19 Jun Summer Fishing Fun!
Its time for some summer fishing fun! This is the time of year family’s decide to by pass long hot lines at Disney World and opt to spend a day fishing on the beautiful waters of Tampa Bay. What better way is there to spend one of your vacation days taking in the sights and bending that fishing rod?
This month has been a great month for a variety of fishing. We have been catching Snook, Trout,Mangrove Snapper, Grouper, Big Jacks and Sharks!
Children have a great fascination with Sharks. So do I! There is an amazing variety of Sharks that prowl our waters this time of year. We have Bull Sharks, Hammer Heads, Spinner Sharks (Spinners make some spectacular jumps when hooked) Black Tips,Bonnet Head and Atlantic Sharp Nose. All of these Sharks are safely caught,handled and most of the time released. You may not know but Shark can be some great fish to put on the grill for a nice dinner.
Mangrove Snapper is a great fish to target if you want to put a nice meal on the table. One of the tastiest fish Tampa Bay has to offer you will enjoy the fight they put up on light tackle. The best part about targeting them is you never know what else you may catch.
Snook and Trout are also being caught on our charters. Its all catch and release on Snook right now,but Trout may be kept and also make for great table fare.
Big Jacks!! If you want to play tug of war with these its that time of year. Large schools of Big Jacks have invaded Tampa Bay. Pound for pound they are one of the hardest fighting fish Tampa has to offer. Its a true rush to experience the hard hits and screaming drag of the light tackle. You’re arms will need a rest after battling these beast of the bay!
Come enjoy some Summer Fishing Fun with Tampa Flats and Bay Fishing Charters!
