About Your Trip

Are you ready for a fish that will test your strength, stamina, and fishing skill? If you can handle the challenge, the “Silver King” is the fish for you. The majestic Tarpon has become the most sought-after game fish in Florida—especially between May and July. During this short window, these huge saltwater predators migrate up and down the coast, hunting for food. Tides, weather, and the phases of the moon play essential roles in Tarpon behavior, but in the spring and early summer these kings of the inshore are always hungry, biting on both live and artificial bait. Get out there and test yourself against these prime gamefish with Captain Zach, an experienced Tarpon fisherman and one of our top guides in the Tampa area. Tarpon can get up to 200 pounds in this area, so bring your A-game!

On the day of the trip, you'll set out aboard Captain Zach's 27' Sea Hunt center console—the perfect boat for fishing the Florida inshore. It's equipped with everything you could possibly need for a successful and comfortable trip, including GPS, Fishfinder, and a Live Bait Well. Captain Zach will provide everything you need, including top-of-the-line rods, reels, bait, and tackle, so that all you have to do is cast out, hook up, and then hold on for the fight of your life!

To maximize your time on the water, make sure to bring proper clothing, a hat, sunscreen, and a camera! Any trip with Captain Zach is sure to be picture-worthy, and Tarpon are a particularly photogenic fish.

Captain Zachary

Independent Guide
Captain Zach is an avid angler who has fished Tampa Bay constantly for the last 18 years. His love for fishing began with freshwater fishing for Bass and Catfish with his father in Kentucky and Indiana. Living waterfront as soon as he moved to Tampa, his passion for saltwater fishing soon surpassed all others! He got a john boat at the age of 14 and hasn’t looked back since. Captain Zach has always been an outdoorsman, learning as much as he could about all different species as a child. By now, he's accomplished many of his personal fishing goals and loves to share his passion with others, teaching them the ins and outs of the sport. He has competed in many local tournaments and coordinated with researchers about the habits of local fishes. Captain Zach’s countless hours on the water have allowed him to find the best fish and spots in the Bay. A trip with Captain Zach will be a blast for everyone, whether you're an experienced angler or just learning the ropes!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
