Snook, reds , and trout are all chewing well

on Tampa flats despite high water temps.

Manatee County is producing good fish. We have

been hooking quality snook, reds , and trout on

the grass flats in one to four feet of water. Try

deadsticking chunks of ladyfish or strips of

pinfish for big snook. The snook have been

ranging from 20" to over 30".

Redfish caught in same potholes as snook.

Bait of choice would be live sardines or cut

pinfish. Redfish ranging from 20" to over slot.

The trout haven't been huge but we have been

managing to catch a few in the 20" range. Trout

are hitting popping cork with live sardine or

D.O.A. shrimp. These fish are caught in the

grass and on the edge of potholes.

Expect all species to feed more aggresively

as temperatures cool and fish complete

transitions to fall time haunts.

Till next time have a safe and quality

day on the water. "Fishing like a pro" with
