tampa bay fishing charters fishing report for tampa bay and ruskin fl, the mangrove snapper bite has been red hot right! now they are in the rocky areas of tampa bay they like small scaled sardines and shrimp the best. the bite has been great on my charters we have been catching snook on the outgoing tide! they are pinned to the magroves right now! we also have been catching spanish mackerel on the deep grass flats in south tampa bay area also we have been catching blaktip sharks in deep grass flats with some bluefish mixed in also some large trout have also been caught. the best bait right now is scaled sardines which this time of year have been smaller but the fish dont mind the size of the bait. the best time to fish has been early in morning before it gets real hot. Update to this fishing report large spanish mackerel have moved in to the bay and are hungry! now is the time to book your charter!
