Description

If you are looking for an enjoyable fishing experience in Tampa Bay you should look no further than Fishhwak Charters’ Contender center console, an ideal vessel for avid fishermen or those who want a big fishing experience on a smaller boat.

The 28 ft Contender boat will give you a dry and stable ride in the Bay and its surrounding waters. Powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha engines, the boat can move very quickly between fishing spots, and it features top of the range electronics by Raymarine to find the best areas to wet your line. The boat has a T-top for shade and it features an enclosed toilet for the ladies. On board, you will find an icebox and a Yeti cooler full of ice cold water to keep you refreshed throughout the trip, and there is also a large live bait tank.

During your trip you will be targeting whatever seasonal species are biting the best, with the techniques used and species targeted also depending on your experience level and what you most want to get out of your trip. Whether you want to go after Tarpon or Cobia (in season), or tackle tasty Snappers and Groupers, Fishhawk Charters will provide the gear and expert advice you need to hook your target fish.

Good quality rods and reels are included in the trip price, and so are bait and lures. The crew will also carefully clean, de-bone, and bag any legal fish you would like to take home with you after the trip .
