Head out to fish the waters around Tampa with Captain Nick Halenkamp for an awesome day out on the water slaying the fish!
Captain Nick - with his 15+ years of experience - will take you where the fish are biting. He will help you reel in Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and Grouper which are in the bay all year long, as well as Tarpon and Cobia if you want to target them during the summer months.
For these trips, Captain Nick uses his 22’ Aguasport bay boat, which comes with the latest marine electronics and safety gear. It can accommodate up to 4 anglers fishing in full comfort and can accommodate up to 6 if the last two adventurers are small children.
Captain Nick provides all rods, reels, and tackle. All you need to bring are your favorite snack and drinks, your sun protection, and your camera to record your trophies!
Bring your kids or your angling buddies and head out for a fishing adventure to remember with Captain Nick!

Captain Nick Halenkamp is a true Tampa local, born and raised in the area. He was taught how to fish by his mother and became enamored with the amazing Bass fishing Florida has to offer at a young age. Years later he discovered that saltwater fishing was his passion too and decided to expand his skills in that area. He's been fishing for the past 15 years and loves passing his vast knowledge of the local waters on to his customers. Capt. Nick takes pride in his customer service skills, knowing that it takes more than a good fishing spot to keep your customers happy – he works very hard to ensure that all of his guests have an amazing time on the water.
Captain Nick put us on fish immediately. Perfect boat for the bay and we got to fish several different areas. Nick is very accommodating and the whole day went off without a hitch. Definitely one of the most diverse days on the water I’ve ever had as far as species go. Seven different species and two different kinds of sharks. My wife and I would most certainly fish with Capt Nick again and will recommend anyone coming to the Tampa area to him. Tight lines!
Captain Nick was amazing! Especially with my boys. He helped them with everything they needed to catch a fish, and met all their crazy requests from seeing a shark to cutting out an eye ball of this fish he was fileting so they could hold it (boys!). Highly recommend. Great fishing and spectacular experience. So much action we ended up booking a 2nd trip!
