Tampa Fishing Report, Friday, June 22, 2017, Florida Fishing Report – Tampa Fishing: Tarpon & Sharks chasing them; latest Florida Algal Bloom & Water Quality / Lake Okeechobee Update and here for Red Tide Report.

Most of the time we fish Tampa’s flats, passes, oyster bars, inlets, and islands.  Sometimes we’ll go offshore of Tampa a couple of miles or so if we’re fishing for goliath grouper, or tarpon or sharks.

Tampa Fishing Report, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, Florida Fishing Report – Tampa Fishing: Big Snook in the passes; we’re big advocates of catch and release, particularly for snook, but pretty much for most species.  Only take what you are going to eat, and a lot of fish are better off as sportfish, even if they are in season.  Our motto is let ‘em get bigger and catch ‘em again!

Perhaps more important to fishing, the Tampa-St. Pete area has a great coastline structure and topography. Barrier islands stretch close to 70 miles from North Pinellas to Venice. In general, barrier islands mean great fishing habitat because they create passes where fish move on the tides in a concentrated fashion, and also protected back-bay areas for the overall ecosystem.

On parts of the west coast of Florida, including the Tampa area, the barrier islands also tend to still have large protected mangrove areas.   Mangroves are critical to the whole lifecycle of the ecosystem. Mangroves are often truly foundational to the formation of the islands and their decaying leaves feed microorganisms that are the starting point of the food chain that leads up to tarpon and sharks at the top of the system!
