Fall Fishing Tampa Bay!
Temperatures in Tampa Bay have sparked a good inshore chew!The redfish, snook and speckled sea trout are starting to fatten up for the winter months ahead. Look for them to start bunching up in the river mouths and deeper backcountry cuts as they make their way up into the Tampa Bay rivers towards their winter time huants. There is still plenty of white bait around in Tampa Bay and chumming with live pilchards will continue to prove productive until the first freeze. Once water temps start to dip into the low 60's the game will change. Tampa Redfish and snook will start to slow down as they attempt to conseve energy, during this time a slow retrieve produces the best results. cutting the tails or fins on your white bait & pinfish will slow them down and increase your hook-up percentage. Fish the bottom with cut bait, shrimp or artificals, a slow retrieve is going to be vital for suscess during cold water condtions. Exspect the snook bite to diminish once water temperatures drop below 60 degrees. Redfish are more cold water tolerant and should continue to feed, but with less vigor.
Tampa's speckled sea trout are becomming more active, this is a time great to dust off your favorite top water plug! Shrimp on a popping cork will also get it done , but for big gator trout nothing beats a big pinfish! Trout season in our region will close for the months of November & December, so catch and release with care. Tampa Bay fishing Report- Captain Sean Hagen "Fishing Like A Pro With Eupro!"
