Tampa Bay Inshore Fishing
Tampa Bay Inshore Fishing is some of the best inshore, saltwater fishing in Florida. Why? It’s simple. The Tampa Bay Estuary offers miles and miles of ideal inshore game fish habitat. From deep mangrove cuts to sandbar points covered in oyster bars, Tampa Bay has something for all the key species. Snook, spotted sea trout, and red drum (redfish) are the primary targets for Tampa Bay Inshore Fishing. Many anglers that fish in the northern part of the Country tend to see similarities between what they catch up there and what’s available here. Often, they are surprised at the brute strength of our target species. It’s exciting to watch experienced and non-experienced anglers alike as they tackle those hard-hitting snook and redfish. It truly is an experience you won’t soon forget.
Tampa Bay Inshore Fishing Report
Last Update: 12/14/2016 Welcome to December, or “winter” fishing in Tampa Bay. The bite is still good around the area, but tactics have changed. The water temps have cooled considerably, although our up-and-down daily temperatures are keeping it from dropping too much. Sea fog has also become a problem as of late. Fortunately, the bite tends to be better in the warmth of the afternoon, so much of the sea fog has diminished. Live bait is still getting the fish. Redfish and trout are the main targets right now. Large spotted sea trout are much easier to come by this time of year. Both live and artificial baits are working great on trout. My favorite artificial bait is the Berkley Gulp Shrimp, 3″ in pearl white. I don’t know of any plastic bait that out-fishes these things. They are phenomenal. Sheephead are also a target this time of year and can be found on just about any bridge piling or structure around the bay. Smaller hooks and pieces of shrimp will get these fish. They are great table fare as well. Don’t miss out on your winter fishing trip. Stop shoveling snow. It’s 80 degrees and sunny in Tampa Bay!
