Cpt Matt has the perfect demeanor for a charter fishing guide - he was very patient with me and my son, extremely knowledgeable of local game species, and able to anticipate his fishing clients' needs. He was quite alert and put us onto tarpon and sharks early on our trip. While moving to another spot that afternoon - Matt spotted a school of fish and he quickly decided to put us onto them as well. My son boated a handsome jack crevalle that put up a stubborn fight. Many skippers would have passed right by them without even thinking twice. Things slowed down and Matt kept an eagle eye open for big game fish. We had hooked and lost several large sharks - finally, he got my son hooked up on a 80 lb blacktip that gave my boy a great workout. It was a beautiful fish! My son is still thumping his chest.

    I wanted to go out fishing but had no knowledge of fishing in this area. I called Captain Tim and he took me out and we had a great day! We had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about fishing in the gulf. I highly recommend calling Tim!

    About

    The Tampa Bay area has some of the world's premier fishing grounds, and the angling is excellent year round. Tampa Fishing Charters has phenomenal inshore fishing for tarpon, snook, red fish, trout, king fish, Spanish mackerel, flounder, sharks, black drum, sheepshead, and many other species, depending on the time of year. Fish inshore with us during the late spring and summer to feel the exhilaration of catching large tarpon on light tackle. These spectacular fish are known for their aerobatic, drag screaming runs. Massive amounts of snook, red fish, and trout inhabit our waters, and we fish for them when we are not fishing for tarpon. In the early spring, king fish and cobia migrate through the Tampa Bay area, and we target them when we can safely operate in the Gulf of Mexico. As you can see, Tampa Fishing Charters always has something special to offer. Family fishing is one of our fortes. Whether it is a birthday, vacation, or just a day to spend with your child, we are here to make your day enjoyable and peaceful. With the differing species surrounding the area, we are able to capture a child's attention by putting them on these fishes. Captain Rick frequently fishes with his four children who have been angling since they were old enough to walk. So, bring your young ones along to make a lasting memory on a relaxing fishing charter.

    Join Dave Loger, the only exclusive paddle-fly fishing guide on West Coast Florida. Dave will guide you every step of the way on some of the most pristine waters of South West Florida in Boca Grande, Placida, Englewood and Punta Gorda. As our name implies, your fly fishing adventure is propelled using only paddle or push pole power and its silent attributes. A fight with an inshore brawler like a redfish usually begins with an exciting hook-up in skinny water, then the "canoe sleigh ride". Snook blasting flies on the beach or underneath the dock lights at night are also an experience we specialize in. At the end of the fight, you have both hands full of fish and a picture to prove it!
