The Teramar rod series was created for anglers from two very different locations: the Southeast and the West Coast. As a result, we built two unique series in one. Southeastern anglers will find perfect rods for plug casting for snook, spinning on the flats or tarpon fishing under passes. West anglers have an array of rods that includes trigger-stick casting rods for swim baits and jig sticks.

 Use south winds to your advantage and work the shore lines. The Redfish bite can be pretty good, with chances of catching Trout and Snook. Small Black Drum and Sheepshead can also make an occasional appearance.

This year the tournament is being hosted at the all new Harbor Master Tiki Grille at Bay Pines Marina. We are excited to be returning to this great marina. Dave Travis and his family are a class act and awesome Old Salt supporters.

Debris from the old bridge was put in the water to form a reef. Because it was a bridge, both piers sit high above the water. It makes for spectacular views not only of the deep blue water, but of the new Skyway bridge just to the east.

Then, if you feel the urge of fishing the deep blue waters off the shore, you will head out for Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, and Mahi-Mahi on your deep sea fishing charter. There are amazing fishing opportunities off the coast. Tampa Bay offshore charters can meet the needs of those who love to hear screaming drags. Fight with King Mackerel, Sailfish, Hogfish, Permit, Snapper, Triggerfish, Cobia, and Amberjack. You can even wrestle Sharks!

Our fishing rights are under attack like never before in the history of this nation! I urge everyone, saltwater and freshwater, boat or landside fishermen to get involved in the politics of fishing now! (See the two “Warnings” below) There are so-called ‘environmental’ groups getting ‘tough’ with the politicians and pretending they are pro fishing, when in reality they want all uses of our waters to cease immediately. No more fishing, recreational or commercial, no water skiing, no boating, no houses on the shores, also no hunting, no hiking in the wild, NO NOTHING!

The Intracoastal waters of Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs add to your potential catch of redfish, snook, grouper, pompano, sheepshead, spotted seatrout and Spanish mackerel. A few fights with a jack, ladyfish or gafftopsail catfish will keep the day lively while the mild climate provides for favorable fishing conditions year-round.

The family-owned Gulfstream II Fishing Charters, based in Clearwater, has been leading Tampa Metro area clients on fishing expeditions since 1974. The fleet includes three vessels, including the business’ namesake, the Gulfstream II, a U.S. Coast Guard-inspected boat that can carry up to 22 people, as well as the Gulfstream, which can carry as many as a dozen people. The third vessel, the Wizard, is 35 feet long and certified to carry smaller groups, of six people or fewer.

Tampa Bay is fed by well over a 100 inland tributaries. In these you will find brackish water rivers and creeks that allow for some of the best backcountry fishing action in the state. This also provides temperate waters for game fish to congregate in when water temps change in the bay.

Annual recreational fishing licenses and permits are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase or the alternate starting date if selected at the time of purchase, unless otherwise specified on the face of the license.

Yes, please meet Captain Mike Anderson. Born and raised in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on June 9, 1968, Captain Mike was introduced to fishing at a very young age. Reared in a family of fishing enthusiasts, Mike joined his father and uncle on a regular basis throughout his childhood, as they would cast for walleye, muskie and perch.

Don’t forget to bring the kids. They are the future of our sport. If they get to go, they will learn to love the outdoors, inshore fishing charters. Remember your camera, you never know what you might hook while fishing in Destin, Florida – The Luckiest Charter Boat Fishing Village in the world!

The biggest difference between inshore and offshore fishing is the depth of the water, with 30 meters of water being an accepted line-in-the-sand acting as the border between the two. When you’re fishing inshore, you’ll usually be within a few miles of shore and, more often than not, within casting distance of it working popular spots like beaches, rocky shorelines, piers, jetties, flats, mangroves and islands with light tackle. Offshore trips that often require a commitment of 12 to 72 hours will take you anywhere from 30 to 130 miles away from the coast. This kind of water warrants larger sportfishing boats equipped with heavier gear and technology like sonar and radio. The techniques used out here are less hands on – until a marlin is trying to steal all of your line – and you may only catch one or two, but hookups can last hours.

Hard Card: A hard, credit card-style license can be purchased in addition to purchasing your annual or five-year license. The ‘hard card’ costs $5. If you purchase the ‘hard card,’ your temporary license should read “hard card shipped separately.” NOTE: Each $5 ‘hard card’ can hold up to seven different licenses or permits. If you have more than seven licenses or permits and want them all on a card, you will need to purchase additional cards at $5 each.

The first edition was structured to be a basic reference, and was used widely by Captain Mel Berman as his seminar workbook because of its broad collection of topics.  This title is out of print due to changing publishers, but the revised edition, which I’ve drastically added to its content in detail, will be published in the near future.
