Hop on board with Captain Ben and prepare for an action-packed day of fishing the intercoastal and nearshore waters around Tarpon Springs!!...Read More
On these 6 to 8 hour trips with Captain Ben, you will bust it out to the nearshore waters where you can target Cobia, Mackerel, and Triple Tail and Tarpon when they are around. Captain Ben has been catching these prized fish off the Florida Gulf Coast for years, and he is sure to put you where the fish are biting.
To attract these picture-worthy fish you'll be a range of light to heavy tackle, mostly using live bait or throwing the occasional artificial lure. Captain Ben is happy to demonstrate proper fundamentals for any of these techniques.
Captain Ben fishes aboard a 23' Sea Chaser equipped with a live well, a T-top for shade, and cushioned seats that provide plenty of space to lounge around while you're waiting for the fish to bite. But just when you get seated comfortably you can bet your bottom dollar that rod'll start whirring and you be back up fighting another fish to the boat!
Captain Ben will provide all rods, reels, and tackle. All you need is a valid Florida fishing license as well as any food or drinks you might need. Come aboard and catch some fish
Captain Ben has been fishing his whole life. Running awesome charters is his bread and butter, and he loves the smile on his clients faces when they hook into their next limit! Though he spends most of his time out on the water, Captain Ben works in real estate in his time off the water! Head out for an epic adventure in Tarpon Springs with Captain Ben.

Captain Ben is very knowledgeable about where to fish. Got us on some Reds 5 minutes off the dock!! Took care of everything: baiting hooks, provided tackle and changed locations of the bite was not happening. His knowledge of when and where to fish was excellent! Our last stop proved ...Read More to have great hits and catches! He didn’t want to head back in the bite was so good! However all things must come to an end and he gave us a wonderful fishing trip. We will definitely hire Ben again! The pontoon boat provided us with enough fishing space and comfort. Ben is an excellent conversationalist and made us feel at home on his boat. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again!

I wanted a fun family experience where my kiddos coluld catch some fish and have some fun. Captain Ben is very family friendly and was flexible in accommodating the children and their interests. I wasn’t expecting a full day catching game fish or a cooler of keepers, ...Read More mostly making lasting memories with my children. They had so much fun catching the fish we did, swimming, learning about the boat and a pod of dolphins that he took time to stop and let us enjoy their show was the cherry on top! We will definitely be using his services again. Thank you Captain Ben for the “best day ever!” As my children said!!

We had a great day on the water - didn’t catch anything keepable - great bites tho, but continued to move around and look for more fish. The only word I have is, if you are someone who needs a bathroom, the ‘toilet’ is a bucket. Not Captains fault - ...Read More it is considered a ‘bathroom’ in a boat if there is a private space to use the bucket. Still give it a 5 all the way around and are looking for when we can go and play again!
