The Hillsborough River is a time-tested producer along with surrounding ship basins. The mud flats at St. Pete Clearwater Airport are also fairly good. Fishing the deep flats at MacDill Air Force Base, Mermaid Point and Apollo Beach are all good choices, too.

“Fish today get a lot of pressure, so to get bites, drop in leader strength and hook sizes. For example, when we used to live-bait for sailfish, 80-pound fluorocarbon leaders were standard and 50-pound leaders were used by those in the know. Today, 40 is the new 50. We’re using lighter leaders on sailfish and circle hooks one to two sizes smaller to get them to bite.”
It’s Frosty Out There – The first week in January confirmed that winter will come once again….5 – 6 nights straight with temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s….more than likely the coldest stretch of nights we’ll see this year. From a fishing guide’s perspective, that simply t more…
For a natural chum job, scrape the pilings to crush and release barnacles or mussels. The scent stimulates sheepshead, drum, redfish and pompano—all likely recipients of cut shrimp dropped into the scent zone on 1⁄4-ounce jigheads. (Light hooks and splitshots also work, but jigheads effect a more streamlined presentation that drops quicker in current without spooking fish.)
Speckled Sea Trout will show up in good numbers as we get through the holidays. The cooler water temps will attract the larger “gator” trout to the shallower grass flats during the warmer parts of the day. My favorite places to target are sandy “potholes” that are peppered throughout any productive area. The nice thing about trout is they will generally take an artificial lure sometimes just as good as live bait. First thing in the morning, I like throwing top water plugs and as the sun comes up I will switch to soft plastics. One of my favorite surface baits is a Zara Spook in the “bone/white” color. On the colder days, a live shrimp will do the trick. Try using a Cajun Thunder Back Bay popping cork if they fish are not active. The sound produced by the popping cork really gets them hunting for the bait. The size limit for Speckled Sea Trout is 15” min, and the bag limit is 4 per person with only 1 fish measuring over 20”.
Tarpon are one of Tampa’s premier Sport Fishing charters species in Tampa Fl. When you hook into a Tarpon, aka The Silver King, on your Sport Fishing bucket list, you will know you have hooked the fish of a lifetime!
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!
• Ready To Run: If you’re targeting the bridge big boys—tarpon, sharks, cobia—you may have to run down a hefty fish. You may not have time to pull anchor, so rig a float to your anchor line and simply uncleat the rope and toss the whole overboard when go-time arises. After the fight, return to your float and retie your anchor line at your original position.
