Tampa FL, United States

A day out on the Tampa Bay flats is a dream come true for any shallow water fishing enthusiast. Captain Brandon Henley specializes in introducing his clients and friends to the finest angling opportunities the area has to offer, putting them on top of the hottest bite.

Explore mangrove shorelines that surround the Bay. Target a variety of saltwater game fish species in one of the best inshore fishing areas on the planet. You will be able to go for Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Seatrout, Cobia, and Permit.

Tampa Flats Fishing Charters can cater to both novice and advanced anglers and can tailor the trip in your specific needs. Whether you are into fly fishing or want to fish with light tackle, top-notch equipment will be provided for you to use on your trip. Capt. Brandon will assist you throughout the adventure and will help you catch Tarpon on a fly, cast for Snook in the mangroves, or sight fish for tailing Reds on the flats. Whatever you decide to go for, he will help you make most of your adventure.

You will be fishing on an 18’ Maverick flats boat, a recently built boat with a single 115 HP Yamaha engine. This vessel can comfortably accommodate up to 3 anglers and is outfitted with a GPS and a fishfinder to aid your search for the big one.

All trips with Tampa Flats Fishing Charters are all-inclusive. You will be provided with fly fishing and conventional gear, bait, lures, licenses, and drinks, as well as a complimentary fish cleaning service.
