Anna Maria Island Fishing Report November
Inshore: The, snook, trout, and redfish bite was good all the way into December particularly the mangrove islands in Miguel Bay which was still loaded with fish. We caught them on a high outgoing tide using pilchards. Miguel Bay is pretty shallow so the best time to fish in there is high tide. Just around the corner off Emerson Point however, we were drifting over the grass flats, to catch trout on a popping corks with 3ft of 15lb fluorocarbon leader and a #2 circle hook through the nose of a pilchard. Those trout were usually hiding near the transition between the grass and sand in 6ft of water.
