Fishing here in the Tampa Bay area has blown wide open. The water temperatures are up in the high 70’s, and all our migratory species have shown up. The kingfish, cobia and permit are on the near shore reefs eating shiners, pinfish and crabs. Red grouper are plentiful further out, and the gag grouper season starts June 1st. Inshore, this has been the best spring snook season we’ve had in years. Multiple fish in the five to fifteen pound range have come across our gunwales, putting smiles on many faces. Trout and redfish continue to fill the inshore slam on most charters. Although we have caught several tarpon over the past couple of months, the true migration has just begun. Over the years we have been fortunate to collect a good number of return clients that we now call friends. Although they have booked us for most of tarpon season, we still have availability these next couple of months.
Whether you want to fish the flats, the near shore reefs or chase tarpon, give us a call and we will make it happen.
