Join Prime Time Fishing Charters and spend an exciting day on the water. Captain Evan Soudijn specializes in fishing the waters of the lower Tampa Bay region. He offers family-friendly trips that welcome anglers of all skill levels. Even if you’ve never fished before, you’ll have lots of fun and end the day with a few trophies of your own in the bucket.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 24’ T Craft boat that accommodates up to 4 anglers. She’s powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and a cooler. This center console offers a safe and reliable ride at all times.

You’ll mostly explore inshore spots and flats that offer a chance to target Redfish, Trout, and Snook. From May till the beginning of July there are special Tarpon trips available. This hard-fighting fish is the king of the shallow water and it won’t let you catch it that easily. Test your strength and patience with the Silver King and earn your bragging rights.

The captain specializes in using light tackle with live bait and it’s all prepared in advance and included in the price. Your fishing licenses and bottled water are also included but feel free to bring other beverages and snacks.

Prime Time Fishing Charters offers the action that never stops. The trips are available year round, so you only need to pick a date that fits your schedule.

I have been fishing the waters of Tampa Bay since I was 11. I fell in love with the fishery here in Tampa Bay and have always wanted others to catch some of the most prized species this region has to offer.
