November Fishing Report!


November fishing in Tampa Bay is one of the most productive months. As we start to see more cold fronts push throughTampa Fishing Guide put client on Big Blackdrum, water temperatures will start to drop into that magical number of 70’s. This means, FISH ON! We should start to see a good push of King Mackerel making their way down our coast. If the weather cooperates, these fish will hang around all month. I like a live Threadfin or Blue runner as bait of choice. The Spanish Mackerel bite should be on fire. As more bait migrates inside the bay, so should the Spanish. The Tampa Bay Redfish bite will continue to be off hook. As November nears end, so should the spawn. So get out early in the month and fish the big schools. With Trout season CLOSED in our area in November, I try not to target these fish. If you do, handle them as least as possible and use a dehooker. Had a trip and stumbled on a huge school of Black Drum running the flats. These fish were well over 30lbs. As you can see from the pictures, the young had all she could handle. She did an excellent job of fighting the fish. To book a Tampa fishing charter with Capt. Will Shook,  call (813)732-5971
