Trey Rod Fishing Charters, LLC

Trey Rod Fishing Charters are the perfect opportunity to spend some time on the beautiful flats of Tampa Bay, Florida. Captain Trajan “Trey” Rodriguez is a fourth-generation Tampa native who has been fishing since his childhood. He’s here to bring you the best of these waters, whether you’re in search of a Tarpon or your very own Inshore Slam!

Step aboard a 23’ Shearwater powered by a 250 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine. This vessel is fitted with top of the line gear and advanced fishing technology, including GPS, fishfinder, and a trolling motor. Capt. Trey will have the live bait well fully stocked when you arrive. He supplies Tsunami rods and Penn reels. Up to four passengers are welcome to join him on board.

While fishing the flats of Tampa Bay, Capt. Trey will help you target Snook, Redfish, and Speckled Trout. Catching all three of these in one day will earn you the bragging rights to an Inshore Slam. You will have a chance to try your hand at various techniques such as jigging, spinning, and bottom fishing.

You’re likely to hook into a variety of other species while casting lines in these shallow waters, including Cobia, Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, and small Sharks.

In summer Capt. Trey can help you land a Tarpon, one of Florida’s most popular catches. No bucket list is complete without the Silver King, a hard-fighting fish who puts on one of the most spectacular displays. You can come aboard for a few hours and head straight to the action, or spend a full day on board and make the most of your time on the water.

Trey Rod Fishing Charters include a fishing license and all the gear you need. You are welcome to take home any fish that are legal to keep and Capt. Trey will clean and fillet them for you.

Come aboard and spend your time in Tampa Bay fishing for some of Florida’s most sought-after prizes!

Captain Trey Rodriguez is a fourth-generation native of Tampa, Florida. He caught his first fish when he was 11 years old and was hooked from the start. He graduated from the University of Florida in 2017 and has been guiding charters in Tampa Bay for the past year and a half. He pursued this passion because he loves seeing how excited friends and customers get when they reel in a fish, whether it's their very first catch or just one of many. His favorite fish to catch is none other than the Silver King.
