Spearfishing in Tampa Bay

If you’d like to try your hand at a fishing technique completely different from the standard rod and reel, the spearfishing Tampa Bay has to offer will blow your mind. Bowfishing is a type of spearfishing, and particularly popular in this area. For your fishing adventure, you will use a bow with a reel on it and specialized arrows to shoot your catch in the clear and shallow waters.
 
Tampa Bay has plenty of experienced bowfishers who can take you out for an exhilarating time on the bow. Your guide will explain everything you need to know and he’ll have the equipment ready for you on board. You will be prowling flats and mangrove-lined shorelines for Flounder, Stingrays, Cobia, and Sheepshead, just to name a few. Even if you’re a beginner, these trips will be a memorable experience.
 
You can take your pick between day trips and night jaunts. Day trips usually last four hours, they cost around $400 for a group, and are perfectly suited for the first-time bowfishers. Night trips by the light of flood lamps pose a challenge for your fishing skills and senses, and they’re in the same price range as day expeditions. Seasoned anglers love these night hunting adventures, and novices are exhilarated by the experience as well. Nothing will shake things up and open new fishing horizons like the spearfishing Tampa Bay promises!

What anglers said about Spearfishing in Tampa Bay

Ask to catch lots of fish, they will put you on a spot to do that, if you ask to catch big fish, they will put you on the spot but if fish do not cooperate well then you won't catch fish. But in the first spot once you start catching fish you never know, you could catch something big .

Plenty of reef and inshore species to target. Don’t expect a deep water pelagic experience. The shelf here doesn’t get to blue water until many miles offshore.

We tried fishing on the piers but had very little luck. We also tried an inshore fishing trip and caught a few small fish but nothing we could keep. We decided to try a longer, deep sea fishing trip and caught many fish and even have fish to bring home.

Was very hot and red tide made the fishing tough, however the Captain and crew did everything possible and fish were caught. If you want to catch fish and have a crew that goes above and beyond, this Captain and crew are top notch.

Be prepared for weather changes in Spring in Florida. We started day with good weather rather calm seas but wind picked up in afternoon and swells built a little.

If this is your first ocean fishing experience I recommend booking with Offshore Addicts. Its a whole lot different than fishing in the midwest where we are from but they made the experience so enjoyable!
