Tampa fishing charters specializing in inshore and nearshore fishing for redfish, snook, tarpon, and other Tampa Bay species. We are a family friendly business offering a variety of trips for all ages. Centrally located providing fishing trips for Tampa, Ruskin, St. Petersburg and Clearwater anglers.
Water temperatures are high right now and fishing during the heat of the day can be slow. Water will cool slightly once our daily thundershowers begin.
Snook fishing will remain strong throughout the early summer. Fishing for reds will only get better. The larger sea trout will eventually head for their summer hiding places in deeper water.
Mangrove snapper will be the easiest catch of the summer with limits of fish easily caught within an hour or so of fishing.
Remember to stay hydrated and get off the water before the thundershowers kick up. Summer fishing can be very productive fishing early morning and early evening.

Was lucky to spend this past Friday with Sean and had a great trip. Bait was hard to come by but he never gave up. The bite was slow but got to land 6 nice snook, broke a few off and lost a few jumping. Capt Sean is very knowledgeable about all aspects of being a guide and all around great person. I honestly enjoyed my trip with him and look forward to fish with him again in the future”

I’ve used guides from Canada to the Abacoes and Capt. Goddard is tops. A great guy, family man, expert guide. It is rare that I can get my three grown children together in one place at the same time for fun. Capt Goddard made the day special, putting us on the fish even though conditions were less than ideal. The photos tell the story. Thanks to Capt Goddard for an amazing day on Tampa Bay ,”

My partner and I went out with Sean today and we couldn’t have had a better time. Sean went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time and made great use of his expertise and local knowledge in order for us to catch some awesome fish. My partner almost caught a 100lb+ shark on light tackle! So if you want to spend the day with a knowledgeable, friendly, all- round great guy, who will do his utmost to put you on to the fish, look no further. In summary, the fishing was amazing, the company was great and the overall experience was unforgettable. We will definitely book another trip with Captain Sean when we return to Florida. Thanks again Sean. We loved it”

Chartered a trip for my dad, myself and my 9yo son as an early Father’s day gift. Set out on a Thursday. Captain Sean had us on the water from 8am-3:30pm. We had a blast! It was the first time any of us had done a guided fishing charter. After bait fishing, our first spot was for Mackerel. My bait wasn’t in the water more than 5 minutes before I reeled my first one in, a healthy 14 incher! It went on like that for most of the day! Captain Sean was great! Other than the great advice and general conversation, he had us geared up and lines in the water all day! Apparently, it’s common to lose a lot of hooks during Mackerel fishing and we lost plenty, but Captain Sean put another rod in our hands while he replaced hooks! He made sure we always had a line in the water and a good thing too because the Mackerel were biting all day! He did all the dirty work too, unhooking the fish we’d reel in, which proved to be quite a bloody task! After bringing in 15 Mackerel and losing about 15-20 for various reasons (not legal size, stolen bait, belly hooked, stolen hooks) we headed to more shallow waters for Redfish and Snook. We weren’t as lucky in the mangroves, had 1 Snook that got away. It was a great time for us and something that I’d most definitely do again!”

Capt. Sean is a professional and knowledgeable skipper. We had a great day on the water with him this summer. Looking forward to spring when we can fish with him again”
What a fantastic day !...more
What a fantastic day ! Captain Sean knows these waters and he will have you saying “Fish On” all day long. He is kind and makes the day very enjoyable ! Highly recommend this charter.”
Professional, passionate, and fun!...more
Professional, passionate, and fun! Captain Sean showed us the beautiful Tampa Bay waters and got us hooked on 6 species of fish in one day. Took home over 20 fish that day! Sean is a professional, and is very efficient in what he does. Book your charter, then all you have to do is show up and fish! From line rigging, to educating us on fishing technique, to laughs, and lots of fish…I have no reason to book elsewhere. The 3 of us fit comfortably on Sean’s squeaky clean center console boat and had a plethora of tackle and rods. I wish we could post photos here because the fish we reeled in this March were big, and frequent. Sean kept us informed as well as laughing with his stress free personality and seamless charter. The only thing missing were 10 more hours to our day! Thanks again Sean, we will be back!! He is Professional, friendly, has the right pricing, is well equipped/knowledgeable, and fun!”
What a great time!...more
What a great time! I went out not sure what to expect since I’m still relatively new to fishing in the Tampa Bay area. Captain Goddard brought me to a huge school of Bonito and he taught me to fish them with top water lures while they were in a feeding frenzy. I caught my largest fish to date on this trip at just over 12 pounds. We spent the rest of the trip trolling and I just missed pulling in a Goliath Grouper. I had such a great time and can’t wait to do it again! I highly recommend Inshore 2 Offshore Fishing Adventures and would encourage everyone from the novice to the experienced angler to take a trip with Captain Goddard!”

My son and I booked a charter with Capt. Goddard and had an absolutely stellar day! Capt. Goddard was not only patient with our lack of experience but taught us accordingly to not only successfully catch fish but some really big fish! I highly recommend Inshore 2 Offshore if you not only want to have a great day fishing but also a great day catching! Thanks Capt. Goddard for the great memories!”
