About the Captain

Tom Bailas
Nokomis, Florida, United States
Member since May 2015
I was a born captain. Growing up on the east coast, I was fishing as a young child and then started to fish all the tournaments. I became a captain to teach others to fish and have them enjoy all the fun and exciting times that it has to offer. We currently fish The Kingfish Tournament Series where we regularly place in the top 3.

Great day of fishing with a captain that really knows what he’s doing and is a great guy as well.  We had an incredible day and caught a ton of fish.  I would highly recommend Tom’s operation.

Despite the challenging conditions of a full moon and heavy overnight rain, Captain Tom and Trisha put us right on the fish from the first cast, hauling a wide variety of species.

My wife and two boys received excellent guidance from the skipper and we all caught plenty of fish.

Our session ended with an hours trawling for Barracuda resulting in my boys catching a 20lb fish and a smile/memory that will last a long time.

I can thoroughly recommend chartering TNT and Captain Tom. Thanks for a great trip.
