Florida fishing charters. Light tackle and flyfishing on the saltwater flats and backcountry of Tampa , Boca Grande, Clearwater, St. Petersburg,Tarpon Springs to Homosassa including Orlando and the Disneyworld area.
Fishing charters on the Florida west central, and southwest Florida Gulf coast offer world class saltwater flats and backcountry fishing. Gamefish such as tarpon, redfish, snook and trout, are year round prey to light tackle and flyfishing enthusiasts from around the globe. Florida fishing charters offer something for every angler, from novice to expert. Our Florida fishing charters are intensified by the local knowledge of Florida fishing guide Captain Robert McCue, a full time professional, 8 time world record breaking Florida fishing guide.
Florida fishing the inshore, nearshore, flats, and
backcountry saltwaters of Tampa Bay, St.Petersburg, Clearwater, Boca Grande, Tarpon
Springs, and the surrounding Orlando area (Disneyworld) ...you will be astonished by the
beauty of the Gulf of Mexico and her surrounding tributaries. Relax and enjoy the posh
as Capt. McCue guides you with a professional stealth approach.
A noticeable change of the shoreline takes place as you travel north from Tarpon Springs. The white sugar-sand beaches of the barrier islands of Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Boca Grande are replaced by gin-clear grass flats. With depths dropping about a foot a mile, these prestigious Florida grass flats extend as much as 10 miles into the Gulf of Mexico and act as the home plate for the ultimate in fishing Florida flats and backcountry using light tackle and flyfishing methods. In the southern portion of our home Saltwater Backcountry and Flats Fishing fishing grounds, black mangrove lined creeks and rivers are replaced by golden saw grasses and spring- fed creeks to the north.
Clear spring- fed creeks and the saltwater of the Gulf of Mexico create two unique features. First, the mix of fresh water and saltwater create delicate estuaries in which Florida game fish mature and feed . Second, the mix creates hard bottom, oyster bars, rocks and plush sea grasses of all types. These natural structures serve as feeding areas to Florida game fish and act as a deterrent to those who haven't spent years learning the water. Hence less fishing pressure, fishing guides and more productive Florida fishing charters.
Our area of Florida is deep in history and served as the fishing grounds of native Florida Indians and celebrities such as baseball legends Ted Williams and Babe Ruth. Small fishing villages line the Gulf coast to the north. On our Florida fishing charters you may actually view the haunts of Florida Indian mounds, and the historical places of world famous Florida fishing guest. In addition, you may view your query in the gin-clear water before you cast....major intoxication!!!!

Myers, and 80 miles south of Tampa Bay...there is tons of fun to be had by the entire family in addition to fishing charters.
A great deal of wildlife can be enjoyed on our Florida fishing charters. Eight species of heron, three species of egrets, two species of ebis, ten species of terns and gulls, brown and white pelicans, Man-O-Wars, cormorants, sandhill cranes, osprey, American bald eagles, black skimmers, and on occasion roseate spoonbills frequent the area. Manatees inhabit the waters and are most often sighted during the winter and early spring. In the upper reaches of the rivers and springs, gators on occasion can be spotted sunning and basking.
This area of Florida is very shallow. For this reason we use a highly specialized flats boat to access the flats and backcountry waters our Florida gamefish frequent. The flats boat also offers the advantage in its mobility in the running of our fishing charters. The "Bounty Hunter" can be easily trailered to the fish and plays an essential role to the guide in following the tarpon along its migration paths from Boca Grande to Homosassa. Further, we are able to come to you for your convenience.
We are located two hours from the Orlando and Disneyworld attractions, 45 minutes from the Tampa attractions and the attractions at Homosassa and Weeki Wachee. Boca Grande is about 1.5 hours drive from Tampa International. Tampa offers professional football, baseball, hockey, soccer and arena football. Pro baseball spring training camps are numerous in the area. A dog track, Jai Lai, the Seminole Indian Reservation, Busch Gardens and a casino boat are all within a short driving distance. So are some of Florida's best beaches and state parks.
