Skinny Water Charters have been leading the pack with some of the Clearwater areas absolute best flats fishing charters. We truly know how to fish the area and we have the right equipment, boat, bait, and waterway knowledge to deliver you an amazing fishing charter experience in any scenario.

Captain Craig Lahr will be leading the way as you scour the waters in search of your big-time prize catch. Capt. Craig has been in the fishing business for 38 years, 23 of them being a full-time guide. This experience makes him one of the best charter boat captains in the Clearwater/Tampa Bay area. From 1982 thru 1995 he worked with several different captains on many different vessels. Capt. Craig will guide you along Johns Pass, Reddington Shores, Clearwater, Largo, St. Petersburg, Palm Harbor, Tarpon springs, and all of Tampa Bay’s fishing grounds, providing fishing memories that will last a lifetime.

Your fishing journey stars once you hop aboard the 1970 Custom 22.2ft AquaSport fully equipped with all the latest safety and electronic devises including a Lowrance fishfinder and GPS to make your fishing trip a success. She has a livewell on deck and is can carry up to 3 adults, or 2 children and 2 adults.

From the shallow grass flats fishing to the bays, our flats fishing charters are among the best in the Tampa, Florida area. Our flats charters include taking one to four persons to areas such as the grass flats, nearshore, backwaters and bays. Our flats fishing experiences include casting with artificial or live bait along with traditional & fly fishing. Our trips also include rods, reels, tackle, a fishing license, and water to keep you hydrated.

While you are out fishing with us, expect to see a Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, King Mackerel, Shark, Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Snapper, or a grouper on your hook as you are victoriously pulling it into the boat after a hard-fought battle.

Half Day Trip (AM)
We had perfect weather for this trip. Captain Lahr was quick to put my son and I on fish. We targeted redfish and snook and found both. My son caught his first red and it happened to be his personal biggest fish ever as well. In all a great time and we highly recommend Skinny Water Charter.

Captain Craig worked with us to get out a day earlier than we planned, because of high winds. Good time catching some trout.

Capt. Craig is awesome. It took a couple stops to find the bite, but you just know he’ll find the bite. Caught redfish, trout, and snook. Lost a couple king mackerel too. Definitely recommend Capt Craig - a pro and a man who truly loves to fish.
