Where you'll be

You will be taken to one of my many special fishing spots across the Tampabay that I have accumulated from the past 30 years of fishing. Every fishing spot is special, and some super secret, the fishing conditions will determine where we will fish. You are in good hands when you are with your Captain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 51 reviews.

Captain Skunkbeard provided an amazing experience for my eight year old son and I. He’s super personable, outgoing and engaging. My son and I had no real fishing experience and within the first 5 minutes, my son had reeled in a Sheepshead fish. The remainder of the time, Captain went out of his way to make sure that my son and I were able to pull in more fish and compete in a friendly game of who can catch the most. By the end of it, my son and I had lost count, but in total caught about 30 fish (which we released back out). All in all, there is no doubt my son and I will be back for another trip with Captain Skunkbeard. For a chilly Christmas trip, this fishing experience made it all worthwhile. Thank YOU so much, Captain. Your passion for fishing is unmatched and the way you go above and beyond sets you apart from any others offering similar services. You are the best there is!

Excellent guide. Personable and friendly. John wants you to have a great experience. He is not an old crusty worn out captain holding on till retirement. He genuinely desires to please. Great time and good conversation. You hook won’t stay empty and you will catch fish.

I've been on many fishing charters and I would say this experience was one of the best we've ever had. From the minute we met Captian Skunk Beard (CSB) he greeted us with a smile and made us feel extremely welcome and made sure we were comfortable on the boat. We went out on one of the coldest days of the year and he brought a blanket just to make sure we were warm. Once we got to our first fishing spot (one of CSB secret spots) we immediately caught fish within minutes of dropping in the lines. Both our boys 8 and 10 caught many Trout and Red Drum fish. While we were doing that Scare the dolphin was circling us keeping all the fish around us so we could catch more. Next we went to another secret spot, the hidden lake and there we caught up several fish that we could take home and cook. In all we caught 6 different types of fish catching about 25 total fish. We only kept what we could eat which made up a nice tasty lunch. CSB even filleted our fish for us at the end. From start to finish we got the true local experience and we'd do it again in a heartbeat. We loved every minute of it. Thanks Captian Skunk Beard, your a true pro and we'll see you again when we are back in town!

We really enjoyed our trip and experience with Captain Skunkbeard. Great guy. A lot of fun and we caught a lot of fish. My family had a really great time. Even my 5yo had fun and he did really great with him too.

John's experience is exceptional and you should not hesitate to book with him TODAY! We pulled into his first spot and he explained the exact process that we would use and what to look for in the water. Within 5 minutes of having lines in the water, we already landed our first Snook. He worked patiently with our 5 year old son, my wife, and me. We are very much on the novice side of the fishing scale and with his guidance and expertise we spent 4 hours landing fish after fish. He has an undeniable passion for what he does it shows in the quality of his experience. It was action packed an better than we could have ever expected!
