Redfish Fishing in Tampa FL

Redfish Fishing in Tampa FL

Redfish are present in the Tampa Bay throughout the year, with peak populations following the annual arrival of schools of mullet in early March and additionally resurging again in September to spawn.

Reds in the Bay may be considered juveniles, as they hide out in these shallow waters until maturity, when they venture offshore. However, they are still great game to go after and will put up a fight. They can be caught in the same places as snook, trout and other flats fish.
