Daily fishing report
By CHUCK ROGERS
Published March 15, 2006
The past three days have been some of the best fishing days we have seen all year. Water temperatures have reached a point where it's unlikely they will drop below 70 degrees until next winter. The snook sense this and have started to move into the shallows to feed.
Large schools of smaller male snook are showing up around the edges of the mangrove-lined flats in the central and northern regions of the bay. There are also good numbers of big females feeding in the same areas. Live sardines are plentiful now and are usually a sure thing for hungry spring snook.
On the east side of the bay, large redfish up to 30 inches have been seen but the bite is a little slow.
This weekend at the Tampa Bayside Marina the fourth annual flats fishing tournament benefiting the Tampa Marine Institute is being held. The captain's party is Thursday, and the fishing is Saturday . For more information, call Peggy Hoffrogg or Sharon Robertson at the Tampa Marine Institute, (813) 248-5091.
