Fishing andCharlotte Harbor Fishing
Tampa Bay fishing - Even though the skylines of Tampa and St. Petersburg are visible on the horizon, the fishing is wild and wonderful. Tampa Bay is the largest estuary in Florida and offers the same type of fishing found in Charlotte Harbor. Fish the flats and mangrove shorelines of Terra Ceia, Miguel and Joe Bays. Further to the north are Bishop Harbor and Cockroach Bay.
A full day trip to the backcountry of world famous Charlotte Harbor is like „stepping back in timeš. It‚s miles of mangrove shorelines, shallow grass flats, sand and oyster bars are home to snook, trout, redfish, tarpon and more. You will also marvel in the wildlife that is abundant there- white pelicans, herons, egrets, ospreys, dolphins and manatees call the area home. Since the area is mostly very shallow, it is accessible only by shallow draft flats boats and wading the flats and sight fishing is also a good option.
Each of these areas is about 40 miles from Sarasota, so we trailer to
these areas and launch close to the area that we will fish. Due to the distance,
these are full day trips only.
