Your trip comes inclusive with all the necessary equipment to make an outstanding catch possible. That includes rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait.

Captain Tony Zain first started fishing with his grandpa in Northern Michigan at the age of 5. After personally testing virtually all of the most celebrated hotspots in the US, he finally settled down in what he considers to be the ultimate fish heaven – the Tampa Bay waterways. Capt. Tony has had the privilege to guide fishing charters in many places throughout the country, and fishing in the bay area is by far his favorite!
