    Default sea trout near tampa

    So I am near tampa on vacation, with no fly rod...However!! i do have a spinning rod thats Ive stached here at my parents house. Ive fished off the bank for 3 mornings now with little jigs and absolutely killed the sea trout! Ive been fishing from sunup (around 7) until 9:15 in the morning and have yet to catch under 30 in those 2 hours. Alot of them are shorts, however Ive been taking home a limit every day of fish between 17-20 inches. I had no idea sea trout were so good to eat! Its been cold down here, but if you get the chance to fish its totaly worth it

    Pictures for us inland folk would be greatly appreciated! Glad your killing it down there. You will have to put a flyrod in your parents house incase you find yourself in another "situation" again.

    Seatrout on the grill is hard to beat. You can wear em out on a DOA usually to which is a fun rig to fish just make a lot of noise and hold on.
    If it swims throw a fly at it!

    Get to C/Water once in a while, and wonder just where you fishing? Have been to a state park on the Gulf, and is user friendly for flyfishing, but nothing like you described. Skip W.
