See first hand why Tampa Bay is considered to be home to some of the best fishing in the whole of the United States. Licensed guides Scott Sebor and Joe Raines are waiting to take you on an action packed fishing adventure that is fun for the whole family. With over 16 years combined experienced, the duo know what it takes to put you on fish!

You will be fishing aboard a well equipped 20 ft Sportsman center console boat that can accommodate up to four anglers. With kids always fishing for free with Head First Fishing Adventures, this is the perfect set-up for a fun filled family outing.

A huge variety of species call Tampa Bay home, meaning there is always something to catch! On a trip with captains Scott and Joe you could expect to land a range of fish, such as Redfish, Snook, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Cobia, Flounder, Snapper, and Grouper. Jigging, popping, fly fishing, spin fishing, and conventional light tackle fishing are all techniques that could be used on your trip, depending on the fish you want to target and what you want to do.

Both hardcore anglers and newbies are welcome aboard with Head First Fishing. The guides consider giving people awesome fishing experiences to be their main reward, and they love to see the look on peoples’ faces when they hook their first fish or boat their fish of a lifetime.

I've been fishing my whole life, and the Gulf of Mexico for most of that. I became a captain to work in both the recreational and commercial sides of boating. Watching our guests reel in big exciting fish is very rewarding for me. We know you book with trusted professionals in order to increase your chances of having the trip of a lifetime. We work hard to bring you a memorable trip that you will be talking about for years to come.

Joe and Scott made a great team to serve up a fantastic day of fishing, whether we were island hopping targeting Snook, running and gunning for Spanish Mackerel or dock bombing for Grouper or the occasional Egret (long story, ask Joe) We had a tremendous day and the gear and bait were right there. No waiting on stuff to be rigged and a first class ride on their 20’ boat (Almost new too!)

Harley, it was a great day for sure! We had fun watching you fight that nice snook. I knew you wanted that the most! The mackerel bite only gets better from here.

We strive to provide a great trip that provides big value for the dollar. We hope you can get back down this fall for the King Mackerel run. Keep in touch!

We had a family fishing trip which was second to none!  I took my two boys out for the day and they had the best time ever!  The crew were amazing and so good with the children.  They really are a great asset to the fishing trip industry!  We would have no hesitation in recommending Head First Fishing Adventures.

We had such a great time. They were all about making it a memorable experience for my son. They were all about making sure he was able to catch fish. They were very helpful and informative and very friendly. We will definitely be booking with them again. I would recommend them to everyone!

Thank you for the great review. It was exciting to see your son catch all those different types of fish. We’re still wondering what it was that almost took the rod from his hands.
