January has started off with an El Niño year . With that the days have been very limited to Fish it’s been mostly windy and cold and wet. Haven’t got to fish as much as I’d like to but when we’ve been able to get out has been its sheepshead, grunts and snappers. A little cool to be fishing in Bradenton for the rest of the game fish but it was manageable but also nice to give them a break from catching them the rest of the year. The weather is slowly starting to shape up and the sun is shining as of now. Anticipating the warm up but not ready for summer. Ready to get the year started catching more fish here in the Bradenton & Anna Maria Island area.
Another great year of fishing in Bradenton has come and gone. All of this would not be possible if not for the wonderful people that have the love for fishing. I appreciate the business from the many years of guiding them and sharing the same fishing passion. Looking forward to all future fishing trips even the tough days that define us all who we are to keep pushing forward. So here’s to many more bent fishing rods!
The fall fishing in Bradenton has been great. The temperatures are starting to come down and I will start to fish more with shrimp concentrating on docks and rock piles around and near Anna Maria Island. Fishing with shrimp provides quick action. There is still Snook to catch in between the fronts going into wintertime.
The bite has been pretty good offshore in Bradenton. Mackerel Bonita, Cobia and King Fish have been the best bite off of Anna Maria Island. The slot Snook also have been biting ok. The Red Fish have been spotty, but I anticipate catching more as I move around in the Manatee River. As the water temperatures here in Bradenton starts to drop we will be be moving onto Sheepshead and Hogfish hoping the weather cooperates. So book your charter fishing trip in Bradenton and come get yer fill.
October is one of my all time favorites times of the year for fishing here in Bradenton and Anna Maria Island, FL. Weather is starting to cool down and the fish are biting! Book your fishing charter with Capt. Kris and Tailing Tales out of Bradenton, Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island FL today!
Gag grouper and redfish will be on the target list the next few months here in Anna Maria Island. Lots and lots of bait fish have showed up and the fish will be getting hungry. It’s also been a long hot summer with not a lot of rain too sure what to make of it but the push of the fresh water helps some fish spawn so hopefully more is to come. Also anticipating the cool down the fish that have migrated to the north will be coming back this way. King fish and Cobia will start to show up as well behind the bait schools.

Snook fishing has been good with spawn over the summer. However with the rains that are happening and coming the red fish will start to migrate for their spawn. Hoping for their migrations for great catching and larger fish to be caught in Anna maria and Bradenton/Sarasota area. Its also not only about the catch its about the quality time on the water with sites like Egmont Fort Desoto and all the sandbar hopping with back drop of the sunshine skyway. So book a trip while the weather starts to cool off.
