Tampa Bay Redfish Action

The Tampa Bay charter fishing for redfish starts to heat up. Redfish start to spawn in August and continue through November. Redfish will school up and feed heavily to prepare to spawn. Tampa Bay fishing offers a variety of redfish schools and they are eating. We are fishing these schools of redfish in water no deeper than 4 feet making it easy to sight fish them. Schools of redfish range from 10 fish to a couple hundred fish. Seeing the lager schools is an awesome sight. Watching a couple hundred redfish that range 8-15lbs in 3 feet of water is something everyone should experience. I have had some great Tampa Bay charters my last few trips with multiple redfish landed. Some of the schools have been holding some oversize fish. Here is a picture of a client on a Tampa fishing charter with an oversize redfish that measured 35” and weighed over 14lbs. The redfish size limit for Tampa Bay and all of Florida, is 18”-27”. Redfish have no closed season and have a bag limit of 1 redfish per angler. The offer excellent table fair with blackened being my favorite.
