Hey all,

 My name is Bob, I'm a fishaholic. I relocated here a few months ago due to work and still have yet to figure out what the heck I'm doing, fishing wise. I originally hale from the Northeast NH/MA areas and I'm an avid tuna fisherman. I live in Apollo Beach (renting) and keep my boat (22' Sea Hunt, Yami F150, T-top, Lowrance HDS7 Gen2, Furuno radar, outriggers) on the trailer in Palmetto for the time being.

Welcome - to get a leg up on fishing tactics here in the Tampa area check out our video page.  Some of the best local guides have spoken at our meetings.

CA Richardson will be a speaker at our next meeting on 9/5.  He's more than a local guide, he's a local legend.

I would break down our fishing into two categories:

  • inshore 
  • offshore
Sounds like you already have a offshore rig; personally I kayak for inshore fishing, but a bunch of folks prefer using a powerboat.  Sometimes I throw the kayak in the powerboat...anyway if you want to hear about Redfish fishing in the area I would highly suggest showing up at the next meeting.

Consider going to club meetings and Capt. Mike Anderson's Gator Ford conversations. The next one is on the 13th (2nd Tues./ month). About 1 hr of seminar with
?'s/answer. Go down stairs for Hungry Harry's B-B-Q and then finish the seminar. I find your learning curve will be shortened because you'll learn a lot of what not to do.
To get a better idea of the local inshore consider using a guide. Get 2 others to lessen the cost, let the guide know that you're desire is to learn the area and the methods to become more successful. Again, shortens the time it takes for you to get more from your time on the water. John's suggestion on the videos is a great way to listen to specific ?'s and answers from the best the south shore has to offer. Remember these gentlemen make a living by knowing when, where and how to increase the odds of catching fish.
Hope to see you at Gator Ford on Tues. It's on the N side of I4 at exit 10. Consider making the B-B-Q your dinner, greens, baked beans, pork, chicken and other items are all great.
