Fish the Bridges around Old Tampa Bay

Excursion Guide Tampa - A Day in the Bay

Just north of our Tampa club are some of the best bridges in the area to toss a line and catch a local delicacy. These structures provide fish much-needed shade, good ambush points with current dynamics and lots of forage species. More or less an emergent reef, a bridge gives anglers a clear target to fish and the ability to move up or down a few pilings to locate the bite.

Position yourself according to the water’s direction. You may want to sling a bait under the bridge and let it drift back out. Other times, the current will help you position a bait at just the right point. Also, you can’t go wrong by working near baitfish schools. When food abounds, someone with an appetite will find it, so work your baits into the natural food chain.

Common targets around the Old Bay area include tarpon, cobia, pompano, snapper, grouper, sheepshead, redfish, black drum, speckled trout and snook. Spanish mackerel and bluefish make seasonal appearances, and ladyfish are always a possibility.

End the Day at Hula Bay
