There are shallow flats, and miles of peaceful back-country which are the breeding grounds of most game fish. You can target schools of Redfish roaming the flats, Trout feeding in the miles of healthy sea grass, Tarpon Rolling along the bridges and passes throughout the bay, or Snook lying in the miles of undeveloped Mangroves lining Tampa Bay.

Your typical Tampa Bay fishing trip can begin with casting jigs, live bait, and crank bait around the various bridges that traverse the bay. Fishing there can be rewarded with the famous bait stealer, Mangrove Snapper, which also live around docks, seawalls, and rock piles. Tampa is home to a myriad of charter boats. Whether are looking for a fun day out with your friends and family or for a corporate outing, there are dozens of packages available for you. Go for light tackle action for Redfish, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, and Trout, catch Tarpon on a fly. Bottom fish for Grouper, tasty Snapper or Amberjack. Enjoy trolling offshore for Wahoo and Mahi-Mahi. Whichever trip you have in mind, you will be able to make a great catch possible.

6 At Anna Maria, trout are hanging on the edges of the flats adjacent to deeper water of the Intracoastal Waterway in Sarasota Bay. Schools of Spanish mackerel are mixed in with schools of ladyfish in areas holding fry bait. Redfish and black drum are holding in the potholes. “The redfish are lower slot size, but the black drum are good size, some are pushing 32 inches,” Crawford says.

Tampa Bay’s Snook and Redfish bite has been has hot! Inside the bay snook are bunching back up for the spawn, and the redfish are schooled up as well make for some fun fishing. Snook have been averaging anywhere from 20”-30” with a few large biting as well. Redfish have been top of the slot size 27” or even as large as 36” and we are catching them in shallow water 2′ or less. Live bait and Cut bait have both been working well. Trout fishing has also be outstanding, and getting a few for a fresh fish dinner hasn’t been a problem.
Basic light to medium tackle may be able to cover you sufficiently in most situations when fishing in freshwater.
