Tell No Tails Charters

Tell No Tails Charters will take you fishing in true Florida style! Captain Ty Colby is a Tampa native with 20 years of experience fishing these waters. Whether you’ve been fishing all your life or you’re just out to test the waters, he is prepared to make your fishing experience an enjoyable one.

Step aboard a 24’ Hanson bay boat powered by a 250 HP Mercury Optimax engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots, this vessel won’t waste any time getting you to the fishing grounds.

She comes equipped with Fishfinder, Lowrance GPS, and a live bait well. An 8’ Power-Pole shallow water anchor will keep you locked in place once you’ve zoned in on the action.

Capt. Ty aims to provide a fun, comfortable, and safe environment for everyone on board. There’s room for up to 4 passengers and children age 4 and above are welcome. On board you will find two coolers to store your catch and your drinks.

Fishing the calm inshore waters is perfect for families and first-time anglers. You can enjoy casting lines without taking a long boat ride to the fishing grounds or worrying about seasickness.

You will spend your time in Tampa Bay fishing for some of the area’s most sought-after inshore species, including Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Snapper, and Speckled Trout.

You may reel in plenty of other fish, as well, from Flounder and Grouper to Cobia. Depending on the species, you can keep your catch and Capt. Ty will clean and fillet it for you.

Tell No Tails Charters provides a fishing license and all the gear you need, including Bull Bay rods with Penn reels. Parents, please be sure to bring a properly fitting life vest for your children.

Come aboard today for true Florida style fishing in Tampa Bay!
