What’s biting?!!? Inshore daytime fishing is consistent on mangrove snapper, sheepshead, and inshore grouper with the occasional redfish. Most of the daytime fishing is best around heavy structure with live and dead bait.
We’ve been doing some night fishing in Tampa, FL for snook, black drum, mangrove snapper, and other species. Giant ladyfish are abundant and are an absolute blast on light tackle. There are so many that someone with zero experience in fishing could cast a jig and catch one every minute. If you’re not afraid to put on a warm jacket, and perhaps some ear warmers, night fishing has been on fire.
Here’s a few photos of black drum we caught these past few days while scouting wintertime honeyholes. As fishing guides, when we go fishing outside of charters, we generally do it as frugal as possible… on little aluminum boats.
These fish weigh around 10lbs and put up a great fight on light tackle rods. The big black drum (30lbs+) will be in by next month. We’ve been getting some hard fighting snook at night as well, and mangrove snapper have been ferocious and abundant around the full moon. Here’s Kenny from Gulfport, FL with a nice black drum he caught on light tackle that night.
Beginning January 7th, the bulk of my availability will be limited to Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Keep this in mind if you’ve been planning to hire me in the near future. Capt. Jesse Nofi | 727.253.9913 www.360FishingCharters.com
