I say the King fish are here and Tarpon are showing up as well. We have had good days Kingfishing when we can get out there, some big fish in the 30lb. range are just off shore. Lots of out of season Gag grouper are being caught and some Red grouper as well. Mangrove Snapper have made thier way on deck and into the frying pan, good eats. Key west grunts are always a part of bottom fishing and they are great eating as well. The Tarpon should be here in full swing in the next week or two, my Tarpon rods are ready to have some more line stripped off them, so give me a call and we will get after them. New comers are always welcome and most of my regulars have become good friends, look forward to taking all of you on a great outdoor experiance on the waters of beautiful Tampa Bay.
