Crappy am tide Tampa Bay fishing report


Just a real quick fishing report. The tide this morning really sucks but I really wanted to get out. Despite the terrible tides, I had time to replace the trolling motor battery on the boat this weekend so I was anxious to take it out to do some fishing.

Weather was great and we threw the top water all morning with no luck at all. After 2 hours of casting and zero action I was bored and was ready to head in. There was one more stretch of flats I wanted to work on the way out. To change things up some I switched up to the reliable Sebile stick shad. This did the trick for us today. In 6 cast I caught a redfish, a trout then a snook to get the Tampa Bay slam for the day.

The bite died again and I packed it in. I tell ya, these boats, even if you let them sit, there is always something going wrong with them. Glad I got boat out there again. Spring is here and I need to do more fishing..!

Kent from Breathe Like a fish came over and showed me an new color. He wanted a couple snap shot, but unfortunately for him all he caught was a lizard fish. 😉
