If you’re looking for an angling spot on Tampa Bay that isn’t too crowded, you should definitely go fishing in Ruskin, FL. This little town is the serene fisherfolk's alternative to the Bay's sportfishing madness, that still boasts all the favorite species.
Inshore fishing is one of the most fun things to do in Ruskin. Schooling Redfish dominate the grassy flats and estuaries, with a year-round supply of Snook and Spotted Seatrout. Come spring, target impressive-sized Tarpon and Cobia on the area’s beaches and bridges. Cast your line on the Little Manatee River, and you can expect Redfish, Seatrout, and Catfish on the line.
Anglers who would like to explore the bay’s nearshore waters can go after a variety of Snapper and Grouper species – both are superb catches and table fare. Looking for the ultimate adrenaline rush? The ever-productive waters of the Gulf of Mexico are at your disposal with King Mackerel, Black Seabass, Permit, Pompano, and many more in the cards.
Because inshore fishing is a big deal in Ruskin, inshore aficionados, as well as anglers with families looking to avoid crowds are going to love it here. Local guides offer a wide array of trips, suitable for all ages and fishing levels. If you’re looking to throw some excitement into the mix, then you can explore the nearshore realm of the bay. 
Fishing in Ruskin, FL combines the peace and quiet of a small town with reel-screaming action and excellent catches. If you’re looking for a new perspective on Tampa Bay’s fishery, this is the place to go!

Fishing with Jarrod
John W. fished with Aquatic Escapes – Ruskin on July 17, 2020
All aspects of the trip were excellent. I suggest that any July trip be in the morning only, since afternoon rains are probable. Captain Jarrod was pleasant, knowledgeable, and put ous onto fish for the entire trip. J. W. Wilde
