St Petersburg Fishing for All Ages

By Published On: November 10th, 2020

Tampa Bay Offers Many Locations To Fish

Published on 11/10/20: For many, fishing is certainly a major perk to living in the Tampa Bay area. While some use boats, it’s amazing the fish you’ll find simply off seawalls, docks, piers and other easily accessible areas around St Pete. Pretty much everywhere you look along the shoreline you’ll have a fishing opportunity. Between Snook, Sea Trout, Sheepshead, Snapper, and many others, there are endless opportunities for all ages to enjoy.

Some do if for simply the sport (catch n release) while others keep the legal fish for a delicious meal (and the sport). Whatever the goal, fishing in the St Pete area is extremely easy when you live here! There are so many seawalls around town and other fishing areas. I’ll try to put together a full list one day, but just an activity to keep on your radar with kids. You can buy a kids rod and some shrimp at most any bait store. Total cost should be less than $25 for a day of St Pete Fishing.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
