Lots of places and opportunities to wet a line in Hillsborough County

Looking for something fun to do outdoors? Go fishing.

Hillsborough County has many places for anglers to test their skill and luck, from saltwater estuaries, bayous, and Tampa Bay to freshwater lakes, rivers, and creeks. Get a Florida fishing license, grab a pole and bait, and find a place where you think they're biting.

Recreational anglers, whether Florida residents or not, won't need a license to fish for saltwater species on June 5 and 6. Nor is a license required to fish freshwater bodies the following weekend, June 12 and 13. Florida's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission provides these license free days and a few others during the year to encourage people to try the sport.

An annual saltwater or freshwater fishing license is $17 for Florida residents and $47 for non-residents. Shoreline fishing is free for residents. Florida residents 65 or older do not need a fishing license if they have a Florida driver's license or identification card. Teens and children under age 16 do not need a fishing license. You are able to add some additional fishing privileges (crab, etc.) free to your license by visiting the FWC (Florida Wildlife Commission) website. They are also additional fees for specialty fishing privileges which can be viewed on the website. 

Beginning June 1, normal regulations resume for keeping redfish, snook, and spotted seatrout in the Tampa Bay area. The fisheries had been off-limits to replenish the species after a red tide killed many fish in 2018.

Bodies of water are abundant throughout Hillsborough County, and fish are available for anglers eager to pull or reel them in. Get out there, wet a line, and good luck!
