This is a spectacular approach. Flights from the midwest to Tampa /St Petersburg fly along the Florida coast from the Big Bend. They enter the pattern over Tarpon Springs, continue south over Tampa Bay over the Pinellas County bay coast line, and then turn to cross over the bay just north of St Petersburg. On various flights, I have seen, in the water, in season, schools of bay tarpon, manatees and pods of bait from about 2k feet. I was once treated to a flight of white pelicans coming into the bay in front of a winter storm.
