Let Insight Fishing Adventures make your next fishing trip an amazing one! Captain Tyler Jones has been fishing the Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico for over 20 years. He knows the waters well and strives to bring his clients to where the fishing is hot. Let him help you catch a fish of a lifetime.

You’ll be fishing from a 21’ Skeeter boat that accommodates up to four guests. The boat is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and ensures a smooth ride to your fishing spot. This center console features a live bait tank, navigational electronics, and a cooler for your drinks and snacks. There’s lots of storage space for your belongings and, per request, the captain can also prepare snorkeling equipment.

You can choose between the lethargic Redfish and monster Snook on the flats, to the monster Sharks and Tarpon caught off the beach. You can also go after Mangrove Snapper and Spotted Seatrout. The biggest plus of these trips is that you don’t need previous experience. Even if you’re holding a rod for the first time, you’re bound to have a great time.

The captain will cover your fishing equipment, bait, and drinks. Pickup is available if you’re up to 10 miles away from the marina, just get in touch in advance.

Go fishing with Insight Fishing Adventures and catch some tasty fish!

I grew up in the Clearwater area commercial fishing with my father and As I got older I began to adhere and use my knowledge to branch out and use the skills I’d learned to make my own living. I figured why not make money Doing what I love! The adrenaline rush makes me enjoy what I do!
