Half Day Trip (AM)
As a fisherman, I know that the catching part of the fishing relies on a number of factors. The negative factors were in play when my son-in-law and grandson went fishing for Mango Snappers in September 2021 with Captain Charlton, including how we were holding our mouths while fishing.(That’s an oldy but goodie) My point! It was a great day of fishing. Captain Charlton was determined to get us on the fish. I know my back couldn’t have outlasted the number of times he raised the anchor to move us into position. Alas! It was not to be. But that fact will not keep me from coming back. His professional and genuine interest in his charges were outstanding. His knowledge of the area and the fishing possibilities we excellent. The inability of matching school and work schedules made it impossible to schedule another outing with the Captain during the remaining time I was in Florida. Next Time! Lord willing and global warming want flood downtown Tampa.

Beginner 3 Hour Tour
Captain Tom was fantastic and very professional. Arrive exactly on time, promptly responded to questions and seemingly enjoyed the outdoors. While we only landed 2 smaller fish, the Captain did take us to where the fish were as there were schools all around us, just being more fickle this morning. Would most definitely come use the Captain again. Also very happy that his Mako boat led to very smooth sailing around the bay as we went from spot to spot. A fun morning before I hopped on my flight out.

There are only two things one has to know about fishing Tampa Bay in the summer...heat and rain. One any given day it is going to rain. West wind in the morning means rain in the morning. East wind in the morning means rain in the afternoon. But not just a sprinkle. It is usually accompanied by ligh...

It has been an interesting October here in Tampa Bay. First we had a Red Tide scare and then a hurricane. But great fishing still exists. There is a Gulf coast ban on keeping Redfish and Snook until May 10th but there are plenty to have fun with. Red Tide never made it into the upper Tampa Bay. The ...
