Hog Snapper

 
—New year’s eve day gave a break in the wind, and allowed for some more reef fishing off of the beaches. We decided to target hog snapper, as well as mangrove snapper and grouper. The hog snapper are very picky, and require long and light leaders. Small weights and hooks must be used also. They fight hard and taste great!

— Despite the persistent South wind last week, we got offshore to do some reef fishing. Bait has been harder to find, but live pilchards and shrimp on offshore structure have been productive when paired with a moving tide.

Kingfish, Mangrove Snapper, Sharks

—This week, Tampa Bay and Anna Maria Island fishing has been defined by strong South winds, and tough, but surprisingly productive fishing. Nearshore fishing has produced Spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, sheepshead, and some flounder. Offshore reef fishing has been providing larger mangrove snapper bites, as well as sharks in high numbers, and the occasional kingfish.

Triple Tail Fishing

—Winter is slowly creeping in, and some great triple tail fishing has come with it. Triple tail are strange-looking and hard-fighting fish that come close to shore during the winter months. They can usually be found far offshore under floating debris, but from November to February they come close to land and huddle under the numerous crab trap buoys.
