Boat and Fishing Tackle

Tampa Fishing Charter Boat

You will be fishing in a new, state of the art, 2019, custom-built, 24 foot Sheaffer boat. Made locally in Tampa, Florida, this boat is designed specifically to fish the shallow, inshore waters of the Tampa area. Your fishing guide, Captain Stewart Ames, is US Coast Guard licensed and fully insured and has 25 years of light tackle fishing experience in Northern Pinellas County. It is this experience that guarantees that you’ll be fishing where the fish are at any given time of the year. Your fishing charter includes tackle, bait, fishing license, ice, water, and photos of your fishing experience. Your catch will be cleaned, bagged and iced.  Maximum capacity is 6 anglers but parties of 2 - 4 anglers are best.

Great Sight Fishing Capability

With a second set of controls up in the tower, sight fishing ability is greatly enhanced. The net effect is more time spent fishing where the fish are. The tower also increases the chances at getting a good cast at a roving Cobia, Shark or Tarpon that otherwise might not be seen.

Sun Protection

During the heat of summer, the tower sun shade can make your fishing experience that much more enjoyable. An additional front sun shade can be attached if requested.

Fishing Tackle

The highest quality tackle is provided for your fishing trip to insure that when a fish is hooked, chances are maximized to land it.
