Anna Maria island fishing charter with captain Ryan Taylor. Welcome to fall fishing and we are starting to feel it in the air. The past two weeks we have seen a persistence 10-15 knot north-east or east wind which has made fishing a challenge at times. The wind has made it especially tough going to get bait in the mornings. Most days from the time I pull out of my marina I’m faced a 2-3 tight chop of waves until I get on the golf side of Anna Maria island where the bait has been. Which in nice because the wind we have had has made it flat clam in the beach. Perfect for a Anna Maria island fishing charter with captain Ryan Taylor.
Taking all that into account fishing had been very productive and some days have been epic! Fishing off the beaches of Anna Maria island the mackerel and king mackerel bite has been good. The best bite has been from 1 to 3 miles out. Just look for the birds.
Moving to inshore Snook bite has been awesome towards the end and beginning of the tide cycle. A large number of Snook have started their winter migration towards the back bays and rivers. Which has been great for as hard as the wind has been blowing. The back bays are protected from the wind.
Redfish bite has been hit or miss. Some day it’s every cast other days we only catch 4 or 5 in a trip. Like I said in my last report we have been catching Snook redfish and trout all in the same spots. So most days we catch more redfish then Snook then the next day may be the opposite.
We have also been catching some really nice flounder and trout mixed in almost everyday.
