Tampa Bay Snook Fishing In December
The abnormally warm weather pattern has kept the local inshore action around the Tampa Bay area very much alive. The presence of bait such as pilchards on some of the local piers and bridges has kept this inshore bite exciting and rewarding. Although the weather patterns may be inconsistent, the bite still remains the same.
Fishing for snook in a local estuary named Robinson's Preserve has historically been productive year after year. Fortunately enough the snook bite has been consistent as of this week. The preserve has a warmer bottom that the snook appreciate during the colder months.
Recently as of this week, I fished on a low incoming tide and caught several snook in the slot size and several more under slot. Using a shrimp lure or live baiting (live shrimp has seen the most bites). Trout and reds still are around the docks and grass flats, but the snook has been the most consistent for me while fishing in the bay.
The bite has been at a constant pace, and anglers locally have been producing some quality fish to be caught. Using smaller lures and getting some quality live bait will be your best bet as of now and into next week.
