Late Summer Early Fall Fishing
Report Date: August 30, 2017
Here's what you can expect to catch in the Gulf of Mexico for the next few months, if you go fishing offshore. From 5-15 miles out gray snapper, porgy, Spanish mackerel, shark, barracuda and some red and gag grouper. But remember, a lot of the groupers will be under size unless you venture off further offshore where the bigger groupers hang out in the summer.
20-40 miles out, the fishing picks up, and there's a lot better chance of hooking keeper sized groupers, mangrove snapper, nice lane snappers, and if you're really lucky, blackfin tuna or a few mahi-mahi.
On the wrecks, you will find amberjacks, bonita, sharks, cobia and goliath grouper. The good thing about fishing the St. Pete Beach area is that the fishing is always good - as long as you do the right trip, during the right time of the year. Remember this, "The hotter it gets, the Further you have to go offshore." Fishing past 40 miles is great year around!!
