Any idea what part of Tampa you'll be in? If you want to barhop, I'd suggest Ybor city. There's a bunch of bullshit dance clubs and what not there, but also some decent divey bars, and delicious pizza.
Cigar City Brewery is worth checking out, too. They have a nice little bar, and make a decent beer. (http://www.cigarcitybrewing.com/
As for fishing, I don't do it too often, but I'd suggest the Skyway bridge (http://skywaypiers.com/
). I think they're open 24/7, and it's easy enough to flask some booze.
