—–Fishing this past week out of Island Discount Tackle at Keyes Marina on Anna Maria Island has been steady with some red hot action mixed in. Speckled trout, redfish and snook have been feeding when the current has been moving .
—–Speckled trout have been the go-to fish for some fillets for the dinner table and exciting action on the flats of Tampa Bay . Many gator trout were landed this past week on my recent charters. A lively shiner rigged on a 1/0 hook with a piece of 30 lb fluorocarbon leader under a popping cork has drawn many of these snaggle toothed predators to the dinner table. Make the old school bobbers pop and gurgle and the bait flash to draw the strikes. Continue Reading…

—–April 2—– I fished around Anna Maria with Bob Salmon joined by his two sons, Hunter and Keegan, and Bob’s friend Dan Barker. We started out fishing some near shore structure with good results. Using live shiners for bait we managed to boat 4 cobia and a 22 inch flounder. Then we switched to using live shrimp on a knocker rig which resulted in numerous keeper mangrove snapper as well as some sheepshead in the 3 to 4 lb range. To finish out the day we rallied on spanish mackerel and a few black tip sharks. Not bad for a bunch of guys from Michigan. Continue Reading…

—–Well, it’s Friday and our judging crew has determined that this week’s CANAL MONSTER SNATCH award will recognize the ongoing and often futile attempts of Johnny Mattay to tame the beasts in our favorite canal!
—–Johnny has completed many a canal slam, bringing a single-day combination of catfish, pinfish, toadfish and gut-snagged mullet to his delighted family’s table after his shift behind the counter at Island Discount Tackle.
—–Lately, he’s been working his fishing wizardry on the elusive canal snook and you can see the results for yourselves! We will certainly be honoring this fine young man and his occasionally victorious canal campaigns with a delicious beer (or two) out by the shrimp tank this evening and we may have a spare cold one if you’re in the neighborhood!!

—–Last week, the Greenough family took our sightseeing boat tour around Anna Maria Island and Jewfish Key. We saw a bunch of dolphins and manatees and went snorkeling on my secret sandbar. It was the girls’ first time snorkeling. As we snorkeled over the grassflats, they found sand dollars, coral and shells. They had an awesome time. We also had a good time watching lots of dolphins in Palma Sola Bay.
