Capt. Evan Denis Charters

Bask in the fishing glory of the Florida Suncoast. Explore the rich and diverse inshore waters just out of Clearwater with Capt. Evan Denis Charters. Test your skills against exceptional game fish and try to catch yourself something tasty to take home. A native to the Tampa Bay area, Capt. Evan knows every corner of these productive waters. Tarpon fishing is his true passion, so join him for a specialized “Silver King” trip.

The 23’ Dorado bay boat is the perfect vessel to navigate these shallow waters. Equipped with a fishfinder, GPS, and VHF radio, you’ll find the sweet spots without any trouble. Powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine, the boat will whizz across the open waters, before the wireless trolling motor kicks in along the skinny waters. You’ll creep up quietly on your target, catching them off-guard, before hooking ‘em aboard.

Whatever you target, you’re in for a thrilling day. Typically, you’ll have the pick of tough-fighting Snook, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and many other prized fish. Using live bait on the end of light tackle, get ready for a struggle throughout, with great rewards! Keep in mind inshore trips are mostly catch and release.

Bottled waters and a cooler filled with ice will be provided during the trip, but Capt. Evan encourages you to bring your own food and drinks aboard to stay refreshed all day long. He’ll also pick you up anywhere on the water! What are you waiting for? Capt. Evan Denis Charters is calling you aboard for a fun and productive day’s fishing.

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Growing up in the Tampa Bay area, I have always been around or on the water. Inshore and Tarpon fishing are my true passion and I love every minute while I'm out on the water. I got my captain's license in 2017 and helped mate and run a larger boat for offshore fishing trips and always knew I wanted to guide people to their next trophy catch inshore.
