We meet at the dock, stow away our belongings, and head out. Now we are off and on our way to a nearby flat to net our baitfish, usually scaled sardines, also called greenbacks. We will chum with a mixture of ingredients to attract the baitfish. Then, after seeing plenty of them in the chum line, I will throw a large cast net on them. Once we've gotten them in the baitwell, we are ready to go fishing the backwaters of our gorgeous Clearwater area. Throughout the day we may see many different and rare sights. Porpoise playfully foraging on schools of Mullet, Spotted Rays leaping high into the air, or Ospreys diving to grab small fish right out of the water. The areas surrounding Clearwater and Tampa Bay are some of the most beautiful in the world, and there is no better place to see them from than the deck of a boat on a fishing charter trip End of the fishing charter trip sunset. After catching plenty of gamefish, it is time to head in. As the sun sets in the distance, we get to the dock and I begin filleting the catch. Thanks for joining me. It's been another wonderful day on the water. What To Expect Onboard: The boat is a 23 foot Dorado. Designed for the ultimate in light tackle fishing, this boat can quickly and easily get you across the shallow flats only inches deep, to where the fish thrive, yet handle moderately rough seas while keeping you safe and dry. Powered by a Suzuki 175 HP four stroke motor, there is plenty of power to get you to those Tampa Bay area beaches when we're chasing the big Tarpon that visit Clearwater Beach each year. The boat is also equipped with a Porta Bracket jack plate used to raise and lower the motor, along with Bennett trim tabs, allowing the hull to plane off in very shallow water. Great light tackle fishing is all about getting into the skinny water, along the mangroves where the fish live. A Motor Guide 82 lb. thrust trolling motor allows us to sneak up on unsuspecting Redfish on the flats or maneuver along the rock jetties in search of that big Snook or Cobia. Comfortably seating the Captain and four anglers, there is plenty of deck space for light tackle fishing. Equipped with 10 rod holders for carrying several different rods, I am always prepared for any species fish that we encounter. Forty-five gallon live/release well holds hundreds of frisky baits as well as several game fish caught throughout the day. The vessel also offers lots of dry storage space for valuables, such as cameras and cell phones.

About Tampa Bay Area Fishing Guide Capt. Brian Caudill Hello. My name is Brian Caudill and I am a Fishing Guide in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I provide guide services for West Central Florida including Tampa Bay and surrounding waters. It is my pleasure to work hard to put all of my clients in the right place for our targeted fish. I am very personable, patient, and easy going. I understand that the charter fishing experience on my boat is about the customer. I hope the following insight about me will help you learn more about my love for fishing. Fishing for me began as a small child in the state of Kentucky. My earliest memories are of my father and I fishing streams, ponds, rivers and lakes for various species of small gamefish such as Bluegill, Redeye (Rockbass), Crappie, Smallmouth and Largemouth bass, or anything else that would bite. Somehow though, Dad always seemed to catch more fish. Upon moving to the Tampa Bay, Florida area in the late 80's, my father, still living in Kentucky, would often encourage me to put my knowledge of fishing freshwater to use in the numerous lakes Florida has to offer. For some reason, I just couldn't keep my mind off of the big fish swimming in the Gulf of Mexico and the backwater flats behind the barrier islands. So, with a few questions at the local bait shop, and the company of a couple local friends, I began to explore the inshore waters of West Central Florida. As time past, and my success in locating fish grew, my friend Jim and I began entering some local tournaments. Without a boat, and with limited ways of keeping bait alive, we would trudge for hundreds of yards to our fishing holes. To our surprise, we won a few of those tournaments. Consequently, the organizers would no longer allow us to fish without a boat, fearing some unfair advantage I suppose. So, now armed with the know how to catch these inshore species, I bought a boat and began fishing tournaments around Tampa Bay and all over the state. Some of those included two years on the Mercury/Ranger Professional Redfish Tour, CCA's Red/Snook Series in Punta Gorda, Florida, as well as the many local events from Clearwater to Tarpon Springs. After a few years, some more successful than others, I decided to take the necessary steps required to receive a United States Coast Guard license to be a Charter Fishing Guide. Now, I get a thrill from putting my customers where the fish are. It is a great joy to see the faces of children and adults alike experiencing what the Florida West Coast has to offer.
