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.
The Fall weather is here and with it brings some of the best fishing of the year. Almost every part of the bay is holding good numbers of gamefish and the near shore and offshore fishing is red hot as well. Inshore fishing for Snook, Redfish, and Trout has been excellent and a Florida Inshore Grand Slam which consists of one of each of the above mentioned species is almost a guarantee, even on a half day of fishing.
The Snook have started to move into the rivers, estuaries, and small bays, and are feeding almost 24/7 to fatten up for Winter. Read More
Fishing around the cold fronts is the key to making a great day! The fishing out of the Gandy area has been on fire! Trout in the 17-24 inch class and multiple slot redfish being released as well as those over 27 inches. The smaller redfish are also easy pickings with a 1/8th
oz jig and a piece of shrimp slowly moved along the channel edges and drop offs!
The Snook bite has been on fire with whitebait readily available to the hard working individual! Read More
