Tampa, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Upper Tampa Bay
Woody Gore

Everything is eating and we're catching plenty of fish. The snook and trout bite been exceptional and should continue through the summer. The big mackerel are filling in the gaps along with blue fish, really big lady fish and a flounder or two in the mix. You also might get the opportunity to hook into a nice cobia; they're on the flats with big rays. Mangrove snapper are really strong around any structure and especially bridges and artificial reefs.

Pilchards are on any grass flat, just chum them up and throw your net.
