Tampa Fishing Charters for Redfish

The Tampa Bay fishing for redfish has exploded recently. Around high water we have been absolutely crushing them. Big schools are following mullet along the South Shore. They will eagerly take a cut pinfish or live pilchard. I have also had success with gold spoons as well as jerk baits. The key to catching these fish is being there either an hour before or after high tide. I have been focusing on area oyster bars as well as mangrove shorelines. I like the mornings because of lower water temperatures.

There are plenty of small and medium tarpon around to play with. Being there at first light when they are the most active is absolutely critical. A well placed cast with a gurgler or a tan toad will do the job. We are quickly approaching the best fly fishing for snook of the year. After spawning these fish will migrate to the back country in large groups. As the water temps start to fall, they will feed all day long. Baitfish patterns are usually best when targeting snook with a fly rod. It will be show time in no time at all. Get more information on Tampa Fly Fishing.

With the kids back in school and summer winding down the water is less crowded and the fishing is great. Give me a call at 305-340-9863 or visit Tampa Fishing Charters to book a trip.
