Florida Light Tackle

The weather in the Tampa Bay area was Chamber of Commerce perfect this week with area fishing following suite.

Redfish have regrouped and were readily taking soft plastic jigs and live bait. A few nice Snook were also caught while live baiting for Reds, making the slam quite do-able.

Trout action remains steady. Most are smaller fish with a few in the 18" to 20" range and the odd 4 to 5 pounder.

Cobia are showing up in the mouth of Tampa Bay with some in the 40 pound plus range.
Inshore Grouper action is heating up and Mangrove Snappers are still chewing in Tampa and around the Gulf passes.

Add Spanish Mackerel, big Black Tip Sharks, and the fall Kingfish arrival to the equation, and the month of October is a light tackle bonanza in the Tampa Bay area.

Keep em bent,
