Tampa, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Upper Tampa Bay

The baits small but fishable with smaller hooks and if you chum with the smaller size greenies the fish will eat them. Its called match the hatch and we had a successful day on Thursday and Friday. We caught several nice snook and a few smaller redfish. The mackerel bite is still good and the same principle applies, just chum with the smaller baits and hold onto your tackle. Remember trout season is close in the southern region beginning November the first and remains closed until January the first 2010.
