Flats Fanatic Charters takes you to the best parts of Tampa Bay! This unique area lets you target a variety of species in just a few minutes out of the marina. Your guide and host on this trip is Captain Ray, a Florida native and the 4th generation of fishermen in his family. He has over 20 years of professional fishing experience, both as a guide and a tournament competitor. Capt. Ray welcomes anglers of all skill levels on his boat.
And the boat is a 24’ Pathfinder that accommodates up to 3 guests. This bay boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine and reaches the speed of 35 knots. There’s also a wireless trolling engine, so you can move in quiet, without disturbing the fish. The boat features navigational electronics and a live bait tank.
The fish you can target depends on the time of year your trip takes place. But rest assured, there’s always something that will fill your bags to the top. You can go after Black Drum, Redfish, Snook, Mackerel, Trout, Cobia, Flounder, and Tarpon. You get to keep the catch and the captain will clean it for you free of charge.
All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. You only need to pack your food, drinks, and sun protection. And don’t forget to charge your phone, as there will be lots of interesting wildlife you’ll want to photograph, such as porpoises, manatees, migrating birds, and more.
Flats Fanatic Charters runs trips year round. The only question is: When are you coming?
