Tampa Bay – Bradenton – Sarasota – Boca Grande


Report Date: March 8, 2010

Winter is almost over! Lately, the cold fronts that have swept through Tampa Bay havenít lasted long. They have brought some pretty chilly temperatures to the area, but they didnít last long. The weather and water temperature is not even close to what it was last year at this time, but donít fretÖ It is going to warm up soon. The fish just might be adapting to the cold weather and water temperatures because fishing has been really good lately. The fish arenít the only ones that have had to adapt to the cold weather, I have too. For the most part, it has been fun hunting for new areas to

fish and trying new ways to catch the fish. Although this winter has been an adventure, Iím looking forward to a change. The first day of spring is right around the corner. Iím ready for some Sunny Florida skies and warm temperatures.

It has been a colder March than years past, but it hasnít stopped the fish from biting. Some fish are even starting to show up in the areas we normally find them this time of year. Once the water temperature rises about 5 degrees, we will be able to put down artificial bait and start fishing with live bait. Some shiners have even started to show up on some of the flats. We are going to start seeing more changes in the near future.

In the meantime,

weíve still been fishing in the rivers. Weíve been catching a number of fish on jigs that have been 16 inches to 20 inches. Weíve caught redfish, snook, trout, and flounder. You never know what youíre going to catch when youíre fishing with jigs because you cover such a great area of water.

Sheepshead fishing has been awesome. The fish are not only fun to catch, but also good to eat. We caught a 5 plus pounder last week. Man, these fish put up a great fight. Sheepshead fishing will remain good until it warms up. Please visit www.castwaychartersinc.com and book your trip today!
