FISHING REPORT: 5/18-5/24
Hello Gulfsters and hope the past week was epic! Some heavy rain and wind the past week but it hasn’t slowed the fishing down much. The tarpon are the headliners this week. The fish are being found in good numbers in the bays and along the beaches. Live bait is key, either crabs or threadfins. Look for the fish rolling on the surface or watch those fish finders around the bridges. The trout bite has also been on fire. All of the flats are loaded with fish. Offshore look for Cobia, snapper, and permit unless you want to make the long runs.

Congrats goes out to Tom Howard with this awesome snapper caught off he west coast this past week! Nice fish, Tom! You too could be featured on the site, just submit your photos to gulfsterreport@gmail.com.
What’s up Gulfsters! Welcome to May, the heat is beginning to start here locally even though we’ve had some lower than normal temperatures for our area the past month or two. The fish are definitely finding their summer homes now. The snook are on the beach and thick at the passes. I’d recommend going either really early before the beach crowds roll out of bed or in the evenings. Live bait, flys, or artificials are all working and producing good sized fish. In the Bay the trout are thick and the redfish are still available but spotty. I think the reds have hunkered down in the mangroves this year more so than previous years creating a false opinion that they’re hard to find. Offshore it’s really happening. There’s a run of spring tarpon finally beginning and the offshore wrecks are holding good numbers of permit, cobia, hogfish, and snapper species. Start in about 45-feet and work west. As always feel free to contact me with any questions via email wtallyn04@gmail.com or on Instagram @snookjam.

FISHING REPORT: 4/27-5/3
Hello Gulfsters and hope you’re enjoying this awesome weather we’re finally getting! The fishing has been hot. Many of the different species are showing up at the passes and on the beaches including pompano, snook, tarpon, and cobia. Get out early in the morning on a calm day and do some sight fishing before the beaches are packed. I like MirrOlure Lil Jon’s, DOA Shrimp, or SPRO bucktails. The tarpon are beginning to school up around Egmont Key and other areas. Live crabs or threadfin are always good bets. Offshore the kingfish are still chewing. Expect some company out there with the Old Salt’s King of the Beach tournament this weekend. Good luck out there and as always feel free to contact me with any questions via email at wtallyn04@gmail.com or on Instagram @snookjam. Captain Wes Tallyn

FISHING REPORT: 4/20 - 4/26
Hey Gulfsters and hope everyone is having a fabulous week. The wind has been pretty gnarly but it’s letting up a couple days a week allowing the water to slick out. The fish are everywhere right now in Tampa Bay. Getting some good reports on the south shore from good redfish bites and some epic trout bites. Some people reporting 100 fish days inside Tampa Bay. Also, there’s been a ton of snook being caught along the mangroves around the Skyway bridges. The tarpon are showing up in small numbers around the bay and beaches. May should be the time that the fishing really heats up. Offshore the kingfish bite continues to rock ‘n roll along. All of the public reefs are holding fish, keep your bait fresh and get a lot of it for lots of drag pulling fun! Keeping an eye on what could be a decently long red snapper season, more to come on that later but it looks like it will be extended.

FISHING REPORT: 4/13-4/12
Hey Gulfsters and thanks again for all of the questions, pictures, and reports! The weather has been a little crazy and the wind has definitely been tough to avoid but during the calm periods the fishing has been great. April is a fantastic month to get out if you have an opportunity. There’s some great nearshore and inshore fishing going on right now. The reports this week from the Skyway Fishing pier have been awesome! Lots of grouper, mackerel, and some very active kingfishing. The guys under the Skyway on the boats are hooking multiple tarpon per trip. I expect the tarpon to really start to show up on the beaches this week. Looking back in my fishing logs, I’d say everything is about 3 weeks behind “the norm” as far as the beach goes. If you are along the beaches, I did see some cobia along St. Petersburg Beach this week two years ago, so keep an eye out for those while searching for tarpon, snook, or kingfish. I usually will have a dark, soft bait, jig ready to go in case I see a cobia. As always feel free to contact me with any questions via email wtallyn04@gmail.com or on Instagram @snookjam.

