Capt. Roy was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area and has spent most of his life on the waters of West Central Florida. As a third-generation native Captain, Roy grew up fishing with his father, grandfather, and brother, learning to truly appreciate the wonderful fishing of the Tampa Bay area’s Gulf Coast. He has devoted his career to sharing the ultimate fishing experience with you and your favorite fishing gang. Captain Roy can provide a fun day of family fishing as well as personal fishing guidance for the more serious angler.
You will fish aboard his 22’ Skeeter powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. Capt. Roy provides Eupro rods, Penn reels, and Spiderwire fishing line. You are also welcome to bring your own fly fishing equipment.
While fishing inshore you can target a variety of species. Depending on the season you might reel in Redfish, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Cobia, Sharks, and more.
Without friends, fishing isn’t as much fun, and you will always find plenty of both friendship and fish when you fish with Ultimate Fishing Charters. A fishing license is provided for you and Capt. Roy will clean and fillet any fish you’d like to bring home

I was also worried about it being so hot and the fish not biting, Roy told me not to worry it’s not like freshwater - the water still moves so they’ll bit. We caught snook, catfish, mangrove red snapper, and redfish.
We booked a 4 hour morning fishing trip with Captain Roy part of a bachelorette weekend. We had a blast! Captain Roy was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable.
