Capt. Tom Sportfishing

Capt. Tom Sportfishing is a charter based out of historic New Port Richey FL, offering anglers some of the finest fishing the West Coast of Florida has to offer! Captain Thomas Giamo, loves sharing his passion for fishing with people of all skill sets. From kids and beginners to seasoned anglers.

The captain’s boat of choice is a 23’ Ranger center console with enough room to accommodate 4 anglers fishing at the same time. The vessel features a variety of gear including a fishing chair for those long battles. There is also an icebox on board to store refreshments.

The different trips offered by Capt. Tom Sportfishing will allow everyone to find an adventure that suits their needs. Generally, shorter trips will allow you to get a taste for the local fishery and see what’s biting. On the other hand, if you’re after a specific fish, you’d get the best shot at it on longer trips.

All necessary equipment will be provided including Shimano rods and reels. Also included in the price of the trip are the fishing licenses and live bait, which is either bought or caught by the crew prior to the trip.  Kids all ages are welcome, however, life jackets are provided just for adults.

If spearfishing is your technique of choice, let the captain know ahead of the trip and he will accommodate you. Keep in mind that spearfishing equipment is not provided by the charter. Catch cleaning is done by the captain and is included in the price.

Come and see what Florida fishing is all about! Pack some drinks and snacks and meet Capt. Tom on the water!

I started fishing Florida waters when my family moved down here in July of 2002. I have been addicted to Saltwater fishing ever since and have spent the last 16 plus years fine-tuning and learning where the fish hide and what they want to eat. I spent most of my late teens and 20s working on Commercial fishing boats and Charter boats where I learned how to engage customers and make sure they had the best experience possible. Include in that an ability to find fish and we have the makings of a great day on the water. There is nothing better than taking someone out and watching them potentially catch the fish of a lifetime! This is the reason I chose to become a Capt. Let’s go fishing and experience the adventure together!
