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
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
This time of year offers lots of different species to target for the inshore angler. We started the day off in the backwater throwing artificial lures for Snook and Redfish. Focusing on mangrove shorelines and small tidal eddies, we scored big and Danielle got her first Snook ever and what a first it was! It measured 38″ inches and weighed in at 18lbs. Once the tide slowed we moved off into some deeper water to look for larger fish. Read More
Last Sunday I had the pleasure of fishing with Jim Denison , his son Ryan and father in law Russ. It was set to be a great fishing day with great weather to boot! Ryan started of the day by landing the first two fish and proceeded to leave everyone in his dust. It is not often I see a 7 yr. old outfish everyone else, but he continued to put on a fishing clinic till the boat reached the dock. The fishing was steady all day with Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Read More
Last Saturday I had the privilege of fishing with Ex Buccaneer Lineman Jason Maniecki and the new Defensive Line coach, Grady Stretz. As soon as we started fishing everyone’s competitive nature came roaring out. From the time the first fish reached the boat it was on. Jason started off strong, but by the end of the day it was too close to call.
