A great way to enjoy this year's holiday season is to do a little flounder fishing on Tampa Bay! The Tampa flounder bite has been awesome and only gets better as the weather continues to cool down. Shamrock Fishing Charters of Tampa Bay specialize in inshore flounder fishing.

On recent Tampa & St Petersburg flounder fishing charters we have been averaging over 30 flounder a trip. Most flounder have been under slot, but we always manage to bring home plenty for supper. These flat fish are mostly caught drift fishing deep water cuts or anchoring up and slow jigging sandy shell bottoms.

Baits of choice have been live sardines, shrimp and scented artificals rigged on a 1/8 oz jig head. The smaller baits produce big numbers, but the bigger baits produce bigger fish. Palm size pinfish and large chuncks of cut bait are more likely to land you the doormat size, Tampa Flounder you have been searching for.

Tampa Bay's bonus fish when flounder fishing have been trout, trout and more trout with redfish & snook to boot!

Good luck, good fishing and happy holidays!
