Although fishing can be enjoyed any time of year, there is something special about fall fishing in Saint Petersburg. The weather is perfect, the fish are biting, and the scenery is beautiful.
Fall Fishing At Its Best
If you’re looking for some of the best fishing in the country, look no further than Florida. Our tropical climate and easy access to waterways make this state a paradise for anglers. The fish are especially plentiful in St. Pete and are known for their high quality. The ecology here is also excellent, with the winter tides creating more current and making for ideal fishing conditions; the action is heating up even as the weather cools down.
Fall Favorite Species
St. Petersburg is a mecca for anglers from all over the country. With endless sunny days, prolific fishing grounds, and hundreds of professional guides, St. Petersburg is the perfect place to drop a line. The productive flats, mangrove-lined shores, canals, and barrier islands are all brimming with inshore species that also happen to be favorite catches of the area. If you’re craving offshore action, the Gulf is at your disposal. So, what will it be? Snook? Redfish? Tarpon? Whatever your fancy, you’re sure to find it in St. Pete.
Redfish – In St. Pete Beach, Florida, fall fishing is most commonly associated with redfish. This is because the cooler water temperatures attract spawning female redfish to the area. These fish are often larger than the resident population, making them a coveted catch for fishermen. In addition, the increased number of redfish leads to increased competition for food, making them more active and easier to catch.
Snook – A voracious predator, snook are coming into their own this Fall. They’re healthy and hungry, so they’re putting up quite a fight when you hook them. Whether fishing in the mangroves or on the flats of St. Pete, you’re likely to find a snook or two more than willing to take your bait. And if you’re lucky enough to hook one, you can expect quite a fight.
Everything Else – Not only is there these two popular gamefish, but you’ll also find speckled trout, cobia, flounder, and more in Saint Petersburg as we move into the fall and even winter. This means your chances of landing an inshore slam are pretty good. So get out there and see what you can catch!
