Fall Fishing in Tampa Bay

Fall fishing in Tampa Bay produces some nice catches of Trout,Red drum and Snook.

This is the time of year that we start fishing the back water creeks and canals. Snook, Red drum and Trout all migrate to these areas as our water temps dip into the low 70s. They are all looking for that easy meal as they roam the deeper water in search of prey that is being flushed off of the near by oyster bars. Shrimp ,Crabs,and small bait fish all make these places home. These narrow creeks and canals also provide good tidal flow.

The following pictures are some examples of what has been caught on our charters this past month. With mild conditions I expect this to be the trend through November.

I expect to spend some time these next few months on the open waters of Tampa Bay also. Some folks enjoy the open water and the fish it provides. Spanish Mackerel are still roaming the area. We are also catching Jack Cravelle and boy do they put up a great fight! We will also turn out attention to the inshore rock piles,wrecks and artificial reefs. These will soon hold Sheepshead along with Mangrove Snapper. These species make great tasting table fare. Lunch anyone? I will be happy to recommend a great restaurant to cook the catch of the day.

We are looking forward to a great fall season. Dont miss out on an opportunity to have some steady action and bent rods on a fall fishing charter.  We cater to both experienced and novice anglers. This is a great time of year to bring family and friends for some fall fishing action. If you have not experienced fall fishing in Tampa Bay this is a great time of year to beat the heat and enjoy mild temperatures while fishing.
