Overview
More
During your day of fishing with Light Tackle Adventures, you can expect more than just exceptional fishing. You will find the experience to be a once in a lifetime one. The draw for most career Florida anglers is just as much about the connection to the area as much as it is about the fishing. You will find that connection during your day as well. Our Tampa fishing charters offer a unique look into the Florida fishery as a whole and into the ecology that makes up the world famous Florida estuaries and inshore flats. The inshore areas and backcountry of Tampa Bay are just as much part of the Everglades ecosystem as it's freshwater counterpart. It is truly all part of the inshore system that is truly why Florida is "The Fishing Capital of the World."
