Want to escape the Florida heat and cast a few lines after-hours? Join Captain Ryan and enjoy an adventurous night of fishing in Tampa Bay, Florida! Nighttime fishing can be hit or miss depending on the moon phase but catch a full moon or the days around it more specifically and the fishing can be red hot! On these Tampa Bay night fishing adventures you can expect to target some dock lights, unlit bottom structures, fish the channels with live bait or post up by a bridge to target Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and even Tarpon during the summer months! These calm water conditions are perfect for beginner to intermediate fishermen/fisherwomen who are eager to reel something in. Even though there is low light, these trips can be super productive because some fish like to feed at night when predators—especially out of water predators like birds and humans—are less of a threat. Snook are one of these nocturnal feeders that love biting at night! You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Ryan’s 22-foot Skeeter bay boat powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine. This boat is equipped with a GPS, Fishfinder, Live Bait Well, Wireless Trolling Motor, and Ice Box. Don’t forget to bring any snacks you might need (Captain Ryan will have bottled waters on board) as well as a cooler with ice to take home your night's catch. Captain Ryan will provide all rods, reels, and tackle, but feel free to bring your own. Captain Ryan catches live bait before the start of each trip, as it’s most effective in these waters, so don’t worry about bait! Captain Ryan will also clean and fillet your fish at the end of each trip. Get ready for an eventful night on the water with Captain Ryan! Read More

    My wife booked a 3 person salt water fishing trip out of Tampa, Florida in Tampa Bay. Our Captain was John Rivers that day for 4 bours. The captain arrived early and we were on our way. He explained what we would be doing and gave us many pointers to increase our chanes of hooking up. Capt Rivers was very friendly and knowledgeable about the fishing and the surrounding area. It was very hot that day with very little wind most captains probably would have called it a day but Capt Rivers kept us out an extra 3 hours catching fish. He wanted us to have a great time which we did. We will be booking more trips with Capt John Rivers in the near future. I urge anyone who wishes to do some bay fishing to look up Capt John Rivers and book a trip and make some memories. Thanks to Capt John for going out of his way to make sure we had a good time.
