Fishing cockroach bay

Recommended Posts

Fish there regularly great spot for reds and sheepshead. There are a couple of bait shops on highway 41 Ruskin Bait & Tackle also Apollo Beach Bait & Tackle both are good. There are a lot of places in the mangroves that hold fish also there is usually a trout bite on the flats to the north.

Good Luck

I will launch from the north side of Simmons Park (Panther Point) and head north to Apollo Beach there are some troughs and potholes that hold trout, reds and occasionally small sharks. I usually do not go all the way up to Apollo Beach. 2 years ago there was a good flounder bite around the park which has plenty of spots to park and launch from. The park does charge 2 bucks for entry into the park. With the water temps dropping I will be moving up into the Little Manatee river for a couple of weeks.
