What’s the difference between a clearwater fishing guide & a charter captain? Anyone can go out and pass a test to get a Charter Captains' license. However, a guide is someone who truly knows how to fish in the area. From having the right equipment, boat, waterway knowledge to knowing what is biting on a summer's morn vs. a winter's eve and what bait to use in each scenario. Captain Craig is a true, ‘Clearwater Fishing Guide’. From shallow grass flats fishing to the bays, Captain Craig's flats fishing charters are among the best in the area. His flats charters include taking one to 3 persons to areas such as the grass flats, nearshore, backwaters, and bays along Clearwater and Tarpon Springs and even into Tampa Bay. These flats fishing experiences include casting with artificial or live bait along with traditional & fly fishing with no price disparity between any technique or quarry! Expect to catch snook, redfish, tarpon, mackerel, sharks, cobia, threadfin, & more! You will be fishing aboard Captain Craigs 21' Backcountry Flats boat equipped with a trolling motor and polling platform which allow Captain Craig to sneak you up on the fish to get the best possible look at catching them! This boat can maneuver the skinny water (hence the name of his charter) to chase down the awesome flats fish like tailing Reds, Snook, and even Tarpon! Captain Craig will provide almost everything for your flats fishing adventure from rods, reels, tackle, bait, fishing licenses, and even fish cleaning though he does encourage catch and release. All you'll need to bring are some snacks and drinks, your sun protection, and your own fly gear if that's your flavor, but Captain Craig will take care of the rest to ensure you have an epic day out on the water! Feel free to bring your young ones on this family-friendly trip; Captain Craig is great at getting kids hooked on fishing, and kids under 12 come aboard for free! Read More

This trip is for experienced anglers who want to master inshore fishing techniques and have a shot at the famous "inshore slam" (snook, redfish, trout) or to fill the cooler with fish to eat. Target Redfish, Snook, Trout, Grunts, Mackerel, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Grouper. Captain Jason spends all his free time on the water learning fish habits and movements so you can go straight to the fish on the day of your trip. If you have a goal in mind for the day, Captain Jason is more than happy to try and chase down your next trophy, but he is also privy to which species are bitting best, and can help set expectations for you at the dock by providing expert advice on what tactics and species will be best to target that day. You'll be fishing from Captain Jason's 22' Pathfinder powered by a 200HP Yamaha ProV. With the ability to glide through 12 inches of shallow water or head 9 miles offshore, the world is your oyster when you head out, as Captain Jason is able to target fish far off the beaten path. It comfortably fits 4 passengers plus the captain. Its most notable feature is the 10 foot custom scouting tower, which gives Captain Jason the advantage to scout fish from over 40 feet away! This fishing machine comes rigged with a 9" Garmin navigation system, 24V Minnkota iPilot trolling motor, and 2 live wells. And there is dry space to store your personal belongings and a cooler on board to keep your food and drinks cold for the day! All of Captain Jason's trips depart from Wet Lines Bait & Tackle on Seminole Street in Clearwater. You will meet him there where he'll have the boat in the water, loaded with all necessary bait, tackle, and fishing licenses for an epic day of fishing. He will have a cooler filled with ice to keep all of your food and drinks cold. If you plan on keeping your catch, the captain will fillet and bag it for you as well. Captain Jason recommends you bring any food and drink (especially water!) you would like to enjoy on your fishing adventure. Bring what you need to be comfortable outdoors for the length of your trip. Basic items to consider bringing based upon season and weather are sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, rain jacket, windbreaker, sweatshirt, etc. Captain Jason will also be in touch with you the day before your charter to make sure you are properly prepared for your saltwater adventure!

    Definitely a very fun trip! Will definitely recommend to friends/families. Caught almost 50 fish and was a blast! Two takeaways for myself: Red Snapper fishing can only happen with the 10-12 hour trips, not the 4 hour trips.

    Alex is an awesome guide! Was on time and super fun to hang out with. But mostly importantly he absolutely put me on the fish! Will 100% book Alex again the next time I’m in Clearwater, and you should too if you want the chance to get hooked up with huge tarpon and monster snook!!! A+

    Did a nice job trying to get us on fish. Hustled his rear off. Seemed a bit overwhelming having 4 on the boat who had never fished the flats before and several being relative novices for just 1 crew member. As a result about 1/3 the time 1-2 of our party weren’t fishing as we could have been. He was working hard though … much appreciated! Would highly recommend a 2nd crew member when there are inexperienced people it will be a tight fit though but think it would improve the experience. Tyson was nice, polite, knowledgeable and very patient thanks for the experience. Would highly recommend especially if you’ve done this type of fishing before. Thanks Tyson!

    Great trip, kids had a blast caught a number of fish and lost a few after some tough fights. Captain Tucker made sure we had a good time. He made it look easy. Once Jack dropped the first line we had fish on deck in 15 minutes. They recommended a restaurant to fry it up for us, and it was the best fish any of us have had.

    Craig was great 👍. He told us about the history of the area and went above and beyond to get us fish and show us a good time. The tide and weather was definitely against us but he made the best of it. We had a great time. I appreciated everything and I recommend him for your inshore fishing trip. Thanks again Craig.

    We had a large group of us that came to FL to go fishing. We needed two boats and want to use the same company for the group. This was a great choice. The captains and first mates on both the boats were great. They got us on the fish right away and they didn't stop working the whole time we were out with them. Would book them again the next time we are in Florida.

    Hi: Just want to say my friends and I had a great time fishing with CPT and "Toco." hardest working crew on the dock...and they know where the fish are. This adventure was secretly planned by my wife and some unknown conspirators (CPT's wife?). It was indeed a surprise and a rewarding day on the water with a couple gentlemen that know exactly what to do and WHERE THE FISH are! Great time, recommend to all! Ken Dye

    He put us on fish despite of the fog because of his more than knowledgeable experience.

    Captain Craig was awesome! It was a slower day for fish biting but he got me on 3 new fish species I’d never caught before.

    How Captain Jim waved an arm and bent the weather into a perfect day kinda was spooky but I liked it! It was a great day can’t give enough stars. Thanks again Jim 👍
