Capt. Tom

I am a US Coast Guard licensed fishing guide offering light tackle inshore fishing charters from a boat or kayak from St. Petersburg to Clearwater.  I have been fishing the Tampa Bay area for over 30 years, and use a variety of techniques for targeting numerous species that swim the inshore and backwaters.

Fishing has always been my favorite pastime.  I have spent my life fishing for a variety of saltwater species throughout the state of Florida, and freshwater species, such as big Florida largemouth bass, trophy trout in the North Georgia mountains, steelhead and salmon in Lake Erie tributaries, and mountain trout in North Carolina and Tennessee.  I have authored fishing reports for the Online Fisherman and have dabbled in both professional and local fishing tournaments.  I am fortunate to have been featured in an article written by Terri Tomalin for FLW Outdoor Magazine, and the outdoor television show “Friends in Wild Places” with TomBob Outdoors.

I enjoy teaching clients what I have learned, and sharing the great outdoors with them to create memories that last a lifetime.
