Capt. Anthony booked our afternoon trip on short notice. When we arrived at the ramp 30 minutes early, he was waiting for us and we left the dock immediately for the fishing area. While the fishing …wasn’t hot and heavy for the most part, at no fault of Capt. Anthony. We still managed to catch several snook, a couple sharks and a few catfish. We chose to fish for snook in lieu of bottom fish, which he told us in advance would result to more fish being caught, but maybe not the size we were after. Capt. Anthony was very accommodating and made the trip really fun. I will definitly use him again if we come back to the Tampa area. Thanks Anthony and Joey for the good time. See More
Once you hit thirty meters deep, you are offshore, in the deep water fishing zone. Here, the boats get more robust, the fish harder to reel in, and the equipment more sturdy. Your small motorboat is traded in for a charter or large fishing vessel, and you are therefore in the running to catch some serious fish. The fishing becomes more athletic and less of a relaxing day out on the boat. (Of course, you can always relax offshore, too … you just may get interrupted with an intense haul.) It’s safe to say that offshore has more variables, more of the unknown, and a lot more potential physical exertion.
Be it Tampa, St Pete, Clearwater, Bradenton or Sarasota, there’s no shortage of hotspots that fish well throughout the calendar year. Here, we’ll cover some of the area’s most popular species and dominant fishing techniques. We also might just give you a reason or two to put Tampa Bay fishing at the top of this year’s bucket list.

Perhaps one of the most underrated Bay fish, Black Drum are incredibly fun to catch. Also, as they can be anything from a few pounds to 90lb+ monsters, you never know what you may find on the other end of the line. Typically found in larger concentrations throughout the winter months, they’re a sucker for shrimp and gather around docks and in shallow waters.
There are plenty of captains willing to clean and fillet the fish for you following the trip. Unlike Tarpon, Reds make for a delicious table fare. In fact, many of the local restaurants will be more than happy to cook your catch. How’s that for a fresh lunch?
For diverse fishing opportunities, you can’t beat Fort DeSoto County Park. Start with the Gulf Pier stretching more than 1,000 feet into the Bay near the open waters of the Gulf. A strong tidal current attracts bait fish, which in turn bring in the big fish — everything from king mackerel to tarpon and sharks. (You’re also likely to see at least a couple of dolphin frolicking nearby.)
Talk to the Locals – You should talk to your local tackle shop employee in order to find out what’s going on in the area you plan to fish in. They’ll know what’s going on and what the best bait to use is at the time of year you’re fishing in. You might even want to consider joining a local angler’s club where anglers get together to swap stories, plan trips and drink beer.
When the fish are thick, tip a bare jig with a live fiddler crab and it’s pompano fireworks. Pomps may bite one-here-one-there, but more often than not, you’ll have to search several pilings to find the mother lode. Do your looking with jigs and hit the school with fiddlers.
Had a busy second week fishing both the bay and Clearwater harbor area. Fishing was good with Redfish, Trout, Snook and Triple tail being caught. Early in the week I fished out of Safety harbor and we fished for snook and trout. Did good on both, middle of the week I fished for triple tail out of Dunedin Marina, and we started the day by running south along the stone crab traps looking for Triple tail. We ran down from Clearwater beach to sandy key, and made our way down to Johns pass and St.pete beach where we caught a 6 triple tail with 2 shorts, 2 just legal, and 2 jumbos. I finished off the week fishing back over in Dunedin Clearwater area catch trout and a few redfish.
For Snook enthusiasts that would rather avoid the summer heat, night fishing is a highly-productive alternative. Snook are nocturnal and generally prefer to feed at night anyway. You’ll typically find them scouting for dinner underneath the dock lights.
