Capt. Chris Camps Triple C Charters invites you to explore Tampa Bay, the ‘Fishing Capital of the World.’ Enjoy a world-class fishery, the area’s pristine waterways, shallow grass flats, sugar sand beaches, passes, open bays, and mangrove-lined backcountry. Let Capt. Chris put his talent to work for you!

Whether you are lucky to live in Florida or just planning a visit, there is hardly a more exciting way to spend your day than fishing around the Tampa Bay Area. Capt. Chris has been mastering the local waters for all his life and knows the local way of fishing. He will put you, your family, friends, or clients in the best possible position to have an entertaining and safe journey through the waters.

On a day out with Triple C Charters, you will be fishing with live and artificial bait, as well as catching fish with a fly. The list of your potential catches will include the area’s many highly sought-after species, such as Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Cobia, and Trout. As well as that, you might be on the hunt for Kingfish, Sharks, Mackerel, Snapper, and Grouper depending on the time of year.

Whether you are a novice or seasoned angler, Capt. Chris has the experience, knowledge, and outgoing personality to ensure that your day on the water will be fun, memorable and safe. He will greet you with a warm welcome aboard a 21’ Shearwater center console.

The boat comes powered by a single 150 HP Yamaha engine and can comfortably take up to four anglers. It is fully rigged with latest navigational and fish finding electronics, as well as other professional accessories and tools.

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You will only need to bring your own equipment if you are interested in fly fishing.
