For an angling experience of a lifetime look to First Cast Charters. First Cast Charters is a a family-owned and operated fishing service. Captain Bernie has more than a quarter century of experience. He is a professional Captain who will proved you and your guests with a Tampa Bay angling experience you'll always remember. The First Cast Fishing Charters experience starts with our custom 23' center console. She is powered by a Yamaha 300HP four stroke outboard. You will be amazed at how quickly and quietly the Yamaha gets us from spot to spot. Her speed and efficiency are matched only by her comfortable ride. The 23 DLX cockpit and casting decks deliver 360 degree “fishability” for up to 4 anglers without breaking a sweat. Our custom T-Top and canvas shade will keep you cool when the sun gets to be a bit too much. My specialty is the pursuit of Snook inshore and King Mackerel just offshore. When you fish with me, I will formally introduce you to the world-famous Tarpon, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Black Drum. Near the bridges and just offshore, we’ll target many species of Mackerels, Snappers, Groupers and various Shark species. All of the fishing gear is included on your trip as well as the fishing license. The First Cast Team is devoted to incredible customer service and to provide a memorable and exhilarating angling experience. And we want to come back again. Book today!

Trip Details
We will spend the morning targeting snook, trout, reds, tarpon, black drum, snapper, macks and jacks and just about anything in between. Everyday is different but the goal is to keep a consistent bite going throughout the trip, catch some new to you fish, set some personal best records, and learn how to fish Tampa Bay. We will typically stay within Tampa Bay, the inlets, and the beaches.

Trip Details
This is Captain Bernie's most highly recommended trip. We will spend the morning and early afternoon targeting snook, trout, reds, tarpon, black drum, snapper, macks and jacks. Everyday is little bit different but the goal is to keep a consistent bite going throughout the trip, catch some new to you fish, set some personal best records, and learn how to fish Tampa Bay. With a 6 hour trip we have more time to fish. We can also travel a little bit further to some of those hard to get to spots that don't see heavy pressure from other fishermen. Bring a snack and a camera and let's have some fun fishing!

Trip Details
Each of Captain Bernies's trips are custom tailored to fit the group you are fishing with. This is a great trip for the serious angler who wants maximum time on the water or families that may want to fish and also do some island hopping or snorkeling. As far as the fishing is concerned, we will follow the tidal feeding patterns to put us in the right place at the right time to catch snook reds, trout, tarpon, Spanish, kings, snapper, flounder, and trips.
