Frequently Asked Questions!

We will be fishing the Intracoastal waterway, Gulf of Mexico, and the waters around Clearwater FL. 

Tampa Bay offers a wide variety of fish species to target. Snook, redfish, and spotted seatrout are the main targeted inshore species. However, other species such as Sharks, Tarpon, Spanish Mackerel, Jacks, Bluefish, Grouper, and Mangrove Snapper are also on the list.

Sunscreen, bug spray(for fishing near mangroves) food/snacks, and any special drinks you may want should be brought.

The majority of our fishing will take place in calm water, so sea sickness is unlikely. However, if you are prone to motion sickness, taking some sort of medicine in preparation is not a bad idea

The sun is brutal during a long day on the water, so proper clothing is a must. A breathable long sleeve shirt is recommended, along with lightweight shorts of some kind. A hat and sunglasses are also recommended, as well as none-skid shoes to avoid slipping on the boat. A small bag to keep your things in is also suggested.
