Clearwater, Florida is nestled in between Old Tampa Bay and Florida’s Gulf Coast out towards Clearwater Beach. This allows anglers a multitude of inshore and nearshore fishing opportunities for all of the area’s top game fish species. On the inshore side there are vast grass flats, mangrove systems, and oyster bars that attract species such as redfish, sea trout, and snook. On the ocean side there are other inshore opportunities that will allow you to fish intercoastal waterways as well as many of the same inshore structures that are found in Old Tampa Bay.
On the beach side, nearshore opportunities for migrating tarpon, spanish mackerel, snapper, and grouper are all present. This combination makes Clearwater one of the best fishing destinations in the state. We offer guided fishing trips into Clearwater all year long. Though some species may be seasonal, there is always something biting here!
