Tampa Bay report

Tampa Bay Offshore Fishing Report
Captain Chuck MacIntyre
Vortex Charters of Tampa Bay

The Kingfish run is in full swing on the Suncoast with banner catches coming in every day!
On a recent Grouper trip 20 miles into the Gulf, we had multiple cut-offs from hungry Kings while dropping frozen sardines in 60 feet of water.
Getting tired of re-rigging everybody’s line, we broke out the Kingfish sticks and proceeded to put 6 in the cooler.

Speaking og Grouper, they have been very active in the 25-60 foot depths. While sabiking bait at the St. Pete artificial reef, we laid out a flat line with a 8 inch blue runner attached. When the reel started screaming, everybody thought “BIG KING”—but it turned out to be a 27 inch Gag Grouper.

Fishing does not get much better than this—so if you’ve got the time get out there!!!

Catch’em up!
