One of the best parts of living in Hillsborough County is having convenient access to the largest open-water estuary in the state – the Tampa Bay.
Spanning over 400 square miles and connecting to the Gulf of Mexico, the bay is teeming with diverse marine life, making it one of the best places for fishing in the United States.
At Lennar’s Little Harbor community in South Hillsborough County, all residents have convenient access to the Tampa Bay. With luxury waterfront homes, the community offers the ideal lifestyle for experienced anglers as well as those who occasionally enjoy a relaxing day of fishing.
If fishing and boating are big parts of your family’s life, here’s what you need to know about Little Harbor:
The Tampa Bay is known for great fishing.
From its shallow coastal reefs and mangroves to deep, open waters, the Tampa Bay serves as a habitat for hundreds of marine species. Anglers come from all over the world to fish for sport, and can hook a wide variety of fish such as tarpon, snook, redfish, pompano, snapper and grouper.
Little Harbor also has access to brackish creeks and rivers where marine life thrives. And for those looking to explore waters beyond the bay, the harbor provides access to a channel that leads to the Gulf of Mexico, which is only about 10 miles out.
Little Harbor homes have deep water access for docks and boat lifts.
Many of the homes in Little Harbor are built along an inlet of Tampa Bay, giving them a waterfront view. The waterfront homes are situated on a deep-water canal that can accommodate a dock and boatlift, and the canals are deep and wide enough to accommodate larger vessels.
With your boat docked right behind your home, a fishing trip is always an easy option.
Not a boat owner? Fish from your private dock or the beach.
Boat owners aren’t the only ones who can enjoy fishing in Little Harbor. With the option to build a deep water dock, homeowners can cast a line from their own backyards. The area’s canals and creeks are also great for fishing from kayaks and canoes.
Little Harbor homeowners are also just the down the road from sandy beaches near the Inn at Little Harbor that provide yet another way to enjoy a day of fishing.
