Tampa Bay Fly Fishing Report


Mid December Report

Capt. Ken Tutalo

At this time there are a lot of options for Fly Fishermen around the Bay.

Over the last few weeks my clients have had a lot of opportunity and most days multiple species have come to net. Recently several of my clients completed the inshore slam of a Trout, Snook and Redfish on the fly!


All of my recent trips have been in the South Bay and this is the area my reports are relevant to. More specifically I spend most of my time from Apollo Beach to the Skyway.


Most days I budget my time on the water to allow my clients time to target Snook, Reds and Trout. Getting shots at these species had been reliable under the current conditions. We have also been encountering Jacks, Ladyfish, Flounder and Sheephead most days.
