If you're on the hunt for top-notch Shark fishing on Florida's Gulf Coast, look no further! On this charter fishing trip, Captain Christopher will take you on the water of Tampa Bay to catch a variety of Shark species, including Bonnethead, Blacktip, Nurse, Atlantic Sharpnose, Bull, Hammerhead, and more! Tampa Bay is a massive ecosystem that consists of multiple brackish water waterways connecting the freshwater rivers with the saltwater Gulf of Mexico. Many sharks depend on these mild brackish water conditions to breed juvenile sharks, and the Tampa, Ruskin, and Apollo Beach estuaries are perfect environments for this. Captain Christopher practices the use of both live and dead natural baits in conjunction with his “Secret Chum Formula” on most Shark trips. This combination is fine-tuned to catch Sharks, which detect the chum from far away, and then go crazy for the baits! Once on of these powerful fish grabs your hook, it's game on! Sharks are famous for their stamina and toughness, and it can take twenty minutes or more to haul in a big one. Captain Christopher will be by your side, offering helpful advice and tips for fighting one of these toothy fish onto the boat. Captain Christopher operates a custom-built 21’ Clearwater 2000CC bay boat. This sleek vessel allows for a comfortable drift through the Tampa Bay flats. There’s also a lot of fishing space and a shaded T-top for hot summer days, plus a Bluetooth stereo, so feel free to bring your favorite playlist! Read More

    We were looking for a different kind of fishing trip and found it - we loved the surf fishing experience with Capt Max! He is a professional in every sense - he reached out to ensure we knew what to expect and where to meet. The beach location was easy to find & park and he had chairs & water waiting for us. Capt Max is very personable - loved hearing his story! The surf was very rough so we didn’t have high expectations, but Capt Max worked hard to find fish! We caught three nice pompano which he cleaned for us on the beach (they were delicious by the way!). Plus, we were treated to a beautiful sunset! What’s not to love?! No early morning, no bouncing around on a boat, spending time on the beach, great sunset, and a tasty dinner - perfect start to a beach vacay! Can’t wait to do it again and a big thank you to Capt Max!

    Steven K. with Max A. of Panama City Beach, Florida

    Second Generation fisherman Rob was absolutely the best. He knew where to go close to the Harbor to put us on the fish. Highly recommended.

    Robert H. with Rob D. of Key West, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    I've been out on charters many, many times mostly down the east coast but also in Cabo. I must say the trip out with captain Manny is one of the two best trips out I've ever experienced. Her out is on fish, Jordan (the mate) ensured the rods and basis were correct and ready to catch fish. This was just a half day trip but next trip I'm going full day. Wow, I highly recommend Captain Manny!!!!! The catch highlights have to include the 54" barracuda and a 7' shark (it took two of us tag teaming and over 30 minutes to bring the shark alongside the boat for measurement.

    Some times you are fortunate to meet people that leave a deep impression an impregnation on you. Captain Mark is one of these rare persons. I was fortunate to go fishing with him today and we had a blast. He is so kind, so full of knowledge, that I do recommend going fishing with him. His repeated actions around the wounded warrior project are a tribute to his care about his peers and good people in general.

    Cornelissen M. with Mark G. of Islamorada, Florida

    We had a fantastic trip with Robert, he got us into plenty of action including an 80lb Tarpon with a couple other hook ups. We then poled an area and caught some juvenile Tarpon that was a blast.
