The bite for Tampa Fishing Charters started to heat up before the last cold front. Things should get back to normal soon and then game on! The snook have been hungry and are willing to take most live baits. I fished the last day before the cold front and we managed to catch multiple average-sized fish. After weeding through the smaller ones, a 36” decided she wanted to eat. David from Minnesota hooked into a snook of a lifetime. After a few tense moments, he landed a trophy snook.
The redfish have started to show up in decent numbers. I have had to work hard for them, but with a little persistence, we have managed a few quality fish. The key is to arm yourself with a variety of baits and find out what they are willing to eat.
Trout fishing has been hot and will continue to stay hot. We have been fishing a variety of depths and locations. Deeper grass flats around 4-6 feet and grass flats with as little as 12” have produced great fish. The key is to move around until you find fish.
