Join Bearded Angler Fishing Adventures in Tampa, Florida and experience the thrill of inshore and backcountry fishing! Captain Michael Flaschenriem is a fishing guru who has devoted most of his life to the sport, so you can expect nothing less than an expert angler and experienced teacher.
His custom 16’ Gheenoe flats boat is exactly what you want for fishing in shallow waters. The boat has no problem drafting in 5” water, allowing you to get into places most boats can’t. The boat also comes with a custom poling platform, used for silent stalking, and a 45 lb thrust trolling motor so you can cover larger distances quietly.
Because of its size, Capt. Michael prefers taking 1 adult passenger at a time. By focusing on solo trips, he’s able to devote 100% of his time to working 1-on-1 with the client in order to help them become a better angler. However, in certain circumstances, he may be able to accommodate taking 2 adult passengers or 1 adult with a child. Capt. Michael is an incredible teacher and welcomes kids of all ages on board, as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
By being able to slip into some of the narrowest and shallowest waters, you’ll be able to target a range of different species. You’ll encounter Snook, Redfish, and Cobia, as well as Mangrove Snapper and Sheepshead. When it’s all said and done, have your catch cleaned and filleted so you can take it home for a delicious supper!
Rods, reels, live bait, and lures are all provided so you don’t have to worry about lugging around your own equipment. Capt. Michael will also supply your fishing license, so you can get right to the fun part as soon as you arrive!
There’s always water and ice on board, but feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks. Bring comfortable clothing, sunglasses, a hat, and a camera to capture some special moments. Everything is taken care of, so all that’s left to do is book your trip and get ready for a fun day with Bearded Angler Fishing Adventures!
