December Reds, Snook, & Sea Trout In Tampa Bay
Went out Yesterday December 18th, 2017 looking to target groceries! Your probably wondering what does he mean by "groceries". The family is always wondering why we barely eat the fish we catch and I sat back and wondered the same thing.
Day started out real slow bait was tougher then sonny's barbecue ribs. Tampa bay's tides/weather have the bait out of wack this week! Finally after running around tower to tower we pull up to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and find some bait holding down on the bottom in about 15 to 20ft. I take my Barracuda 10ft 1.4lb cast net toss it once and bam one and done! After we managed to catch bait we ventured off into new areas we haven't fished before on a negative tide.
When scouting new areas i always like to go on a low negative tide so I know where all the Rocks/Oyster bars are. You can't hit them if you see them! If you can run where your trying to get on a good negative tide you will never have issues getting in or out of the spot. Makes it a lot less stressful not having to wonder if your gonna be stuck on a flat!
Ended up finding some nice fat winter trout and a couple juvenile snook. Caught are limit of trout in about 25 minutes all between 22 to 25 inches and really fat. Later on we started on are way back towards some good spots we know just need some more water to get to them and with us doing some scouting and burning time it was just about right to get on those big redfish I'm known for!
Caught a couple rat reds some good slot snook and a 29 inch redfish that weighed 12.4lbs MAN THAT THING WAS A MONSTER!
Finished up the day with some groceries!
