Sports Coast Inshore Charters

Come enjoy a fun and exciting day on the beautiful waters of Pasco County with Sports Coast Inshore Charters! Captain Brian Harris grew up on these waters, so he knows the best grounds for productive fishing.

You’ll go out on the brand new 24’ Tidewater bay boat, powered by a Yamaha 250 HP engine. It will get you to the richest honey holes in no time! The boat can accommodate up to 8 people, but 5 can fish at a time.

Try reeling in some of the most prized fish of the area. You’ll be using Penn rods and reels, provided by Capt. Brian. Live bait will be caught before the trip, so everything will be ready when you arrive. Capt. Brian will make sure to clean your catch at the docks upon your return, and he’ll pack it up so that you can take it home for dinner.

Depending on the trip you choose, you’ll target some inshore species like Redfish, Trout, Snook, Snapper, and Spanish Mackerel. If you go a little further offshore, you can target King Mackerel and Gag Grouper. If the Silver King is one of your bucket list species, you can target it on one of the specialized Tarpon trips.

You can also experience scalloping in this natural area, as well as going on a snorkeling adventure. There’s snorkeling equipment on the boat, so you can ask your captain to do it on any trip.

This can be a fun family experience, making some great memories your kids will remember forever! Children older than 5 are welcome aboard, and there are life jackets for their safety.

Your captain will have snacks and drinks for you, and there’s a large cooler on board, so don’t hesitate to bring your own food and drinks. Make sure to bring a hat and some sunscreen so you can have an enjoyable time on the water.

Join Sports Coast Inshore Charters for a memorable adventure on the waters of Pasco County!

Captain Brian is a local and he has been fishing since he was 8 years old. He decided to pursue his passion, and recently became a licensed captain. Fishing is what he loves most, and he enjoys being able to take out people who can’t fish on their own or don’t have the knowledge to do so. He really enjoys giving people a great experience, and nothing makes him happier than the smiles on people's faces when they catch a prized fish. He is also a firefighter. He’s been firefighter-paramedic for 6 years. He participated in the First Responder Games tournament for firefighters, police, and military. Last time his team placed 4th. "I have been fishing since I can remember, and I grew up fishing with family and friends. I lived in Pasco County my entire life and know the waters like my own backyard."
