About
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.

Simply put, Best. Captain. Ever. My son and I went on an 8-hr trip and had an absolute blast. Mike knew what seemed like every corner of Tampa Bay and expertly navigated the boat to maximize the bite. We caught Snook, Mangrove Snapper, and Red Fish. Mike didn't stop working to ensure our success the entire time. Plus, he's a hell of a nice guy and fun to talk with.

If you are booking a charter in the Bay, book with Capt Mike and don't look back. He's that good.

This was our second trip out with Reel Therapy Charters and just like the first time, we loved every minute of it. Going out with Capt. Lee today was a blast. We all hauled in plenty of fish and several people caught the biggest redfish we had ever seen. Previously ,going out with Capt. Mike was also a blast. I can confidently say that no matter which Captain you have the pleasure of going out with you’ll have a wonderful day on the water.

Had a great time with Captain Lee (although I think he may still be cold several days later). Coming from upstate New York, the 60 degree weather felt nice to us. In town for the Bucs/Cowboys playoff game, we took a 4 hr. charter with the primary goal of catching my 10 year old son some fish. Although water was a little too cold to catch redfish and snook, we caught several sea trout, flounder and even a blow fish and sting ray. Captain Lee made the experience entirely enjoyable for the entire family. He has a way with kids.

My wife and I book a 4 hour trip with Captain Mike in late July. It was AWESOME! We had heard very good things about him and his tours...little did we know we would have such a fun day catching fish. I told Mike that I would like to catch redfish and snook. He knew the exact spots and we were able to catch more than our fill of fish. Mike was very observant and helpful as we fished. He would even cast another pole and let us reel it in if we hooked something. He had all the bait ready and even provided some snacks and water.

Our day: First cast...landed a 28inch RedFish! We knew it was going to be a great day. We caught about 10-15 red fish, then moved on to snook. My wife and I both caught 30inch + snook and were very excited. These results are probably not typical, be we had a blast. The whole time we fished, Mike was checking up on weather, tides, etc to make sure we were in the best possible location to catch our fish. He gave us good pointers, baited our hooks when needed and helped us take all the pictures we wanted. He really was there to make sure we enjoyed the day. He even helped us clean two of our fish to take home for eating!

I will always use Capt Mike and Reel Therapy fishing tours! It was nice having a fishing guide who just loves to fish and wants other people to have a good time fishing. Rest assured, Capt Mike will do everything he can to put you in the best spot to catch fish.

My son (16 y.o.) and I booked a day of fishing with Capt Mike while vacationing in Florida. It was a great day for many reasons: being out on the water, beautiful weather, fishing and enjoying the outdoors, Capt Mike is a great host...We were able to catch trout (and have them cleaned so that we could eat them for dinner, yummy), snook, red fish and blow fish (which all needed to be released) Mike could tell us a lot about the waters and the different sea creatures around. He was great about moving to different areas to find more fish, as well as varying the bait and power chumming (which cracked us up). We hope to go back during scallop season!

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 sure to keep us from getting tangled. It was a great trip and if I'm ever back in Tampa I'd try to do it again!

This is our third year in a row of fishing with Capt. Mike and he always seems to exceed our expectations. 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 we come back to the Tampa area.

This is our third year of fishing with Captain Mike and it continues to be the highlight of our Tampa vacation! Captain Mike always provides us with an opportunity to catch many fish species in different locations around the bay. He is also a Tampa Firefighter so while fishing, he is a great conversationalist and always has unique suggestions of places to eat and things to do while you are visiting the area. And do not forget to have him filet your catch so you can enjoy a fresh fish fry at a restaurant that provides "hook and cook". We are always amazed at how much fun we have with Captain Mike. We look forward to fishing with him again next year!

Our family had a great time with Captain Andrew & Captain Rocky!! We jumped 2 Tarpons! Hooked and brought in a Saw tooth Shark, Spanish Mackerel, Snook and Cobia. 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. We highly recommend this duo!!

Captain Mike is an amazing guide and fisherman! He has great instincts for finding fish. At one point we had six redfish hooked! My family and I can't wait to go back to Tampa Bay so that we can get back out on the water and catch some more.
