The Captain on your Tampa Bay fishing trip will be Eric Pelno. Capt. Eric has been fishing in Florida since he could walk. His passion for the sport of fishing developed at a very early age and has grown stronger over the years. He started running charters with the goal of sharing his passion for fishing with others and showing them how exciting it can be. He has participated in countless tournaments in the area and has won a fair share of them. Capt. Eric looks forward to sharing his knowledge and answering any questions you may have.

Your inshore Florida fishing charter with Capt. Eric will begin in Clearwater and could go on to explore the waters of Palm Harbor, Town ‘N’ Country, Largo, Old Tampa Bay, Hillsborough Bay, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Oldsmar, Feather Town, and many other locations in the Tampa Bay area.

Captain Eric has a 23ft Sabalo Tower boat that makes fishing charters in Clearwater nice and easy. She has room on board for up to 4 passengers and is powered by a 140hp Suzuki engine. She can easily navigate through shallow waters of the Tampa flats. You will find all the proper safety and navigational equipment on deck as well as a loaded livewell.

We offer full and half day trips that can start mornings or afternoons. All of your trips with us include the use of rods, reels, and tackle. Lures and bait will be included as well as a fishing license. At the end of your trip our crew will clean and package your catches.

Tampa Bay is full of exciting species to target. On trips with us, you can expect to target the likes of Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Tarpon, Flounder, Snook, and Tripletail.

Join Captain Eric Pelno and Tampa Bay Flats Fishing for an incredible Florida fishing adventure full of many smiles and catches!

Great Time
I caught a 45" Snook with Captain Eric. I thought I caught big Snook before but I was wrong. This was a finned freak of nature. Things like this should have wings and breathe fire. Thanks Tampa Bay Flats Fishing. My Dad and I both had a great time.
