The pristine beaches and mangrove lined shorelines of Tampa Bay, fed by countless freshwater creeks, streams and rivers, which give way to the miles and miles of crystal clear grass flats, are some of the best backcountry fishing locations in the world. Redfish, speckled trout, snook, cobia, mackerel, shark, grouper, tarpon, and many other sport fish species call Tampa Bay home. Tampa boasts year-round great weather and mild temperatures, making any time of year a great time for a Tampa fishing charter vacation.
Tampa offers inshore, backcountry fishing at its finest. The clear, pristine waters of Tampa Bay offer unbeatable opportunities for sight fishing action.
Speckled trout and redfish are year-round residents of Tampa Bay and provide plenty of rod-bending action whether in the backcountry mangroves or on the flats. The redfish action really heats up on the flats in the summer months when large schools of these hard fighting fish converge on the flats to feed. Another year round resident is the cobia. Reaching sizes up to 30 pounds, cobia can be found cruising the flats for crabs or squid, and have developed a reputation as some of the toughest fighting fish on the Bay.
Feisty and fun, the snook fishing heats up in the spring and the fall. Shark, mackerel, and grouper are found throughout the year.
Summer may be the most popular time for a Tampa fishing charter-and with good reason. Each summer giant tarpon up to 200 pounds converge on the Tampa Bay flats to feed, and the action is- in a word- amazing. Multiple hookups are common at the peak of the season, and seeing that flash of silver in the water will get the pulse of any angler pounding. Tarpon provide unbeatable leaping, running, fighting action, and fishing Tampa during the peak of the season is an experience that will never be forgotten.
