Tampa Bay June 4 Fishing Report Anna Maria Island is now known by many as the Tarpon Capital of the world. It’s the words I have been hearing more year after year as our Tarpon Fishery secret leaked out with the boom of the internet and social media. There’s no reason to hide it anymore the way we use to 10 and 15 years ago. Back in the day I would run the beaches for miles in search of ...full report

Tampa Bay, Anna Maria Island Fishing Report The heat has finally turned on around here and it finally feels like June. The past few days the Tarpon have been just pouring in. We really have a large number of Tarpon in the area in just the last few weeks. It seems that on this full moon we received even more. Tarpon are starting to show everywhere. There are schools to the south, schools to the ...full report

Tampa Bay Memorial Day Fishing Report Hi everyone, so sorry it’s been a while since I gave an updated fishing report. I am just so busy during Tarpon season it’s just hard to find the time to sit down and write a report. It’s pretty much eat, sleep and fish this time of year for me and I barely have enough time for the eat and sleep part. I started fishing Tarpon right at the first week ...full report

Summer is finally here. Grouper, Trout, Cobia, Bluefish, Sharks, Tarpon all are in our waters right now. Grouper are moving in to the shallow rocks in 12-18 feet of water. You can bottom drop live or frozen baits, I like to troll plugs this time of year for these hard hitting, drag screaming bruisers. Cobia and Sharks are showing up around the rocky structure areas, look for the rays. Just about any ...full report

Capt Kyle Messier

As to be expected this month our weather has finally stabilized to the point where we can now bank on a typical weather day here along the Nature Coast. Calm cool mornings will now begin giving way to the heat of the day and along with that added warmer weather comes those Oh! so familiar afternoon rain showers. These afternoon rain showers have actually been great catalysts to jump start a bite, ...full report

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


Anclote Fishing Pier

We took our kayak out on the Anclote River for some morning fishing. Bites were steady from 6:30 AM until 8:30 AM. We were landing keeper Mangrove Snappers with live shrimp on a cork. 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

My clients in the Venice beach area have brought news of Blacktips along the beaches. The largest one this week I have seen was 3 feet long, caught on live shrimp. Large Flounder, the biggest one 20 inches are also along the beaches. The best technique I know and heard used this week was using pieces of squid cut into strips and then threaded onto a jig head, bounced off the bottom with a lift-pause-reel, ...full report

Early evening, watch near rock piles and lighted areas such as bridge bumpers where these fish have been holding. Top water baits resembling small Baitfish are the most effective for night time. For Redfish, outgoing ...full report


Pasco County Florida

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
