While most of the country is covered in snow, Tampa Bay is seeing temperatures in the mid 70’s. With such great weather and so many things to do Tampa makes for a great place to take your Spring vacation. You can plan to see one of the many spring training games happening around the bay area, check out the awesome theme parks, and best of all get out and doing some fishing with Steady Action Fishing Charters on Tampa Bay. As for fishing, it doesn’t get any better than right now on the flats as Snook, Redfish, and Trout start to move onto the flats. Fishing is very productive and consistant with non stop light tackle action. Wheather you’re a novice or expert fisherman we can help you catch that trophy fish you have been dreaming about. Just give us a call at 813-727-9890 and we will answer any questions that you might have.
If you like mild weather and sunny days mixed with some great fishing then Tampa Bay is the place for you. While most of the country is shoveling snow and ice we have been catching nice Trout, Redfish, and Cobia this time of year. Although we do get some cold days they typically don’t hang around and temperatures quickly climb back into the mid 70s and fishing picks right back up. It’s a great time to visit Tampa and book a charter.
Trout is our highlighted species this time of year with just about every grass flat holding tons of Trout. On charters we are targeting Sea Trout with Zman soft plastic artificial baits. If you are a novice and have always wanted to throw artificial baits then Trout is a great fish to target. You will catch a ton of fish without having to be very technical. We are also having a good bit of success using live shrimp suspended under a Cajun Thunder float. Both have been very successful tactics when fishing for Trout.
Redfish is also a good species to target this time of year and while most of a bit smaller catching Reds on artificial baits is an awesome experience. With water clarity being great this time of year sight cast for Reds on the flats as small schools of fish move into the potholes around the back country. If water temperatures are lower from a passing cold front then we might opt to using a free lined live shrimp. This is also a great technique for reds as they are naturally bottom feeders. Cooler water temperatures make redfish fight that much harder.
Sheep head (AKA Convict fish) is another species that is a great fish to catch. They are also one of the most overlooked fish but they should not be as they are one of the best fighting and tasting inshore fish. Using #1 Daiichi circle hook tipped with a small shrimp will be the best way to catch Sheep head. They are structure oriented fish so any type of wreck or rocky ledge will be holding the big breeders. You will have a blast catching Sheep head.
If you are visiting the Tampa area for the winter and would like to get out and do some fishing, give us a call at 813-727-9890 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org I promise you it will be worth the trip. Tight Lines!
Well it’s the end of the year and everyone is busy with shopping for Christmas, cooking for Thanksgiving, or Traveling to see relatives. While schedules can be pushed for time remembers you always have to make a little time for fishing. I promise you that if you can set some time aside to book a fishing charter in Tampa Bay, it will be worth your while. Here is a little sneak peak of what you can expect when you get out with Steady Action Fishing Charters.
November and December offer some of the best light tackle inshore fishing Tampa Bay has to offer and is only minutes from the dock. This means lots of fishing and very little riding. Snook are really starting to rebound from the 2010 fish kill and we are catching plenty of BIG fish as they migrate towards the rivers to prepare for the heart of winter. Light tackle spinning gear is our tackle do choice which means most anybody from novice to expert can fish.
Trout and Redfish also continue to be great this time of year. Just about every flat on Tampa Bay holds good numbers of both species and are a blast to catch. Most targeted areas are the miles of mangroves that filter Tampa Bay. These areas are like a nursery for most of our Game fish in the area and make for some great fishing. If you are in the area for the holidays or just a local needing a break from your fast pace daily activities then you need to get out and enjoy some of the best fishing of the year. It’s an email or phone call away. 813-727-9890 or email@example.com.

If you are looking to get out and enjoy some of the best inshore fishing Tampa Bay has to offer no other time is better. On a day out on the water in Tampa Bay you can catch plenty of Snook,Redfish, and Trout just about every day this time of year as most of the gamefish move into the shallow water. This time of the year is a great time to fish the flats as fish feed frequently before our winter approaches. Most fishing is done in water depths of 2 foot or less and we mostly use light tackle spinning gear. This means that you can have a get day on the water and catch fish no matter what your angling level is.

Being a native to the Tampa Florida area I can tell you that fishing is a way of life here. I have been blessed with the opportunity to go fishing just about any time I wanted for most of my life. Having a boat before I could drive and a fishing rod in hand before I could walk just made it a way of life. Now making a living and fishing as a profession in Tampa Bay, I often look back to the times fishing as a kid to remind me just how fun it was and this often takes the business side away just for a few moments . As most of you know we often do this as adults and those things that we did as a youngster that we thought were not a big deal end up staying with us for our entire lives. For me fishing has always been the first thought from the past and some of the best memories in my life. Although I never had the opportunity or money to fish with a charter when I was a kid, I still had some great times on the water. I can tell you that learning tips, techniques, and how to catch fish was very difficult with a huge learning curve. I did a lot more fishing and a lot less catching, but I still would not trade the memories for anything as that drives me to this day. So weather its booking a Tampa fishing charter with me on Tampa Bay, taking you little one to the Sunshine Skyways Fishing Pier , or just dropping a line off the seawall to see what you get one of Tampa bay’s long bridges, the key is to just get out on the water and take your family fishing. Trust me when I tell you, they will thank you years down the road. If you are coming to Tampa Bay and would like to have a family fun day on the water and see the beautiful sites of our Bay and miles of Backcountry waters, just drop us a call at 813-727-9890 or email email@example.com. We offer a fun filled fishing charter with all licensing and tackle include. Tight lines
Fall fishing for Tampa Bay is just around the corner, and with cooler weather a month or so away Tampa Fishing will be as good as it gets. If you are planning a trip to the Tampa area whether it’s fishing or business you should look at taking a little time to do some Tampa Flats Fishing. The Tampa Bay fishery is one of the best in the state and fall fishing is one of the best when it comes to inshore. Water temperatures should drop to the mid to 70 degree mark and that opens up endless possibilities for fishing in Tampa Bay. Snook fishing on the flats should be great as we head into the latter part of the year, redfishing are already schooling up by the hundreds on the flats in search of all types of crustaceans, Trout LOVE the cooler water that Tampa flats fishing offers and they also make for a great table fair. If this has not convinced you to book a Tampa fishing charter maybe we could encourage you with some great nearshore fishing in the Gulf Of Mexico. Kingfish make their big run up the coast by the thousands and can be caught just off the beaches within 10 miles. Grouper, Mackerel and many others species can all be targeted and caught on you next fishing trip to Tampa Bay. Dont wait to book you next inshore fishing charter just call us direct 813-727-9890 or shoot us and email to ask any questions firstname.lastname@example.org. Tight Lines!

