Get ready to come face-to-gills with Snook, Speckled Trout, Tripletail, Redfish, Gag Grouper (Dec – Feb is a great time to hook these fish!), and even the “Silver King” (Tarpon), plus plenty more. Your captain will be on hand to show you the best techniques to use, along with some local tips he’s picked up. Even little ones will be able to reel in their first ever catch!

    Guarantee to catch Sharks, the best thing is that it could be a baby or could be jaws, I have all proper gear to ensure if by chance we hooked that 3-4-5 hour fight we get to see it. Night trips are the best trips but don’t think they don’t eat during the day. Book now!

It's fair to say that a love for angling definitely runs in Capt. Matthew's blood – his family has been fishing in this area for over 50 years, and he was raised on these waters! He started fishing at the age of 4, and discovered his passion for exploring the waters of Tampa, FL. He left his job as a firefighter to pursue his dream of turning fishing into a career, and now successfully owns and runs his own charter company. His main goal is to make his guests happy – especially those who have never fished before!
