Clearwater Fishing Reports

Fishing reports from Clearwater, Florida, Early December 2022

Fishing report from Tyson W. in Clearwater, Florida. Book a trip with Captain Tyson here.

    Conditions have been perfect this week for targeting snook, trout and redfish. The bay water temperature has been in the upper 60’s in the morning and mid 70’s in the afternoon. As the afternoon tide rises along with the temperature, fish become more active on the flats. Live bait action has been spectacular in the afternoon. Concentrating efforts on flats that are holding mullet has been the key. Live chumming from an up-tide position will help you locate where the fish are holding. Patiently waiting for your free bees to swim down current into the fish will reveal boils and pops allowing you to see where to set up. Free-line pilchards on medium light spinning gear spooled with 10-pound braid. The light braided line will not only help you sling your bait out to where the fish are, but also help you to feel any subtle bite you might have when fishing an open bail, a tactic that can be deadly effective. Creeks that serve as wintering homes for snook are loading up with fish right now. As our next cold front passes more of the larger fish will enter the creeks. Fishing around sundown will typically give you the best opportunity to hook into some bigger fish. Live pilchards work great, and chumming will get the activity levels of the fish up, but don’t be afraid to send out a larger bait. Pinfish and or finger mullet will really get the attention of a big snook.

    Inshore has been on fire with redfish bite back on track, sheepshead are showing up in strong numbers. Offshore kingfish, Spanish, hog snapper and gags are close to shore. Best time of year to fish!!

    Since the weather keeps fluctuating, most of the fish have been scattered, but are of good quality. We have been encountering Redfish, Trout and snook on the flats, but the tide and area has been crucial. Cut bat and small pinfish are working well. Artificials have been working great, bait such as mirror lures in the skin series such as pinfish or finger mullet have been catching all 3 inshore species. Also soft plastics like exude dart, mirror lure prevoker and gulp on 16th ounce Jighead have produced some big redfish, Trout, and Snook while we are fishing with bait has helped to locate the schools. Also be prepared for cobia or triple tail as they will show up when you least expect it. This happened to us on Tuesday with couple nice cobia.

    Offshore, Spanish Mackerel and Kingfish are running pretty strong, as are grouper and lane snapper. Inshore, the snook is pretty good and the redfish are starting to move into shallower water

    The water has cooled down with the recent fronts. Bait has been plentiful, with scaled sardines, threadfin, shad, ladyfish and blue runners. This has started the nearshore to explode with Spanish Mackerel, and their big brother, the King Mackerel. For the Kingfish there is no bait to big like mackerel, lady fish, or mullet to catch that big smoker The back water bite has been getting better. Redfish are getting to be in good numbers with the cooler water. For the artificial enthusiast, topwater bite will help you locate these bruisers, as well as Speckled Trout. These fish will often be together with the mullet schools. With the extreme lowtides, you can find the Reds tailing on scattered turtle grass or around pot holes. For these conditions, live shrimp, cutbait and soft plastics will be your ideal baits. With higher tides, concentrate on points, oysterbars and spoil islands. Make sure there are mullet in these areas, because the Redfish and Speckled Trout will be there also. The best bait to use now is whitebait, silver dollar size pinfish and cutbait. Your leader should be 2-3 ft. of 20 to 30lb florocarbon, with a 3-4 o/t light style circle hook. As for the fly enthusiast, all species can be caught.

    Rockstar has been into a great variety of fish on recent trips. We have gotten into Mahi-mahi, Bonita, Sharks, grouper, snapper, often times on the same trip! Even near-shore has been fun with plenty of Spanish Mackerel and grunts for the kids!

    The fishing is awesome at the moment, minus the rain every day. If you don't mind getting wet , let's get some lines tight. Fish are already wet they don't mind as long as it's not lightning we're going. Redfish and snook are chewing if you're looking for that drag to scream . Along with tons of mangrove snapper and grunts to fill your cooler.

    Red grouper and mango snapper are still on fire in and around 100 feet. Red snapper are thick and become a nuisance when you can't keep em. But they are big and fun.

    Fishing is starting to fire back off with fall very near. Redfish are starting to chew a lot better and within the next few weeks the bite will be hot. Water temps are starting to drop helping out the bite tremendously. Cooler water and lower tides these big reds start getting caught up in big potholes on the flats . Majority is caught on big ole cut baits

    Fishing has been a little tough due to high water temps but still able to catch quality fish off the beaches in high current situations. Most the big snook and reds have been schooled up off the beaches chasing schools of whitebait and mullet. Havnt been catching high quantities of fish but definitely quality if you're willing to put the time in and grind it out. The high water temps make the fish lethargic, and they aren't willing to exert a lot of energy to chase a bait down, practically have to hit them in the head with it and cross your fingers they don't spook
