Clearwater FL, United States

Prime Tide charters is the number one guide service in the Tampa Bay area. Run by Captain Austin Mcwhorter, Prime Tide offers fishing charters on the nearshore, intercoastal waterways, and grass flats around Clearwater Beach, as well as inshore trips in North Tampa Bay. Trips in Clearwater depart from the Baithouse Tackle and Tavern located in the Clearwater Marina. Trips in Tampa Bay will depart from the Cove Cay Marina located on the west side of Tampa Bay. From the shallow flats to the offshore ledges and reefs, Captain Austin has the knowledge and the equipment to put you on the best bite possible.

Charters are run on a brand new 2014 22ft Blackjack Bayboat powered by a Yamaha 250 four stroke. It has a shallow draft to fish the shallower inshore areas and a sharp entry to cut through the chop when running offshore. It has an exceptionally dry and stable ride. It is equipped with all the required USCG rated safety gear including an EPIRB. It is also rigged out with the newest and up to date electronics to precisely put you on the fish and keep you safe. This includes a Lowrance HDS bottom machine with satellite weather overlay to help navigate those afternoon Florida thunderstorms. It also includes vhf radio, powerpole, trolling motor, two livewells, and seating for six, plenty of storage, and a cooler for drinks and food.

About the Captain

Austin McWhorter
Clearwater, Florida, United States
Member since December 2014
Living in Florida, I grew a passion towards fishing. It was something I thoroughly enjoyed doing from a young age and always dreamed of doing it for a full time job. I began working at The Baithouse tackle and Tavern in 2010 and was then given the opportunity to start my fishing business. Having The Baithouse as a platform to run my charters out of, gave me the chance to turn my passion into my career and that is something I am thankful for everyday. Being able to give people the experience of catching trophy fish is what it is all about for me.

Austin knew where to go and how to get us the fish!  He is obviously well experienced in the area and a pro at fishing. We left on a big high and we are eating our redfish as I type this.

Austin did a great job putting us on the fish, at one point we had a double hook up. Will definitely be booking again to get those redfish. Clean boat and top notch equipment.
