Long Arm Legend Fishing Charters

Right in the heart of Tampa Bay, Long Arm Legend Fishing Charters can take you on an unforgettable fishing adventure. Captain Kristopher has been fishing this his whole life and there’s no good fishing spot he doesn’t know of. He welcomes both experienced anglers and complete novices, so join regardless of your skill at the moment. Your captain is here to make you a better fisherman.

You’ll be fishing from a 23’ Carolina skiff that’s perfect for the local flats and backcountry. This center console offers a stable and comfortable ride, being powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine. Equipped with the latest navigational electronics, safety equipment, a live bait tank, and a cooler, you’ve got everything you need for your day out. There’s enough room for 4 guests to fish at the same time.

If you want a more challenging trip and put an extra effort into learning new techniques, you can be joined by the first mate, who’ll make sure everything is set up.

There’s lots of fish species that call these waters home, so you can land Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Flounder, Mackerel, and more. Most of them are a delicacy, so it’s no surprise why so many guests want to keep the catch after the trip. The bonus part is that the captain cleans and fillets your fish, so you could enjoy the taste of it within an hour after leaving the boat.

Your fishing equipment, licenses, and fresh water are covered. You only need to bring your snacks, sunglasses, and a hat.

Long Arm Legend Fishing Charters will make your day in Tampa Bay a true adventure! And this is only a few clicks away.
