Tampa Bay Trout fishing is a favorite among beginners and seasoned anglers. They feed strongly (steadily???) year round regardless of the water temperature; they are extremely prolific in the area and are great to eat. Most Bay area Sea Trout run from 12 to 23 inches; trophies are 24 to 32 inches and can weigh up to 10 pounds. There have been rumors of Sea Trout over 34 inches in the Bay. They make for fast action and are a lot of fun for kids and first time anglers. Sometimes it’s possible to catch hundreds and never pull the anchor.
