Popular species of Inshore Fish

in our stretch of the Gulf of Mexico

Tarpon

Tarpon have a distinctive dorsal fin ray that extends into a long filament, a large upward pointing mouth and very large scales.Tarpon can gulp air and remove oxygen by means of lung-like tissue near their swim bladder. This "rolling" effect is one way to spot tarpon. Anglers catch tarpon that weigh 40 to 150 pounds on average.

 

Snook

Snook are found from central Florida south, usually inshore in coastal and brackish waters.  They are also common along mangrove shorelines, seawalls, and bridges. They take a large variety of lures based on water conditions. Beware of the snook’s razor-sharp gill covers! Snook make excellent table fare.

Tampa Bay area has a recovering number of this species. 

 

 

Drum

Red drum are one of Florida’s most popular sport fish and the state’s most widespread estuarine fish. Floating a live shrimp under a popping cork is a good way to fish for redfish. They also chase crabs, mullet, pinfish and killifish (mud minnows). Casting soft-bodied jigs, spoons and even top-water plugs will catch the attention of these powerful estuarine musicians. 

 

Trout
