Jason,

I wanted to again thank you for a trip that will be remembered for a long time.

Your hard work, knowledge and fishing skills were very much appreciated by my two sons and me.

This trip will be one of the highlights of my 65 years of fishing. To bring a large Tarpon to the boat has always been one of my dreams and to bring 2 in one day to the boat was an absolute thrill.

In addition to my two tarpon Robert boated two and Ken boated three.

We wish again to thank you and look forward to fishing with you in the future.

Thanks

Don Arthur

May brings some great inshore fishing in the Tampa Bay areas and while just about every species but have to be tops on the list for the months of May and June. Tarpon for the most part are a migratory fish as they move up the gulf coast every year and their stop in the Tampa area this time of year. Tarpon are pound for pound of the best fighting fish in the ocean and sizes range from 50 to 200lbs. Tarpon typically run along the beaches, passes, and bridges that are around Tampa Bay. It’s not uncommon to see those just feet off the beach first thing in the morning as they breach the surface and gulp up oxygen. Tarpon fishing is typically catch and release but is a fish of a lifetime to catch and I promise you will not be disappointed when you battle with the silver king of the bay. If you are interested in scheduling a Tarpon charter or just have some questions about any of our fishing services just shoot us an email at captjasonp@gmail.com or call 813-727-9890

March has ended and April is upon us. This means great fishing and most importantly consistent weather. March is a great month to fish in but with winter still looming you have to deal with some harsh cold fronts and cold weather, April is the month that most of that finally comes to an end. You can expect to to have great weather, calms seas, and great fishing for just about every species that swims in the waters of Tampa Bay. The next question is what fish are biting? Well Ill go ahead and give you a quick run down on what to expect when fishing in Tampa Bay.

Tarpon- season opens at the end of April but the big push of migration fish will start showing up by the thousands in mid May. Typically the Silver King will start running the west cost of Florida looking for Crabs, Threadfin Hearing and many other types of bait that crosses their path. I’m adding Tarpon to the top of the list because if you are planning a trip to Tampa Bay and plan on Targeting Tarpon you need to get your date reserved now. Dates are filling fast for Tarpon season and the demand is always high for Tarpon fishing May. Its as easy as calling us at 813-727-9890 or shoot us an email and we will answer any questions that you might have captjasonp@gmail.com

Snook- fishing is always on the top of every anglers to catch list as they are one of our top targeted species. Snook fishing really kicks off around mid February  as fish start to make the transition from the rivers to the flats. March was a great month for Snook and April will be just as good. As the big fish make their transition from the flats they are looking to fatten up to get ready for the summer spawn. This means some great Snook fishing all the way through the summer months. If you have never caught a Snook its something everyone should experience.

Trout- fishing continues to be stellar in April as the big breeders stage up in the beautiful grass flats of Tampa Bay. Look for the bigger fish to hang around Oyster Bars, Sand holes, and Deep cuts with good tidal flow.Trout fishing is great for both the novice and advanced angler. They a great to target with both live and artificial baits and make for a great table fair. Trout fishing is good for all anglers and everyone should get out and try it.

Red fish- Is another species that tops the list for April. While March fishing is great most other inshore species Red fish can be hit or miss. April is a different story. The mullet run begins in April and along with the mullet come big schools of Reds milling the flats in search of all types of crustaceans that roam the flats. Reds can be a blast to target as they typically run in huge schools this time of year. You can expect to have some great rod  bending action in Tampa Bay. If you are looking for some great fishing you have come to the right place. One call gets you set for a trip of a lifetime 813-727-9890 or email us at captjasonp@gmail.com.

If you like mild weather and sunny days mixed with some great fishing then Tampa Bay is the place for you. While most of the country is shoveling snow and ice we have been catching nice Trout, Redfish, and Cobia this time of year. Although we do get some cold days they typically don’t hang around and temperatures quickly climb back into the mid 70s and fishing picks right back up. It’s a great time to visit Tampa and book a charter.

Trout is our highlighted species this time of year with just about every grass flat holding tons of Trout. On charters we are targeting Sea Trout with Zman soft plastic artificial baits. If you are a novice and have always wanted to throw artificial baits then Trout is a great fish to target. You will catch a ton of fish without having to be very technical. We are also having a good bit of success using live shrimp suspended under a Cajun Thunder float. Both have been very successful tactics when fishing for Trout.

Redfish is also a good species to target this time of year and while most of a bit smaller catching Reds on artificial baits is an awesome experience. With water clarity being great this time of year sight cast for Reds on the flats as small schools of fish move into the potholes around the back country. If water temperatures are lower from a passing cold front then we might opt to using a free lined live shrimp. This is also a great technique for reds as they are naturally bottom feeders. Cooler water temperatures make redfish fight that much harder.

