Most in-shore fishing is done from small boats, but some are also done from the docks or shore.
In-shore fishing can be practiced in a variety of different locations, including saltwater and freshwater. The term "in-shore" is used to describe fishing that is carried out near the shoreline, as opposed to offshore fishing, which takes place at a greater distance from land. In-shore fishing is defined by its accessibility and proximity to land.
The majority of in-shore fishing takes place within sight of the shoreline, making it easy to spot your prey and easier to land your catch. The distance from shore can vary depending on the location but is typically between one and three miles.
Inshore fishing can be an enjoyable experience for anglers of all ages and skill levels, and it is a great way to spend a day on the water with friends and family.
In-shore fishing is especially popular with beginner anglers because it is relatively easy to learn and does not require a lot of expensive equipment. The most common type of in-shore fishing is done from a boat, but you can also fish from the docks or shore, making it a great option for anglers who do not have access to a fishing boat.
The best time of year for in-shore fishing in the Tampa Bay area is from late September through May. Of course, this can vary depending on the species you are targeting, so it’s always a good idea to check with your captain when booking!
