We went on a four hour charter with captain Anthony. We hit up some docks and a reef in the bay. Caught so many sheepshead! Captain Anthony was awesome to fish with. He was very kind and easy to talk …to. Due to the cold snap we had to reschedule our trip but they were awesome about finding a day that was best for us and worked for them. Highly recommend using these guys for a charter. See More

As the weather gets warmer, sometimes it’s just more fun to wade fish. Grab a pair of sneakers and light fishing tackle, then cast into the channels that cut through lush seagrass beds. Be careful not to trample through seagrasses though – they’re critical habitat for almost nearly every fish in Tampa Bay.

Capt. Anthony booked our afternoon trip on short notice. When we arrived at the ramp 30 minutes early, he was waiting for us and we left the dock immediately for the fishing area. While the fishing …wasn’t hot and heavy for the most part, at no fault of Capt. Anthony. We still managed to catch several snook, a couple sharks and a few catfish. We chose to fish for snook in lieu of bottom fish, which he told us in advance would to more fish being caught, but maybe not the size we were after. Capt. Anthony was very accommodating and made the trip really fun. I will definitly use him again if we come back to the Tampa area. Thanks Anthony and Joey for the good time. See More

With the increase of fishing technology and the amount of people in the Tampa fishing community how are our fisheries responding? I come from 4 generations of professional fishermen. As far as I can determine, my family started fishing the Tampa Bay area in the 1920s. Through many conversations with the old timers in my family, I have been able to grasp a picture of our ecosystem that is unique to most other fisherman. The Tampa Bay fishery took a gradual turn for the worst in the 1970s and has been in a downward spiral ever since. As I commonly explain on Tampa Fishing Charters , three things have adversely affected our fishery; 1.The Army Corps of Engineers Effects on Tampa Fishing Charters Some where along the way politicians and engineers thought it would be a great idea to cut a bunch of straight lines through winding rivers, creeks and lakes of Florida. The largest example of this is Lake Okeechobee. The largest lake in Florida’s waters were created to naturally overflow its southern banks and drain through the Everglades into Florida Bay creating an amazing River of Grass.  However, to give sugarcane farmers land to harvest , the southern end…

As a friend of mine once said, I feel sorry for anyone who hasn’t discovered their passion in life. We all have one inside of us. It’s that activity that brings you immense satisfaction. At seven years of age, I was introduced to fishing and knew it would be a part of my life from there forward. Although I fished whenever the opportunity arose, it would be a long time before I would actually become a guide. I went to high school, then college. Next, I held a variety of sales positions that took me to every state in the US.  Then, in late 2005, it was time….time to walk away to spend my working hours doing something that I had always really wanted to do…fish. I pulled the plug to pursue my dream…become a fishing guide in the great state of Florida….arguably one of the best states to fish in the entire United States. 

The summer in the Tampa Bay fishery will see highly active Snook, with steady activity for the other flats favorites: Seatrout and Redfish. However, our favorite time of the year also appears now – The yearly Tarpon run. The Tarpon run generally starts in May and lasts until August.
