Snook Fishing in Tampa

Snook
  • Size 3 to 15lbs
  • Food Value Good
  • Game Qualities Excellent
  • Habitats Inshore, Flats, Backcountry

(Centropomus undecimalis / nigrescens)

When you’re in the mood for superb action on the water, the Snook fishing Tampa has to show you will keep you busy on the rod. Head out to Hillsborough Bay and surrounding hotspots in the late spring and summer to target monster Snook and land your next personal record.
 
As the spawning season begins, Snook sneak up closer to the beaches and mangrove shorelines. Whether it’s light tackle or fly fishing, Snook come in such big numbers that you can hook up to 50 on an outing, and even triple-digit hookups happen if the conditions align! During the high season, you can land 30’’ lunkers that weigh anywhere from 5–30 pounds
 
One of the best times to catch huge Snook is at night, where the biggest feeders congregate near the dock lights inshore. Several captains offer specialized night Snook trips specifically so that you can experience this unique fishery.
 
Snook fishing in Tampa is popular because these strong fish are renowned for being outstanding fighters that will make you work for every inch of the line. There are captains in Tampa who specialize in Snook hunts, and if you hit the water with them, you only need to worry about bringing snacks and drinks for the day. On guided charters, the captain will provide the fishing license, as well as all the gear you need, unless you’d like to bring your own equipment.
 
Remember that Snook is a strictly catch-and-release fish throughout most of the year, except when it’s their high season, from September 1 to December 15. During that time, you can keep one Snook per day, as long as you’ve got a valid Florida saltwater fishing license and a Snook stamp. Also, your catch must be between 28–32’’ long to be a keeper.

Take sun cream and a hat as the sun can still burn. No head on board so use the bathroom before hand. Listen to the skipper as her knows what he’s doing.
