Background
Hi. My name is Captain Ronnie Hayes. I was born and raised in St Petersburg FL. I have spent most of my life fishing the beautiful waters that surround this amazing place I call home. The fishing opportunities here are endless. My greatest passion as a fishing guide is taking kids fishing. The most important part of my job is making sure they leave with big smiles. So what do you say, book your trip today and let's go catch some fish!!!
Techniques
My favorite time of the year is in the summer time. There is nothing better than fishing under the Skyway Bridge hooking a Giant Tarpon and watching the explosion as she jumps into the air. We get to do this from early April to the end of August. When I'm not fishing for the silver king, you can find me anchored up on an inshore flat, searching for those big redfish schools that come cruising down that mangrove shoreline. Some of the best snook fishing happens in these back water canals and grass flats along Tampa Bay. Our trips include live bait and artificial. So what do you say, let's go fishing!!!
