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.

John was awesome, super friendly and totally easy to talk to and fish with! My husband and I went fishing with John and we were able to catch a good amount a fish. He brought us to great spots where the fish were biting! We even had dolphin visitors almost the entire time at the second spot which was great! It was just my husband and I fishing on the boat which made the experience even more fun and personalized, I would definitely recommend Captain John for any of your upcoming fishing trips near Tampa!

First fishing charter I’ve been on and it was fantastic! John was great captain and guide. He gave us some really helpful tips on fishing which paid off. His energy is awesome! We had a great time and will definitely be booking another fishing trip with him.

I had searched for months for a fishing charter for our trip, but the shear number of them made it overwhelming to decide. I had scrapped the idea completely. But after reading reviews about Capt John I went ahead and booked and did not regret it. John’s fantastic personality and knowledge of the bay was exceptional. Due to morning thunderstorms he headed to his “plan b” spot and we were on fish on the first cast. He was extremely patient with my wife who is a novice and helped me improve my technique which kept me catching fish the entire morning. Above all else his ethics and respect for the area wildlife. We had a scenario where an animal was foul hooked and John made the right call to ease the animals pain and potential long term harm. And it certainly wasn’t the easy call and it cost us several minutes of fishing and disturbed our final spot, but it was ethnically the right thing to do. Will book with John again, without a doubt
