Me? Well I'm Will Shook... I grew up here, and I have a passion for fishing. If anyone was ever looking for me the first place they'd check was to see if my boat was gone, so I guess it came as no surprise to my friends that I decided to become a fishing guide. And now I'd like to share my enthusiasm, and the excitement of stalking and catching fish with you.
We'll be fishing on my custom built Aeon 23' bay boat. It's designed to run safe, smooth, and comfortable, getting us quickly to my favorite spots.
Our year-round fishing encompasses every one of the major species of inshore game fish that are sought out by tropical anglers. For starters there's the Tarpon, often running in excess of 100 pounds... Their fury and power is unmatched by any inshore species. We also have Snook... Sleek, crafty, and fast... And always up for a brawl. And of course Redfish... So tough and challenging there is actually a fishing tour dedicated to them. We also have many other saltwater species of fish, and you can bet there isn't a single one of them that will give up easy.

Spring is Here!
fishing charters has been HOT, and so has the weather. With temperatures running well above average, the redfish bite has been on fire. We are fishing for redfish in Tampa Bay with light tackle spinning gear, cut/dead bait and they offering a very challenging fight. Most fish caught are ranging from 10lbs up to 15lbs. As temperatures continue to climb, look for the Tampa Bay redfish bite to stay hot.
As we get into the full swing of Spring, look for the Tampa Bay snook bite to heat up. Some fish are starting to move out of the rivers and onto the adjacent flats. They will be hungry and ready to eat anything you put in their face.
Trout fishing has been a little slow in Tampa Bay but things should start to get more consistent. As water temperatures start to warm and bait moves on the flats, trout should follow.
