About Your Trip

When you get out there with Captain Tommy, you're in for the ultimate hunt. Whether that's giant tailing Redfish and cruising Snook along a mangrove-covered shoreline, or "gator" Trout laid up in a pothole, you'll be out in it, casting to some of the top gamefish species in America.

The Tarpon Springs area and its surrounding estuaries are home to an abundance of fish, including the three above. On this trip, you'll be targeting these
species in very shallow, crystal-clear water over grass flats. This is strictly a sight fishing game and is somewhat similar to a spot-and-stalk big game hunt, in which we'll pole over miles of endless flats, looking for fish moving in transition with the tide. With the weather being generally clear and calm, it's a very effective time to present a fly to these hungry fish. This style of fishing will put your angling skills to the test, and is extremely effective when conditions are in your favor. Join Captain Tommy to complete that slam on fly, or just explore a new style of fishing!

About Your Guide

Captain Tommy

Independent Guide
Fishing and exploring the Florida outdoors are more than just hobbies to Captain Tommy—indeed, they have been his passions for as long as he can remember. As a 3rd generation native of Tarpon Springs, few are more familiar with the surrounding waters of Pinellas and Pasco Counties.

Beginning at a very early age, Captain Tommy was mentored by what many consider some of the finest fishing guides in the state. Now with over 15 years in the professional fishing and
guiding industry, he has carried on their legacies while sharpening his own skill set to bring his clients extraordinary days on the water. Captain Tommy’s acumen for saltwater fishing has allowed him to win or place in several prestigious tournaments targeting inshore species, as well as billfish. Being extremely well-traveled, he has fished many exotic locations in both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

However, nothing is dearer to his heart than the waters of southern Florida, where he excels at finding inshore gamefish including: Tarpon, snook, redfish, spotted seatrout, cobia, bonefish, and permit. Capt. Tommy also specializes in fishing for giant tarpon (including fly-fishing) in the shallows of Pinellas County as well as the legendary waters of Boca Grande, FL.

Capt. Tommy carries the 100 Ton USCG Master's License which is the highest licensing level that a fishing guide can acquire and is only obtainable by having thousands of hours on the water.

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!
