If you own a kayak, and everyone should, there are some great places to drop your boat in the water. The Upper Tampa Bay Park will let you launch your boat there for a small fee. From this location you can make your way around the shallow backwater estuaries of the bay and there are some great places to fish for trout, redfish and snook. Cypress Point park will give you access to the bay and the fish. The Courtney Campbell Causeway is a good place to see the open waters of the bay, but pay attention to the wind and tides, as a long paddle can turn into and extraordinarily long paddle.
