Hotel for Boating & Fishing in Tampa Bay
It’s no exaggeration to say that Tampa Bay offers some of the very finest sport fishing in the country. This gigantic estuary is a hugely important gamefish nursery, and when you consider the spread of waters—from tucked-away inlets and feeder creeks to the deep blue of the Gulf—it’s not hard to wrap your head around the whopping tally of a couple hundred or so native species, among them some of the most sought-after saltwater quarry in the world.
And it’s not just anglers, of course, who enjoy prowling the shimmering expanse of Tampa Bay: Boaters of all stripes find a genuine paradise here.
With accommodations at the Westshore Grand, just a stone’s throw from the shores of Old Tampa Bay, you’ve got a magnificent (and decked-out) setup for leaving the landlubbers behind, whether you’re casting for legendary gamefish or just catching the breeze for a leisurely sunset sail.
Fishing on Tampa Bay
The roster of native gamefish in the greater Tampa Bay ecosystem is like an all-star team: tarpon, spotted sea-trout, red drum, Spanish mackerel, grouper, snook, pompano, Gulf flounder, and so many other coveted varieties.
There aren’t many greater thrills in fishing than doing battle with that high-flying, muscle-bound “silver king” known as the tarpon, which abounds in our local waters. Specimens beyond 200 pounds aren’t unheard of.
From laidback shore fishing to offshore expeditions, you’ve got rich saltwater-angling pickings all year round with a base camp at the Westshore Grand. You’ve got your choice of fishing guides and charters: some of the best in the business, which only makes sense given the caliber of these Gulf Coast fishing grounds.
