Hit The Water Charters

5108 West Gandy Boulevard
Tampa FL, United States

Hit The Water Charter is dedicated one hundred per cent to having an amazing and unforgettable fishing adventure each time they go out on the water with their guests. They do it by picking the best possible fishing spots in the wonderfully fish-rich shallow waters of Tampa Bay and West Florida. The charter is operated by Captain Sean Peters who has over 20 years of fishing experience in Florida, and who loves passing on his knowledge of the fish species, the area and the marine life.

You will fish aboard his 23 foot Ranger center console boat which was built in 2010 and has a capacity for 4 guests. It is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha V6 Four Stroke engine with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots that makes it very fast and stable on the shallow waters. The boat is equipped with a GOS, a VHF radio and an excellent fishfinder to locate the schools of fish. The boat also has a live bait tank, an anchoring system, and all the safety features including life jackets and flares.

Hit The Water Charters will take you fishing in the estuaries and flats around Tampa Bay and surrounding area. You will target species such as the super delicious Flounder, Redfish, Snook, Mangrove Snapper and Spotted Seatrout, and you can even catch the great performer Tarpon which will sure put up a show for you, leaping into the air and giving you a good fight. Captain Sean will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, a fishing license and will happily clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip so you can take it home for dinner.
