Fishing Reports from fishing charter st pete, Fl

Tampa  Bay Fishing report

July 2019 : As we make our way into later summer, we can definitely count on hot weather with daily rain showers which can really stir up the water in some areas. At times like this,if you find the cleaner water you will find the fish. Although the tarpon migration is coming to an end they still can be found in our upper bays and rivers. Finger mullet or little ladyfish should get the job done on those silver beauties. As far as the bait goes the old saying is to match to the hatch and you well have a productive day. 

Tampa Bay Redfish triple
April 2019:Fishing has been fantastic this month and a lot of fun with lots of fish being caught running a fishing charter from st. pete, FL. The primary suspects have been mostly snook with red fish making a comeback in large numbers. This time of year bait is plentiful and fish are seeking to find that tasty little morsel called the scaled sardine or also known as white bait. You can locate them on structure or on the flats by using fish food and jack mackerel. If your the artificial type you can through top water plugs in the morning and switch to swim baits or spoons in the afternoon to resemble the scaled sardine. The water temp is climbing and the  tarpon migration is on the rise. This time of year of it is not uncommon to run a fishing charter in st. pete, Fl to Sarasota as the migration follows the coast

February 2019: As the days are cooling down and the fronts become more consistent, fish can feel the weather change and are on the move! This is the time of year to bust out the artificials or fly and go on a hunting expedition, stalking the flats for your trophy. It is also a great time of year to still throw live bait if you can still find either in the skinny water mud or deeper water structure. Which either tactic you prefer this can be an awesome time fishing Tampa Bay as the water clears up and negative tides start coming, you can see what is actually out there with the right patience.
