A Horizon Fishing Charters

Breathtaking scenery and even better fishing await you on Lake Tarpon. Head out from Tarpon Springs with A Horizon Fishing Charters and target some of the nation’s favorite freshwater game fish. Captain Brent Kirkendall is a lifelong angler, and has now made it as a professional fisherman. He’s a regular at tournaments for Bass and other species, so you know you’re in the best hands to catch plenty of fish.

You couldn’t wish for a better boat than the 20’ Javelin bass boat to fish these waters. Specifically designed with lake fishing and catching Bass in mind, you’ll have perfect vision of your target fish, plenty of space to battle it out, all the while staying steady on the water. Powered by a 150 HP Johnson engine, you’ll speed off to the sweet spots, while the wireless trolling motor will help you navigate the shallow waters.

Try spinning, jigging, and even use artificial poppers to attract the bite of exhilarating Largemouth Bass and beautiful Crappie, or sit back and troll when near the deeper spots. There’s plenty of Daiwa and Shimano equipment on board for everyone to fish, along with enough artificial lures to keep you going. Discuss with your captain prior to the trip if you’d like to purchase some live bait.

Capt. Brent can’t wait to welcome you and up to 2 other guests aboard for an incredible day of fishing. Bring your own drinks and snacks and store them in the captain’s cooler, and sit back, play your tunes through the multimedia system, and wait for the bite of these incredible fish. Start your adventure here with A Horizon Fishing Charters.

Growing up with a rod in both his hands, Captain Brent has been on the water his whole life. He's worked hard to be able to maintain his passion as a profession and regularly competes in tournaments alongside his work running charters. He placed in the top 20 out of 200 in the state's BASS national tournament, so knows exactly how to catch the biggest and best fish. However, Capt. Brent insists that running charters is the highlight of the job, passing on his love for fishing to each and every customer.
