Tampa Bay Fishing | Flats & Backcountry

The flats and back-country waters in and around Tampa are some of the finest fishing grounds in the world for Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout and Cobia.

There are shallow flats, and miles of peaceful back-country which are the breeding grounds of most game fish. You can target schools of Redfish roaming the flats, Trout feeding in the miles of healthy sea grass, Tarpon Rolling along the bridges and passes throughout the bay, or Snook lying in the miles of undeveloped Mangroves lining Tampa Bay.

There is also fantastic near shore fishing around many artificial wrecks, and reefs where you’ll find Grouper, Mackerel, Mangrove Snapper and many other species that will make for a great day of fishing!

Top that off with a breathtaking daily sunrise and sunset frequented with Dolphins and Manatees. It’s all waiting for you here.

Tampa, Florida Fishing in Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay is one of the state’s largest natural harbors which houses a plethora of gamefish who call this place home. Tampa Bay is also the state’s largest natural open-water estuary. What this means for you is nonstop year round fishing action!

Tampa Bay is fed by well over a 100 inland tributaries. In these you will find brackish water rivers and creeks that allow for some of the best backcountry fishing action in the state. This also provides temperate waters for game fish to congregate in when water temps change in the bay.

Tampa Bay also houses a huge mangrove system that creates prime habitat for our more than 200 species of fish.

Tampa Bay has an overall average depth of 12 feet, but this is broken up by huge natural grass flats for prime sight fishing opportunities, as well as deeper channels that house much larger inshore gamefish.

If you want to learn even more about fishing with us here, you can visit our Trip Info and FAQ pages.

Feel free to give the Captain a call or email with any further questions or start planning your trip today! 813-727-9890
