Great Fishing Happening Right Now!

Capt. Taylor Cowieson

Bradenton - Saltwater Fishing Report

With all the recent rain cooling the water off significantly a couple weeks ago the snook are starting to make the first couple stops on their way to the river and back bays to roam for the winter. They are usually willing to eat as they are prepping for the coming months of less forage. Live pilchards and pinfish have been fooling these fish and there have been some nice slot sized fish caught and released aboard our Bradenton fishing charters lately. The redfish bite has remained consistent in Tampa Bay as well with a couple schools of over slot sized fish that when they are feeding can provide for some insane action. There has also been a healthy amount of slot sized redfish mixed in with the small snook on the flats.

I have been seeing lots of schools of Spanish mackerel throughout Tampa Bay and the mangrove snapper are still lingering around some of the rock piles. Plenty of jack crevelle and ladyfish schools have been making their way into the Manatee River which provides for fun on artificial baits and also for the kids that just want to catch a fish. The small fry bait is still all over the place and is mostly what the fish have continued to feed on.

During this time of the year there is an abundance of life throughout the bay and Gulf of Mexico. If you are looking for a fishing charter or sightseeing adventure give me a call at 813-220-8725.
