Tampa Fishing Report

Hello Anglers,

The weather is starting to warm up and so is the bite. We are starting to see things get back to normal after "Global Chilling 2010". March was much better than February and I know that April will be much better than March. We were able to catch our normal targets in March but not in the normal numbers. What March did give us was our yearly Black Drum bonanza. You gotta love 50lb. fish on light tackle. Whitebait is starting to show back up and that is going to change everything. We are just now starting to see fish where we usually do earlier in the year and I think that is due to the bait. April should be the start of the Spanish Mackerel season and we should also start to see the Tarpon show up this month. They were a little hurt by the cold, like the Snook, and time will tell on on their condition. I feel like a bear that's coming out of hibernation. April is finally here and it's my favorite time of the year. Until next time, good luck and be safe on the water. Remember: don't let your kid be the one that got away, take them fishing.

Other news: Some of you have requested "Reel Simple Fishing Adventure" t-shirts and hats. Well I have them on order and they will be available by the end of the month. There are 4 colors of t-shirts to choose from and are 100% cotton (white, tan, light blue, and light green) and one color hat (tan w/ blue logo). Shirts and hats are $12 each. Any 2 for $22 or 2 shirts and a hat for $30. All of this includes the shipping cost. Just let me know what size and color you want via email. In the future I will have sweatshirts and rain gear available.
