You can focus on any one of a number of species on your trip. The Tampa Bay area is blessed with year-round populations of a variety of inshore favorites, from tasty Trout and Redfish to top gamefish like Tarpon and Snook, there are always plenty of options to choose from.
You will be spending the day aboard a 24’ Bluewave center console, freshly-built in 2019 and powered by a modern, 300 HP Suzuki engine. The vessel is perfect for getting into those hard-to-reach places where the best fish lurk. Her trolling motor will let you do just that, while modern electronics scan the shallows in search of the best place to place cast your bait.
