Inshore fishing remains strong!

Capt. Taylor Cowieson

Bradenton - Saltwater Fishing Report

On most of our fishing charters this month we have been fishing the waters of the Manatee river and the lower half of Tampa bay including Terra Cia bay. We have been targeting snook, tarpon, redfish, and mangrove snapper. We were also on a decent seatrout bite on some deeper grass flats but as of May 11 they are catch and release so I am limiting the amount of times we target trout now.

The snook have been providing the most action on our trips with a couple dozen caught on most trips and some lucky anglers even got to catch upwards of 50 snook! We have also been getting some decent sized mangrove snappers for the dinner table for anglers looking to bring something home for dinner.

The tarpon are here and we have been seeing them in most of their normal spots migrating up the beaches and around egmont key. I have hooked some juvenille fish inside of the river on several charters as well.

The summer fishing action is here and will remain great for the next couple months so give me a call at 813-220-8725 to get out on the water and catch some fish!
