About Your Trip

On this trip with Captain Ray, you'll target Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout on light tackle! This is classic Tampa Bay fishing, where you can explore inshore mangrove channels and nearshore waters with ease.

I had a great day today with Captain Ray, we were catching Snook most of the day despite dolphins trying to disrupt things. Nothing huge caught but plenty of them with a bonus Sting Ray. On the trip i saw Dolphins, eagles and 2 huge nurse sharks. Ray himself is good company, very friendly and patient with those that are new to this style of fishing. I have another trip booked and we are going

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 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!
