Tampa, United States

Background
Join us, Capt. Cristian Minami and Capt. Kenny Smith, on an inshore fishing charter in the Tampa Bay area. Growing up in Tampa Bay, fishing became our passion at a young age. Participating in local fishing tournaments and fishing events brought us closer to the fishing industry. As we got older and gained more experienced on the water we decided to get our Captains Licenses and started Inshore Society LLC, a fishing charter company directed at guiding anglers in the Tampa Bay area. Our main focus as a charter Captain is to provide clients with a once in a lifetime fishing experience that will be memorable for the rest of their life.
Techniques
Fishing techniques include: fishing the flats with live and artificial baits, site fishing, fishing some of the most beautiful estuaries that Tampa Bay has to offer. Light tackle is generally used.

Had a great day. Never caught that many snook in my life. Call Capt. Kenny if you want to catch some nice fish. He is the man?
