What we catch

Inshore and Nearshore Gulf Fishing

Fishing from Tampa Bay to Sarasota we encounter a wide variety of species throughout the year. We are blessed with a year round fishery that provides steady action. Depending on the time of year and weather conditions we are able to target: Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Flounder, Permit, Cobia, Grouper, Snapper, Kingfish and more.

The Boat

The boat is a 2016 Pathfinder 2300 HPS powered by a Yamaha 250 SHO motor. It is equiped with all the newest accessories including: twin Power-Pole shallow water anchors, Lowrance 12" GPS, MinnKota iPilot trolling motor, JL Audio Stereo, and more. 

Customers ride in comfort on Ocean-Tamer marine bean bags. These are great for long runs and can easily be removed when fishing to allow for maximum space.
