St Pete Beach Fishing Report, Windy Week of Fishing

by Capt. Kevin Walton on March 5, 2011

With the water temperatures nearing 70 degrees I thought it would be good to get out of the canals of St Pete Beach and start looking for bait fish and maybe fish for Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel out in the Gulf. 20 mph wind blowing most of the week kept us from doing that though. The best thing about running inshore fishing charters is that no matter how windy it is, there’s still somewhere to get out of the wind and catch some fish.

Even with water temperature rising pretty fast in the canals, they were still producing nice catches for my customers. Throwing artificial lures brought in some really nice Trout and we caught Redfish, Black Drum and Sheepshead on live shrimp.

With winds laying down a little bit at the end of the week, we hit the flats of lower Tampa Bay and got into some good Redfish and Trout action. We didn’t see any big schools of Redfish yet, but the reds are there and the fishing should be getting better and better.

As more and more baitfish start to move in, the fishing is only going to get better. Spring is here and if you want some of the best fishing action of the year give me a call, 727-638-0975
