Tampa Bay Tarpon, Jacks, and Redfish

Capt. Brandon Henley
August 28, 2017
Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

It was an incredibly busy tarpon season for me so this is my first report in months. The tarpon fishing was fantastic when the weather would cooperate. The good news is the winds have died, and the tarpon will be chewing until December at least. You just need to know where to find our resident fish in the fall.

The redfish bite has really picked up for me as of late. I have been catching a lot of over slot fish on high water. Fall typically produces the best redfish action and it kicks off the season when they eat artificials and flies best.

Fall is also a great time to target jack crevalle in Tampa Bay. Hordes of hungry jacks will push around in search of bait. These fish are great fun on light tackle and a blast on fly.
