Captain Will owns and operates Fish Tampa Flats Charters. A light tackle inshore fishing specialist with 10 years of experience, he provides every charter with world class instruction on fishing the waters of Tampa, from the saltwater backcountry to some of the most pristine flats fishing there is. Any charter can be customized to any age group or skill level if needed.
During your trip you will be fishing aboard a custom built 24 ft boat by Shoalwater boats. This technical vessel was designed to access extremely shallow waters that other boats have problems getting to, while also keeping you dry in rougher water. It is fully equipped will all the latest features for inshore fishing, with two Minn Kota shallow water anchors, as well as a Minn Kota iPilot trolling motor that will allow you to go after the spookiest of fish without disturbing them. There is also a spacious livewell that has plenty of space for all the bait you will need for your trip, as well as comfortable seating.
Capt. Will specializes in fishing for Snook, Trout, Redfish, and the world renowned Tarpon. He usually fishes with natural bait such as shrimp, pinfish, and whitebait, with cut bait also being an option. During the winter, he tends to use more artificial jigs, jerk baits, and topwater plugs for explosive fishing action.
A full assortment of rods, reels, lures, and bait will be provided for your use throughout the charter, and Capt. Will is also happy to clean and fillet your catch after the trip. All the fishing licenses for everyone in the group will also be sorted out by Fish Tampa Flats Charters, so all you need to bring is some snacks and beverages, and a cool box to take your catch home at the end of the day.

The kids had a blast with Captain Jack and were thrilled at their catch and the Captain’s effort to make sure everyone caught the desired fish. They can’t stop talking about how the fishing trip was the best part of our Florida vacation. Thanks Captain Jack!
