Tampa Rod & Bowfishing Charters
One of our top picks in Tampa. Tampa Rod & Bowfishing Charters is quite simply the best place to go if you are looking for some awesome inshore action, pitting your wits and your eyes against fast-moving fish in the murky shallows around the famous Tampa Bay. Fish either in the day or the night, using traditional rods and reels, or a style of fishing which has seen a surge in popularity over the past few year due to the sheer thrill it offers - bowfishing!
Captain Ike Carrasquillo’s 25’ Sea Chaser center console has been set up specifically for exciting inshore fishing. A cruising speed of over 50 knots rockets you off you to the very best spots, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and a trolling motor and power poles let you sneak through the shallows without spooking the fish once you get there. Night fishing? No problem! The boat has an array of super-bright flood lamps to light up even the most starless night, and her high-tech electronics can sound out the murky waters below no matter the conditions.
Captain Ike is a second generation captain who has been running charters for over 20 years. He has developed a true passion for bowfishing, and now specializes in this hands-on form of the sport. Before every trip, he will make sure everyone is comfortable handling and using the equipment, and once out on the water, he will be constantly on hand to offer his top tips and tricks, and to make sure you hit your target (almost) every time!
Every Tampa Bowfishing Charters trip comes with all the necessary equipment for either style of fishing, although you are of course welcome to bring your own if you prefer. Fishing licenses are also provided by the boat, and there is a cooler for any food and drink you bring, so all you need to do is turn up. At the end of the trip, Captain Ike will clean and fillet all your catch for you, ready to take home and enjoy, because with this level of action, you are bound to work up an appetite!
