Great late summer fishing around Anna Maria Island

Capt. Taylor Cowieson
September 2, 2021
Bradenton - Saltwater Fishing Report

We are in our slow season here in Anna Maria Island. Traffic is not nearly as bad, restaurants not as packed, and just not that many people visiting on vacation. This gives us time to take care of projects and get things tightened back up before season kicks back in.
With that being said I am still fishing a couple inshore fishing charters a week and we have been catching tons of fish! The redfish have shown up in good numbers with lots of larger over slot fish making for a great arm workout for our clients lately. This is the time of year that there is the chance of running across a school of hungry redfish and catch 20+ fish in a matter of an hour! The mangrove snapper are still around in good numbers which are keeping clients happy taking home great eating fillets for fish tacos. The gag grouper bite is getting better and better in Tampa Bay with a few legal sized fish being caught on our inshore fishing charters lately. The grouper action gets better and better as we get into fall. The Spanish mackerel are around and we should start to see more of them mixed in with the ladyfish and jacks that are schooling and feeding heavily on bait schools getting ready to push up the Manatee River to spend the winter.
The boat traffic is minimal on Tampa Bay for the next month and there is action packed fishing going on. If you are looking to book an inshore fishing charter in the Bradenton or Anna Maria Island area give me a call or text 813-220-8725. I have plenty of availability for the month of September.
