November Fishing Report

Capt. Taylor Cowieson
November 29, 2018
Bradenton - Saltwater Fishing Report

The month started out with warmer than normal temperatures here in Southwest FL. Last week we had a cold front move through our area and the clearer water made the bait a little more skittish. The snook and seatrout were very cooperative all thanksgiving week leading up to the full moon, which made for lots of action and fun for our guests on our fishing charters.

The snook are still transitioning to their winter haunts and finding a hungry school can provide fast action. There have also been some scattered redfish patrolling the flats. Patience, being still and quiet has been the key to getting a bite, most have been slot sized fish. The Manatee River is starting to hold more fish as well, large schools of jacks and ladyfish have been migrating up the river and will eat pretty much anything you throw in front of their faces and also the sheepshead are starting to show up at some of bridges.

The past couple days have been cold and windy as another stronger front moves through Bradenton and Anna Maria Island area which has pushed bait off the flats and into deeper areas in Tampa Bay.
Offshore the Kingfish have made an arrival and also some blackfin tuna have been mixed in with them. I have been trolling for the kings and doing well with some 20-30 lb fish in the mix. After this front the kingfish action should be really good.

If you are looking for a fishing charter in the Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, or Siesta Key give me a call and I can accommodate whether you have young kids that have never been fishing or are looking for a trophy fish. 813-220-8725 or email [email protected]
