April 17th-28th Snook fishing the last few weeks has been awesome around Anna Maria Island and every barrier island around Tampa bay.
Most Snook have been the average 20-26 inches, but it wasn’t uncommon over the last couple weeks of April to land a Snook in the slot of 28″ to 33″. With a lot of Snook showing up around Anna Maria Island we landed a few over sized. The largest being 36″. its only going to better in the months to come.
Our tides were getting really high this past week due to a south wind and a new moon we had the opportunity to fish oyster bars around Anna Maria Island where the Redfish bite was on fire. My clients had many double and triple hook ups. Most of the Redfish we caught ranged from 20″-33″.
Trout fishing remained a staple for all clients to take back to their Anna Maria Island vacation rental to fry up. After a full day of fishing with the best (Capt. Ryan Taylor) it doesn’t take my clients long to catch their limit of trout 4 per person 15″-20″.
What to expect in the weeks to come. the Tarpon are showing up around Anna Maria Island and Tampa Bay. Expect to see pictures on social media of Tarpon as well as Snook, redfish, and trout that will remain good. Don’t forget if your coming to Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, Longboat key, TampaBay, or Sarasota book your fishing trips early so you don’t miss out on a trip of a life time.
