The Infiltrator premieres today starring Bryan Cranston (and Tampa Bay) and the reviews are great.

• Here are the top things to do today around Tampa Bay, including a concert by '90s greats Everclear, Sugar Ray, Lit and Sponge at Madeira Beach and a cult cinema night in Tampa.

• An app that brings anglers together to share photos of their catches has taken off in Florida. Read about how the app Fishbrain, launched in Sweden, of all places, has become so popular among the bait bucket crowd.
