Spring Fishing

Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Spring is here in the Bradenton, Sarasota area. The fishing is on fire. Water temps are in the magic mid seventies. And just about everything that swims is on the hunt for something to eat.

The peak spawn for Sheepshead is just about over.

Lots of nice fish up to seven even eight pounds are on the reefs doing there thing for the next generation. Just drop a fresh piece of shrimp down on a knocker rig and it is game on! The first big schools of Spanish Mackerel showed up this past week. Kingfish are not far behind I here reports just to the south of us. And expect the big mack's any day.

Snook and Reds are pouring out of the back country. They are on the move so one day an area will be on fire and the next you will have to find them.

The good news is all this moving makes them hungry.

Thank You & Good Fishing!
