As October comes to end, we look forward to the November fishing outlook in Tampa Bay – inshore slam included.
Fishing Tampa Bay In November
The beginning of November will be a seamless transition from October. Later in the month, we may start seeing migrations of your favorite inshore species up into the backwaters of Tampa Bay as things cool off.
And, much like October, the weather is awesome for enjoying your days on the water. Cooler temps, lower humidity, and reduced rain days are all a part of what makes Fall so awesome in Tampa Bay.
November’s Top Species
The main targets for November, along the inshore fishery inside of Tampa Bay, will include your inshore slam species: snook, redfish, and seatrout. You might have a slim shot at a resident tarpon as well, but I wouldn’t count on that as part of your day’s plans.
At the same time, some other opportunities arise as well. Inshore grouper fishing can get really good in November, alongside snapper. Flounder and Spanish Mack’s are possibilities, even Pompano.
Heading into nearshore waters, there will be an increased chance of going after kingfish as well – and sometimes, right inside the bay.
In the end, snook, redfish, and seatrout will be the primary contenders. This time of year can provide some of the biggest versions of these species in the area. We’re talking big snook, bull reds, and bull trout – mixed with our normal slot size populations.
