Tampa Bay Inshore-Offshore fishing report

Capt. Brady Nelson
March 17, 2014
Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Inshore fishing is heating up on the grass flats. The redfish have went on the chew biting alot better than they were in the previous weeks, with big slot sized fish in the 8lb range. The water temp is working its way up and thats giving them the appetite they need to gobble up our baits. Snook are feeding on and around the mangrove edges now, and nice sized speckled trout have been getting more abundant. Spanish mackeral are filling coolers along with snapper,

flounder and a few cobia.

Offshore fishing is awesome when the wind lets us out there. Lots of cobia are being spotted and giving us quite a few opportunities to sight fish them, totally a great thrill. Mangrove snapper in the 15 -20" range along with nice flounder have been abundant and hitting hard some trips are limiting out on both. Spanish mackeral ,bluefish, jacks and big 22-30" gag grouper are keeping us busy out there as well.

Come on out and get your fish on
