Winter fishing is on!

January 12, 2019

The Fall pattern is giving way way to colder water temps and winter fishing fun. Winter fishing in Tampa Bay is a whole different ball game compared to the rest of the year. There is a lot of diversity and fishermen must be willing to be flexible in their approach. Some days the air temperature reaches the 80’s and fishing can start to lean toward spring like patterns. This means catching whitebait and fishing potholes and grass edges on the flats for Snook, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout. Other days air temperatures may not reach 60 and winds may be blowing 20-25 out of the north. This means fishing with shrimp and targeting species such as sheephead, mangrove snapper, black drum, pompano and trippletail. This diversity can make Winter fishing a ton of fun. The number of species you can catch on a fishing trip makes it interesting and if you are hoping for some fish dinners, all of these species are delicious.
