Sport Fishing Trips

Fishing trips in Tampa Bay or the Gulf of Mexico, targeting larger sport fish.
Targeting larger sport fish can be slow and calm. When a sport fish bites, its utter chaos and extreme fun! Some Sharks and Tarpon have no food value, but are the most highly prized sport fish target in Tampa Bay Florida, which can only mean one thing… Their action is legendary! There is no better action in sunny Florida, than a Black Tip or Tarpon catapulting into the air and long screaming drag runs!

All rates are based on a max of 4 anglers.
