Capt. Evan Denis Fishing Charters is your premiere source for Florida Tarpon fishing! Our family-friendly Clearwater fishing charters are perfect for anglers of all ages and experience. We will give you nothing but a good time out on the beautiful waters of Central West Florida!

Captain Evan Denis will be behind the helm as you experience Florida Tarpon fishing. Capt. Evan grew up fishing in Florida learning where all the different hotspots are at and observing the patterns of many species. He began running Clearwater fishing charters so he could show the world how exhilarating it can be. He will go to great lengths to make sure you are right where the fish are biting. Nothing makes him happier than seeing his clients reel in a giant Tarpon or other amazing trophy catches.

Our fishing trips will set sail out of Belleair Bluffs, Florida. Capt. Evan makes it a priority to put you on the fish, so you may end up exploring the nearby fishing grounds of Clearwater, Largo, St. Petersburg, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Indian rocks Beach, St Pete Beach, and many other fishing hotspots of Central West Florida.

Your adventure begins the moment you board Capt. Evan’s magnificent 23ft Dorado bay boat. This is the ultimate vessel for Clearwater fishing charters. This boat is powered by a 150hp Mercury engine that reach speeds up to 35mph. She is equipped with features such as a livewell, dry storage, power poles, Yeti coolers, and a wireless trolling motor to hold us in place or sneak up on fish. You and 3 other guests will have plenty of room on board to enjoy Florida Tarpon fishing.

We offer fishing trips ranging from 4-10 hours covering the inshore and nearshore waters of Clearwater. From May 1st to August 30th, we offer trips specifically targeting the mighty “Silver King”. Our trips include the use of all the fishing gear, lures, bait, and fishing licenses you need for a successful day of Florida fishing. We will clean any catch you are able to keep and don’t forget to ask Captain Evan about the local restaurants that will cook your catch.

The species we target will depend on the time of year and the trip option you select. Redfish, Snook, Flounder, and Trout are mostly the targets of our inshore trips. Kingfish, Grouper, Sharks, Cobia, Tripletail, and Mangrove Snapper are our nearshore targets. Our Florida Tarpon fishing trips are dedicated to catching the huge Tarpon gamefish that are popular around the summertime.

Around the beginning of summertime, to the end of August, Tarpon show up by the hundreds to the surrounding beaches and passes. They are the ultimate fighting fish with long runs, huge jumps, and some reaching sizes over 200lbs. Tarpon trips are based around the tides and close to the full and new moons are the best time to fish. We use mostly live bait with artificial lures on 8ft rods with 6,000-10,000 seized Shimano Saragosas with 30-50lb braid to target these monsters. This rod and reel combo allows us to land Tarpon in a very timely manner so you won’t get too worn out.

Half Day Trip AM
What a great experience! We were on fish the entire trip. Capt. Evan knows where to go and has one of the best attitudes I’ve ever experienced with a charter. Towards the end of our trip, another charter swung by to see how our morning went. Let’s just say the folks on that boat weren’t smiling. Capt. Evan expertly filleted all the keepers so we ate good that night! We’ll definitely go back out with Capt. Evan in the near future.

3/4 Day Trip
I don’t leave reviews very often on the internet about any of my purchases or experiences. I have to be really impressed or really disappointed to be motivated enough to leave a review. This 3/4 day trip with Captain Evan Denis was top notch! My son and I chose a trip with Captain Evan because of the other positive reviews and they were all accurate! We got to the dock about 15 minutes early and Captain Evan was already out catching bait fish for us. After buying some live shrimp for us, we were away from the dock on time. He kept both of us baited up, gave us plenty of tips, and even netted and unhooked the fish. Captain Evan provided all the fishing gear needed. The spinning reel combos were in excellent shape. If our line got bit off by a big blue, he had another rod ready to go! Licenses and fuel were covered as well. We doubled up on some nice sheepsheads at the first stop. We knew it was going to be a good day catching! There was plenty of variety. It was about like fishing in a Bass Pro Shop aquarium! Capt. Evan put us on the sheepsheads, mangrove snapper, some nice blues, a few spanish mackerel and black sea bass in the keeper range, and even a flounder! My son had plenty of rod-doubling, line-stripping jack crevalle action. We caught some very nice sea trout and a red drum that were out of season and after a few quick pictures, each was released healthy back into the water to fight again one day. It was a great day fishing .... and catching…. with Captain Evan! All you have to do is show up with a few snack bars and some sunscreen and Captain Evan does the rest! He even filleted our keepers for us! It is well worth the money! We gave him a generous tip since the cost of the trip can barely cover the use of the boat, fuel, gear and bait. His knowledge, experience and time are even more valuable! Thanks, Capt. Evan, for the memories!

Half Day Trip PM
We booked a half day trip starting at 1 pm. Captain Evan was on time ready to go with everything needed. He took us out to multiple different spots and each one we went to the two of us caught several different types of fish. He is very knowledgeable of the area, fishing spots, and made sure we always had either a pole in the water or reeling in a fish. I would recommend this trip with Captain Evan to everyone ready this review. When we come back down to the area, we will be booking it with him again!
