What a start to our 2020 fishing season! We have been experiencing some phenomenal inshore fishing for snook, redfish, and trout. There has also been a large number of cobia wintering in our bay this year which bodes well for our upcoming cobia season. Over the last few weeks we have had an incredible snook bite and have enjoyed catching some big jack crevalle and redfish. If you are looking for table fare our sheepshead fishing is about to be on fire as well. If the last few weeks are any indicator of how our upcoming spring season will unfold, its going to be a great one! Call us today at 813-205-2327 to book your spring fishing trip.

Offshore the fishing has been excellent for grouper, snapper, amberjack and hogfish. There is still time to book your wintertime Read More

Cobia are great fighters, great table fare and are one of our most reliable sight fishing targets throughout late spring and summer. I believe there are a few different “migration” patterns for the cobia we catch every year in Tampa Bay. Read More

Tampa Bay is home to four of Florida’s largest bridges including the state’s second largest, the Sunshine Skyway.
