Tampa Bay January Fishing Report Anna Maria Island fishing remains strong. The water has cooled a bit since my last report as it tries to get back down to more normal temperatures for this time of year. It can be tricky fishing when the water temps hit that low 62 to 63 degree mark. The fish kind of want to be in the springtime spots but kind of want to be in their winter spots; sometimes they ...full report

Happy New Year!! And boy what a new year it has been.

HERNANDO LAKE In Hernando Fl

I am new to the area, and have not had much time to fish the lake, but in the past three trips I have been killing the jumbo Bluegills and Black Crappie. I am originally from Northern Michigan so that's what we call them. I think down here they may be called Bream and Specs, I'm not sure though. On 2/15/13 I caught 12 gills the largest on was 12.5 inches long and 6.75 inches from top to bottom. ...full report

We also landed a small Flounder and 6lbs. Sheepshead using Gulp® Sand Fleas on a red jig. From 8:30AM until 10:30AM, action stopped dead, other than pinfish and other small fish stealing our bait. As we were reeling ...full report

Pasco County waters have been heating up, with a number of King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and Trout being caught in virtually any depth of water. The tides have been strong, and so has the bite on live and artificial baits. Movement of the bait has been the key to targeting different species. Faster movements with flashy baits will produce the Kings and Spanish. Slower movement on the top ...full report
