Deep Sea Fishing in Tampa

Tampa is one of those locations that might surprise you. Known for excellent inshore fishing in Tampa Bay, the town is already a great place to go for an angling adventure. But go deep sea fishing in Tampa and you’ll find that almost every famous Floridian fish is at your fingertips!

Deep sea fishing grounds are only 30 to 40 miles away from the shore here. They’re inhabited by Blue and White Marlin, Blackfin, Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, as well as classic game fish like Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Amberjack and many more. On the ocean floor, you can fish for Gag, Red, and Black Grouper, as well as Mutton and Red Snapper. And you’ll encounter Sharks, of course.

Since the fishing grounds are further out, these trips will usually be full-day or multiple day events. A longer excursion is needed to make sure you can spend enough time fishing to make the trip worthwhile. If you’re an ambitious angler, you can spend several days on the water, trying to catch your next personal best.

There are several hot spots that are popular with fishing charters in this area. Bottom fishing trips usually find success around wrecks and artificial reefs like the Mexican Pride shipwreck, or Treasure Island II reef. Anglers who are looking to catch Marlin, Tuna and other big game can head out to The Steps. This is a section on the drop-off, with good chances for finding Marlin and even Swordfish!

If looking for a bigger boat to go out farther don't forget to ask about the boat lol I was expecting a bigger boat (didn't ask or specify) and wanted them to go further out but from the two boys point of view I got exactly what I wanted...a great experience...

Unfortunately we couldn't keep the snook we caught because the season was ended early in this November due to the red tide, but we still had fun catching them!

I would find out a head of time the allowable length of fish and in-season fish that you can keep. We caught snook and couldn't keep because they were out of season. The trout we caught didn't meet the 15 inch requirement. Even though we enjoyed catching the fish, we were hoping to take some home with us.

For maximum action as number of catches. I recommend the flats. More serious fishermen and conditions permitting Inrecommend Tarpon or Grooper.

Find someone experienced and honest about the species that are biting at different times of the year so your experience are realistic. This will make for a much more fun experience.

Get ready for some of the best inshore fishing of your life. The flats and mangroves of Tampa Bay have some truly world class fishing. Be prepared to hear your drag scream with bull reds, over slot snook, and slob trout.

Since this was my first time fishing this area, I really didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. There is a wide variety of fish, and they are EVERYWHERE. I don't know how the rest of the year is, but March 2018 was a fantastic trip for me. I caught 20 fish in a 4-hour charter, including four different kinds of fish, and I just finished dinner made from part of my catch.

Start with redfish or snook. They are more reliable and are in shallow water. Out of the wind on cooler winter days.

Get a guide. Read reviews to select the right guide for you. Be patient and dont expect miracles. Tip the guys running the boat and make sure they have a lot of live bait.
