Florida’s Gulf Coast Fishing Report – July 12 through July 19th
Nasty weather seems to have slowed the reports this past week, rain seems to be hitting us from all directions lately but there’s still some good fish being caught inside Tampa Bay.
Small tarpon and big black drum are chewing all along the Gandy Bridge.
Some big uglies are going up around 50-lbs and being caught on crabs or dead baits on the bottom. A blue crab cut in half will definitely get their attention. Big snook have invaded the passes with the evening hours producing best.
Try a big swim bait or lipped plug. Offshore is still great, especially during the week days when the fishing pressure is lighter. Look for some mahi and tuna around for some bonus meat in the cooler.
