Background
I've been fishing my entire life. I am now 45 years old. I have fished for bass and catfish all over the north and south. I have fished for salmon and trout in the north. I moved to Florida to become a saltwater fisherman. It doesn't take you long to pick up on flats fishing if you know how to catch bass. Most flats fishing comes down to learning the tides and terrain of the areas you fish as well as what baits the fish are biting that day.
Techniques
I prefer to fish with live or dead baits. It's what the fish really want to eat and a client has a better chance of catching a trophy or keeper size fish. Hard and plastic baits are used also.

New Port Richey/ Anclote River

We started 2 hours before high tide and fished 2 hours after. The trout and pompano bite was very slow. We decided to try some back country areas up in a few shallow water creeks. "Success" is the perfect… Read Full Report →

Finding fish this time of year in Tampa Bay is never a problem. The Snook, Trout, Redfish, Snapper and Spanish Macs are hitting just about anything you throw at them. Grouper are stacking up in the bay and are… Read Full Report →

Capt. Charlie Howell and I decided to do some fish finding in upper Tampa Bay this past Saturday. The waters way north into Tampa Bay are still a bit tea colored from all the rain in the last month.… Read Full Report →

Lots of snapper and snook caught along the banks and out 30-40 ft off the banks along the flats in 1-2 ft of water. Scale sardines are the bait of choice now. The bait is starting to show but… Read Full Report →

Great day despite fish finder malfunction. Outstanding boat and knowledgable captain. Memorable up close and prolonged encounter with a very friendly dolphin.

Thanks so much Bill. I hope to see you guys again sometime.

Went fishing 3-23-16 with Sean.  Had a fun day fishing.  He worked hard, arrived early, and was a great teacher.  We probably caught 20 snook but the highlight came at the end of the day when he put my son on a Jack Crevalle.  The fish went on many runs and took my son around the boat twice fighting it. 

As we rank our weeks activities on vacation fishing with Sean ranks number 1.  So when we come back down we will be going back out with him again.

Craig, I’m glad you guys had fun. A great review too. I look forward to the next one and I hope you guys can come back when the water is warmer for some much larger and more willing fish. Until next time my friend.

Captain Sean worked very hard for my boys and I on our fishing trip with Southern Outdoor Sportsmen.  we caught some fish on a day when it was difficult to catch fish. He worked very hard to put us on the fish but as all good fishermen know, sometimes they just don’t bite.  He was professional and friendly and I would definitely use his services again. I have no reservations in recommending him to future customers.  thanks Captain Sean for your efforts.  maybe next time we can get into some big ones!

Capt Sean was very good with his communications and showed up exactly on time. Even though we could not get the big ones to bite, we had a very fun time!! Capt Sean made sure we each got a take home prize and was extremely professional throughout!!!!!

We will be going fishing with Captain Sean again!!! We were blown away at his desire to put us on fish and have a good day.  We went for the full day trip and we caught fish ALL day!! We barely had time to eat our lunch.  Overall, we couldn’t have asked for a better day! Well except for the sun and heat but hey it’s Florida!! He had everything we needed for the whole day and the boat was nice and up to date with technology!  Thanks! 
Oh, and we decided last minute and he was so nice to fit us in on a good weather day :)

We booked an all day fishing charter on 03/29/2015.  We had a great day on the water despite the fact even with our best planning, a freakish late March cool front moved through the area causing the water temperature to drop and the tide to stay low.  We didn’t end up catching very many fish, but it was not from a lack of trying!  Capt Sean was great and his boat was well maintained and he was very knowledgeable.  We would definitely spend another day on the water with him and would even like to try a gator hunt with him in the future!

Met Captain Signore at the ramp first thing. He had the boat, bait and gear all ready to roll. The tide was not working in our favor but we managed some small fish early. Later on in the day we hooked up on some nice size snook including my first. Great day on the water.

I wanted to have a short day out on the boat and still be able to experience a decent fishing trip at the same time with my brother and co-worker. Southern Outdoor Sportsman definitely delivered! We fished a few different spots within a short duration and everyone we all caught something. I am impressed that given the limited amount of time Sean was able to provide an awesome experience thanks to his knowledge of the bay. I definitely recommend Southern Outdoor Sportsman and next time I will plan for an entire day!
