What You’ll Catch Fishing in Tampa

If a fishing adventure is on the cards, why not go for a deep sea expedition on a chartered boat? Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay offers boating and fishing opportunities throughout the year.

One of the most unique qualities that Tampa’s waters hold is the types of fishing that anglers can experience. The bay hosts some of the best saltwater fish to catch while the inland lakes and rivers are filled with freshwater fish. For anglers who prefer fishing by the shallow waters, rent a fishing charter and throw your line into the saltwater for a chance to catch drum, redfish, snook, pompano, trout, and sheepshead. If you want to fish like a local, head over to Tampa’s best fishing lakes to catch largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, and bream.

 

Before You Go

It is important to keep in mind the boating and fishing regulations in the area. In order to fish anywhere in Florida, you need to obtain a Florida fishing license. Separate freshwater and saltwater licenses or combination licenses are available for purchase through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or some of the bait and tackle shops in select areas. We recommend that you also bring a copy and read through Florida’s fishing regulations guides. These guides are filled with information on rules, seasons, and limits while you are out angling on the water.

    Inshore Cruise, Shelling, Fishing in Clearwater, Florida Aboard a Mako pro 17

    Had an amazing day out on the water. The boat was perfect for me to do some fishing and Jeff was a great host. Gave me spots to check out and the lay of the land. Everything was in tip top shape and the boat ran like new. It was so beautiful out there I didn’t want to come back, but will definitely be booking this again on my next trip down here!!

    Rent 21ft Deck Boat in Ruskin, Florida / can deliver tampa st pete

    James thank you for allowing us the pleasure of renting your boat. We had a great 4th of July at Beer Can Island. The boat was beautiful and just perfect for what we needed. Lots of room for everyone. We've always rented boats like a Sea Fox from the boat club and had never considered a pontoon boat. I'm so happy that our original choice was already rented and that your pontoon boat was available and offered. It made the whole family realize that this is way to go.....a pontoon boat when you have several people. A pontoon will be our next choice again the next time. James was awesome. On time, helpful, and friendly. Thanks again James.

    Absolutely fantastic, The boat ran great, the process couldn't have been easier. James met us at the ramp, put the boat in and picked it up when we were done. Great day on the water, best part was we didn't have to spend a half hour at the end of the day hosing down and flushing the boat. Thank you James!
