A day of BIG Snook!
January 21, 2015 Tampa 4 photos
Had another great day on Tampa Bay today. Aboard were a few of my great repeat customers, and their friends. They wanted to see what all the Reel Therapy Fishing Charters hype was all about. Everyone found comfortable seating aboard the Ranger as we took a short boat ride to a productive trout flat. We started landing small trout and moving around the flat until we located some upper slot sized fish. We landed 5 upper slot trout before we decided to moved on to snook. We took a short boat ride to a creek mouth and set up at the edge of a deep hole. We had to reposition the Ranger a few times before we started absolutely crushing big snook! We landed over 40 snook, the biggest measuring over 30", 34", 36", and approximately 40"! We also got absolutely schooled by a huge snook we couldn't even slow down, after a 5 minute battle she finally broke us off in the mangrove trees. We then moved on to redfish, we landed a few smaller redfish before landing a perfect tournament sized fish measuring 26 3/4"! We also landed two more really nice snook before we decided to call it a day. More exceptional fishing in the middle of January on Tampa Bay!

Had a great trip today, the fish absolutely chewed the bottom out of the boat! We started the day of on deep water rocks targeting mangrove snapper and grouper. We went 2 for 6 with the biggest being fish being a 22" grouper. We made a quick short move to some deep water grass flat and caught over 20 trout, the biggest brig over 25". After we got our fill on big trout we decided to target redfish, unfortunately the winds had really picked up and made for tough sight fishing conditions. We did manage one over slot redfish measuring 29". We also landed about 10 more trout the biggest being the 23" fish pictured. We made one more move to try and compete our "slam" we landed right on the snook and immediately began catching. We lost at least 6 snook over 30". We landed another 10 in the 25" range. We eventually called it a day and left the fish chewing for the fourth time in one day!Continue reading
