Gone Fishing Charters
About your Trip.
The Tampa, Tampa Bay, and Clearwater areas offer a broad array of incredible fishing charter target species. Your Tampa fishing charter begins fishing along our beautiful, world class beaches for game fish like Snook, whose drag screaming runs and jumps will excite even veteran anglers. If redfish are your primary target, you can pursue these tough battlers out on the Tampa Bay fishing flats, or in tight against the mangroves or other shoreline structure. Speckled sea trout represent our most readily available game fish in Tampa, FL. Trout can be caught most times of the year and often, from late November to early April, in great abundance. During the spring and fall months, near shore fishing,(2 - 9 miles out) offers the opportunity to catch a wide range of species including Spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, kingfish, grouper, and others. All of these species can be caught in Tampa and Tampa Bay using artificial lures or live bait.
Gone Fishing Charters prides itself in being fully fishing charter licensed and insured, providing high quality tackle plus a brand new 2019 Sheaffer boat. Fishing is a great sport that can be enjoyed by everyone from kids to adults,and anglers of all skill levels. Fishing charters are not limited to season or location, providing a healthy diversion from daily life. Take time to go fishing, relax, and create fishing trip memories that will last a lifetime!

About Your Captain
As a friend of mine once said, I feel sorry for anyone who hasn't discovered their passion in life. We all have one inside of us. It's that activity that brings you immense satisfaction. Captain Stewart Ames, Tampa and Clearwater Fishing ChartersAt seven years of age, I was introduced to fishing and knew it would be a part of my life from there forward. Although I fished whenever the opportunity arose, it would be a long time before I would actually become a guide. I went to high school, then college. Next, I held a variety of sales positions that took me to every state in the US. Then, in late 2005, it was time....time to walk away to spend my working hours doing something that I had always really wanted to do...fish. I pulled the plug to pursue my dream...become a fishing guide in the great state of Florida....arguably one of the best states to fish in the entire United States. My intent was to offer the kind of service that I would expect from a top quality, professional, guide. I would cater my trips to the age and skill level of those on my boat to maximize my customer’s enjoyment. Most importantly, I would let my passion and intensity for catching fish show each and every time on the water. My commitment is to provide all of my customers with this type of experience.
At time of booking, your captain will answer any questions you may have about your trip. Typical topics would include cancellation policy, weather, fish to be targeted, bringing young anglers or anglers with special needs etc.
