Storymaker Fishing Charters

Storymaker Fishing Charters is a locally owned and operated Tampa Bay fishing charter. Join Captain Rob on a fishing adventure and see why decades of experience and a personal attitude make all the difference for an enjoyable - and productive - fishing trip.

Your trip will take place aboard Captain Rob’s 2019 SX240 Skeeter full tower boat. Measuring 24 ft, this roomy boat gives a comfortable ride to up to four guests. With a T-top for protection on sunny days and a full range of navigation and safety gear, it has all the additions you need to find the places where the fish like to hide. Get between fishing spots in no time thanks to the boat’s 300 HP Yamaha motor and make the most of your day on the water.

Storymaker Fishing Charters is ready and waiting to show you how good inshore and nearshore fishing can be in the area. Captain Rob has been fishing the local waters for over thirty years and has a whole arsenal of techniques that will be put to use on the day of your trip. Whether you want to hunt for Redfish in the back bays, search for Snook on a summer evening, bottom fish for tasty and colorful Snappers and Groupers, or tackle Tampa Bay’s number one sportfish - the Silver King, or Tarpon, he has the gear and expertise to get you hooked up.

The use of high quality rods and reels is included in the price of every trip, so there is no need to bring your own gear. And at the end of the day, Captain Rob will clean and fillet any fish that you would like to keep (according to local rules and regulations, of course).

Book today for fun on the water and a great attitude!

I'm a local born in raised in the Tampa Bay Area, and have been working on charter and private boats since high school. I have always been surrounded by water living in Pinellas County. I started fishing as a young boy and love having the ability to enjoy the beautiful waters from sunrise to sunset
