Red Tide

I was planning on doing alittle fishing around Sarasota/Tampa and found the area has been suffering through a massive Red Tide since January of this year. So much for fishing the coast, inland water ways for snook is probably OK. It's one of the worst cases in a long time. I found an informative write up on it for you to read if interested here..

I read that it's intensifying in the panhandle and extending into Alabama now. You can look at the current RED TIDE forcast and fish kill status for Florida here...

If your planning on fishing the area, you might do well to look at the other coast or at the very least an area that is not presently effected by the Red tide.

Tight Lines,
Greg.
