Tampa Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Tampa Deep Sea Fishing Charters :

Capt. Treg and I are very busy if we don’t answer the phone do not be alarmed…

We’re probably driving a boat, fileting fish, or having a cold one on the rocks.

A consistent catch of key west snapper or white grunts and grouper is common right now. Capt Treg has an amazing cevice recipe he makes with the snappers.

The occasional shark invasion is inevitable once the spring & summer come around.  Mackerel and Kingfish will be here soon.  We’re in a happy fishing season for captains here around Tampa, FL.

This time last year I saw mackerel sharks bonita tarpon jack crevelle ladyfish and more species all chasing giant schools of spearing dumping out of Tampa bay. I think we’ve got a killer spring and summertime fishing season ahead of us and I’m glad to be able to share it with people from all around the world.

Come deep sea fishing in Tampa with 360 fishing charters.

We look forward to making your fishing adventure the best it can possibly be.

Had a Tampa deep sea fishing charter recently… got some cell phone footage!

Our Tampa deep sea fishing charters are an absolute blast.  You never know when a giant school of Sharks will come swimming over the reef! These 4ft size schooling sharks are tons of fun and sometimes provide a 2-3 hour consistent bite of non stop action. The best day I had this summer on a targeted shark fishing charter, we caught 70 in 4 hours.  We never had to leave the inlet…

Mike from TN caught 20 sharks to 5 feet in length this day.

There’s nothing that compares to deep sea fishing Tampa, FL!

Tampa Fishing Charters | Aug & Sept Fishing Report 2012

Here’s an up to date report for our Tampa fishing charters; Fishing is hot!

With a recent change in water temperature the fish have become more Active and Aggressive. Monster schools of glass minnows are being chased and eaten by blue runners, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, bonita, and tarpon.  Big bull sharks, and various species of shark are feeding heavily this month with black tips and Atlantic sharp nose to 5+ feet in length. Fishing within a few hours of sunrise or sunset has proven to be the best time for catching Bonita and Mackerel.

 Here’s John from GA with a Bonita he caught on a Docs goofy jig.

Bonnethead sharks are fun on light tackle and we’ve been catching plenty on our Tampa fishing charters.  Here’s one of my clients from Virginia with a decent bonnethead shark.  Bonnetheads are the most prevalent shark in the Hammerhead family for the Tampa, FL area.  Our best shark charter this summer yielded 70+ Sharks with 3 or more pushing 5 feet in length.  For big groups, shark fishing charters, or fishing the big schools of mackerel and Bonita can provide consistent action on the right tides. When these species aren’t showing, we chase after Snook, Redfish, Flounder, Black drum, and other species.

Wednesday last week I had a day off so I did some wade fishing for Snook with my good friend Kenny. First cast he caught this this big Florida Redfish and it was only a short while before the Snook would chew on the crazy fast new moon tides.

After we each caught two snooks in the 8-10lb class range I reached into the Live well for a Large live bait. A 10 inch or 1lb live Pigfish was my bait.  First cast, 5 seconds later, THUMP, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Line peeling off the reel fast. Fish jumps a good 2 feet in the air, 180* Spin, Comes down nose first and takes off towards a submerged piling to try and get away. It was an epic battle.Deep Sea Fishing Tampa | Tampa Deep Sea Fishing
Overall, Snook fishing has been on fire.  We’ve been able to catch a few each charter without specifically targeting them. Common by catch while Snook fishing includes Flounder, Redfish, Speckled trout, and often Grouper when fishing around heavy structure or near shore rock piles.

Kohl from Alabama caught this big flounder last week towards the end of our charter.  We wound up getting some Snook and hit a few inshore rock piles for grouper before we ended the day with this flounder.

Monster black drum are still around and a Target for summer. They take a big bait and fight like a small truck.  Here’s Brian from Gainesville with his. One is usually enough for each guest. After one of these you’ll be pretty tired out.
