Description

Captain Colby Flinn offers inshore and nearshore charter trips from Tampa Bay to Sarasota Bay and up to nine miles offshore. He has over twenty years experience fishing this area and is well equipped to guide you to the hottest fishing spots around Holmes Beach, Florida.

During your charter trip you will be fishing aboard a 23 ft Parker Saltwater fishing boat that has been recently restored to make sure it is in the best condition for charter trips. Featuring a 250 HP Yamaha four stroke motor, the boat will take you to the best fishing spots in no time, and its full complement of marine electronics will aid your captain in finding the fish.

Depending on the trip you choose, you could explore the inshore bays and backwaters for Redfish, Snook, and Trout, or venture offshore to tackle Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Kingfish and more at the nearshore wrecks and reefs. Captain Colby also offers specialist Tarpon trips during Tarpon season, which usually runs from late April to early September.

We had a great Father and sons day, all made better with Captain Colby , a really tallented captain and most of all a true fishermen. Tide or weather he knows where and how to fish, others can only copy his watercraft and local knowledge.  So when we come again , no question who we’ll call. Thanks from all the Naylor Boys. ..A red letter day.

Great trip. Boat captain is a local who grew up in the area and knows where to find the fish. He’s also great with kids.
