Tampa Bay fishing has been very good. The weather has been a little challenging, but the fish are here and are biting. Fishing South Tampa Bay, out of St Petersburg, the trout bite has been strong with lots of slot fish being caught. The redfish bite has been good on the right tides. And, as always, wintertime snook are here and being caught regularly.
Wintertime can also be a great time to think about inshore grouper fishing. Every year we catch nice-sized grouper inside Tampa Bay. This year has been no exception. Last trip out, we could have filled the cooler 2 or 3 times.
And don’t forget Boca Grande tarpon fishing is fast approaching. Book your trip now while we still have a few days left. I will tell you there is nothing like catching a 150lb tarpon within sight of the historic Boca Grande Lighthouse.
