    Tampa Bay Fishing

    Stretching out at around 400 square miles, Tampa Bay is the largest open-water estuary system in the state of Florida. It is also considered one of the world’s most productive natural ecosystems. This is because this type of estuary is one where saltwater from the Gulf of Mexico and freshwater feeds from all along the coast mix. It is here where several species of gamefish, baitfish, and crustaceans spend their critical stages of development protected from larger open water predators.

    For anglers, this means that Tampa Bay is one of the most productive fisheries in the State. Housing over 200 species of fish, prime habitat, diversified ecological structures, temperate climate, and a plethora of baitfish, Tampa Bay is also a year-round active fishery.

    Tampa offers inshore, backwater, and flats fisherman shots at redfish, snook, sea trout, black drum, flounder, snapper, and many other local favorites throughout the year. Seasonally, we also get the Tarpon migration and better shots at pelagic species such as mackerel and cobia. Even big game fisherman who loves to fight on light tackle will find shots at grouper and sharks to be abundant.

    All in all, Tampa Bay is one of the hottest places to fish in the Southeast United States, Fishn’ Fl welcomes guests from all over the world on our daily fishing trips. We offer the best in equipment, an expert local guide, and we are centralized in this epic location. Come Join Us!
