Captain George Hastick has been fishing the waters of the St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay area for over 42years and has been professionally guiding for 25 years. He welcomes all from the novice angler to the professional angler. Trips with Capt. George are family friendly but are also good for entertaining business clientele, birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties. We will fish Tampa Bay and its flats and backwater areas. We will always put you in protected waters on windy days to make sure you are in calm waters having a great time. There is a wide variety of fish in Tampa Bay that can be tailored to what you are after, whether it is dinner or just sportfishing catch and release, we customize the trip for you. The main species that we target are snook, redfish, trout and mangrove snapper but we also catch shark, spanish mackerel, sheepshead, cobia and more! The 4 hour trip is a great trip to get out there and have plenty of time to experience the great fishing that Tampa Bay has to offer. This trip is great for the novice to the average angler who doesn't want to be out there to long but still have fun catching plenty of fish. The 6 hour trip is for the angler that just can't get enough and wants to maximize their day of fishing. This trip will give the fishing fanatic plenty of time to get their fishing fix in! Also your picture could end up on a show or in magazines if you would like that. Captain George co-hosts Fishing Adventures Florida which streams on 5 channels plus YouTube, he also co-hosts Florida West Coast Fishing Report Live Monday nights on Facebook and he writes for Coastal Angler Magazine and Onshore Offshore Magazine.

Captain George did not provide a fishing charter. He provided a professional clinic on how to land fish of your dreams. My father and I couldn’t keep the fish off our hooks thanks to the near boundless amount of tips and encouragement from Captain George. A true master of his craft. We cannot recommend him enough.

Capt. George Hastick delivered! He was able to get us on fish right away and kept the fun going (and fish biting) for our entire charter. We asked to target some species - and Capt. George found them. Really nice clean boat and equipment. Great and friendly communication by Barbara. Capt. George is a true professional - highly recommend it!

We had a great time. Captain George is awesome. We caught a lot of really good sized mangrove snapper, trout, and snook. He has some really good fishing holes. Definitely do it again.

We had the best day on the water! Captain Georges made our experience, so amazing. He made sure that everyone got a fish and we stayed a little longer because he was determined to help our daughter pull a big one out of the water, and she did!

Here on vacation from South Carolina, Captin George was highly recommended to us. We took the "pair of Jacks" (Jax and Jazzi) on a fishing this week with Captin George. They love fishing as much as we do. We caught a nice variety from Snook, Reds, Mango and thankfully no sharks. We have been on several fishing trips around FL and he was by far the most professional and educational. We gained a wealth of knowledge to use in our future fishing endeavors. Jax kissed the fish and Jazzi took a dip!! Great Times! Highly Recommended!!!

My fiancé booked a surprise birthday fishing trip for me. It was my first time fishing on a boat and let me tell you, Captain George is FANTASTIC! I absolutely recommend booking with him. He is extremely knowledgeable, great conversation, really friendly, and his boat is nice and clean. I am looking forward to going back out on the water with him. Thank you for making it a memorable birthday!

Capt George is an awesome guide. He not only has a great personality but knows his stuff. I’ve never seen someone throw a hook in a fish mouth so many times back to back. Truly an amazing time. I learned a lot and caught my PB ever out with him. He knows where the best spots are and his boat was comfortable & fast. If you’re looking for a one of kind, great fishing trip, then Capt George is the way to go!! We can’t wait to fish with you again Capt George. Thank You! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

We’ve tried other charters in the past, but once we went out with Captain George, we’ll only go out on the water with him! Great time and great catches each time! Captain George is the best!

We had the best time with Captain George! This is our second time going on a fishing adventure with him and he never disappoints. Very knowledgeable of the Bay Area and takes you right to the fish! Will be booking a trip again in the future. Five Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
