Redfish Fishing in Tampa

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.

Had a great day fishing the flats with captain Bucky. Caught Redfish and Snook on a beautiful Florida day. Captain Bucky was a great fisherman and a great all around guy. Good fishing and good conversation made the highlight of my vacation. I highly recommend Bag em fishing Charters and Captain Bucky.
