RECENT TAMPA FISHING CHARTERS

Tampa Bay offers some great spots to fish. With great weather and warm waters year round, you have a great opportunity to see a lot of different species native to the Tampa Bay area. Take a look at some of our most recent Tampa Fishing Charters.

Matt, and his sons Noah and Zach came from Orlando to fish with me again.. The first trip we absolutely crused the snook. Second trip was a struggle all day and only caught a few fish but did get Matt a over slot redfish. Noah and Zach never caught a redfish and really wanted to catch one. Today didn't start out how I hoped. The wind was ripping, it was cloudy, and the water was dirty. For the first three hours nothing, I said we need to go back to where we started because I thought I saw fish earlier, but again it was too hard to see early in the morning. My intuition paid off. As soon as we got to where I thought I saw them they were everywhere. First fish was 34 inches and ended the day with the third triple header. A 35 inch, 34 inch and 33.5 inch triple. Total of 20 redfish today and all over slot. Www.tampafloridafishingguide.com ...

Fun morning with Luke and Kelly from Colorado. Action was non-stop first thing this morning. Doubles on redfish. Lots of snook and big trout. Middle of the day was a grind catching a few fish here and there, but the end was insane with frothing schools of jacks. Caught half a dozen drag screamers to end the day. Fishing is excellent right now. Www.tampafloridafishingguide.com ...

My client today was amazing. Such a good attitude. Didn't care if we caught fish or not. He said he had only caught a snook before, but he wanted to catch redfish, trout, a shark, and whatever else we could catch. First three fish were a trout, redfish and a bonnethead followed up by a snook. Bite was a little slow with this steady outgoing tide so we headed to another spot to grind it out. Put two 29 inch redfish in the boat as well a a jack and some snook. Now the tide was really low. I said let's go back to the flat and throw some artificial, because he kept talking about how he likes to fish artificial. We get on the flat with the wind ripping and here come the jacks. After blasting half a dozen we continue to look for reds. We sight casted to tailing redfish putting three more in the boat and he also caught 4 more snook. We were talking as to why he booked me and he said I filled out a dozen contact froms and I was the only one who called him back and I did it withing 30 seconds of him filling out the forms. He was blown away. Not only was I the only one to call him back, but none of the others guides tried to contact him and he has been booked for over a week. So I load up my and start to leave the boat ramp. I noticed a gentlemen trying to change his tire. Pull up to the light and I hear ping ping ping, he had thrown the tire iron.. I look in my rear view mirror and I see this guy totally defeated. I backed up made a u turn and proceeded to change his tire for him. When I got out I could see his hands were all busted up and bleeding. Poor guy was having a rough time. He was a deaf gentleman and kept gesturing thank you in sign language over and over again. I said you're welcome and went on my way. Fishing is awesome right now and these low tides are making it excellent for artificial, my favorite! Book your trip today! ...

Stefanie joined me today for a day on the water. Her biggest fish prior to this outing was a tiny little fish. Started her off with a 29 inch redfish. Followed that up with 8 more reds and a new personal best at 31.5 inches. Second spot was a bust but it was worth checking. Was just killing time for the tide to start coming. On the way back we ran into a hot tub floating in the bay, YESI said hot tub! No triple tail on it unfortunately. The next spot we caught just as many redfish as well as some snook and a trout to complete the slam. Best part not another boat around us. Www.tampafloridafishingguide.com Book your trip today!! ...

Went out solo this morning. Tried to find bait and only got some pinfish, so I decided to throw artificial. Landed 2 trout around 20 inches and 1 red about 26 inches. Then I happened to find some bait laid up. 2 casts and I was loaded up. Found some reds and put two more in the boat. Hit another spot just to look and caught a 24 inch red and a massive bonnethead on a gold spoon. Made the run to a spot I felt was going to be good. It was last year at this time. Caught 2 20 inch trout, 2 small snook, a 31 inch snook. Then the redfish bite was on..one after another. I would hook a fish and toss out another bait..Before I could get that fish in I was hooked up again. Did this at least 20 to 25 times. By myself. My hands are tore up, and my biceps are sore. Great day on the water. Largest red was pushing 32 inches. If you want to get out on the water now is a great time. Best part I didn't have one boat around me all day!!!

Fun morning with Andy Hartman. I haven't been able to get out much due to home schooling my 5 year old. Avoided the crowds and put together a decent day. Would have been awesome but we lost half a dozen reds. At one point we doubled up on tailing redfish and lost them both. Book your trip today. www.tampafloridafishingguide.com ...

Some nice reds, snook, and snapper today. Fishing has been pretty solid slinging live bait, but I'm ready to toss some artificial and fish with nobody around!! If you'd like to throw artificial give me a call. There are not a lot of guides who primarily fish artificial. I can only think of one off-hand. www.tampafloridafishingguide.com ...

Grayson and Steve joined me today for awesome action. Over 20 snook, a few mangroves snapper, and 6 nice reds. Biggest reds were 30.5 and 31.5 inches. Lost 3 other slobs as well. Fishing is great right now. Grayson even junped into the water at the ramp to help a fellow guide whose boat was taking on water, and his dad help crank the boat onto the trailer. Just all around a postive day and its trips like this that make guiding such a blessing. www.tampafloridafishingguide.com ...

Bill and Eileen came back to fish with me today. Started the morning working some tarpon and could only get one to eat. Of course it was a 80 pounder and hit the small rod. After a few good jumps it broke the line. Followed that up catching a lot of little snook and 4 nice reds. Its a grind out there, but there are some fish around if you know where to look. www.tampafloridafishingguide.com ...
