What You Can Expect:

Inshore Fishing

Tampa Bay is one of the largest saltwater estuaries in the world and it is home to some of the most exciting Tampa Inshore Fishing Charters on the planet. With Redfish, Trout, Snook, Tarpon, Sheepshead, Cobia, several species of sharks and many other types of fish call Tampa Bay their home.

We offers flats and backbay fishing in and around the waters of Tampa Bay, Florida. Fish for Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, Grouper, Tripletail, Cobia, and Shark. The Tarpon run strong in Tampa Bay from June through the first part of September. September also brings in Snook season. We experienced in many different angling methods, including fly fishing, plug, and spin, and uses live bait, or artificial as required.

Tarpon and Permit

This is by far the single most exciting thing you can do on the water! Warm weather, crystal clear water, and Tampa Tarpon Fishing Charters will put on that big Tarpon of a lifetime!

All of our tarpon fishing charters run out of Gulfport, FL which is near St. Petersburg, FL. Most of the time we head south in search of tarpon hitting the beaches of St. Petersburg, Ft. DeSoto, Egmont Key, Passage Key, and Anna Maria Island. It’s a beautiful area to fish and extremely productive for tarpon year after year.

If you’ve always wanted to catch a fish that is as big as you, you owe it to yourself to go on a tarpon fishing charter with us at least once in your life.

We will make your trip the best Florida Fishing trip you've ever experienced. Just picture yourself Snook fishing along the beautiful Mangrove Shoreline of Tampa Bay or jumping a giant Tarpon along the Tampa Bay Skyline as the sun is coming up or fly fishing the pristine grass flats for Redfish in the afternoon or fishing the docks lights at night for big Snook, Redfish and Trout.

You can bring your own fly rod and reel!

Rental Requirements


Why choose Tampa for my fishing trip?

So what separates Tampa fishing from the rest of the state? The answer is simple. There is more diversity in fishing combined with year around action that you simply cannot find anywhere else. The guides are more experienced and their love for the area is unmatched.

What should I bring?

You should bring with you a good pair of UV sunglasses, a hat, weather relevant clothing, sunscreen, drinks, and snacks. We provide everything else, and yes - that includes the license and all tackle. You can learn more in our Charter FAQ section.

What style of fishing?

Whether novice or pro, Captain Jim can cater the trip to best meet your needs. He offers tips & tricks and an exceptional sight fishing experience on the platform. He caters to both light tackle and fly fisherman. And also offers support for both live/frozen bait and artificial lures - The choices are all yours.

What is light tackle fishing?

Light tackle fishing is done by utilizing light line and light action rods. We offer heavier tackle trips for nearshore and Tarpon charters, but light tackle fishing is a sight fisherman's favorite.

What is sight fishing?

Sight fishing is using your eyes to scan the water for "the push" or activity of game fish in shallow water. When the guide is poling the boat, you both scan the flats for activity to present to.

Why pole the boat?

Our inshore charters on light tackle and on the fly are done on the Maverick. This boat can float in mere inches of water. We pole the boat with the motor up as it is literally too shallow to power the boat into. Poling is the ultimate way to spot and stalk fish on the flats.