Sheep head (AKA Convict fish) is another species that is a great fish to catch. They are also one of the most overlooked fish but they should not be as they are one of the best fighting and tasting inshore fish. Using #1 Daiichi circle hook tipped with a small shrimp will be the best way to catch Sheep head. They are structure oriented fish so any type of wreck or rocky ledge will be holding the big breeders. You will have a blast catching Sheep head.

If you are visiting the Tampa area for the winter and would like to get out and do some fishing, give us a call at 813-727-9890 or email us at captjasonp@gmail.com I promise you it will be worth the trip. Tight Lines!

Well it’s the end of the year and everyone is busy with shopping for Christmas, cooking for Thanksgiving, or Traveling to see relatives. While schedules can be pushed for time remembers you always have to make a little time for fishing. I promise you that if you can set some time aside to book a fishing charter in Tampa Bay, it will be worth your while. Here is a little sneak peak of what you can expect when you get out with Steady Action Fishing Charters.

November and December offer some of the best light tackle inshore fishing Tampa Bay has to offer and is only minutes from the dock. This means lots of fishing and very little riding. Snook are really starting to rebound from the 2010 fish kill and we are catching plenty of BIG fish as they migrate towards the rivers to prepare for the heart of winter. Light tackle spinning gear is our tackle do choice which means most anybody from novice to expert can fish.

 Trout and Redfish also continue to be great this time of year. Just about every flat on Tampa Bay holds good numbers of both species and are a blast to catch. Most targeted areas are the miles of mangroves that filter Tampa Bay. These areas are like a nursery for most of our Game fish in the area and make for some great fishing. If you are in the area for the holidays or just a local needing a break from your fast pace daily activities then you need to get out and enjoy some of the best fishing of the year. It’s an email or phone call away. 813-727-9890 or captjasonp@gmail.com.

Tempatures have dropped into the 70s and fishing has been abosolutly outstanding. If you are looking to get out and enjoy some of the best inshore fishing Tampa Bay has to offer no other time is better. On a day out on the water in Tampa Bay you can catch plenty of Snook,Redfish, and Trout just about every day this time of year as most of the gamefish move into the shallow water. This time of the year is a great time to fish the flats as fish feed frequently before our winter approaches. Most fishing is done in water depths of 2 foot or less and we mostly use light tackle spinning gear. This means that you can have a get day on the water and catch fish no matter what your angling level is. If you are considering a trip into the Tampa area, you definitly need to do a Tampa fishing charter while you are in town.

Being a native to the Tampa Florida area I can tell you that fishing is a way of life here. I have been blessed with the opportunity to go fishing just about any time I wanted for most of my life. Having a boat before I could drive and a fishing rod in hand before I could walk just made it a way of life. Now making a living and fishing as a profession in Tampa Bay, I often look back to the times fishing as a kid to remind me just how fun it was and this often takes the business side away just for a few moments . As most of you know we often do this as adults and those things that we did as a youngster that we thought were not a big deal end up staying with us for our entire lives. For me fishing has always been the first thought from the past and some of the best memories in my life. Although I never had the opportunity or money to fish with a charter when I was a kid, I still had some great times on the water.  I can tell you that learning tips, techniques, and how to catch fish was very difficult with a huge learning curve. I did a lot more fishing and a lot less catching, but I still would not trade the memories for anything as that drives me to this day.  So weather its booking a Tampa fishing charter with me on Tampa Bay, taking you little one to the Sunshine Skyways Fishing Pier , or just dropping a line off the seawall to see what you get one of Tampa bay’s long bridges, the key is to just get out on the water and take your family fishing. Trust me when I tell you, they will thank you years down the road. If you are coming to Tampa Bay and would like to have a family fun day on the water and see the beautiful sites of our Bay and miles of Backcountry waters, just drop us a call at 813-727-9890 or email captjasonp@gmail.com. We offer a fun filled fishing charter with all licensing and tackle include. Tight lines

Fall fishing for Tampa Bay is just around the corner, and with cooler weather a month or so away Tampa Fishing will be as good as it gets. If you are planning a trip to the Tampa area whether it’s fishing or business you should look at taking a little time to do some Tampa Flats Fishing. The Tampa Bay fishery is one of the best in the state and fall fishing is one of the best when it comes to inshore. Water temperatures should drop to the mid to 70 degree mark and that opens up endless possibilities for fishing in Tampa Bay. Snook fishing on the flats should be great as we head into the latter part of the year, redfishing are already schooling up by the hundreds on the flats in search of all types of crustaceans, Trout LOVE the cooler water that Tampa flats fishing offers and they also make for a great table fair. If this has not convinced you to book a Tampa fishing charter maybe we could encourage you with some great nearshore fishing in the Gulf Of Mexico. Kingfish make their big run up the coast by the thousands and can be caught just off the beaches within 10 miles. Grouper, Mackerel and many others species can all be targeted and caught on you next fishing trip to Tampa Bay. Dont wait to book you next inshore fishing charter just call us direct 813-727-9890 or shoot us and email to ask any questions captjasonp@gmail.com. Tight Lines!
