Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report
November is here!
Along with it are the cold fronts that traditionally follow.
The water temps are falling with each passing front and the kingfish bite near the beach is turning on. Tons of bait are bringing the kings, spanish mackerel and bonita within only a mile or so of the beaches and often even closer. These fish are hungry and eager to eat!
The inshore grouper bite has been on fire when we're able to get out between blows. Lots of keeper fish coming over the rail! These are real bruiser fish in only 5-15 feet of water. When you hook one of these slobs, HOLD ON!
The redfish bite continues to be consistent on the flats. A variety of artificials are catching their share along with live shrimp, whitebait and pinfish.
The trout bite has really picked up with some bigger fish starting to show more often. Finding these fish in 3-6 feet of water over healthy grass.
The snook are in transition. We're finding 'em in the same places we would find the in the spring.
Plenty of fish out there to be caught so book your trip now!
Also, now booking for the 2009 tarpon season. Book early to get a shot at the best dates!
Tight Linez & Screamin' Dragz!
