Some people think you need a boat to catch fish. Bet they’ve never waded along our shoreline, towing a bucket of shrimp through the shallow grass beds.
Walking through knee-deep water, casting as you go, is an easy and effective way to catch everything from flounder to snook. Wade fishing, as it’s sometimes called, is ideal for beginners and veterans alike, especially in an area such as St. Petersburg/Clearwater.
This peninsular paradise has dozens of great fishing spots that are ideal for the shore-bound angler. It doesn’t take much to get started. All you need to join in the fun is a tide chart, a pair of old tennis shoes and an inexpensive spinning rod.
