You don’t need a boat to have fun urban bass fishing; there are plenty of public waters in Clearwater, Tampa and the surrounding areas that are home to large numbers of bass. Must-fish spots for city fishing are bridges, culverts, incoming waterflow areas, places with overhead coverage, docks, lily pads and grassy areas. Stay ready by keeping a kit in your car that includes a two-piece rod, small backpack filled with weedless and topwater lures, lightweight jigs and closed-toe shoes. Feeling stressed, break up the work day by casting a line at lunch or hit that fishing hole on the way home from work.
