July Tampa Fishing Report!


If you haven’t noticed, it’s HOT! With water temperatures reaching mid to upper 80’s and sometime in the 90’s and air temperatures well into the 90’s, add a few thunderstorms here and there, getting out and being successful can be tough. The key to success is to get out early and move to deep water when temperatures rise. Redfish bite continues to be good. On higher tide days, look for these fish to be pushed back under the mangroves to seek shade. Mangrove Snapper bite will be good this month. Most all of rocks piles in the Bay will hold fish. The Grouper bite has slowed a bit but we continue to catch a few keepers inside the bay. Here is a photo of a keeper Gag Grouper caught by a customer on a trip.
