Fishing Tampa

The Tampa Bay region of Florida has some of the best fishing in the U.S. and knowing the terrain where these fish hide as well as what to use for bait can be the difference between doing some "fishing" and "catching". Redfish, snook, and trout are some of the main sought after inshore species sought after when fishing in Tampa Bay and this article has some quick pointers that might help you increase your odds of landing one.

Like many offshore species, the ones mentioned above tend to hang around structure or objects that offer them good places to ambush prey or avoid predators. Some good examples of structure around Tampa Bay are oyster beds, bridges, docks & pilings, and mangroves. Being able to effectively locate or spot these structures is half the skill of fishing. The best anglers have a real eye or locating the kinds of terrain mentioned above and the more you practice through trial and error, the better you'll become.

Homes typically line much of the inter coastal water ways of Tampa Bay and almost all of these homes contain boat docks. Residential boat docks (especially ones with lights on in the evening) usually yield all kinds of fish species. One obvious reason for this is the cover and hiding spots the actual dock offers. There are also many species of fish that feed on the algae and barnacles that grow on the pilings supporting these structures. Hoards of bait fish are attracted to the light fixtures many home owners install under their docks and predatory fish obviously hang out there to feed as well.

Other effective artificial baits include top water plugs, and light weight (1/8 - oz) jig heads. Top water plugs are a lot of fun and attract fish with built in rattles and water movement. Watching a big fish come up out of the water after a plug is really exciting and beautiful to watch. Plastic shad and grub tails are two of my favorite things to fit my light weight jig head with. weedless jigs are also available to help keep you from getting stuck in the grass flats. Hope you enjoyed the tips! You can find many more helpful articles like this one on my favorite fishing social network Tight Lines & God bless!

Best Tarpon Fishing

The sky reflected neatly over the inviting blue and clear waters, home to the Tampa fishing charters - or merely an artistic delineation of an immovable inspiring scenery; only someone who's fished in the blue of the Tampa Bay area can tell the tale right - and we guide you through the writing of one such!

In no later than 10 minutes of departing from the docks at Tampa, you can look forward to fishing fun in the clear and abundantly inhabited waters of the coastline here that is home to many species of healthy, clear-eyed and large size fish, including sharks! Fishermen hiring Tampa Fishing Charters are known to secure a heavy bite in a matter of minutes after casting a line - ready to reel in a small catch, if not the big one, (yeah, the kind that is fodder for those long, fishing tales - the one that got away? - Yes, that one only!)

The best Tampa fishing charters include a Tarpon hunt adventure. The mere size of the Tarpon and the fight it puts up when it is caught is what makes the Tarpon a favorite game for any angler. Many fishermen agree that there is an art in pulling in one of these great fish, and that it is not something most amateurs can handle. In their attempt to get away from the trap can end up pulling in the angler into the drink. Fishing for Tarpon is one of the most desired adventures in the Tampa Bay, with almost every angler trying to bring in the great silver king on every fishing trip you embark on.
