Tampa Bay River Snook

Tampa, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Tampa Bay

<p>It seems that this year the fish patterns are running a little behind for certain species. For instances, white bait has been hard to find. Usually, the bridges are loaded with nice size green backs, but this year it has taken time to chum the on the flats to get enough bait for a trip. The red fish are starting to show up in places that the usually frequent in May.

Tarpon fishing is still steady, but river snook fishing always gets me excited. The snook in the rivers like good moving water. On a two tide day, I would fish the strongest part of the tide. On normal tide days, just make sure that you do not have a stagnate period during the cycle.

When fishing the rivers do not be scared of fresh water. The fish will be there. Big baits is also a key. If you have never experienced this type of fishing give me a call. Battle large snook and red fish in our Tampa bay area rivers is defiantly a special experience.
