Inshore fishing – Our typical inshore flats fishing is a blast for anyone.  From novice to an advanced angler the inshore flats fishing have lots of opportunity. The backwaters of Tampa Bay, Clearwater and St. Pete as well as surrounding waters are full of species such as tarpon, snook, redfish, trout, and a large variety of other targeted species.  The average depth of water fished is about 3 feet.  Most of the fishing done on the flats is in relatively calm shallow water.   Many anglers enjoy the inshore trip because of the abundant wildlife and as well as variety of species to be caught. Because we fish near large schools of fish, you, your family and friends will have the opportunity to catch more than you can handle.  The flats are teaming with life, from eagles to manatee and dolphin, there is always something to watch if you’re not too busy catching fish.

Tarpon fishing – Our area is a nicely kept secret in regards to it’s tarpon fishery.  In early April tarpon can be found off our beaches and backcountry. Just to the south, tarpon migrate north to set up shop in deep depressions on the flats.  These tarpon are typically travel in small pods of 10-25 fish.

As we move into prime time tarpon season in May and June, tarpon migration comes full swing, around our passes and bridges. Live bait fishing along our passes and bridges is truly an experience of a life time!

“Hill tide” tarpon fishing – The “Hill Tide” is what is known as a very strong outgoing tide caused by the new and full moons.  These strong outgoing tides of May, June and early July create a major flow of crab flooding out into the gulf to spawn. Hill tides bring in thousands of small pass crabs that have been flushed out of the backwaters of the bay. When this happens the tarpon go crazy!  Most of the trips for the “Hill Tide” are evening trips.  There is nothing quite like watching the day come to a close on the Gulf of Mexico while you’re fighting your trophy tarpon.

Near shore fishing and offshore fishing is also available.
