With fishing terms like inshore, offshore, deep sea, big game fishing and more, it can be tough to get a grip on what’s what. In this post we’ll compare inshore versus offshore fishing and help you determine which style best suits you for your next charter fishing trip.

Captain Steve puts you on the fish. Our recent charter had us catching lot’s of trout, snook, red fish and even a bluefish. One of our snook was over 34″ with several trout over 20″. I have fished in Tampa for over 10 years with…More

However, these grounds are home to much more than just the traditional heavy-hitters.

BRRRRR!!! So was this January as cold as it felt? Absolutely! The average temperature range for Tampa in January, per Wikipedia, is 51.2 degrees for a low and 69.5 degrees for a high.  Also, in an average year, there are 4 nights in January where the temperature dips below 40 degrees and 3 days where it passes 80 degrees.  The average temperature range for this January was 48.1 degrees to 67.6 degrees.  There were a whopping 9 nights below 40 degrees and daytime highs didn’t reach 80 degrees once. Although this data would not appear to support the theory that our planet is heating up, 2017 was hottest year on record in Tampa. Go figure. 

5 Around the Sunshine Skyway and lower Tampa Bay, sheepshead are all over the Skyway Bridge area and the approach bridges. Flounder are pretty solid in the South Skyway area. Spanish mackerel have started to show up at the north and south piers. “The tripletail have moved in thick. Look for them on all the crab pots and markers all the way into the bay,” reports Capt. Shawn Crawford of Florida Sport Fishing Outfitters of Bradenton (941-705- 3160).

Myself and my friends 10 yr old son went out with Captain Anthony this morning and we couldn’t have had a better time. My little buddy had a smile on his face all morning and for the rest of the day. …To take a few hours out of his day to give a child an experience he’ll never forget just shows the quality and character of Captain Anthony and Pocket Change Charters. I can’t recommend his services enough. 5 stars doesn’t come close to what he truly deserves. Thank you sir. We’ll not only be back again but as often as you’ll have us. Again, you made Aydens day.

Tampa Bay fishing has also been steady with anglers catching Snook, Snapper, and trout while fishing out of the Gandy boat Ramp. Snook are still out of season but are awesome to target for hard pulling runs, and there wild jumps! Snapper are hanging around the bridge and we have been catching them during the slower tide periods. Trout have been tearing up the bait fish school over the grass flats and some days it can be almost every cast!!

Cpt Steve is friendly, kind and experienced. He’ll put you right on the fish and makes the trip enjoyable regardless of the catches. Great for couples, families or friends. Caight redfish, snook, catfish, trout, ladyfish and an awesome kack crevalle in just half a day….More

    The Teramar spinning rod series was built to suit the very specialized performance requirements of the Southeastern in-shore angler. With hardened alconite guides and cork grips, these rods can not only dish out power and performance, they can handle any situation on the flats. No matter if you are casting plugs to snook, cork & bobber for trout, or chasing tarpon under bridges, the Teramar spinning series will get the job done.

    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.
