Inshore Society - Nautic Star

Inshore Society is a professional guide service with decades of experience of fishing the productive waters of Tampa Bay. This area is famous for its amazing year round fishery, where light tackle, shallow water and artificial lures combine to make absolutely unforgettable fishing. Join Florida Guides Association members Capt. Kenny Smith and Capt. Christian Minami and get ready for some explosive strikes and drag pulling enjoyment.

You will be fishing aboard a 24 ft Nautic Star boat, a vessel that has been designed specifically for perusing the inshore waters in search of the area’s finest game fish. The boat comes fitted with a 200 HP Yamaha engine to get it to the best spots in no time, while its Minn Kota trolling motor will get you cruising up to the best fishing spots in full stealth mode. With room for up to four people, the Nautic Star will keep you and your belongings safe and dry on the water.

Arm yourself with top of the range light spinning tackle by Penn and Shimano (all rigged and prepared in advance by the crew) and get ready to come close and personal with some of the most sought-after fish in Western Florida. Snook, Speckled Trout, and Redfish are all ready to be lured in, while Jack Crevalle, Spanish Mackerel, Mangrove Snapper and more could also find their way onto the end of your line and on the dinner table.

As they prepare for your trip, Inshore Society’s crew will load the boat with live bait and a selection of artificial lures, depending on the conditions and your preferences. They will get all the tackle ready for you and fill up the cooler with ice, soft drinks and some light snacks. Just bring along some polarized sunglasses for the best view of your target fish and get ready for a day to remember!

Join us, Capt. Cristian Minami and Capt. Kenny Smith, on an inshore fishing charter in the Tampa Bay area. Growing up in Tampa Bay, fishing became our passion at a young age. Participating in local fishing tournaments and fishing events brought us closer to the fishing industry. As we got older and gained more experienced on the water we decided to get our Captains Licenses and started Inshore Society LLC, a fishing charter company directed at guiding anglers in the Tampa Bay area. Our main focus as a charter Captain is to provide clients with a once in a lifetime fishing experience that will be memorable for the rest of their life.
