Inshore Fishing in Tampa Bay

If you still haven’t tested out the inshore fishing Tampa Bay is famous for, there’s no better time than now! With a productive year-round season, a wide variety of species to target, and excellent fishing conditions, the Tampa Bay fishery is legendary among knowledgeable anglers.
 
Whether you’re roaming the flats around St. Petersburg for Bull Redfish or the mouth of the Manatee River for huge, hard-fighting Snook, top-notch fishing action is guaranteed. In the cards is anything from Speckled Trout, Redfish, Snook, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Tarpon to Sharks, Snappers, and Groupers.
 
Day trips are a great opportunity to go after a variety of species, from Bull Reds, lots of Specks, Mackerel, and more. Of course, the ultimate catch in these prolific waters is Tarpon, and you have the best chance of landing a giant on full day trips. Light tackle and fly fishing is the name of the game in these parts, and you’re in for a workout because most fish are relentless fighters.
 
On the night fishing excursions, you will focus your fishing efforts around docks and structures, which turn into top fish hangout spots. Snook night fishing is superb in Tampa Bay, as is going after Sheepshead, Redfish, Trout, and more.
 
Fishing with a local guide means you don’t have to worry about licensing, the captain will take care of everything. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to land your next trophy and get a taster of the superb inshore fishing in Tampa Bay.
