Had a chance to do some shore fishing at Macdill AFB. There are several places for wading that range from the bay to mangroves. I took the opportunity of not having kids with me to do some exploring. Fishing DOA shad tail in Fiji chicken I landed this snook about a mile inland off on of the canals on the golf course. I had to take him out of the water to get my lure back and released him unharmed. I also saw a school of reds that I spooked and would keep returning to the same spot but wouldn't bite anything plastic. I should have tried a spoon but it was in the car. I bought a set of waders for some other spots on base that another angler gave. Can't wait to go back.

Be sure to check with the marina on what 's allowed to be fished.  Last I heard about 60-80% of what was fishable is now off limits.  No reason to tempt our nations finest - they are very professional, but take their job very serious.

There's a creek behind the firing range that for obvious reasons should be avoided.  You'll know when it's hot.

With the exception of the rays there's not much of an issue wading; come spring through early fall use about a 15' stringer.  I know several anglers who've had sharks take their fish.  Have a knife or have it loosely attached.   While wading I've had two close encounters (within 2-3') after catching fish - one got my trout.  Funny how a big shark can hide in 3' of water.  Obviously they want the fish, but I always told my buddies I didn't want to be the first one labeled as "mistaken identify".

I fIshed the mouth of that creek this morning and picked up 5 trout. Had a bunch of other hits but they wouldn't commit.
