Tampa Bay Fishing Guide
When anyone talks about fishing Tampa Bay, they discuss one species: Tarpon. Tampa Bay is synonymous with the “Silver King” and for good reason. Tampa Bay is home to some of the best Tarpon fishing in the world and anglers travel from all points on the compass to experience this amazing fishery.
Tampa Bay’s estuaries, tidal flows and location make it the epicenter of the state’s largest Tarpon migration during the Spring and Summer. Countless Tarpon make their way north to Tampa Bay as part of their annual trek and can add to your angling bucket list.
These transient Tarpon range in size from 50 pounds all the way up to 200 pounds! Tarpon combine the traits of many elite gamefish into one bruising yet acrobatic package: the speed of a bonefish; the aerobatics of a sailfish; the grueling runs of a marlin and the ferocious bites of a tuna. Nothing makes you as “weak in the knees” quite like witnessing a triple-digit Tarpon inhaling your bait a few feet from the boat to be followed by breathtaking jumps and bicep-testing runs. What’s more is that Tarpon have no table value, which means that the Tarpon fishery is strictly Catch and Release.
