Capt. john turner
has been fishing the waters around
Tampa Bay, Tarpon Springs and New Port Richey for the past 20 years. He has
an extensive knowledge of the area, and it’s many rivers and saltwater
estuaries. Capt. John works hard to make sure every trip is more than just a
fishing trip; it’s an angling adventure! You'll will fish for Snook
along mangrove lined islands or in one of our many rivers. These fish
are known for there drag melting runs and awesome aerial displays.
Redfish also inhabit these very same waters. Redfish are referred to
as "Central Florida Bonefish" because of their long powerful runs that do
not quit until the equipment and angler have been tested to the max.
