Tampa, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Central Tampa Bay

Despite the heat and humidity the bite was strong on both days. Although it did seem a little better in the afternoon. The mackerel, snapper, trout and snook we're eating a free lined greenbacks.

Surprisingly while mackerel fishing we caught several nice gags in open flat bottom. Actually it shouldn't be a surprise as Tampa Bay has plenty of limerock hard bottom with that looks like swiss cheese.

Big inshore snapper are always fun we're catching them from 14 to 19 inches.
