Default Tampa Bay Area Charter

Getting out of the cold for a long weekend in Tampa this weekend. Any thoughts on a good inshore charter captain? How has the fishing been, not looking for a boat ride. Thanks for any input.

I second CA Richardson. Nice fellow but probably booked.

Worst case scenario, rent a kayak and drop in pretty much anywhere. Trout are all over the place. Snook are eating. Big redfish (for our side of the state) are around but I haven't gotten them to eat the last couple of outings.

Offshore, I haven't been out in a month. I think 2 Shea killed a ton of hogfish yesterday though.

These Captains Catch them in The Bay. Have known them and fished around them for many years. Looks to be good tides and weather this weekend. Gonna be busy on the water this weekend.

If I weren't booked I would tell ya to come up to Tarpon Springs and go with me. Fishing is picking up with the water temps back up to 70 or so. It was a tough January with the cold.
