7 At St. Petersburg, “Sheepshead are still all over the place. All the canal docks, rock piles, bridges, and jetties are holding them. Fiddler crabs and shrimp fished with light tackle is the key for these fish,” reports Larry Mastry of Mastry’s Tackle (727-896-8889). The trout bite has picked up off Pinellas Point. Offshore, there’s a good hogfish bite north of the shipping channel in 50 feet of water, Mastry says.
Before purchasing a recreational saltwater fishing license or permit, please make sure you understand what qualifies as Florida residency and whether you really need a license or permit based on the exemptions.
Position yourself according to the water’s direction. You may want to sling a bait under the bridge and let it drift back out; other times, the current will help you position a bait at just the right point.

Captain Betz – Flats and Bay Fishing Charters are the Best… My friends and I come down from Atlanta each year for the Falcons vs Bucs for football, golf, and fishing. Besides the game, fishing with Captain Betz is the highlight of our trip. Not…More
“I was introduced to Jason as a guest on a charter 6 years ago and have been using him ever since. I’ve gone on fishing trips for business, with friends and family (with children) and in each case Jason has always been appropriately service driven in each environment. You just won’t find better.”
The irony is that back when I was growing up in Florida, if someone said, “fishing the flats,” that simply meant you had accidently run your boat up on a sandbar and you went fishing with the lightest tackle you had on the boat while you waited for the tide to come in…

Tampa Bay has had a great Snapper and Snook bite with a few mackerel and sharks being caught as well. Snapper fishing around the bay bridges and public reefs around near Down town St.Pete or off Macdill air force base have been providing plenty of snapper over the 10” keeper size limit, and for there size these fish pull hard! Snook fishing in the bay has been decent, but not crazy good. Most of the fish have been in the mid 20” range. For the anglers wanting sharks there have been a number of sharks patrolling the bait schools throughout the bay.
As a case study, consider the four main bridges which span the Greater Tampa Bay region (see accompanying story). Add to this the many smaller bridges linking residential areas, and the area presents an assortment of emergent structures not unlike the many oil and natural gas drilling rigs dotting the northern Gulf.
