Whether you’re a St. Petersburg local setting out on uncharted waters, or you’re visiting the area and looking for bragging rights with your fishing buddies back home, Non Stop Fishing Charters offers you a chance to experience St. Pete’s Fishing Hot Spots, all with the help of your own inshore fishing guide, Captain Kevin Walton.
Capt. Matt always delivers. Regardless of the season, He knows where the fish are and can get there in his very comfortable shallow running Andros 26′ boat. He provides his anglers with top notch fishing gear and a great history of his home waters, Tampa Bay. If you want to have a fantastic fishing trip in Tampa Bay, I highly recommend a charter with Capt. Matt!-Corey Maysles
Del Bello Park fishing pier is managed by the Town of Redington Shores. The pier is small as compared to others, as it is over water for 20 feet out and has an 80 foot section that runs parallel with the shore. This pier does not provide a fishing license and you must obtain one from Florida to fish here. A picnic area and fresh water are available. No restrooms at this location.
Parking along Pass A Grille Way and the side Avenues, No railings on the pier. Pier sticks out into the water about 75 feet and the “T” section is about 110 feet in length parallel with the shore. 5 benches to sit on and drop a line and relax. Trash receptacles are available, please place monofilament line in receptacles.
Enjoyed all the information in this article. Our trip will be in February 2018. I normally fish fresh water lakes in several states for bass and specs and have enjoyed many years of fishing Lake Erie for walleye, perch and small and large mouth bass. Looking forward to learning the different spices in and around the bay. God bless and happy fishing Al Osborne.

Cold water Fishing in Tampa Bay – Tampa Bay Fishing Report What a weird weather pattern we’ve dealt with these past few weeks; one week it’s really cold like we’re in the North pole and then it’s back to normal with temps in the mid 60’s to lower 70’s. A lot of people asked what more…

Redfish are schooled up in a few areas of Tampa Bay, ready to put up a fight. When the waters cool off a bit, Snook fishing is just as exciting. 11-16″ Snapper are among the popular catches. Tarpon are also willing to bite once located.

Near the end of the pier, Kevin Chiem is using a sabiki rig to catch greenbacks for bait. Chiem, 30, is a Skyway pier regular. He travels from Tampa at least once a week to see what’s biting in some of the most active water a Tampa Bay fishing pier has to offer.
Unlike the Skyway, which literally happened by accident, The Long Pier at Redington Shores was built in 1962 expressly to allow fishermen to catch more of the Gulf’s bounty than they could from shore. The 1,200-foot-long pier boasts a long history of significant catches, including tarpon, snook, redfish, kingfish, flounder, drum, trout, pompano, whiting and an occasional shark.
Our lures can catch you anything from feisty little snapper blues to grander blue marlin. Pick from an incredible selection of plugs, spoons and trolling lures. You’ll find offerings from major manufacturers like Yo-Zuri, DOA and Iland Lures. You’ll even discover some wooden lures and custom-made artificials here.
There is a silver lining to all of this bad weather news however. First, the worst is behind us and second, there are plenty of big seatrout out there waiting to be caught as fishing pressure has been incredibly light. On several recent Tampa Fishing Charters, large trout were caught but both patience and effort were required. Once an area was located that had trout, action was generally not fast. A fish or two would be caught, then the boat would be repositioned and another fish or two would be caught. As is usually the case, the bite was better on moving water. With cold temperatures resulting in an absence of whitebait, large shrimp were the go to bait. Another difficulty created by the weather was that, due to a shortage of small fish, birds were hyper aggressive and would relentlessly attempt to steal the free-lined select shrimp being presented. A trick used by some Tampa Fishing Guides for minimizing bait loss is to add a slip bobber which holds the bait just off the bottom but also add a small split shot 6 – 12 inches up from the bait so when casting, the bait sinks quickly and is not consumed by a bird. The expectation on most Tampa / Clearwater Fishing Charters is that limits of trout will be secured on every trip. This should again become reality as February arrives with average temperatures being higher…yes, January is the coldest month.
Tampa Bay fishing charters have been catching lots of Snook, a few reds, and limits of trout. The bay fishing is about to get really good as soon as the first cold fronts hit and the fish push into the bay, and for the anglers that will be here for this we will have 50-100 fish days fishing for snook and reds.
He is a professional with a client first focus- guest after guest on these charters has considered Captain Jason Dozier a lifelong friend by the time they step off the boat. He spends his time not only making sure your drag is screaming, but also showing you the tips and tricks of the trade. He can dive deep into things like lure and choice for the given conditions, knot tying, rigging, or any topic you wish to learn more about while on the water.
Tampa Bay Fishing waters come in from several locations creating a dynamic inshore fishery. The tidal flows and water flows come together to create amazing differences in the sea floor. At the same time this mix of currents and tides create a highly active fishery with “fish highways.”
