Captain James was born and raised on the West coast of Florida and have been fishing the Sarasota, Bradenton and Tampa Bay area for over 15 years. I specialize in inshore Snook, Redfish, Tarpon and Trout fishing. I have always had a passion for inshore fishing and love nothing more than sharing this passion with others. No matter your age or skill level I can put a trip together to fit you. He is great with kids, dogs and large groups. He is a fun easy going Captain that just wants to show you a good time on the beautiful waters of Sarasota, Bradenton and Tampa Bay.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only catch fish, but show you a great time on the water, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR code (like a mobile boarding pass). Just show your guide your QR code on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to go fishing. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a full refund. Your safety is our top concern.
We're always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
