Tampa Fishing Guides

Captain Mike is a professional Tampa Bay fishing guide that offers inshore fishing charters, Tampa flats fishing, and nearshore fishing charters throughout the Tampa Bay area. Mike is an expert charter fishing captain with over 30 years experience fishing the waters of Tampa Bay and he’s always courteous with his fishing guests. Mike’s Tampa Bay fishing charter service caters to anglers of all skill levels, so if you’re in town on vacation or business give him a call if you want to go fishing. Captain Mike’s Fishing Guide Service is a Kid Friendly fishing service and Mike loves to teach children how to catch fish. He uses freshly caught live bait, almost exclusively. Before your fishing trip is scheduled to start, Mike goes out early to catch fresh live bait, so you can start fishing when you arrive at the first fishing spot.

Tampa Bay Inshore Fishing

Mike Turner’s charter fishing service provides all the bait, tackle, fishing license, cooler, and ice. The tackle provided is high quality and well maintained to ensure a successful day on the water. When you return to the dock at the end of your fishing adventure (if you desire) Captain Mike will filet and bag your fresh caught fish. Mike works hard for all his fishing guests to make certain that your fishing charter will be one that you will always remember and excited to tell your friends about. His guided fishing trips are very flexible, and Mike will tailor the charter to best fit your needs. If you want to fish in the morning and stop at a waterfront restaurant for lunch…you can do it. If you’re into sightseeing, sunsets or Eco-trips, Captain Mike can accommodate you.
