Florida Reels Fishing Charters invites you to join Captain Christopher for a Tampa Bay fishing adventure out of Riverview, Florida. Tampa is home to some of the world’s most pristine waterways that hold many species of sport fish. Captain Christopher Taylor offers four, six, and eight-hour trips in the inshore waters, as well as the flats and the backcountry.

Stepping aboard Captain Christopher’s 21’ Clearwater center console, you will get to the fishing ground very quickly. The vessel is powered by a 115 HP Suzuki engine with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots and is able to accommodate up to 4 guests. It holds all the USCG-approved safety gear and Captain Christopher is CPR-trained. The vessel features a GPS and a fishfinder which are used to locate the productive spots, a livewell for the baits, and an ice box for the catch.

Anglers from all over travel to Tampa Bay to fish for Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, Snapper, Kingfish, sharks, Cobia, and more. These waters are abundant with fish year-round, which means no matter what season you go out, there is always something biting under the blue line.

Florida Reels Fishing Charters offers family-friendly charters and is suitable for beginners and experienced anglers looking for a challenge. Captain Christopher provides all the fishing gear including rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, ice, and a fishing license. If you want to have your catch for dinner, Captain Christopher can clean and fillet your fish, so make sure you bring a cooler!

All you have to do now is block out a date in the captain’s calendar, get your fishing group together, and start counting down the days until your next adventure!
