Tampa Bay Fishing Report

The heat, and the bite, is on! This is the time of year when virtually everything is possible. So far this month we have caught redfish, trout, mackerel, tarpon, grouper, jack crevelle, ladyfish, bonita, blacktip sharks, bull sharks, spinner sharks, mangrove snapper…. the list goes on.

If you want to know what the hot bit is it’s mackerel. Spanish mackerel have invaded Tampa Bay and they make great table fare if eaten within a day or two. We’re also getting some really big (for summer time) trout up to 22″. Redfish are a tough bite but if you focus on them and understand that they will take some work to cooperate, you can hook a trophy. Tarpon are still around and though they are not as easy a target as they are in May, June and July, they can still be caught by those dead set on catching a silver king.

It’s hot outside but the fishing is good. There’s no reason to waste a day at home if you can go fishing. The time is now if you want to catch an many different species of fish as you can in one trip.
