I will be in the Tampa area next week and I am planning on throwing a travel rod in the suitcase. What opportunities exist this time of year for a shore-bound angler? Also, are there any places in the general area (i.e. west central Florida) where one may stumble on some baby tarpon? thanks

Although I do a lot of fishing in FL I don't fish the Tampa area a lot (I live in Orlando). I would check on the FL Sportsman message board

Do google search of state parks and National parks in FL. You'll find a lot of good info and where to go. I'd rent a Yak and just go explore and have a ball

I was there earlier this week on business. I was driving on the highway right along the water and there was a massive school of something busting on bait and birds everywhere. Looked alot like the fall in the northeast. Almost drove the car off the road......
