Chasten Whitfield here for your BD Florida Fishing Report for the first half of October in the Tampa Bay & Sarasota Bay area.
Inshore – the redfish fishing has been absolutely insane! Big schools of reds have been everywhere – grass flats, mangroves, deep holes. The trout and snook have been great as well – fish the tides! PRO TIP: give the Berkley Gulp! 3″ shrimp a shot.
Offshore – There has been some big cobia and kings roaming around. Also, still some decent grouper fishing as well as a few spots of mahi mahi. The tripletail have started showing up under buoys also.
Watch for Chasten’s full report and tips!
