April Fishing Captain Ryan Taylor captainryantaylor.com Fishing report April 1st -16th

April has been great, the weather has been beautiful a little windy most days but the snook, redfish, and trout have seemed to love it. The water temperature around Anna Maria island is in the mid 70’s. The bait has invaded Tampa bay gathering around every piece of structure and every grass flat surrounding Anna Maria Island. Spring fishing is one of my favorite times of the year.

My clients always ask what are we fishing for here?  My response, is we’re probably going to catch it all snook, redfish, trout, because they all hangout together this time of year. It’s always exciting never knowing what your going to have on the line.

With the comfortable water temperatures these fish are eating all day. On most half day trips this week clients were catching 20 to 30 snook with the biggest being 36″. We catch about 5 to 10 redfish and 10 to 20 trout. If you are looking for an excellent table fare the trout are 15″ to 20″.

Tarpon fishing is right around the corner I generally start fishing for them every morning in May June, and July.  If you are  looking for a place to stay on Anna Maria Island check out Island Real Estate.
