Inshore Fishing is one of the most exciting aquatic adventures that Tampa Bay has to offer. The best part - it’s great for all ages! Whether you have never fished a day in your life or you are a seasoned professional, you will surely have a blast. You can expect to catch Triple Tail, Red fish, Snook, Snapper, Flounder, and many other varieties of fun-to-catch fish. Your captain will be taking pictures throughout the day to make sure you can cherish this trip for a lifetime. At the end of the day, we will make sure your catch is filleted and properly prepared to be transported.

The Boat:

 

The boat you will be on is the nicest boat money can buy! Our Crevalle Bay boat is perfect for inshore fishing because of its shallow draft, which makes it easy to maneuver through low tide. This 26 foot beauty is also equipped with a power pole, trolling motor, yachting electronics, and navigational fish finders. It features a second helm so your captain can drive from above to spot your next catch. 

 

Your Captain:

The Poseidon Charter captains are seasoned professionals that will be able to put you on any variety of fish that you desire. If you are a fisherman and want to learn new tips and tricks, our captains love to share their knowledge so that you, too, can land your next big catch! Our captains are also experts on cooking up your catch of the day, so if you have questions about how best to prepare your fish, they will be more than happy to give you their secret recipes. They will also gladly give you their recommendations for a local restaurant that will be able to cook your fish for lunch or dinner.

What To Expect:

Upon your arrival to our private marina, your captain will meet you inside or on our covered porch and will offer you a coffee to wake you up and the restroom before you depart. They will have the boat gassed up and stocked with water, fishing gear, and bait. This ensures that your entire 4, 6, or 8 hour charter will be non-stop fun! 

 

You will enjoy an action-packed day with your captain as they put you on the fish and take tons of pictures so you can remember this day for a lifetime! After an amazing fun-filled day on the water, your captain will bring you back to the dock where they will filet all of the keeper fish you caught. They can even recommend a few restaurants that will cook your catch for lunch or dinner! 

 

What To Bring:

 

  • Weather appropriate clothing - we will advise you the day before. 

  • Sunscreen – we don’t want you looking like a lobster after the trip!

  • Sunglasses (optional)

  • Phone – so you can take pictures and we can send you our pictures.

  • Snacks or Lunch (if doing a full day) - we recommend a sandwich or something easy to eat while fishing.

  • Bag for personal belongings - the boat has plenty of storage space to keep phones or wallets high and dry! 

What Not To Worry About:

 

  • Fishing Licenses - we take care of that for you by being licensed and fully insured!

  • Drinks - bottled water and Powerade are provided. 

  • Fishing Gear - all the necessary fishing gear is included. 

  • Safety Gear - all safety gear remains on board each boat at all times and we are a Coast Guard inspected and approved vessel!

Fish You Might Catch While On Your Charter

Redfish - Also known as the "Red Drum", these beautiful fish are a delicacy to Tampa Bay. They can range from 15 inches to over 50 inches in length and always put up a great fight. You can expect to find Redfish in the grassy flats, mangroves, or even around oyster beds. Redfish love live bait such as Greenbacks and Shrimp, however, a lot of anglers have success using artificial baits, such as spinning baits or DOA shrimp.

In 2017, Red Tide hit Tampa Bay and killed millions of fish, including the beloved Redfish. The population of Redfish was hurt so bad that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation had to put a halt to Redfish season. Thankfully, the Redfish are back and are bigger than ever!

Snook - Also known as the "Common Snook", these fish are a “must catch” when fishing in Tampa Bay! They range from 12 inches to over 60 inches and will give you an adrenaline rush like no other. Snook love hanging out around docks, beaches, mangroves, grassy flats, and oyster beds. Snook love devouring Greenbacks, Pinfish, Shrimp, and small Grunts. Snook were also affected by the Red Tide and, just like the Redfish, they had a devastating blow to their population. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation also had to shut the Snook Season down. However, the Snook population is now flourishing and has bounced back three-fold. The FWC has since reopened Snook season!

Triple Tail - Also known as "Blackfish", they are new to the scene of inshore fishing. Not because they haven’t always been around, but because not very many people knew about them or knew how to catch them! This fish looks like a freshwater Nile Perch and has features that look prehistoric. Triple Tail love structures, so you can find them near buoys, channel markers, or even trash floating in the water. You can find Triple Tail inshore as well as offshore and they love munching on Greenbacks and Shrimp.
