Tampa Shark Fishing Charters

Captain Jason Dozier and the team at FishnFl will guide you on an unforgettable Shark fishing expedition in Tampa Bay. Captain Dozier is a Florida native. He grew up reeling-in fish from Florida’s inter-coastal waterways. His passion for reeling-in the region’s Hammerhead, Bull, Blacktip, Bonnethead, and Atlantic Sharpnose Shark is contagious.

Tampa is Florida’s topmost Gulf Coast City! The city is renowned for energetic nightlife, unadulterated mangroves,  and Shark fishing.

Sharks are abundant in Tampa Bay’s inshore waters. It’s true, many species of Sharks dwell among the region’s shore. Don’t fear: despite Tampa Bay’s copious Shark population few swimmers have ever been bitten. Most inshore dwelling Sharks are not dangerous to humans, although they’re fierce predators of fish. There’s nothing as awe-inspiring as witnessing a Shark thrash on its prey – it’s the cycle of life – raw, terrifying, unedited, and beautiful!

Tampa Shark Fishing Charter F.A.Q.

Fishin’ Fl. runs shark fishing charters during July, August, and September. There are sharks in the area year-round but the warmer months provide the best action.

Where do we meet for the charter?

Fishin’ Fl. runs most of his shark fishing charters out of Tampa Bay directly.

How big do the sharks get?

We can go for small blacktips, bonnetheads, and sharpnose sharks in the 2-3 foot range or we can target the big boys like bull sharks and hammerheads which can exceed 10 feet long and weigh as much as 500lbs. the choice is up to you.

It’s essential to deploy heavy tackle to reel in the ocean’s most revered hunter, the Shark. Light tackle makes for an exhausted angler and a dead Shark. Professional anglers suggest deploying a heavy spinning rod to reel in the fierce Shark, especially along the coast. Spinning rods don’t offer the leverage a traditional rod does, and leverage is required to reap a Shark from deep waters, however, the Shark’s struggle along inshore waters is parallel with the coast, not vertical.

What types of sharks do you target?

  • Bull Shark
  • Hammerhead Shark
  • Bonnethead Shark
  • Atlantic Sharpnose Shark
  • Blacktip Shark
