Fishing in Tampa

The Sunshine State has long been renowned for its inshore fishing potential, and you need not look much further than Tampa to understand why. These waters are brimming with the likes of Snook, Redfish and Tarpon during most of the year, with a wide range of smaller Shark species to keep you busy on even the slowest of days. In fact, there’s such a variety of species cruising the Tampa flats year-round, you’d be seriously hard-pressed to find a local fishing guide that recalls the last time he and his guests came back from the trip empty-handed. But don’t take our word for it!
