Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Tarpon Springs

According to customer reviews, Chances R Fishing Charters, Anclote Adventures, and Patriotic Guide Service are some of the most popular fishing charters in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Full list of top fishing charters in Tarpon Springs.

The average price for a private 4 hour Tarpon Springs fishing trip is $384, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $528 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Chances R Fishing Charters, Anclote Adventures, and Patriotic Guide Service all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Tarpon Springs.

The most popular fish species you can target are Snook, Redfish, and Cobia. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Spinning, and Jigging. Inshore fishing, flats fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

While most people will exclusively think of fishing for Silver King, Tarpon Springs has a lot more to offer to a prospective angler. This diverse fishery caters to all levels and Tarpon Springs fishing charters have access to a network of flats, Anclote Anchorage, Gulf fisheries, and Lake Tarpon. And they’re all at your disposal.
 
If you’re looking for the best Tarpon action, Saint Joseph Sound is one of the premium locations. Add to that Trout winter run, as well as year-round fishing for Snook, Redfish, Pompano, Flounder, and Mackerel, and you’ve got a winning combo. Freshwater anglers will enjoy Lake Tarpon (though the name is misleading), where they can cast their line for big Bass, Bluegill, Black Crappie, and Redear Sunfish.
 
Of course, you can’t miss out on exploring the Gulf while you’re in town. Nearshore, chase after King and Spanish Mackerel, Snapper, Grouper, and Cobia. Hardcore anglers travel past the 60-mile mark to find Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. Deep sea fishing is fantastic, but you’ll have to go 80 miles offshore to hook impressive Amberjack, Sailfish, and a wide range of Grouper and Snapper species.
 
All that being said, who can go fishing in Tarpon Springs? Well, just about anyone. Families with kids will have a blast on half day inshore excursions, and a lot of tasty fish for dinner. Nearshore trips are perfect for novices looking to experience diverse fishing not that far from land. Finally, deep sea fishing expeditions are usually booked by the seaworthy fishers, ready for a test of strength and skill.
 
Come to Tarpon Springs, find your captain, and your fishing adventure can begin!

January
You might get cool weather, but the bite is super hot, with Grouper bunching up around the nearshore and offshore bottoms, making any day a great one for catch and release. You can also get Redfish, Snook, and Trout.
February
February brings a steady bite from inshore species, and you can get Snook, Redfish, and some Trout, or practice catch and release for Gag Grouper.
March
As the cold front rolls out of town and the temperatures go up, Snook rise in numbers, especially around creeks. You can also get some Sheepshead as well as Mackerel a bit further out.
April
If you don’t mind traveling more than 50 miles from land, then the trip can yield some big and hard-fighting Wahoo. Meanwhile, you can target a slew of species inshore, with Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, and Snook topping the list.
May
It’s all about Tarpon this time of year. Choose fly fishing or sight casting and come out to the Saint Joseph Sound for a fishing spectacle! You can also get Trout and Snook inshore, as well as Black and Red Drum.
June
Get out early to avoid fickle weather, get some fresh bait, and make your aim for Snook and Redfish. Tarpon are biting left and right, so your inshore trip will probably be a memorable one.
July
Bottom fisheries near offshore reefs and wrecks hold Snapper and Grouper. Anglers on vacation are all headed out to find delicious table fare. Stay inshore and you can get a beautiful King Mackerel or two on the line.
August
Mangrove Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Flounder, or all of the above – the choice is yours in August. There are plenty of Trout in the water, so you could easily land a mixed bag of top-tier inshore species.
September
If you’re looking for a fall brawl, these waters will give you a steady bite from Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, and Mackerel. Inshore fisheries are on fire and you will definitely want to join the chase.
October
Redfish are getting better on the flats while you can find superb Snook fishing around creeks and rivers. The King Mackerel fall run is in full swing, and slow trolling can get you bags of catch.
November
Although the weather’s cooling off, the waters are lit up with Snook around the creeks and King Mackerel around deeper flats. You can get epic Redfish and Black Drum as they enter their fall frenzy.
December
The days are colder, but fishing surely isn’t. An average day on the water can get you Snook, Kingfish, some Redfish, Black Drum, and more.

Captain was awesome. Down to earth and the vibe was chill. Very clean boat. Willing to do anything to catch some fish. We landed a bunch this trip. Highly recommend. Will be going again as well as all my Referal’s will be for his charter. Highly recommend this dude. I called others and they were over priced or couldn't make the day. He made time with a very short notice and put his own schedule aside to make things happen. Tight lines!

Had a trip with my two boys 6 & 8 and had a great experience! We weren’t getting any hits but n the beginning of our trip and the captain moved to different spot were the fish were lively. Got multiple hits on fish after we moved and the captain helped out boys to make sure they were casting where they needed to and were loaded with live bait. At the end when we had no keepers the captain found a spot and helped the boys to get a good fighting fish that was a keeper. Great experience!

Capt Robbie was an absolute joy to hang with for a Saturday. He had a great feel for the whole group and knew that my 11 year old Ben was the VIP. We chased big fish early and ended catching a bunch of small/medium fish to slam dunk the event. He could even feel that we loved nature watching and tried to get us within a safe view of a variety of wildlife.
