Just moved to Tampa from Texas. Live downtown near Davis island. Just picked up a little 15’ skiff. Not looking for any spots just a starting point. Would also love to fish with some new folks. Pretty avid flyfisher man but won’t hesitate to pick up a spinning rod. Will travel if necessary.

Here’s the new skiff. Would like to eventually trade the 90 for a lighter motor so if you know anyone. Also heavily debating putting a poling platform on it.

I'm going to be fishing out of Simmons or cockroach in the next couple of weeks and I'm already looking for someone to give me a valium so I don't kill anybody.

I fished bear beer can island, and got a few small snook. In the summer I could see there being more around.

Go to the power plant in Apollo if your brave. When the water warms up snook and reds chill in there. Beware of Paul Blart tho. He’ll get his megaphone and yell at ya ;)
