  6. Captain's Corner: Target the afternoon tides this weekend


    We'll likely see quite a bit more weather this second half of winter than we saw the first half. We'll get a little warmup this weekend, then another good-sized front midweek. The windows for productive fishing are much smaller. Typically it takes about three days for fish to become active after a front. This usually means another one is coming as we start to see a wind switch out of the south. Targeting the afternoon tides gives you the best shot at a good bite this weekend. Redfish numbers have increased after the most recent full moon, and we should see those fish gather in the shallows for the next couple of months. Artificial lures often are more productive now than live bait. Have the water column covered with a topwater plug, a gold spoon and soft plastics that can be rigged weed-less. Live shrimp can yield fish out of an area when pockets of fish are found. The trout bite should improve with cooler temperatures. Find the adult-sized trout schooled up around many of the spoil islands and flats with hard edges that might drop off into a channel. Fish the edges at lower tides. The spoil islands usually produce best midway through the incoming tide. …

  10. Captain's Corner: Redfish are biting


    Redfishing has been hot over the last few weeks. They're in flats with larger striped mullet that they can school with, hiding among the mullet as dolphin invade the flats looking for easy meals. On high tides, look for mangrove shorelines where mullet are jumping near the limbs or schooling along the branches and overhangs. Cutbaits cast into the shadows of the bushes will attract a bite. Fish each section for about 15 minutes while chumming with cut pieces of bait. If there is no action, move farther down the line. Redfish often pick a different oyster bar or mangrove cutout to occupy from day to day depending on conditions. Trout are starting to gather along the grass flats inside the passes. Dropoffs around the edges of flats are a holding several trout in all size ranges on lower tides. Small pinfish or sardines under a cork are getting hammered. Freeline baits in deeper potholes scattered throughout the flats to catch bigger female trout. Snook are under pressure in north Pinellas. Make long casts to beach troughs and cuts with current, staying a good distance from these cautious fish. The turn of the tide has been the best time to target snook. The early morning bite has been the most productive for the linesiders. …

  13. Captain's Corner: Snook on the move


    The snook run is moving south from upper Tampa Bay to the bridges close to the beach. The best spots are the docks on the west side of the bay and the spoil islands close to the beach. During low tides, fish the potholes on the outside of the docks. When the tide is high, fish under the docks. You can use light tackle during low tide, 15-pound line and a 30-pound leader will draw the most strikes. During higher tides, use 30-pound line and 40-pound leader to keep the snook out of the pilings. The top bait has been threadfins. The best action is when the tide is moving. Most of the snook are moving toward the beach. Give each spot 15 minutes before moving to the next. During the spring migration, the fish you found the day before will have moved from that area and closer to the beach. During most of trips, we will find fish on half the stops that held fish the day before. Drift up to areas that have produced fish on past trips and move to the next spot when that area doesn't produce fish. Another way to increase your chances is to scout areas by slowly idling and look for snook to swim away as the boat gets close. Boats with a 4 stroke engine get you closer to snook than a trolling motor. …
