Captain Steven was thrilled to participate in the Hooked on Education fishing tournament Friday. Fishing for snook redfish and trout on the flats of Tampa Bay while raising funds for a great cause doesn’t get any better.

We splashed the Pathfinder Bay boat at O’Neill’s Marina and quickly made our way in the dark to a grass flat adjacent to the Skyway Bridge. Scaled sardines could be heard dimpling the surface even before we could see them. Chumming took only moments to get perfect 3-4” white baits concentrated of the bow ready for me to toss the cast net. 4 tosses and the live well was full.

I made the run north to the Westshore Yacht club to pick up my anglers. The tournament is a Grand Slam event total inches for a snook redfish and trout. You must catch all 3 species to qualify.

My 3 anglers were awesome; I have never had a group of anglers who make perfect casts over and over again. The bite overall was tuff to fair as report by almost all Captains. Our first stop we took 2 chunky trout to 18” and a very nice Spanish mackerel.

Our next stop we were tight to the mangroves with 5 other guide boats, one snook was all the group could muster in an hour.

Moving deeper into Weedon Island we took a chunky snook and a small redfish. Then a couple nice trout which capped off our Grand Slam. Sorry no images as my camera decided to stop working!

It’s never too late to help Hillsborough Education Foundation
