Tampa Bay Fishing Forecast: Cold Front Fishing

Well, we are into one of my favorite times to fish the South Shore! Water temps have been hovering around the 70° mark, and when the water cools down, the algae dies and the water clears up nicely.

Cooling temperatures send fish into nearby rivers and residential canals. Schools of Snook, Redfish, Spotted Sea Trout and Jacks have been making up the lion share of inshore action.

High skies and warm afternoons offer up a chance for Cobia, sharks and Pompano, as well as a visual experience for Spotted Eagle Rays, Manatees and even some large Bull Sharks.

This is one of our typical early winter patterns and should remain consistent between the rest of December and January cold fronts! Book before December 31st, 2019 and get a Half Day Charter for up to 4 people for just $400!

OK! Tight lines, everybody! Catch you next time!
