The past weeks of fishing Anna Maria Island post Irma have been some of the best I have seen in a long time. Here around Anna Maria Island and Tampa bay area we saw 60-70mph winds and just a lot of rain. While we got slapped by the storm, Anna Maria Island and Tampa Bay are beautiful as ever going into Fall.
Fishing Anna Maria Island Post Irma
On October 1st the water temperature is around 85 degrees here. With all the fresh water we have had run into all our creeks and rivers it has really concentrated the Snook, Redfish, and Trout. It has been fall fishing at its finest. Bait is everywhere from the beaches of Anna Maria Island to almost every shore line in Tampa Bay. With a live well full of shiner/whitebait on most charters the last few weeks we will pull up. I will throw a bat of bait out and clients have been catching slot over slot Snook and redfish. Also some really nice trout all in the same spot one after another. It has been exciting to watch this because fishing Anna Maria Island is usually good but this has been phenomenal.
Where to fish?
I’m fishing around the mouths of the rivers and creeks of Tampa Bay, Sarasota Bay, and around the island. in the Fall I like to fish around the large schools of mullet in all of these areas in 2 to 4 foot of water. On the lower tides fish off of all the outside sandbars about 200 to 400 yards off the shore lines of Tampa Bay. That’s where you will find the big schools of Redfish in the Fall.
