Tampa, Florida, is a paradise for fishing enthusiasts. Unsurprisingly, many visitors to the area choose to spend their vacation days on a Tampa fishing charter. FishnFL offers a range of fishing charters, each tailored to a specific type of fishing adventure. From inshore fishing to offshore fishing and even tarpon fishing, FishnFL has something for everyone. Let’s look at what makes Tampa fishing charters with FishnFL so special.
Meet Captain Jason Dozier
Captain Jason Dozier is a Florida native who grew up fishing and learning to navigate Florida’s backcountry and inter-coastal waterways. He has a U.S. Coast Guard 50-ton masters captain license, allowing him to pursue his passion for sharing his love, respect, and knowledge of Florida’s pristine coasts. To Capt. Jason, putting his clients on fish is not just a job; it’s a passion, an addiction, and a rush. He will work diligently to make sure that you get to enjoy the beautiful waters he gets to fish on every day just as much as he does.
Offshore Fishing Charters
Offshore fishing charters out of the Tampa Bay area are some of the most exciting and productive fishing trips you can take. If you want to fill a cooler with excellent-eating fish or keep your pole bent, this is the charter for you! All of our offshore fishing charters run out of Tampa, Florida. The sky is the limit when it comes to what you can catch. Grouper, snapper, kingfish, barracuda, sharks, and many other species can be found in these waters year-round. Our guides run offshore fishing charters 365 days a year (weather permitting). The time of year is essential to what you can keep and what is biting best. But there are always tons of fish to catch, no matter the time of year.
Tampa Inshore Fishing Charters
Tampa Bay is the largest shallow-water estuary in all of Florida and is home to Florida’s most prized inshore game fish, including redfish, snook, and trout. There’s a great diversity in the areas we fish and the fish we catch. Inshore fishing charters are great for families, corporate outings, and serious anglers looking to see some of Florida’s most prized shallow-water sport fish. We run inshore fishing charters out of Tarpon Springs, Tampa Bay, Port Richey, and St. Petersburg. It depends on the time of year, but redfish, snook, and trout are our most common catches. But we also get into cobia, Spanish mackerel, jack crevalle, sheepshead, sharks, and many other shallow-water species. Redfish and trout are great most of the year except for the hottest months. Snook, mackerel, and sharks are good in the spring, summer, and fall. Cobia in the spring and summer and sheepshead in the winter.
Tampa Shark Fishing Charters
Tampa Bay is one of the most shark-infested waters in the world. During the summer months (July, August, and September), FishnFL offers exciting shark fishing charters in Tampa Bay. If you have ever wanted to wrestle with one of the world’s most proficient predators, you owe it to yourself to go on a Tampa shark fishing charter with FishnFL. Fishin’ Fl. runs most of his shark fishing charters out of Tampa Bay directly. Sharks are abundant in Tampa Bay’s coastal waters during the summer months. FishnFL’s expert guides will take you to the best shark fishing spots, where you can hook into various species, including bull sharks, hammerheads, and blacktips. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a novice, our guides will provide you with all the necessary equipment and knowledge to safely and successfully catch these incredible creatures.
Tampa Tarpon Fishing Charters
Tampa Bay is home to one of the world’s largest annual migrations of tarpon. They flood our beaches and bays in droves every spring and summer. There is nothing like hooking a 100lb tarpon, hearing the drag scream on the reel, and watching it leap into the air. FishnFL offers tarpon fishing charters in May, June, and July out of O’Neill’s Marina in St. Petersburg, FL. The ideal number of anglers for a trip is 1-3, but it’s doable to have a 4th angler, though discouraged. On average, tarpon charters hook between 5 and 7 fish. We usually land about half as many as we hook, but it’s rare that we ever get skunked. Our average fish weigh between 80lbs and 120lbs, but we usually hook a few each year, nearing 200lbs. The fight with a 100lb tarpon lasts between 20 and 30 minutes on average, but we try to land fish as fast as possible to ensure quick revival and for your safety.
