Fishing during May around Anna Maria Island is a great time to catch a variety of species on the inshore waters of Tampa Bay.

Snook ,Trout ,and Redfish will be feeding ferociously on live bait . Look for the Snook and Redfish to be up in the Mangroves on the higher tides and the Speckled Trout to be in sea grass areas with 2-6ft of water.

Spanish Mackerel are in Tampa Bay. Sharks  have made a push into Tampa Bay with many Blacktips, Spinners, Bull ,and Lemon Sharks cruising the deep edges of the ship channel and  off the beaches.

Tarpon will make a show this month off the beaches and in the passes. To catch Tarpon  off the beach, it is imperative to have a stealthy quite approach to the fish. A live crab , pinfish,shiner, threadfin, or jumbo shrimp  will stir the  the hunger pains in these majestic fish.

May is one of my favorite months to fish the Anna Maria Island areas as the weather is moderate and  sunny  with clam winds and smooth seas.

Fishing (and Temperatures) Heating Up

John Touchton lands an Amberjack

John Touchton lands an Amberjack

By Nick Walter Islander Reporter

White bait is creeping back into the area, and it could mean the transition from cut bait to live bait for fishers.

Small pinfish already are invading bays from offshore where there are reports of clouds of pinfish. Already there are glass minnows in the bays, so it shouldn’t be long before they’re followed by shiners.

With the bait will come more Spanish and king mackerel, as well as bluefish. There are reports of kingfish being caught from both Sunshine Skyway Bridge fishing piers and some anglers are reporting they’ve been spooled by king smokers.

Calm, warm weather also was timely for grouper fishermen, who took advantage of the opening of grouper season on April 1. Quality catches of grouper can be had in 60 feet of water, and the fish tend to favor live bait. April 1 also saw the open harvest of tarpon and bonefish.
