Tampa fishing Report for September 2020

TAMPA FISHING REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER 2020

We are coming to an end for the summer of 2020. While this year has been full of surprises in the fishing world from Covid 19, we have stayed busy late summer and our fishing charters have been successful. Snook, Redfish, Grouper, Cobia, Tarpon, Trout and many others have been boat side this summer. Here is your Tampa fishing report for September.

Redfish

Redfish are the highlight this month as big schools of breeder fish gather up in the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. Redfish have been very plentiful this year with fish schooling up in good numbers especially around the new and full moons. I really like fishing the lower tides and finding fish on the outer flats roaming around eating anything in front of them. Both live and artificial baits are good options. I like throwing something with good weight to add to the distance on your cast. One of my favorite baits when fishing in Tampa bay is the z man chatter bait. The chatter bait works well when targeting big schools of Reds. It has plenty of weight, has flash and makes noise. This checks off all the boxes when looking for a bait to fish schools of Redfish in Tampa Bay.

Snook

Snook this time of year on the Tampa Bay flats. It’s not uncommon to catch 30 Snook on a fishing charter as we approach fall fishing in Tampa Bay. Snook  are some of our top sought after species for the month of September. Its just another species we target and make September fishing in Tampa so good.

Grouper and Snapper

Next on the list for the Tampa fishing report in September would have to be Mangrove Snapper and Gag Grouper. Both fish are considered nearshore or offshore fish but with the great Tampa fishing we have the pleasure of catching both species right inside the bay. This happens just a few minutes from the dock. Both Grouper and Snapper are plentiful and make for a great table fair. Sizes on Grouper for Tampa Bay are seasonal and have a minimum size of 24 inches and a bag limit of 2. For more information of the Grouper regulations https://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/recreational/groupers/

Snapper have a different size with a minimum size of 10 inches and 5 per person. They are also open year-round.

Looking forward to fishing with you!

Thanks!

As the nation opens up and things get back to normal I’m glad to report we have been busy on the water running charters and catching fish.Tampa Bay fishing report for June of 2020 June is a transition month as summer hits us full swing. This means great fishing and lots of heat mixed with some rain every afternoon. You can expect to have some great fishing trips when fishing in Tampa Bay.

Tarpon fishing report

The spotlight for the month would have to be Tarpon. Thousands of fish migrate up the coast just off the beaches of Tampa Bay and St Petersburg. Tarpon are one of those fish that many consider a bucket list fish. While they take a lot of effort and patience you can find good success this time of year as they are very plentiful. Tarpons are a fish that will give you all you got and at the end of the fight you will wonder who caught who as you gasp for air on your next Tampa fishing excursion. Tarpon should be here all the way through the end of the summer so don’t forget to book your next Tampa fishing charters right here… This is your Tarpon fishing report

Tampa Bay Snook Fishing Report

Next on the list would have to be Snook. This is my all time favorite as I have enjoyed targeting them since I was a little child. If you like bass fishing then you will love Snook fishing. It’s something everyone should experience. Tampa Bay Snook fishing is some of the best in the state of Florida. Summer time is a great time to target them as they spawn throughout the summer. Fishing for Snook around the new and full moon will give you your best shot at a big female as they stack up around the passes and outer flats this time of year. It’s a great time to do some Snook fishing.. Snook fishing reports are good this time of year.

It’s typically flat calm and the Mangrove Snapper are schooled up at just about every reef and rockpile in Tampa Bay. Mangrove Snapper are awesome fighters and are also great eating fish. In the mist of Snapper fishing you will also find some great Gag Grouper fishing as well. These same areas hold big Gag grouper and if you’re really lucky you might run across a Cobia in the same area. 

Tampa Bay Redfish fishing report

Latest would be Redfish. Most think this to be a spring fish but we actually get some big schools of fish in the middle of the summer. Big schools of Reds is something everyone should experience at least one time. Redfish make for a great fight and you can catch fish exceeding 30 inches and shallow water. Book here is you are looking to catch some of the bronze bruisers.
