Fishing Around the Rain is Great!

Anna Maria - Saltwater Fishing Report

Although we have seen rain almost every day for the last 10 days the fishing has still been good. With the rain we had to adjust our fishing locations to fish around the showers. The Snook have been moving from deep in the mangroves out to the flats with the tides. In the slack tide mid day they move deep into the mangroves and have not been as aggressive. Wit ha little chumming and some cut bait they will bite. The bait has finally started moving along the flats and although still small in size the fish are hitting the small bait.

The trout fishing has been great! We have been drifting the flats with cut bait under a popper until we come along the trout. They have been holding in about 5 feet of water over the grass and around the sand pockets. When you get into a school of smaller trout move until you find the larger ones. An occasional ladyfish and mackerel will run some drag, as you are trout fishing.

Shark fishing has been very active. We spent some time on slack tides bending the rods with some nice shark. Just off Anna Maria Island and beaches chum with some cut bait and then use lite tackle rod and reel with a chunk of cut bait on a #2 hook and hold on. On Tuesday we had a shark every 5 min until we moved back to inshore fishing.
