Tampa Fishing Charters Latest Report:
Sorry for the delay in my reporting, but the Tampa Fishing Charters has been fabulous the past four weeks. I usually start with letting everyone know about the snook fishing first; however, we are going to change up the order this report.
Let’s start with Redfish:
Schools of redfish have finally moved into Tampa Bay in abundance. These fish are very finicky during the low tides. Once the tide moves in about half way, the bite turns on. You can use live greenbacks or any combination of cut bait whether it be ladyfish, mullet, pinfish, etc. Once you have located the school, take some time to read these fish and figure out what they are doing. By doing this you can fish a school for a while and not have to chase them around the flat. This was one of the many 30 plus inch reds we have been catching.
During all of my Tampa Fishing Charters, the snook fishing has been exceptional. We have been working deeper pot holes during the low tides and just about every mangrove shoreline during high tide. Present these fish with a greenback and hold on. During a recent trip, we caught 35-40 snook with two of them being in the slot. I recently did some exploring on one of my few days off and found good numbers of snook in various spots. I checked out a fishing hole that has not been fishing for a while and saw approximately 70 snook in it. Went back the next day on a charter and caught about 25 fish.
It has been a long time since I have caught this many big trout. During a recent trip, we caught 10-15 trout in the 20-26″ range. I even drifted across a flat the other day and caught 10 trout on artificials. It has been awesome