Congrats to Victoria Nelson for catching this 32lb kingfish off of Anna Maria Island on a cigar minnow! You too could be featured on the site, just submit your photos to gulfsterreport@gmail.com.
Hello Gulfsters and I hope you had a fantastic week! The fish are continuing to move to the regular summer grounds and along the beaches. This week the snook made their appearance on the beach in some numbers. There’s still a lot of people traffic which is limiting the fishing opportunities but as we move away from the spring break crowds the fish should be more comfortable and feeding. The tarpon are starting to show in small numbers along the beach. This week would be a good time to fish the Skyway for them, anchoring up on an outgoing tide between the pilings. The fish usually move along the bridge shadow lines and along the side of the pilings ambushing baits. I saw a few very small pompano still along the beaches this week, try around Pass-a-Grille jetty or Buncess Pass. Offshore the kingfish are on fire and eating everything alive. The public reefs are a good place to start but anywhere where the bait is thick will attract the migrating fish. Thanks for all of the reports and fish pictures, keep them coming. As always feel free to contact me via email with any questions or follow along on Instagram @snookjam.

FISHING REPORT: 3/23- 3/29
Hello Gulfsters and hope you’ve had an epic week! The wind has churned up our local, inland waters once again but the fish remain chewing for those brave enough to venture out. The big trout and redfish are chewing on the flats on live greenbacks and soft baits on a jig head. The trout are loaded up on the deeper edge drop offs. Give some spots a little extra time as the trout work their areas of the flats. The pompano are still on the beaches and area bridges. Also, plenty of big sheepshead are still being caught throughout the Bay Area on any kind of structure. Offshore, the bite has been very strong on the days where the weather cooperates. Some early kingfish continue to arrive as well as some big grouper, hogfish, and grunt. As always if you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email wtallyn04@gmail.com or on Instagram @snookjam. –Captain Wes Tallyn

FISHING REPORT: 3/16 - 3/22
Hey Gulfsters! Hope everything is going well with you all out there. The wind and cold is just now starting to subside a bit. We got a bit of a tease that spring was here but winter pulled a small trick on us. Through all of this, there’s still been a steady bite of trout, redfish, and snook on the local grass beds and mangrove islands. Live greenbacks and white bait are readily available on the edges of the grass beds in the morning or also at the Skyway piers. This week would be a good time to start scouting early tarpon on the local bridges. Some fish are here year round but now they should begin their movement to the bridges in search of baitfish. Offshore there’s been a steady stream of Snapper reports and still some early kingfish showing up. If you venture offshore, take a variety of baits with you including live shrimp and dead baits. The best bite right now is still in the 50-75’ range or further offshore for the big mamas!

The current is now pushing inshore nicely, the water has warmed back to it’s norm, and the amount of Sailfish working the hordes of bait and life is just incredible at the moment. Our prediction is things are running a little late this season and we are going to see fantastic fishing over the next months right through May. We have some open days, so come on down for the Billfishing Adventure of a lifetime! #inshore #current #warmwater #sailfish #hordes #bait #oceanlife #guatemalanbillfishingadventures #thedecisive #captbradphilipps #fishingforecast #fishingprediction #prediction #fishreport #fantasticfishing #charter #angling

It was worth fishing in the cold rain with my buddy today. I caught the biggest fish and we got our photos on the #fishreport

FISHING REPORT: 3/9 - 3/15
Hey Gulfsters! Nasty fishing conditions due to the wind have stirred up a nice swell on both coasts this week and a bit of cooler weather. No doubt the fish should be as confused as we are with this sudden weather change. Snook already working their way out to the beaches are probably regretting their early season move and possibly retreating back into the bays. Speaking of snook, the bite is on fire on the flats and canals. Most fish are under slot but there’s been some real nice fish pushing 40” again this past week. Some gator trout are being caught all over the Bay Area flats as well. The water will probably be a little stirred up and may make for some less than ideal conditions for artificial baits. Now would be a good time to use or experiment with scented baits or bait gels. The bridges are holding sheepshead and black drum with the occasional redfish or pompano as a welcomed bycatch. Offshore was producing grouper, amberjack, and kingfish but it’s going to be awfully rough until mid or late next week.
