Everyone’s favorite bycatch, fishing for Flounder is a year-long festival. This is one species where double digit hook-ups are often considered the norm on a good day. Often joining them on a dinner plate, Pompano is considered a worthy opponent by most veteran fisherfolk. They’re usually scouted along the beaches or near the bridge pilings, depending on the season.

Welcome to Tampa Bay, Florida, home of some the best light tackle inshore fishing in the world! I’m a native of the Tampa Bay area and have been fishing Tampa Bay area waters all of my life. This gives me the unique advantage of knowing when and where the fish are biting year round. Born in St. Petersburg and never lived outside of the county, I’ve called Tampa Bay waters my “back yard” for a long time. I’m a local Tampa fishing guide and have been charter fishing Tampa Bay area since 1997. All my Tampa Bay area fishing charters are family friendly with an emphasis on being easy going and having a great time on the water! I invite you to take a look at my website, look through the photo galleries and fishing reports, and browse the pages to learn more about the fish species we target and when and where we target them.

St.Pete Beach fishing trips have been catch lots of Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, Trout, and Redfish fishing both the grass flats of Ft. Desoto, and just off the beach in front of the the Don Cesar hotel. Fall fishing is heating up and the St. Pete area is great because it the opening between the Gulf of mexico and Tampa Bay, and all the fish moving through the area pass by the area making for great angling opportunities.
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.
Captain Andy and Captain Ollie were fantastic! We were so excited to experience deep sea fishing and they helped make the experience worth while. We caught several difference fish including a handful of sharks! They were knowledgeable of the water and where the best spots to catch fish were. Our family day trip for 5 was an amazing adventure and a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend anyone who lives in the area or is visiting Florida make time for these guys! They do an incredible job and you are guaranteed to catch some fish. At the end of the trip Captain Ollie cleaned our fish for us and we were able to eat our catch(es) of the day at Ricky’s. The experience was one to remember! Thank you to both guys for a successful day on the water!M MJ Boyce

So many we skipped catchin fish we could have had for… lunch to on the jumping hard fighting fish he put us on! Anthony was very personable and friendly and knew his stuff.

Happy New Year everyone. Been a while since a wrote a fishing report so I am going look back the entire 2015. January and Febuary started off with excellent fishing offshore of St Pete Beach and Treasure Island. The target was Hogfish and we did very well. Light tackle spinning gear with live shrimp on […]
Had a blast today out on the water. Kept us out of the rain and we pulled in some keepers. Great guys that I will definitely get in touch with next ur when I come back down. Looking forward to another… trip already!!! Thanks again guys!!! See More
Unless you are trolling, the movement of submerged artificial baits are controlled almost exclusively by the speed of your retrieve and the action that you impart to the lure with the tip of your fishing rod.
The flats are really coming to life in north Pinellas County. Our main focus this time of year is spotted sea trout, though redfish are cooperating and schooling a bit. Snook are also responding to the warm weather, occasionally eating on the falling…
Buyer beware: These days, it seems everybody and their brother is a fishing guide. Unfortunately, many of these captains are part-timers which use inferior equipment, vessels, have zero customer service skills or just recently obtained their USCG license and have little experience. Then there are the charter booking agencies who don’t care whose boat they stick you on, as long as they take your hard-earned money. These unscrupulous charter services sadly leave the consumer very disappointed and believing that the fishing in Florida is highly overrated.
Inshore Snook, Redfish, and Trout have all been caught on recent fishing charters. Snook season is open and we have been catching slot fish. Snook slot size is 28″-33″. Redfish are getting caught on most charter. We have been free lining live sardines around oyster beds, and cut baiting around docks with good success. Trout fishing is also getting better by the day, and the size of the fish are increasing as they come in from offshore and gather in shallows.
St.Pete Beach fishing has been providing plenty of action for anglers visiting this area. Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, trout, and sharks have all been around and willing to bite over the last few weeks. Tarpon fishing is starting to get good, the fish were a little late this year, but they are finally here and the bite is getting better daily. Tarpon fishing trips are limited to only one trip per day as it is a full day charter. Snook, Redfish, and Trout are also providing a steady bite on the inshore flats around ft.desoto park. Live sardine have been abundant and the fish are willing to strike. If you have kids the small sharks have been around they they loving them! Give me a call if you want to get out
Snook clearly represent the class of the inshore game fish. Their speed, strong runs and occasional jumps make them the fish of choice for many Florida anglers. Snook are available year round; however the cooler, winter water temperatures slow their metabolisms significantly and make them a difficult target during our coldest months. A wide range of artificial and natural baits can be used to catch snook. The most commonly used method is live baiting with scaled sardines or “whitebait”. However, be sure to review all current fishing regulations before keeping any Snook as this species is heavily protected. Spring and fall fishing typically takes place along inshore structure…river mouths, mangrove shorelines and residential docks. Come late spring, fish move out to the beaches, gather in larger groups and can be caught in greater numbers. During the hottest months of summer, fish tends to feed best during low light periods and at night.

The weather is warming up and the abundance of sunshine makes it ideal for sight fishing. You never know what’s crushing the flats! Look for Jack, Redfish, and Tarpon. Sheepshead is in full swing this month to fill the freezers.
Todd, Its always a pleasure having you on the boat. I wish the Kings would of shown up like they should of but I guess the grouper wasnt to bad of a catch. Congrats on getting your first Triple Tail! Capt. Steve Betz
4: At Fort DeSoto Park, plenty of pompano along with flounder and sheepshead are being caught around the area. Anglers are catching some real nice keeper gag grouper from the bridge. Spot tail pinfish has been the hot bait on an outgoing tide. The Spanish mackerel bite is good at both the Bay and Gulf Piers and there’s whiting on the beach and in the passes. “Inside the park, there’s been some nice trout caught from the ‘Mud Hole’ area and the snook bite is pretty decent,” reports Capt. Claude Hinson of the Bait Bucket (727-864-2108).
Both are seasoned anglers, so it takes a lot to impress. They couldn’t say enough about the service, expert…ise & all-around great personalities of their guides. If I could give this 5 stars, I’d try to make it six.
