September Tampa Fishing Report!


September is here and that means one thing for Tampa Bay fishing. SNOOK SEASON IS OPEN! The day a lotSnook fishing Tampa Bay of you have been waiting for. Snook season officially opens September 1st. Anglers that want to harvest a Snook most have a fishing license with a Snook Stamp. Remember the new slot is 28”-33” and 1 per person per day. The Snook bite will slow on the beaches as these fish start the transition to the flats and their fall areas. I like scaled sardines (greenbacks) but they will be willing to eat shrimp, pinfish and even cut bait. The Redfish action will heat up. We should start seeing huge schools of fish on our area flats. Cut bait is my bait of choice. Pinfish or sardines fished on 25lb Seaguar fluorocarbon leader with a #1 Daiichi circle hook. Photo is of Blaine on his first Snook trip with an over slot fish.
