Cannot forget Pinellas county dumping thousands of gallons of raw sewage into the bay and the more recent Apollo beach sewage leak.The first start is to not dump millions of gallons of phosphates into Tampa Bay (Piney Point). The tarpon fishery was looking really good in Egmont and the Skyway. Went out after the storm and the increase of red tide was evident in the bay and no tarpon to be found. Had a good crab flush and tide and didn’t hook upon on any fish no bites on anything. This is going to be a rough summer / fall for our area. It’s very disappointing to see this, our fishery was looking good after 2018 and it will be devastated again.
That’s good to hear, thank you for the update.Fish are starting to come back now in the St.Pete area, was at Fort DeSoto yesterday and saw lots of Snook and Redfish, as well as a TON of Sheepshead around the mangroves. Couple of days before that I was in Boca Ciega Bay (Veteran's Park) and saw more Snook and a bunch of Sheepshead. Just about three weeks ago there was NOTHING, no fish at all besides baitfish swimming around so it's a good sign I think this area is in the clear as long as red tide doesn't drift back at us
Saw them this week and IP. Heard from other guys fishing it’s in St. Joe Bay tooRedtide from SGI to Indian pass. Fish kills starting.
