Ready to go fishing?  Let Capt. Bucky be your Tampa Bay Area Florida fishing guide in and around the waters of Clearwater, St. Pete, Palm Harbor and Tarpon Springs. If you are interested in fishing farther to the east of Central Florida in Mosquito Lagoon please let me know, and I will try to set you up with some of the amazing guides I have met over the last 10 years. Capt. Bucky is USCG licensed and insured.

For more information about Fishing Charter rates, please see our Rates page. We can accommodate 1-3 passengers. Weather in Florida is always a factor so please anticipate the ability to be flexible due to poor weather conditions. In case of a cancellation, your deposit will be refunded or we will reschedule for a later date.


Capt. Bucky will be taking you fishing on his 17 foot Mitzi Skiff. This boat can comfortably fish three passengers, the Captain, and still be able to float in less than a foot of water. That means that we can reach fish where others dare not venture!! A Yeti Tundra 65 cooler has been mounted on the bow to act as a casting platform as well as a fish cooler. Under the center console seat has a small cooler. The cooler has enough room for drinks and food, but please don’t bring an over abundance. Enough water bottles and ice will be provided. Drinking alcohol is acceptable within reason. Capt. Bucky has no problem with someone having a drink or two, but by no means is anyone going to get drunk on his vessel. Safety is his number one concern and he will terminate the charter if the passenger(s) become unsafe or unruly!!!


The Captain will provide all tackle, bait, photos, and enough water for everyone. All photos taken will be emailed to clients as soon as possible. Capt. Bucky is a conservationist and believes in catch and release. On occasion he will gladly clean and bag your catch per request, however he is not here to fill your freezer to ensure we can catch fish time after time in this amazing place he calls home.


Passengers should bring:

* Hat and Polarized Sunglasses (brown lenses if possible)
* Sunscreen and Bug Spray
* Non-marking soles on your shoes!!!
* Any food and snacks and beverages (no glass bottles)

The fishing in and around Tampa Bay offers some of Florida’s finest fishing. Captain Bucky’s availability can quickly fill up, so don’t hesitate and book a trip today. 407-977-7650.
