As the weather gets warmer, sometimes it’s just more fun to wade fish. Grab pair of sneakers and light fishing tackle, then cast into the channels that cut through lush seagrass beds. Be careful not to trample through seagrasses though – they’re critical habitat for almost nearly every fish in Tampa Bay.

• At Fort Pierce, “Snook season opened on the Atlantic coast Thursday and we’ve had one nice, slot 31-inch fish from the inlet already,” reports Clint Walker at the Fishing Center of St. Lucie (772-465-7637). Flounder are starting to bite from the south jetty on live shrimp and jigs tipped with shrimp. There’s lots of sheepshead and black drum being caught in the inlet. On the flats inside, trout are biting in two to four feet of water over grass and redfish are biting around deeper water in the mangroves. “I’ve heard nothing about offshore, it’s been too windy,” Walker says.

6: At Anna Maria, the kingfish bite near shore from three to seven miles is still really good. There’s not many Spanish mackerel, but there’s a good amount of little tunny mixed in with them. On the reefs, there’s mangrove snapper and few flounder. Inshore, there’s still a few snook in the passes, but most have made a big run for their winter spots such as the rivers and creeks. “Trout fishing is on fire. Big trout are with the schools of mullet with some scattered redfish as well. There’s also schools of bluefish four to six pounds all over Sarasota Bay,” reports Capt. Scott Moore of Bradenton (941-713-1921).

• Laws: Consult local or Coast Guard authorities for special navigation rules applicable to bridges in your area. The U.S. Coast Guard has relaxed its post 9-11 regulations limiting boat proximity to bridges. Currently, a 100-foot security zone applies to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge’s center span, its pilings, dolphins and rock abutments. All other rules of navigation still apply, but anglers are allowed to fish elsewhere along the Skyway and other area bridges. FS
