Charlton’s Reef Charters
, FL 33611, United States
Charlton’s Reef Charters offers flats and deep water fishing in the pristine waters of the Tampa Bay area. Join Capt. Tom for a fun and productive day on the water. He is on the water 7 days a week and knows where and how to put you on fish!
Capt. Tom specializes in taking his clients to the hottest spots that produce Snook, Speckled Trout, and Redfish. However, if you are after something bigger, just let the captain know. He will take you to deeper water, where you get your hands on Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, and Tarpon.
Charlton’s Reef Charters tailor their trips to the tides and weather conditions. If you are planning a trip to the nearshore waters to catch Grouper and Snapper but the weather is not cooperating, don’t worry. Check the honey holes closer to shore and get a healthy dose of drag pulling enjoyment. The opportunities abound!
Even if you have never held a fishing rod in your hand and don’t know what species patrol the waters of Tampa Bay, Capt. Tom will show you the ropes. He will guide you through the basics before you make the first cast. On your day out, you will be able to come close and personal with Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, and many more.
Capt. Tom will arm you with quality fishing rods, reels, and tackle. You will be using frozen and live bait to make that catch of the day possible. When you return to shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan. Just bring along some appropriate clothes and your own snacks.
You will be exploring the Tampa’s waters aboard a 20’ Mako Marine center console. This is a newly uphauled fishing machine which comes powered by a 150 HP Tohatsu engine. There is plenty of fishing space for you and two fishing buddies. All aboard!
Please note that children must be at least 6 years old. Clients should wear appropriate footwear (non-marking tennis shoes, hiking sandals). Flip flops, beach sandals, and bare feet are not safe as clients may slip and fall.

Tom was very nice, but my son was very specific about the type of fish he was interested in fishing for, which Tom agreed to in communications. Tom didn’t bring the equipment necessary to fish for any of the requested kinds (redfish, snook, and tarpon) and instead took them fishing for grouper. We were scheduled for an entire day but cut the day in half and the boys left frustrated. I hate to leave this review, because he was a very nice guy, but this was supposed to be the highlight of their graduation celebration trip and it ended up being a big let down.
