St.Pete Beach has also been providing similar action to Clearwater beach, and the Redfish have been providing consistent action for charter trips we have done lately. St. Pete is a great area to fish out of because of the action at the mouth of the bay which means every fish that goes in and out of the bay have to pass St.Pete beach going between Egmount Key and Ft.Desoto Park, if you would like to fish any of these areas specifically just let me know.

September Fishing has been good! Hurricane Irma hit Florida hard, but didn’t hit Clearwater beach, St. Pete beach, or Tampa Bay.

Later in the coming month, tides heights will start to improve. This, coupled with warming waters, will improve local redfishing. With fish still wanting to get warmer, look for them around oyster bars on the higher tides as well as up on the flats in areas with potholes during the warmer parts of the day. Until cold leaves for good, generally around the middle of March, redfish will respond best to crustaceans such as shrimp. When the warm settles in, they’ll eat just about anything.

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.”
Nearshore fishing trips of St.Pete beach and Clearwater beach have been catching nice sized mackerel and schoolie sized kingfish. The random cobia have been showing up as well, and we still have some sharks in the area.
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.
Bag and length limits apply to listed saltwater species. There are no bag, possession, or length limits on game or nongame fish, except as listed in this guide. See definitions of daily bag and possession limits.
I am looking to know more about inshore fishing. I was unaware that the main difference between inshore and offshore fishing was the depth of the water. It would be good to consider which fish one is seeking and then plan a fishing trip accordingly.

Florida Inshore Angler.com was created by Allen Applegarth to provide Florida inshore saltwater fishing anglers with saltwater fishing tips, saltwater fishing reports, how tos, fishing videos, fishing and boating related product reviews, and a forum for anglers and other outdoor activities such as camping and hunting. A few years after establishing this saltwater fishing site in 2007, I decided to write another book based on Florida inshore fishing, fittingly named after this site.
