Windy conditions makes for inshore fishing to be a better option

Windy conditions and low pressure has brought moisture has made this Tarpon season rough but inshore fishing offers a great alternative option for those windy west wind days. As of late we have caught plenty of Snook on the outer flats, Redfish schools are still hanging around and Trout are biting in the 4 to 6 foot range on the flats. Fishing around the stronger tides of the month will increase your chances of a good day on the water but the best time to go fishing is when you can. Greenbacks are the bait of choice but I have had good success using cut Threadfin Herring especially on the slower tide days.Pinfish also make for a great option for both live and cut bait as well. As we edge towards July I look for the bay Tarpon fishing to pick up and also Mangrove Snapper will invade the bay and make for some of my favorite fishing of the year. It’s a great time of year to catch fish in Tampa Bay don’t wait to get out on the water and enjoy what Tampa Bay has to offer. Tightlines.
