Catching fish on artificial’s with fishing charters Tampa:

Waters temps are down and the days are cooler. Which makes for a great time to catch fish with Fishing Charters Tampa on artificial’s. Redfish schools are popping up all over the bay and the snook and trout bite is stellar. I have been catching redfish in the creeks mouths, rivers, and on the flats in the pot holes on a low and outgoing tide. On a high tide fishing up tight to the mangroves, working area’s highly concentrated with mullet. A gold spoon, or D.O.A shad tail on a 1/8 ounce D.O.A jig head has been the got to bait.

Snook Fishing Charters Tampa:

The snook bite has been early morning or late afternoon and typically slows down in the middle of the day. Best on a high and outgoing tide. The action has been up tight and under the mangroves or on a low and incoming tide in the creeks fishing the deep trough’s and oyster bars. As we get later into the winter you will see more of these fish moving to the creeks and rivers in search of warmer water.

Trout Fishing Charters Tampa:

Trout have been around the creek mouths, on the flats in deep holes, on the edges of the flats. The middle or the end of the tide has been key. A D.O.A shad tail, mirro-lure lil jon, or D.O.A jerk bait, has been the bait of choice. Making long casts, letting them sink all the way to the bottom and jigging it all the way back to the boat. Big north winds, cold fronts, less bait on the flats and frequent negative low tide’s through out the winter makes it prime time to have a good trip fishing with artificial baits. Are you looking to try something different? Put your skills to the test trying to fool a fish into eating an artificial! Now is the time to go!

To see my most used artificial bait go to D.O.A lures website .
