Pinellas County, Florida – Lake Freshwater Fishing and Boating

Freshwater Boating on Lakes in Pinellas County:

Pinellas County, Florida  has three popular FRESHWATER public boat docks and boat launching facilities along Lake Tarpon and Lake Seminole for those Pinellas County area residents that enjoy fishing, waterskiing, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing and more…

About Lake Tarpon: We are blessed to have Lake Tarpon located in Northern Pinellas County. This large popular freshwater lake is 5 miles long and one mile wide and is 8 to 12 feet deep on average so it can handle recreational boating of powerboats, jet skis as well as canoes and kayaks.

About Lake Seminole: This a large freshwater lake is found in the center of Pinellas County – close to the cities of Largo, Seminole and Pinellas Park.

Lake Seminole was actually created in the 1940s and has been used extensively since then for boating, skiing and fishing.
