ABOUT

Tampa Bay area fishing guide. I've lived most of my life in SW FL and love the versatility of fishing Tampa Bay. The flats fishing is excellent for snook, redfish, tripletail and trout while the deeper waters within the bay are home to healthy mangrove snapper and grouper.

    Tampa Bay February Snapper

    February 21, 2021

    2/20/21 The wind was wild and the bay was 3.9′ We started out in the little Manatee River catching black drum and snook. After 2 hours the wind slowed down and we decided to head out into the bay for mangrove snapper. The wave height was 3′ with a few 5′ swells as we made our short run. The action was non stop fish were biting live greenbacks, shrimp pieces and cut threadfins. We barely had time to close the bail before the bite. We fished an hour and a half and finished with a nice box. Book a trip to experience the fun. 865-363-1388

      Tampa Bay January report

      The mangrove snapper bite is heating up. Fishing deep bridge pilings and rocks have held many snapper, sheepshead and grunts. Dropping knocker rigs or hog ball type jigs from 3/8 to 1 oz depending on current and tipped with medium sized shrimp or live greenbacks will fill a cooler fast. Snook, trout and redfish are still fun to play with as season remains closed. Contact me to book a trip.

        Gulf side report

        April 15, 2020

        Gulf offshore bite is heating up with plenty of kings and blackfin moving in close. King mackerel can be found in Tampa Bay and all around nearshore reefs and schools of baitfish. The blackfin tuna are in as close as the nearshore ship anchorage where several cruise ships are anchored. The ships are a great place to start for kings and blackfin tuna but get there early to beat the crowd. Free lined live bait or trolling ballyhoo rigs is the best bet.
