Fishing Reports

September Fishing Tampa Bay

Fishing has been red hot in Tampa bay the past week. We have been catching plenty of fish and plenty of different species of fish! Redfish bite is about as good as it gets right now with lots of slot fish being landed. The redfish have been mixed in with lots of snook on the same flats. Nice slot sized trout are being landed on the deeper edges of the same flats we are finding the snook and reds.
Bait has been abundant on the grass flats in the lower Tampa Bay/Anna Maria Island areas. The bait will be in the same areas now for a while until the cold fronts and wind start to come. The water has been very tanic colored in a lot of areas still, finding clean water will help your chances of finding feeding fish and also finding good bait. The Spanish mackerel are showing up at the artificial reefs in the 1-5 mile range on the beach. Finding the diving birds and big schools of bait will lead you to the mackerels, you will also see them jumping out of the water as the feed on the bait schools.
Booking charters for October and November, fishing will remain outstanding during these months! Call me at 813-220-8725 to get in on some of the fall fishing action!
