Trip Summary

We had a devastating red tide bloom farther up in the bay than usual where literally tons of fish died. After a few weeks, the rain water washed the red tide out and baitfish made their way back up into tampa bay. The food chain is real, meaning the baitfish are followed by everything that eats them. Tarpon, snapper, redfish, snook, trout, tripletail, sharks, are all in the chain. It should remain that way until we start getting cold fronts. The seasons have been early the past year so get it while its hot!