Steady Action Fishing Charters
August is the start of some of the best Redfishing of the year as big schools of fish start to make there way into Tampa Bay and its surrounding flats. Reds typically range in size from 22 to 40 inches and this time of year you can expect to catch the bigger breeder fish as they move to shallow water. The size of schools can range from 10 to 300 fish and when you find these schools this time of year they are ready to eat. Tampa Bay offers a variety of gamefish to target but I would have to say that Redfish is one of my favorite fish to catch, from young kids to adults its a lot of fun to catch Reds. Since we are fishing shallow water I typically use light spinning tackle so it makes for a great fight. When booking your next fishing remeber that all fishing license and tackle is included which make for a great stress free vacation. While fishing should be number one on your list for things to do, Tampa and St Petersburg offer a lot of activites and events as well. While your in town check out the Brews and Bites Food Truck Rally offering great food and entertainment. This event will be at the Tampa Convention Center in August among other great things to check out. But most importantly is to book your charter today just shoot us and email to get the details and availability email@example.com or call us at 813-727-9890. Tightlines!
Its July and one thing is for sure its hot. This time of year it doesn’t take long to break a sweat while fishing on Tampa Bay, but don’t let that hold you back from getting on the water because Tampa flats fishing has been on fire. The key has been to get an early start and beat the heat. If you get out early you can experience some great fishing for Red fish roaming the flats at sun up. Snook laying on the banks eating everything in sight as they get ready to spawn. Mangrove Snapper invade Tampa Bay as big schools hit just about every wreck and reef around. Grouper season has opened and the bay offers some of the best shallow water Grouper around. Don’t forget about the almighty Silver King (Tarpon) as our resident fish start to move int0 the bay. Weather you are novice or a skilled angler Steady Action Fishing Charters is your one stop shop when it comes to fishing in Tampa Bay. If you are in town make fishing one of your things to while visiting the beautiful city of Tampa Bay. Have more questions? Just give us a call 813-727-9890 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well its almost here, Tarpon Season. Starting during the months of May and June Tarpon make there way up the coast and invade the beaches and passes of Tampa Bay. For those of you that have not caught or hooked a Tarpon you are missing out on a fight of a lifetime. Sizes range from 50 to 200lbs and the battle of the Silver King can exceed 2 hours leaving both the fish and you laying sideways gasping for air. Tarpon fishing is more than just a fish being caught, its an experience of a lifetime. From the beautiful scenery of Florida’s top rated beaches to the silver beast breaching the water as they slowly make there way down the beaches around St Petersburg and Tampa Bay. May and June are Prime months for Tarpon but there is limited availability so booking your Tarpon trip a head of time will ensure your date for a trip. While in the area its always a great idea to get the full experience of the area as Tampa Bay and St Peterburg offers a variety of things to keep you busy during your stay. Places like Busch Gardens for a zoo and Theme Park, or maybe check out the Florida Aquarium to see some of the same fish you will catch on your fishing trip. Maybe you are in town for business for the week and have an afternoon free. We offer both morning and afternoon fishing trips. From novice to expert we can help you all catch fish.

Since 2009 Snook have taken a back seat as a targeted species on Tampa Bay due to the extreme cold weather that hit us during January of 2010. Since then the Florida Conservation Commission “FWC” has stepped up and taken precautions to help the stocks rebuild by closing the season for harvest. Snook have started on a slow but positive recovery and this spring I have noticed more fish in areas than last year.
March brings some of the best Snook fishing the area has to offer. Most fish are making their way out from the rivers and creeks where they have been hiding from the cold temperatures of January and February. With such a mild winter this year we never really saw a big drop in water temperature. This has made for an early spring and fish are moving out early. I’m seeing good numbers around the oyster bars and potholes on just about every area on the south part of the bay.
Catching them can be a bit tough but with a little bit of effort and a lot of Greenbacks you can find yourself withquite the day of fishing. I have been using free lined bait or a greenback suspended under a popping cork depending on water depth. Using a 1/0 Daiichicircle hook will work great with the size of bait that is running in the bay right now and I have been using 25 lb. Ohero fluorocarbon for leader line. Throwing a few chum baits will help entice the bite and get them in a feeding frenzy. Fishing around the tides has also increased the catch. Fishing oyster bars with deeper potholes around them and good moving water has been the key As the water warms look for these same fish to start shifting towards the outer flats and spoil islands.
If you are in the area and have some extra time after your fishing trips you should stop in and watch some of th spring training games in the Tampa Area. Teams like the Tampa Yankees, Pirates,Philadelphia Phillies just to name a few. If that’s not enough for you and on you way to Tampa International Airport stop in and see some of Florida’s best beaches! Tight lines.
