Description:

Do you want to see and fish beautiful Tampa Bay and its surrounding waters?...

Do you want to see and fish beautiful Tampa Bay and its surrounding waters? Then join Capt. Mike for an exciting day on Tampa Bay. Florida's west coast offers some of the best fishing in the world and with over 25 years of experience, we know where the fish are. The Tampa Bay area holds a variety of game fish including snook, redfish, sea trout, tarpon, cobia, snapper, sharks and much more. For beginning anglers we will supply all gear and provide instruction to maximize your experience. For experienced anglers we can show you the tricks of "thinking like Tampa Bay fish." On our excursion we will not only catch the bounty of the Bay but also get a glimpse some of the other animals that live in and around it. It is common to see bottle-nosed dolphins,manatees, pelicans, ospreys, cranes,and flamingos to name a few. Along with fishing and sight-seeing,we can visit some of the beautiful, unspoiled islands such as Egmont Key State Park, Ft. De Soto State Park, and Paradise Islands. Visitors to these islands can swim and snorkel in The Gulf of Mexico, explore the shore and take photos or just relax on the beach. There are also many waterfront restaurants and local pubs where we can stop for a quick drink or even have lunch while out on the water. I am hereto tailor your day on the bay specifically for you. I want to make it memorable and enjoyable for you, your family and friends.

We fished for 6 hours with Captain Mike and it was a great experience. My wife and I have gone on several charters and this is one of the best. We caught several fish and Captain Mike cleaned and fileted them for us. We all had our own lives especially in the water at all times, and Captain Mike made... More

He is always super accommodating to us and always makes sure we are successful in fishing and that we get the most out of our Florida time. It is definitely something that we look forward to every year when... More

Captain Mike took my friend and I out for the day and we had blast. He knew all the best spots and got us a ton of fish on a weekend that I heard several others describe as a tough weekend to fish. He was extremely courteous, we couldn't have asked for a better captain!

I caught the biggest fish of my life being a 35 1/2 in snook it was amazing. Thank you so much for an amazing time. Chris and Tammy... More

These guys are local to the area and knew the best spots to take us. They are great fisherman and a lot of fun. Our boys can't wait to go again.... More

Chartered a trip with Captain Mike on May 28th in Tampa Bay. Had a great time, he put us on fish and we slammed the redfish and snook, catching over 30 fish. He was a nice guy who cared about the conversation and all of us on the boat. Would recommend and will book again.

The day started out when the captain my party had engaged could not make the charter. After some frantic calling another captain reached out to Captain Mike and we arranged for an afternoon redfish/snook charter with him. Pure luck... which we intend to repeat in the future. Mike took us to a location not far from the ramp and within... More
