Fishing, Tampa: 5 reviews and 21 photos

Captain Dave is a grizzled veteran Tampa charter fisherman, and while he may be gruff at times, he knows his stuff. For $600, four of us fished for nearly eight hours, catching just a few edible fishing including flounder.

We began our day at O'Neil's Marina in St. Pete next to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge at sunrise. Our trip started by passing under the huge bridge, and fishing for about 30 minutes in the sheltered areas of Tampa Bay. When we didn't catch much here, we cruised out to Fort DeSoto and fished several secluded spots. Around 1200 we swung into Pass-a-Grille for lunch at a dockside restaurant. After lunch we fished a bit in the Intracoastal waterway. We didn't catch a lot of fish, but we took home a few fish,including a flounder. Capt Dave professionally fileted the fish and packed them in ice for our trip home.
