Upper Tampa Bay December 2010

By Captain Derick Burgos of Phatfish Kayak Charters

I just spent the last 6 days fishing in the beautiful waters of Upper Tampa Bay experiencing nothing less than success. Places like Rocky Creek, Chanel A, Double Branch and Safety Harbour are holding high numbers of fish.

Redfish from rats,( generally redfish under 18″) to upper slots can be found munching on crustaceans and the like near mangrove shorelines and oyster bars near deep drop-offs. They will stage just outside the eddys or facing the tide on either side of oyster bars depending on the direction of flow. There they will await easy prey.
