What's hot: Spanish mackerel have been heating up drag systems all over Tampa Bay. These tasty speed demons have inundated our area, and they make for the best and easiest "dinner fishing" experience right now.
Tips: The kids will soon be out of school for the summer, so it is a great time to seize a fishing opportunity. A good catch of mackerel can make a kid's day. Areas in the open bay are usually the best place to find mackerel. But on a recent trip to downtown Tampa, we nailed numerous fish just south of Tampa General Hospital. Big tarpon were rolling right in front of the convention center. And another boat caught a cobia right by the Florida Aquarium.
