Redfish Fishing in Tampa

Redfish are present in the Tampa Bay throughout the year, with peak populations following the annual arrival of schools of mullet in early March and additionally resurging again in September to spawn.

Reds in the Bay may be considered juveniles, as they hide out in these shallow waters until maturity, when they venture offshore. However, they are still great game to go after and will put up a fight. They can be caught in the same places as snook, trout and other flats fish.

Captain Sean with Southern Outdoor Sportsmen can show you the best Redfish spots.

"3/4 day with captain Bucky "

Timothy Aeilts fished with Bag’em Fishing Charters on February 20, 2019

Had a great day fishing the flats with captain Bucky. Caught Redfish and Snook on a beautiful Florida day. Captain Bucky was a great fisherman and a great all around guy. Good fishing and good conversation made the highlight of my vacation. I highly recommend Bag em fishing Charters and Captain Bucky.

"Bday fishing with Capt. Thomas Dominguez"

fished with Take A Day Off Fishing Charters on February 28, 2018

We went out with Captain Thomas last week and I had an amazing time. Caught my biggest redfish yet at 36"! Capt. Dominguez was very knowledgeable and courteous. My next fishing trip will definitely be with him.

"Killed it!"

Charles Mason fished with Tampa Bay Flats Fishing on February 2, 2017

I've done several trips with Capt Eric in the past year and each one has been awesome! I've done personal charters with him and business charters taking out clients. He's a very experienced and knowledgeable captain, and one of the best I've ever been out with! We crushed the snook, trout and monster redfish every single time we've been out! Highly recommended
