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 Bradenton, 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.

Started our trip off earlier because it heats up quick here in the Summer. Captain Colby did a great job taking us to a few different spots. He was helping us left and right making sure we had a great experience. I would totally use him again!

We caught so many species with Capt. Colby. We caught tarpon, trout, jacks, snapper, and lots of snook. He had a ton of great live baits and nice equipment. We will definitely book again.
