Ebb and Flow Charters
One of our top picks in Tampa. Captain Charlie Howell was raised in Tampa, Florida, with fishing and hunting quickly becoming two of his most cherished activities. Fishing since he was a young man, Charlie focused his efforts mainly on the upper Tampa Bay in search for Snook and Redfish. Today, he has a vastly broadened scope, becoming an expert in fishing for just about any species bold enough to swim the waters of Tampa Bay.
Captain Charlie operates the 18’ center console Hewes Redfisher, powered by a single 130HP Yamaha engine, equipped with FishFinder and GPS, with a maximum passenger capacity of 2. The vessel was built specifically with fishing the shallow waters in mind, just like those that can be found all throughout Florida.
The boat gives anglers the luxury of stalking even those particularly spooky game fish, in very shallow waters and places that most boats had never ventured into. It is exactly thanks to shallow-water pioneers such as Bob Hewes that this type of fishing has boomed into an increasingly popular sport.
Captain Charlie specializes in light tackle and fly fishing for an array of species inhabiting the waters of Tampa, such as Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Cobia, Trout, and many other game fish. All fishing equipment for a successful inshore fishing trip is arranged by Captain Howell. At the end of your trip, if you caught a keeper, Captain is happy to clean and bag the fish for you to take with you. Florida fishing licenses are needed for all occupants of the boat and will be supplied by Charlie at no additional charge.

My dad and I went out with Capt. Charlie last week and had a blast! He put us right on the fish and we had a big time! I lost count of how many snook we landed! Charlie has lived in the area all his life and knows his stuff! I highly recommend taking a charter with Capt. Charlie!!

It was really windy on my trip and Charlie found some nice spots where we could fish and not be bothered by the wind. He knows the fish and where they will be. He made sure I caught fish. You won’t go wrong booking with Charlie.
