Tampa Fishing Academy and Charters

Fish Tampa Bay’s numerous coves, inlets, and flats and target big fish with Tampa Fishing Academy and Charters! Your guide for the day is full-time Captain Shawn Pratt, an enthusiastic angler and patient guide who has the knowledge and experience to put you on the fish all day long.

Hop aboard his 2014 24’ Hanson center console, perfectly suited for 6 anglers who all want to be able to fish at the same time. You’ll get to all the best spots fast thanks to her 200 HP Yamaha engine that can cruise at a speed of 40 knots. Her shallow draft makes her ideal for navigating the diverse inshore and nearshore waters nearby and makes for a steady ride.

You’ll depart from Apollo Beach and hit the most productive spots for highly desirable saltwater fish. We’re talking Snook, Snapper, Tripletail, Kingfish, Cobia, and Sheepshead depending on seasonality. Since you’re fishing in Florida, it goes without mentioning that there’s ample Tarpon during the mighty beasts migratory season.

All of the Penn and Shimano rods, reels, and tackle you need for a successful day of fishing will be provided. Capt. Shawn is also happy and clean and bag your catch at the end of the day for easy transport home. Just be sure to pack drinks and snacks to keep you going and feel free to store them in the onboard cooler.

Tipping is appreciated. Seasoned and novice anglers alike are bound to have an epic day aboard Tampa Fishing Academy and Charters!
