Beach Snook Action Tampa Bay

Capt. Steven Markovich
June 10, 2013
Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Sundays plan was simple, load the live well with whitebaits before sunrise, pick up clients, catch snook. Bait was resistively easy after a few minutes of chumming and several tosses from my 10' cast net. My first toss resulted in 2 manta rays…. not was I was looking for! 20 minutes later the live well was full.

I was talking to my anglers on how we would target the snook. I made the first cast explaining cast up current and allow the bait to drift naturally. Before I could hand the rod over a snook blew up and was taking drag.

I love it first cast first snook. For several hours we had nice snook action. Occasionally the bite would slow but chumming fixed that and got the bite going again.

Like all my trips lately it wasn't long before we had a big fish on. My angler did a great job keep this 30 something beast on for 10 minutes before landing.

Quick pictures and safe release.

Like the last few days we stayed in one area for hours catching snook. The tactic is simple free lined white baits cast up current drifting near the sandy beach is all it takes. I like 15 pound braided line, 3' of 25 pound fluorocarbon leader finished with a 2/0 circle hook.

We did manage a few trout for dinner but could not find any redfish.
