Captain's Corner

Captains corner: Redfish and snook following mullet schools

Redfish: Redfish have schooled up around Fort De Soto and south Tampa Bay. They should push into upper Tampa Bay this month. Expect good numbers around Weedon Island and Double Branch. The reds are mixed with the mullet schools. The slack and slow outgoing tide has produced best.

Snook: The snook have been more aggressive in the late morning and afternoon. Most fish have been out on the grass flats also hanging with the mullet schools. When you arrive on a spot, throw the biggest bait you have, without chumming. This should entice the bigger fish. After 15 minutes throw a few handfuls of greenbacks to get the snook going.

Other species: Target tarpon around the Skyway Bridge, but you can catch Spanish mackerel while waiting for a bite. Spanish mackerel, bluefish and small blacktip sharks have been over the sandy shoals around Pinellas Point.

    While Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov grab the headlines, don't sleep on their linemate, Vladislav Namestnikov. Namestnikov is far from a third wheel, with eight points in eight games. "He might not have the names the other two have, but he's as pivotal and vital to that line as the others," coach Jon Cooper said.
