Tampa Fishing Charters latest Report:
Tampa Bay Snook Fishing:
Cold fronts have begun to move through which is keeping the water temperatures down. Bait is still on the flats of Tampa Bay, but not as abundant as last month. We have been snook fishing the deeper holes of the flats and catching great numbers of fish. On average, we have been catching between 20-30 snook every morning. During the low to middle tides have been producing good numbers of trout. This past week we caught lots of smaller trout with a good mixture of bigger ones in the 19-24 inch range. Also don’t hesitate to go through your tackle box and find your favorite lures or jigs. With these super low tides, work the pot holes and the deeper middle sections of the grass flats. Try and locate large schools of mullet. The redfish and trout should be following these mullet and picking scraps behind them.
Let’s talk a little about things you can do when the weather is too cold or you just don’t want to fish in the winter. This is a great time to go through and clean your tackle box, clean and repair all of you fishing rods and reels, etc. Also, if you own a boat this is a good time to do some maintenance on your trailer, boat maintenance and cleaning, etc. It is a really good feeling to step into spring with all of these things done.
Everybody please have a safe and good Thanksgiving. Instead of snook fishing this Thanksgiving break, I will be visiting my family in South Carolina and hopefully catching redfish in my old 18 foot Maverick Master Angler.
