Offshore boat fishing, sometimes called deep sea or open water fishing, is fishing in deep water (more than 30 metres) and at some distance from land. It is dangerous compared to shallow water or lake fishing. More knowledge is needed about weather patterns, navigation and safety precautions, and this is not an activity for beginners.

Another one of Florida’s staple game fish, this backcountry brawler thrives in virtually all parts of the Bay. The elusive Snook is caught anywhere from beaches to docks, mangroves, jetties and seawalls. Safe to say, it is uniquely flexible in finding itself a nourishing habitat.

My husband and I went out on a morning trip with Capt Anthony and had an absolute blast! He was incredibly nice and super knowledgeable of what we were looking to catch. We will definitely be calling… him again for a return trip. See More

Tampa Bay during the spring time will still see those tailing Red’s in the flats, but with the addition of big Red’s throw in the mix. Catching Snook becomes more common, and Seatrout will still be lurking actively in the grass flats. Also, Cobia will begin to appear during the migration.

Almost all of the area’s most popular species can be targeted on fly. This includes Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Sea Trout, Cobia and more. The water clears up significantly Fall thru Spring, allowing for an unparalleled sight fishing experience. While mainly an inshore activity, there’s no shortage of nearshore fly fishing opportunities either. Among others, Mackerel and Albacore are well known to take an inviting fly.

2 At Madeira Beach, “The hogfish bite is still going strong despite the full moon from a depth of 40-60 feet. Deeper offshore, the tuna are thick, but it’s been difficult getting to them with the weather. The snapper bite has been good. The moon has the fish on the move and the good weather has them chewing,” reports Capt. Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina (727-393-1947).

Snook, Red Fish, Trout, Tarpon (When in Season – See Tarpon Rates), Drum and anything else that’s chewing depending on the time of year. The Flats Fishing around Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg, FL is Legendary!

For those who don’t believe that EDF, OC, and other enviro groups are working hard in other areas to stop fishing and then will bring that effort home, pay close attention.
