Tampa Bay – Bradenton – Sarasota – Boca Grande

Tampa Bay its that time of the year for fishing!

Report Date: April 13, 2011

The Florida sun is blazing. It went straight from winter to summer, but after the brutally cold spring and winter we had two years you wont here me complain. Much like a fish, Ill take hot weather over cold weather any day. Lately, fishing has been great. It has produced non-stop action just like we like it!

Every trip weve managed to put a fish in the air. This week, we landed a 160 lb after a great fight. That 160 lb is just the start of what is to come in the future. More and more tarpon are appearing every day.

The grouper bite is happening! We have caught our limit of grouper in the Bay on more than one occasion. It has been great fun, and I think we are going to see more of it over the next few weeks.


redfish bite has been hit or miss lately. Although weve caught redfish everyday, some days it takes harder work than others to catch them. A bad tide is mostly the reason for the redfish decreased appetite, but that should change next week when the tides improve. The redfish we have caught have been in the slot with a couple over sized fish mixed in. The numbers of redfish in the Bay are great, and if it keeps warming up, the bite will get much better.

Trout fishing

is phenomenal. Get out on the edge of a flat, and you can just about catch as many trout as you want and then some. The sizes of the fish are great too.


are a bit has been really good, you find them they are feeding. Weve caught a number of great fish last week. I am so happy to see that there are not only still snook around after our cold winter last year, but that they are also biting. Please visit www.castawaychartersinc.com and book your trip today
