What's Biting Now

Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay Action

Florida Sportsman: Matt822 With the arrival of spring water temps a little early, it appears the bite has woken up over the last three weeks with tons of snook on the flats and schools of redfish covering the mangrove lines. The last two weekends I was able to get them on top water baits early in the morning, then switched to green swimbaits or paddle tails.

Small Lake Bass

Within minutes we boated a fat 3-pound bass, and that was the start of a steady parade of fish. By the time an early afternoon thunderstorm ended our day, we had tallied over 20 bass. The best was pushing 7 pounds.
