Our Captain & Fishing Guide

I’m Capt. Jesse Nofi and I would like to welcome you to 360 Fishing Charters. Above all things, I live to share my passion of fishing charters in Tampa , FL with people from all around the world. Here’s Joe from England (right).


Before I was a Tampa bay fishing guide and USCG licensed Tampa fishing charter captain, I’d sell live bait fish out of a salt-rusted truck to local fisherman.  One day a local Tampa fishing charter business offered me an opportunity to take a tourist and his father fishing in Treasure-Island, FL.

Cody (right) in the picture below was my first customer. This was Cody’s first Snook, and the biggest fish of his life. Cody is from Minnesota where they fish for Bass back home. He was excited to toss out a 1lb live bait, and humbled to say the least once he reeled in this big momma of a Snook.

A month later, while working for Osprey Bay Outdoors I had an opportunity to guide Tampa kayak fishing charters. Nick and Laura, a couple who recently located to Redington Shores, FL were my first clients.  Below is Nick with a nice Snook.

Fishing Charters in Tampa, FLIn all my free time I went fishing for big Snook, and studied peer reviewed scientific journals about their feeding habits on the west coast of Florida.

My favorite fish to catch. Big snook.

During the summer of 2011, a local captain offered me a chance to guide Tampa bay fishing charters. On the first trip I had a 6 person family from New Jersey and we absolutely hammered the sharks. We got 60 to the boat in 4 hours. It was one of those days you can never forget…  Rod bending, drag screaming, Shark madness!!!

This family from NJ was one hell of a team.  They communicated well and put 60 sharks in the boat.

Fishing out of Fort Desoto Park, FL I had the chance to take people fishing from England, Israel, France, Canada, Brazil, and all over the United States.

I launched 360 Fishing Charters in 2011 as a full-time Tampa fishing charter captain and Tampa fishing guide. I do this job because it’s what I’m most passionate about, and it’s what I love to do. My business is not about me, It’s about my customers having a good time, catching fish, and making memories with family & friends.

360 Fishing Charters has kayaks, boats, and charter captains available to accommodate for Tampa bay fishing charters, and Tampa deep sea fishing charters. Our pricing is competitive and our service is second to none. I’d like to personally invite you, your family, and friends to come fish with our crew!
