Summer Fishing in Tampa

The weekend was too short, and involved WAY too little fishing. My friend Jim was here from Orlando with his wife and kid. We spent a couple of hours on Merry Pier. The tides were sluggish (we’re between moon phases), but we still managed a few decent fish. We used live shrimp to catch a dozen or so Tampa Bay snapper, including two of around a foot, and I nailed a 30″ snook that was hanging out under the dock. But the catch of the day came from Jim’s daughter, Jordan- a nice, healthy grouper, only the second fish she’s ever caught (the first being a miniscule snapper a few minutes before). Way to go!
