Tampa Bay Fly Fishing Report

Capt. Brian Jill
April 24, 2010
Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

It's feeling more and more like summer everyday in the Tampa Bay area. With water temps in the mid to upper 70's in Tampa Bay the Fly Fishing has been fantastic. Snook are beginning to make their appearance and are hungry! Night time dock light fly fishing has been a sure way to catch a few line siders, while searching the clear water flats near structure, holes, and drop offs is another great way to locate them during the day. Flies that work well during the day are olive/white, chartreuse/white, yellow/white baitfish patterns and clousers for deeper water. Under the lights any small white, flashy fly should get the job done. Reds are spread out on the flat this time of the year and can also be found around lighted docks at night. They will eat a size 4-6, dark brown/black toad style crab, bendback, or a clouser on the flats. The Tarpon are beginning to show at some select locations. These are all resident fish that are just becoming active and feeding. The big schools of migratory fish will begin to show in our waters this May through the summer. I have all the necessary Tarpon equipment needed for fly fishing as well as all the best flies. I specialize in shallow water sight fishing with the fly rod but will take out light tackle artificial charters as well.

Book your next fly fishing adventure with Capt Brian Jill and the Lost Coast Anglers and fly fish in the shallow waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico for Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, and more!!!
