Fishing in Ruskin
If you ever thought most Tampa Bay fisheries are getting a bit too crowded and noisy for your angling palate, you've already daydreamed about fishing in Ruskin. Utilizing many of the same waterways as Florida heavyweights like Tampa and St Petersburg, Ruskin is the serene fisherfolk's alternative to the Bay's sportfishing madness, while sacrificing nothing in terms of quality. Schooling Redfish dominate the grassy flats and estuaries mouths, with a year-round supply of Snook and Sea Trout enticing anglers to go after the coveted Inshore Slam (catching all 3 of these in the same day). May marks the arrival of the Silver King, as fishing for Tarpon and Cobia heats up under the area's beaches, bridges, towers and various passes. Tampa Bay is also considered by many as the Shark capital of the world, with a wide range of species such as Blacktips, Sandbars, Nurse and Hammerheads regularly landed on light tackle. Bottom huggers including Snapper, Gag, Red and Black Grouper abound both inshore and offshore, especially during the cooler 'off-season' months. And for those fishing for the ultimate adrenalin rush, the wrecks and artificial reefs of the Gulf are teeming with game life and prized catches, particularly the popular Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, Permit, Cobia, Sea Bass and many more!
