http://tampafishingoutfitters.com Another thing I like is they have a rewards card, when you spend $25 you get a punch, once the card is filled up you get a $100 this is excellent too because we all know $25 is just the cost of showing up at a fishing supply store. If your in the need of new Rods, Reels, Sunglasses or every type and style of bait ever made this is the place to be, so stop by and check them out. I just love the place so I thought I would post this Heck I don't even know if they know I posted it. Thanks though this is the type of place we need to keep around so visit often and support your local Fisherman!

I got an anonymous Fishing Report for Tampa Bay from my site. Thanks for the Report!
"Spotted sea bass, black-tip shark, pompano, and mackerel were here in abundance most all keep-able sizes. First pylon off of MacDill off-limits sign southwest corner"
The Weather and nice falling barometer has helped the fishing lately. Again thanks for the report.

Although the days are hot and the afternoons filled with random Thunder Storms some fishing for fun can be had off the beaches and Grass flats around Tampa. Your best bet on days when it hits a heat index of 100 is to use live or dead bait. Target areas that have moving current and changes in depth or structure. Too shallow of water makes the temperature of the water too hot for the fish so finding that happ medium of about 6-8 feet seems to produce the best for me. If your looking for Trout or Redfish the Mornings and Evenings seem to be the best times, and even then you can still use top waters to lure them. Beach fishing also is the best in the mornings and evenings but if your looking for some middle of the day fishing it might just fit the bill to fish for whatever takes the bait. Along many of the beaches you can catch small "silver" fish (not sure what they are but they are a drum about 10-15 inches long and are all silver in color and have a black coloring on the very back top of their tail not like a spot on a Redfish). You can also catch Catfish, Flounder Small Gray Snapper and Sharks. Its not the targeted game fish that many fisherman are stalking BUT if your just hanging out on the beach and wanna get a line wet it can be fun to pull in some of these fish and a nice flounder could be lunch. Light Tackle a Small circle hook and a few split shot can make the bait bounce accross the bottom and look good to just about any of the fish mentioned.
