Tampa Bay Fishing
Tampa Bay is the state’s largest open water estuary. Spanning 400 squale miles and holding over 200 species of fish, Tampa Bay is a world renowned fishing destination. Tampa Bay fishing is as good as it gets.
This area holds an active fishery that s available to both visiting and resident anglers all year long. With its temperate climate, direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, and freshwater feeds from dozens upon dozens of sources, the state’s finest inshore game fish call Tampa home.
Tampa Bay houses a diverse ecological system. For sight fisherman the expansive grass flats and back country mangrove systems offer excellent opportunities to landing a plethora of species. Some of these are Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Sea Trout, Mackerel, Snapper, Flounder, and Grouper.
Then there are deeper water channels that run throughout the bay system, as well as along intracoastal waterways. These offer anglers shots at a larger number of fish species that are sure to get your drag screaming. Anything from sharks to Goliath Grouper can be found cruising these deeper water areas.
