About Your Trip

If you're looking for that next level fishing trip, you've come to the right spot.

These trips obviously will be targeting limits on this delicious species, but Captain Frankie will help you keep the biggest ones for your limit at that! Depending on the day and how hot the honey holes, you could come back to the dock with a limit for of doormat sized snapper! Now fishing isn't catching, but Captain Frankie is here
to go above and beyond to do whatever it takes to ensure you have an incredible experience and are dam near the closest thing to a guarantee you can get!

These trips involve a quick haul offshore to get to one of Captain Frankie's marked locations on his GPS. The fishing grounds are usually offshore structure like reefs and other live bottoms. Both grouper & snapper species like to hang near the bottom at these structures and usually congregate in high numbers! You will most likely be using a bottom rig including a heavier weight rod and a hefty weight tied on beneath.

There is no hook set involved but you can bet your bottom dollar, you'll know soon enough that the fight is on! Nothing makes Captain Frankie more pleased than delivering on your goals for the day!

Independent Guide
Captain Frankie was born and raised in St. Petersburg, FL. Since he was old enough to walk down to the marinas, bridges, and piers, he has been obsessed with fishing.

For many years—as we all know too well—life happens and our passions take a back seat to survival. While he has always had a love for the water and the excitement of catching big ones, Frankie only recently brought his dream to fruition and became a U.S. Coast Guard certified
captain. Join him for a trip on the beautiful waters of Tampa Bay and let him show you the thrill of a bite on the rod, the excitement of fighting the catch, and the satisfaction of knowing you too haul in a record.

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!
