Fishing report from Cody B. in Tampa, Florida

    Cold weather has the redfish, snook and trout fired up! Water clarity is improving and water temps are dropping in the bay so sight casting big redfish and snook in shallow water is awesome right now. Big tides and prime water temps have our big predatory fish active and eating all day. 30-40 fish per trip right now is the norm so inshore fishing is on fire right now.

    Fishing in July is Hot! Early Morning bite is the best for inshore Reds, shark fishing is active in the Harbor. Fishing in July can be extremely productive but everyday is different and we are just a couple of months away from the best fishing we have to offer and that is the fall bite!

Fishing report from Wade O. in Tampa, Florida Book a trip with Captain Wade here.

    July started off with a BANG! Fishing has been outstanding for the most part. The majority of what’s been biting are snook, mangrove snapper, seatrout, silver trout, Spanish mackerel, sharks, and a few redfish. Sure, there have been a few days where the fish bite has been slow, but that’s why it’s called fishing. If you’re looking to keep some fish for dinner, the only species that’s closed to harvest right now is snook. Other than that, putting fish in the box has been a given. So, if you’re looking to catch dinner or just catch and release, book your adventure today.

    Galveston bay complex is in great shape, the water is clearing with high tide. Overall fishing is very good catching specks, redfish and lots of pan fish. Using live shrimp or live croakers. It's a great time to get the kids out for a fun fishing trip. Thanks, Captain Mike.

Fishing report from John R. in Tampa, Florida

    It's officially Spring in Tampa Bay Area. Snook are all over the place and are feeding well. Water temp's are right where they should be which puts the fish in a good mood, which means bent rods and screaming drags. Live bait is the best choice, but if you like tossing artificials, no worries, you'll catch your fair share as well. Here are a few lures that I like when targeting snook, redfish and trout. Headon's Spookis my go to for top-water. For redfish, and trout, I like tossing a 4"paddle tail ( colors: white and clear with red metal-flake ). Snook in Tampa Bay are live bait feeders, but you can still get them to eat artificials. I like a 1/8oz snake-lock jig head with a ZMan Paddlerz. Schools of redfish are also showing up on the flats in a few areas. These fish are very boat shy, so be quiet and patient and you'll hook a few. Once again, live or cut bait has been the best way to hook these skittish bronze beauties. Some of the redfish schools have been beat up by some fishermen, but that’s just how it goes with the amount of boaters on the water these days, so again, be patient and you'll hook a few. They are mostly oversized fish, which means your drag is gonna scream. The sheepshead bite is still going strong in Tampa Bay, and the rock piles, jetties and bridges have been producing some nice catches. Live shrimp, fiddler and mud crabs have been the baits of choice.

    Inshore trout and sheepshead around the beaches has been awesome. Offshore the hogfish bite is crazy good but about one out of ten is a keeper.

    Well, two weeks ago, the water tem dropped 12 degrees in a day and a half due to a strong cold front that came over the state of Florida and shut down our inshore fishing bite one thing we deal with is acclamation, whether the water drop or rises, can shut the fish down for a few days so our focus is fishing around the hot water discharge at local power plants this actually opens up fishing opportunities for us what we only get when the temps plummet sharks, Pompano, Permit, and cobia are just part of the fish that take advantage of the warmer water, along with tarpon, manatees and rays.

Fishing report from Joshua B. in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina

    Fly fishing has been awesome with the weather we have been gifted. Sight casting schools is always a classic for my charters. Shark fishing has been a blast on light tackle, sight fishing them also! Lady fish, and Spanish on fly rod also! Albies are also starting to show up!

    Fishing in hot summer waters can sometimes be tough, but with the right tides, depths and bait, some fish are still biting! Mangrove Snapper, Spanish Mackerel and the Sharks are on fire right now. Fish are going in the cooler and clients are leaving the docks with bags of meat. With cooler waters just around the corner Redfish will start biting hard in Tampa Bay.
