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 Canyon Bay 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 in the air
Tampa Bay Spring fishing is HOT! And it’s only going to get better. Redfish, snook and trout. You name it, and it is willing to eat. Look for things to heat up as our water temperatures increase.
Snook season has started off with a bang. Although most of our snook fishing is catch and release, we are catching some nice keeper size and a few oversize fish. Live whitebait is the key, to having a great Tampa Bay snook day.
School is in session. Tampa Bay redfish schools have started to show up and eating everything in their path. Fish are ranging from 4lbs up to 15lbs. Catch a couple of these bruisers on light tackle and they will be sure to wear you out.
The big “gator” trout have invaded the Tampa Bay flats. Working potholes has been the most productive technique. Work as many potholes as possible to increase your odds of hooking a trophy size “Gator” trout. Live or cut bait has been productive.
