The pleasure was not hampered by an unusually cold day. When we arrived at the pier at 8 a.m., Captain Tony's boat was spotless, prepared, and ready to go. Our lines were snapping with various sorts of fish after a short trip out to the water - trout, lady fish, sheep head, pin fish, and a few of puffers. A few of dolphins kept us company while we fished, eager to take advantage of our catch and release strategy. Overall, it was a really productive and efficient morning. I really suggest it.

Our family has gone out with Tony year after year when visiting my parents, and all of their guests do as well. He has never disappointed - he goes above and beyond to ensure we have the best bait (by going out early before our fish to trap live sardines, as well as bringing live shrimp) and always knows where to find the fish. The results? Non-stop fishing action time after time, keeping the whole family busy and excited (even the young ones!) for the duration of our charter. Today was windy so we we stayed in the river and mangroves where we caught a total of approximately 3-4 dozen fish of a total 8 different species including snook, sheepshead, redfish, trout, mangrove snapper, etc. On calm days he'll take us out into Tampa Bay to catch a variety of other fish. Tony is an absolute gentleman, highly attentive to his guest's needs and constantly working to ensure the best experience possible. Time after time our trips out with this gentleman have proven that a day fishing with Tony is time and money well spent!

We didn't know what the weather would do, but Tony kept us updated on what the radar and weatherman were saying. We made it out safely and had a great day! We went to three separate locations and were successful at each one. Tony was a terrific conversationalist and provided us excellent advice on how to get the fish aboard the boat. I highly suggest Tony and will contact him again the next time I'm in the Tampa region.

Tony knows his areas; he went on the coldest Christmas the area has seen in 35 years, fished with frozen shrimp, and still managed to catch anything from 9 to 15 fish (we were 4) in four hours. Tony comes highly recommended for inshore fishing!!!
