Spring Snook Fishing is Fantastic

Capt. Trajan Rodriguez
April 9, 2019
Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Snook seem to be at every spot we have been hitting for the couple weeks. They are on just about every flat with a good mixture of sand holes and grass. Some redfish are mixed in, but it has been hard to get through the snook to get a red.

Bait has started to move on the flats and should only get thicker by the day. I recommend a 1/4" mesh net when baiting up on the flats to avoid baits getting gilled.

When fishing for the snook and reds, we have been using 25 lb leader and 2/0 circle hooks.

Kingfish are showing up in the shipping channel and residential tarpon are staging up as well.

Got some days open, lets go fishing!
