We get these questions a lot: Do I need a fishing license in Florida? Can you eat fish from Tampa Bay? What sea is Tampa on? Firstly, yes you do need a fishing license in Florida in order to go fishing, it costs $17 for a 3-day fishing license. Fish from Tampa Bay are generally low in mercury so yes you are able to eat them as long as they are of legal size. Tampa is on the Gulf of Mexico.

Tarpon Springs Fishing Charter Fun!

I had the honor of taking my highschool football coach and his family fishing. The day started a little slow but we ended it with a bang! Coach landed a 3' lesser Hammerhead shark a couple huge blue fish. His daughters and soon to be son inlaw started the day with gray grunts and grouper! it will be a trip i will hold near to my heart for a long time!  We've been fishing daily here in Tarpon springs on this fall Gulf bite! The fishing is fun, challenging, a bit cold, and fun! Did I say fun? It's fun! We are reeling in some fun and unique hammerhead sharks, shown in the video and photos attached, redfish, some bottom feeders... grouper and grunts, prepping for crabbing trips and so much more! We would be happy to have you on our next charter in Tarpon Springs!

July '22 Child-Friendly Fishing Trip

We had several trips with kids on board. Our latest trip was amazing! Despite the rains moving in and ending our day earlier than expected, we still managed to land some pompano. Nice to see the smiles on the kids faces!
