About Fishing in Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay is the state's largest estuary system. It covers 400 square miles and borders 3 different counties. It is fed by a hundred freshwater tributaries and has a direct feed from the Gulf of Mexico. It has deep water channels, expansive grass flats, and a complex backcountry system. All of these ingredients come together to make Tampa Bay one of Florida's best fishing destinations.
Tampa Bay is home to a plethora of Florida's favorites gamefish species, including:
- Sea Trout
- Black Drum
The fishing here is also available all year long. Because of its temperate climate, Tampa Bay houses permanent resident gamefish. It is also part of massive fish migrations that allow for peak seasons for many more species.
We talk about our favorites, but there are literally over 200 species of fish that inhabit this watershed. It is home to massive baitfish populations, and is a dream location for sight and fly fisherman.
