Tampa, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
South end of bay

It can get pretty boring when the tides not moving but let it start going in or out and hang onto your fishing pole. The last two trips we caught mackerel, bluefish, snapper and a few gags with one being a slot 22 inches. The snook bite's been exceptional with several fish over 30 inches.

We've also been getting plenty of tarpon on the beach and around the bridges.
