Tampa Fishing Charters - August Red Fish report

August 15, 2011 - Tampa Fishing Charters

With all of the recent rain it seems that the red fish have become more active. I had the pleasure of filming with Bill Miller of Hooked On Fishing this week. So in preparation, I decided to take my boys pre-fishing. The fish sure did not disappoint us.

The white bait is still fairly inconsistent and very small making for a difficult bait catching experience. I am catching bait on the grass flats and still having to chum. After catching bait with my boys, we went looking for reds and snook. At the first spot we caught a couple reds, including the one the 26 incher in the picture above and the one in the picture below.

After that, we moved around and found some snook that were willing to cooperate with us. It is nice to see these fish biting in the middle of August. The highlight of the trip was when Noah caught his first snook all by himself.

The hot summer months fishing has been pretty good. The fish are in the deeper spots. They are not always as big as I would like, but it has been steady action in what is usually the most difficult time of the year to fish.
