Had a busy second week fishing both the bay and Clearwater harbor area. Fishing was good with Redfish, Trout, Snook and Triple tail being caught. Early in the week I fished out of Safety harbor and we fished for snook and trout. Did good on both, middle of the week I fished for triple tail out of Dunedin Marina, and we started the day by running south along the stone crab traps looking for Triple tail. We ran down from Clearwater beach to sandy key, and made our way down to Johns pass and St.pete beach where we caught a 6 triple tail with 2 shorts, 2 just legal, and 2 jumbos. I finished off the week fishing back over in Dunedin Clearwater area catch trout and a few redfish.
On the Space Coast, black drum have been caught in both the Haulover Canal and the northern end of the Banana River. Fresh cut mullet, ladyfish, and live shrimp on a jig head are getting the best bite. Anglers will want to cast the bait in front of the fish or rest the bait on the bottom along channel drop-offs. These black drum have been averaging 15 inches with the largest fish measuring 23 inches, reports Capt. Keith Mixon of Mixin’ Work With Play Fishing Charters. (321-212-8484).
Offshore fishing charters typically depart from St Petersburg and Clearwater. These trips offer a unique opportunity to leave the coastline behind and explore the notorious Gulf of Mexico. Game fish aplenty in the waters of the Gulf, with its countless wrecks, reefs, ledges, hard bottoms and copious weed lines.

Of course, the main difference between the two is the depth of the water at the fishing location. In ocean or seawaters, inshore fishing is within a few miles from the shore. Estuaries and bays are popular inshore fishing spots as well. Offshore fishing is far from the shore, typically 20-30 miles out, in waters hundreds and thousands of feet deep.

I caught some of the biggest pompano I’ve ever seen with St. Petersburg skipper Capt. Paul Hawkins. Targeting one of the smaller bridges on the Sunshine Skyway’s approach section, Hawkins worked the upcurrent side during an incoming tide and switched to the downcurrent side when we returned later in the day to fish the outgoing water.
The Bay Pier, which runs 500 feet out in more protected water, is the perfect choice for fishermen with lighter tackle or those more concerned with bringing dinner home. Nearshore species like snook, redfish, trout, pompano and Spanish mackerel abound in these calmer waters.
