FLORIDA OFFSHORE FISHING: RUMFISH CHARTERS
Year-round fishing adventures
Plan your trip with the help of the Outfitter Crew and get ready for a rod-bending, adrenaline-pumping experience with RumFish Charters. Tampa Bay’s year-round warm weather and warm waters make for one of Florida’s hottest fishing destinations with different species heating up the action seasonally.
Kingfish make their run through the area just off the beaches twice a year, and you never know when a stray wahoo may hit that trolling line. Grouper, snapper, permit and amberjack love to hang around the hard bottom of artificial reefs and Gulf wrecks, and you can usually pick up an early morning cobia around one of the buoys or markers.
Know Before You Go:
We take fishing regulations seriously because we’re committed to conservation. It's important to know and respect the local fishing regulations to help protect and sustain the fisheries. At best, it’s good sportsmanship. At worst, being unfamiliar is a prescription for fines and penalties. We must all do our small part in protecting the fisheries for future generations to come. Please learn more about Florida fishing regulations and how to acquire your fishing license.
