Thank the Lord 2021 is here and the fishing should be great as we enter the first few months of the new year. The next few months will hold some of the best inshore action of the year for snook, redfish, and trout. Tarpon will begin to move into the bay in preparation for the big migration and spawning. Kingfish will move into our region on their spring run and almost everything that we catch throughout the year could be an option on a spring fishing trip. We had some great success tournament fishing in 2020. We only fished 3 tournaments in 2020, but were blessed to come out on top and win 2 of 3. Spring is also a great time for team building and corporate fishing events and we have several packages available for groups from 2 to 200. Call us today to book your spring fishing trip today!

As spring turns to summer fish of all species descend on Tampa Bay to feed and spawn. It is truly one of the best times of year for a variety of species. The Snook and Redfish fishing remains excellent and Tarpon, Cobia, Sharks and Tripletail just to name a few have begun their Tampa Bay invasion. If one or more of these species is on your bucket list its time to get hooked up!
Although variations of this fishing challenge exist throughout the world and our state, The Tampa Bay Grand Slam consists of catching a Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Trout all in the same day. It has been one of my favorite challenges for myself and my clients throughout the years and May is quite possibly the best month of the year to get yours.
Bridges are some of the best fish habitats worldwide. Like an oil rig attracts fish offshore, similarly bridges attract everything from baitfish and crustaceans to apex predators. Tampa Bay is home to four of Florida’s largest bridges including the state’s second largest, the Sunshine Skyway. Along with the 4 major bridges that span Tampa Bay are numerous smaller bridges that connect residential areas. Bridges are favorite hangout spots for fish for a multitude of reasons. Read More
April will mark the beginning of our tarpon season. Consistent reports of poon sightings and hookups start to spread quickly, and everyone starts to feel symptoms of tarpon fever. You know tarpon fever is spreading when tackle shops start to run out of heavier Fluorocarbon leader, bigger circle hooks are disappearing of the racks, and guys are flooding in one after another with big dusty spinning reels to get them reloaded with heavier braid.

It’s one of my favorite times of the year again and the fishing gods must be in a good mood because they sent us some great fishing targets ahead of schedule. Tarpon, Kingfish, and Cobia are three of my favorite fish to catch and all three have already started to show up much earlier than expected. Thanks to the warm weather and influx of bait, these three pelagics are definitely moving in to our area’s beaches and bays. Read More
