About Your Trip
When you get out there with Captain Tommy, you're in for the ultimate hunt. Whether that's giant tailing Redfish and cruising Snook along a mangrove-covered shoreline, or "gator" Trout laid up in a pothole, you'll be out in it, casting to some of the top gamefish species in America.
... Read More Tarpon Springs area and its surrounding estuaries are home to an abundance of fish, including the three above. On this trip, you'll be targeting these species in very shallow, crystal-clear water over grass flats. This is strictly a sight fishing game and is somewhat similar to a spot-and-stalk big game hunt, in which we'll pole over miles of endless flats, looking for fish moving in transition with the tide. With the weather being generally clear and calm, it's a very effective time to present a fly to these hungry fish. This style of fishing will put your angling skills to the test, and is extremely effective when conditions are in your favor. Join Captain Tommy to complete that slam on fly, or just explore a new style of fishing!

Now with over 15 years in the professional fishing and guiding industry, he has carried on their legacies while sharpening his own skill set to bring his clients extraordinary days on the water.

Capt. Tommy also specializes in fishing for giant tarpon (including fly-fishing) in the shallows of Pinellas County as well as the legendary waters of Boca Grande, FL.
