Capt. Chet Jennings Sport Fishing Charters

Capt. Chet Jennings Sport Fishing Charters invites you to join him on a fishing adventure of a lifetime in the abundant waters of Tampa Bay, Florida. Captain Chet has fished Tampa Bay for over 20 years and wants to share with you the great fish Tampa Bay has to offer.

Your trip to the inshore waters can see you targeting the Silver King - Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, and other species. You can also target Sharks such as Blacktip and Bonnethead, which put up a great fight and make your muscles sore but are worth every ounce of energy you invest in reeling them in.

Alternatively, you can fish the nearshore waters for Jack Crevalle, Cobia, Mangrove Snapper, Kingfish and more. All you have to do is let captain Chet know which species are on your bucket list and he’ll take you to the best spot where you can fish for them.

Capt. Chet operates a fully custom rigged 23ft Ranger bay boat with a capacity for 4 guests. It is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha 4 Stroke engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, which means you will not waste time when changing productive spots. The boat is fully equipped with all the safety gear you could imagine including life jackets and a CPR-trained crew for your safety.

The vessel contains a GPS for navigation and a fishfisher for locating the schooling fish, as well as a VHF radio for contact. It has a t-top for shade that comes in very handy in the hot Floridian Sun, and a wireless trolling motor for the super shallow waters.

Capt. Chet Jennings Sport Fishing Charters provides rods, reels, tackle, bait, a fishing license, and a catch cleaning service at the end of each trip.
