one of the few times of the year that you have a chance to catch virtually all species that call the west coast home! The bay is alive with bait and I for one am getting very excited about what the next few months has in store.
If you want to get in on the awesome action now is the time to book your fish catching adventure!
Here are just a few of our more memorable catches from the last two months.

We west coasters are so blessed to have live baits available to us throughout the year. I have fished all over the United States, most of the Caribbean, and some of central America and one thing I have learned is how fortunate we are to have live bait available to us year round. I consider the west coast of Florida a true bait mecca. With more than a dozen highly productive bait species available virtually year round, we are living in a live bait fisherman’s paradise.

Our recent fishing charters on Tampa Bay have been fair to excellent over the last month and things are really about to heat up. We have been fishing from the Skyway Bridge and Fort DeSoto all the way up in the bay to the Gandy Bridge. The redfish and trout fishing have been good, but it’s the snook action that has really stolen the stage lately. We have caught many snook over 30 inches lately, and lost some even bigger ones to the bushes and docks.
Shallow water redfish might be my passion, but largemouth bass fishing during the spawn and pre-spawn months has been a tradition for me since i was a kid. I loaded up the Hewes Redfisher with a different type of tackle this day. Topwater frogs, weedless worms, and texas rigs filled the tackle storage and off to a local lake we went.
Today we were focusing on bass starting to stage up in their pre-spawn homes. Read More
Recent trips have resulted in over 30 Redfish being caught on a single half-day charter. Read More
This cold front was no exception, we started out in 7-8ft. of water looking for snook only to find scattered Redfish and other species such as Snapper, Sheepshead, Read More
