Everything you need for a productive day out on the water will be provided. That includes Shimano rods, St. Croix reels, and a variety of quality tackle. Capt. Brock is also happy to clean and fillet your catch at the end up of the trip. Head on down for a productive day in these diverse waters with Tarpon Coast Fishing Charters!
