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.
Fishing has been great the last few weeks. Our tournament win streak continues as we took 1st Place in the “All Heroes Open” Fishing Tournament hosted by Team ADDO. Our team of Wade Boggs, Steve Yerrid and Bob McDonough fished hard and ended up on top! It was a great event and we look forward to defending our title next year!
Fall is definitely in the air. The mornings are noticeably cooler and the fishing is improving every day. Fortunately for Tampa Bay the red tide that devastated much of Florida’s west coast never got to us. The fishing forecast for the next few months is nothing short of awesome. We are starting to see some of our best snook and redfish fishing as well as a steady tarpon bite for smaller residential tarpon. The kingfish are about to make their fall migration into our area as well. It is one of the few times of the year that you have a chance to catch virtually all species that call the west coast home! The bay is alive with bait and I for one am getting very excited about what the next few months has in store.
If you want to get in on the awesome action now is the time to book your fish catching adventure!
Here are just a few of our more memorable catches from the last two months.

Between Bradenton and Tampa on the southeastern shore of the Bay, lies a magical winter wonderland. TECO power plant located in Apollo Beach is one the best winter fisheries in the world. When the bay and gulf waters cool down, TECO power plant heats up! Anglers, captains, and spectators flock to TECO power plant by land, sea, and air.
Many private planes and helicopters circle to get a birds eye view of this amazing natural winter aquarium. Read More
