Fishing Reports

Tampa Bay South BIGGEST BEST sheepshead

February 14, 2016

Some of the best sheepshead fishing I've ever seen around here. There are huge schools and we are releasing most under 16". The cold water temps have them spawning in shallow water in less than 15 feet. Read Full Report →


Tampa Bay's the BEST Snook fishing

March 20, 2016

The best snook fishing the Gulf coast can offer with upwards of 50 + snook slot and over slot mixed in. Plus red fish and big trout. Mix in mangrove snapper snd fishing can't get any better. Read Full Report →


Offshore bite is on FIRE

December 18, 2016

Warm weather is making the Offshore fishing real close with just a short run. The fish are big and pull hard. If offshore isn't your thing then inshore is great too with snook reds and trout. Read Full Report →

Went fishing on Thursday, February 4, 2016

My buddy was down from Mass. and we wanted to get a Florida fishing experience. We needed to change our reservation due to weather conditions and chose an afternoon trip. It was a sunny, warm and blustery day and tide coming in. Fishing under docks was the strategy and Capt. Rachel made sure we were as effective as possible with the casts and bait. We caught a couple (Red, Sheep Heads) lost a couple good size before landing them. Recognizing this isn’t the right season…  It was a great day over all and Capt. Rachel was out standing. Oh ya, Capt. Rachel filleted the fish and we enjoyed them the following night.
