Reel Therapy Fishing Charters

5210 W Tyson Ave
Tampa FL, United States

Reel Therapy Charters is operated by Captain Mike, welcoming all anglers for a day filled with light tackle excitement in the productive waters of Tampa Bay. The west coast of Florida is home to some of the best inshore fishing around, and with more than 25 years of fishing experience in the area, Michael is confident he knows where and how to catch fish.

A variety of game fish species frequent the The Tampa Bay area, including but not limited to Snook, Sea Trout, Redfish, Cobia, Tarpon, Snapper, sharks and many more. However, these excursions are often about more than just catching the ‘Bay’s bounty’ - you’ll also get a glimpse of a variety of animals inhabiting this ecosystem, living in or around it. It is not uncommon to come across anything from bottle-nosed dolphins and manatees, to pelicans, ospreys, flamingos, cranes and many other species.

Apart from enjoying fishing and sightseeing, there’s also a possibility of visiting some of the unspoiled islands and beaches such as Paradise Islands, Ft. De Soto State Park, Key State Park and others. Visitors can indulge themselves in various activities, whether it’s swimming and snorkeling in the Gulf, exploring the shore or just taking a break on the beach and posing for a memorable photo-op.

On top of all these activities, there are also several quality waterfront restaurants that you can stop at on your way for lunch or just a quick drink. Captain Michael is happy to tailor your day in the Bay based on your own personal preferences. His primary goal is to make the experience enjoyable and unforgettable for you and your group.

Rates includes ice, tackle, live and artificial bait, fishing licenses, pictures, sunscreen and a crew with more than 25 years of experience on Tampa Bay waters. Not included are food and drinks (alcohol is permitted). At the end of your trip, your fish will be cleaned and iced.

Hello, everyone! I grew up in Gulfport, Florida, in a small fishing town just minutes away from Boca Ciega Bay and the Gulf. I've been fishing ever since I can remember, whether it's 15 minutes before school or all day every day in the summer.
