Discover the incredible inshore and nearshore waters of the Tampa Bay with Awestruck Fishing Charters. Capt. Phil Dyer is a native to the area. He knows these waters like the back of his hand, and his local knowledge will prove invaluable as you hit all the sweet spots in search of strong and delicious fish.
Step aboard the 25’ VIP bay boat for the trip of a lifetime. Ideal for fishing these shallow waters, she has plenty of space for up to 6 guests to fish at the same time. The 225 HP Yamaha engine will whizz you up to speeds of 40 knots as you chase the fish, while the wireless trolling motor will keep you afloat and quiet as you creep up on your target fish in the skinny waters.
Explore the productive inshore backwaters and flats of the Tampa Bay. Home to a range of both strong and delicious fish, you’ll sight cast using live bait. Get ready for an intense workout as you battle it out with a Snook or Redfish. While landing a Sheepshead, Flounder, or Trout will have you safe in the knowledge that dinner is sorted.
On longer trips, you’ll have the chance to head up to 9 miles offshore, fishing the nearshore reefs and wrecks. The Gulf is known all over the world for its diversity of fish and you’ll have them all to yourself. From Snappers and Groupers, to Barracuda, Amberjack, Cobia, and many more – there’ll be no shortage of exciting fish to catch.
During the Tarpon season, Capt. Phil will take you on specialized trips in search of the “Silver King.” See for yourself why this beast is revered all over the world, as it gives you the fight of your life, leaping out of the water to get off the end of your line.
Everything you need for a productive day on the water is provided, while your captain will even clean and prepare your catch at the end of the day. All you need to do is bring some snacks and drinks aboard, and get ready for an amazing day out with Awestruck Fishing Charters. These waters won’t fish themselves, so they’re calling your name!
