Manatee River fishing covers a 60 mile area in south west Florida.  The lower part of the river which lies on the southern edge of Tampa Bay is an estuary. The Bulkhead, which is from the Green Bridge to the mouth of the river, is a terrific mixed bag of fishing.  There are docks, grass flats, creeks, and bayous which provide great fishing on all sides. With all the various structure types, snook, redfish, and trout all call this area home. The banks of the Manatee River provide great cover on windy days, and the scenery is breathtaking.
