November is the month that moves most inshore fish from the flats to the backcountry creeks,docks, and rivers. It’s a month you will enjoy as great weather and great is fishing without waking up at the crack of dawn. Snook fishing on the South Shore in particular has some is some of the best around as this area plays host to four major river systems. These areas provide an excellent warm water refuge for Snook among other species throughout the winter. Bait of choice would have to be Greenbacks and will be a bit of a challenge as bait has shifted to deeper waters. Shrimp is a great alternative if you don’t want to put in the effort or time to get greenbacks. These same areas that you will find Snook will also hold Reds and Trout and this is where the Shrimp will sometimes outproduce Greenbacks this time of year. Trout will also be very productive on the grass flats. Its also a good time to dust out the bag of artificial bait. Grab your bag of soft plastics and start casting away, Trout will not be far behind. If you would like to book a Tampa fishing charter give me a call on my cell 813-727-9890
