Tampa Bay Inshore Fishing Charters, also known as ‘flats’ or backcountry fishing, target popular inshore game fish such as huge redfish, snook, permit, bass, sea trout and especially tarpon. Backcountry Fly Fishing Charters are growing in popularity and target every species of game fish from bass to tarpon.

Tampa at Night
Tampa Bay, Florida

  Tampa Bay, located on the Gulf coast of Central Florida, includes numerous communities surrounding the largest bay in all of Florida including three of Florida's largest cities, Tampa, Saint Petersburg and Clearwater. The Tampa bay metropolitan area with a population of 2.7 million is the second largest metropolitan area in the state of Florida after the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-West Palm Beach metro area.

  The largest city making up the Tampa Bay metro area is Tampa with approximately 320,000 residents, second is St. Petersburg with approximately 250,000 residents and Clearwater with approximately 110,000 residents. Other communities making up Tampa bay are Seminole, Tarpon Springs, Palm Harbor, East Lake, Oldsmar, Safety Harbor, Belleair, Bellair Bluffs and Leaman among others. Tampa Bay is also home to MacDill Air Force Base located on the large peninsula separating Hillsborough Bay from Old Tampa Bay, the two bays which are just north of the main body of water referred to as Tampa Bay.

  Tampa Bay's weather consists of bright sunny days with gentle gulf breezes. The average annual temperature in Tampa is a comfortable 72 degrees. Although the Tampa Bay area witnesses frequent thunderstorms rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico and is known as the "Lightning Capital of North America" its location on the central west coast of the Florida peninsula generally spares the bay area from direct hits by hurricanes.

Tampa Bay Beaches
 Tampa Beaches Tampa Bay has an abundance of fine beaches along the Gulf Coast including Clearwater Beach, Belleair Beach, Belleair Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, Redington Beach, Madeira Beach, Treasure Island and St. Pete Beach. The beaches are located on a series of 10 barrier islands connected by a stretch of road called Gulf Boulevard with bridges leading from one barrier island to the next.
  The beaches and adjoining network of waterways are lined with modern condominiums and are popular with vacationers from all over the world. It is not unusual to hear foreign accents and languages on Tampa Bay beaches which are as popular with foreign tourists as any beach resort area in South Florida. Clearwater Beach is perhaps the most popular of all the Tampa Bay beaches with large crowds year round.
