The spring bite is on!
Captain Wayne Johnson with www.extremeflatsfishing.com out of Regatta Point Marina located in Palmetto, FL reporting the week of fishing for April 7h of 2012 fishing the lower Tampa Bay, Anna Maria Island, Bradenton Beach, down to Long Boat Key. Fishing this week again has been awesome! We have targeted Snook, Tarpon, and Sea Trout fishing the lower Tampa Bay just south of the Skyway.
The Tarpon bite is still going strong on days you can get out to fish the bridge. We have only fished Tarpon this week once due to the winds and jumped one fish in a couple of hours fishing. The bait of choice so far this season has been Thread Fins fishing the up current side of the bridge. If you can stand the wind you will jump some fish!
Our Trout fishing continues to be phenomenal, if you're looking for a steady bite our Lower Tampa Bay flats' fishing is still off the charts! The best part about targeting these Trout you just do not know what you are going to catch. Along with Sea Trout we have caught Cobia, Black Sea Bass, Flounder, Grouper, and a ton of Mackerel. We have been fishing deep sea grass beds from 6 to 8 feet of water and the action is serious!
Our Snook bite continues to be strong, catching plenty of line-siders in the shallows while back water fishing. The great thing about fishing for Snook is that it's absolutely full of excitement; chumming with white bait and the Snook are popping around the boat, you are more less site fishing the explosion of the Snook hitting the bait at the top of the water. If you want some heart pound action on light line this is the ticket!
The upside while fishing the lower Tampa Bay is there are so many options we can target Tarpon early and when finished we can go catch some Snook; it is your adventure and it's up to me to get you on the fish!
