Florida Reels Fishing Charters

37th Ave N and Poplar st
St. Petersburg FL, United States

Florida Reels Fishing Charters are located where Florida meets fishing - in Tampa Bay! The Tampa Bay estuary is loaded with the inshore sport fish everyone desires to catch, and most of the fish offer great table fare.

Enjoy a day loaded with sightseeing, boating, and fishing with a USCG licensed Captain Christopher Taylor. There is much to see in the way of wildlife above and below the water that Captain Christopher can show you. He has over 20 years of experience fishing the waters of Tampa Bay and will take you out for an experience that will last a lifetime!

You will fish aboard his 20 foot Starcraft Bay center console boat, powered by a 70 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. The speedy vessel will take you to the best and most productive fishing grounds easily and in style. It contains all the safety equipment and electronics you’ll need on the trip, as well as a live bait tank where you will store your baits until you get to the fishing grounds.

Florida Reels Fishing Charters will take you fishing for Black Drum, Cobia, Goliath Grouper, Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Black Seabass, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, Spotted Seatrout and the mighty fighter Tarpon.

You will have all the fishing gear provided by Captain Christopher, and he will happily clean your catch at the end of your trip so you can take it home for a nice dinner.

After a last minute cancellation by another charter company due to equipment issues, Capt Chris was able to take us on a great half-day trip that saved the weekend. Caught some monster redfish - Capt Chris really knows what he is doing.
