  • Good place to fish. Def some big sharks and lots of small toothy critters. Hooked into something big but couldn't control it and bit through my steel leader line. Pro tip.. Make sure to have a gaf hook and a good long net because it's nearly impossible to 'land' a fish 🐠 without it having to hoist the fish vertically up. Unless you walk through the entire bridge towards the beginning of the bridge and good luck doing that with any decent size fish on the line
  • Love the skyway. $1.50 to cross one way and the best views you'll get of Tampa Bay. Rest areas on either side of the bridge is a good photo op as well. Usually some wind surfers having a good time around the bridge. Old bridge is a fishing pier and great place to wet a line. We usually take family and friends visiting us over the bridge just for the view.
