The last month of fishing has been one of the best so far this year and I only see the action getting better in November. Offshore fishing has been as good as I have seen it in years, and the inshore action has been strong as well. There has been a great Trout pattern in the upper bay with lots of Trout in the 20 to 27 inch range. The south shore of Tampa Bay has been on fire as well.
Captain Robbie Burns has been seeing the Redfish and Snook showing up thick in their normal fall spots. Read More
The Love Bugs are here!!! Now don’t go thinking I actually like these horny little paint killers. Actually, there are few things I dislike more than having to wash them of my car every few days, but they are good for one thing. Every year Love Bugs are a sure sign that Tarpon and Cobia are here.

Well, it’s that time of year again, the black drum are moving in to Tampa bay to spawn. I don’t know if it’s just been a while since I’ve seen these fish, but they look bigger than ever this year. We have been getting these monsters to eat on every trip, and we’re getting them to the boat on trout tackle which is a real thrill if you’ve never tried it. We have spent a good part of our fishing time over the past few weeks fishing for these bruisers, and are looking forward to them hanging around for us to enjoy for another month or so. Read More
