"the TARPON CAPITAL OF THE WORLD" 

 

Capt. Mike Witfoth

"Tarpon & Light Tackle Specialist"

NO FISH NO PAY GUARANTEE...................it's that simple!

 

Capt. Mike Witfoth                                 

 

Coverage Area:  West Central Florida, to include Tampa Bay, Clearwater, Dunedin, Honeymoon Island, Palm Harbor, Ozona, Tarpon Springs, Anclote Key, New Port Richey, Hudson and the near shore waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  Boca Grande during the months of May & June.

 

Species Targeted:  Capt. Mike can consistently target any species of game fish that patrol the inshore and near shore waters of the West Central Florida Coast, to include Giant Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, Shark, Mackerel, Cobia, Kingfish, Permit, Snapper, Goliath Grouper (a.k.a., Jewfish) and Jack Crevalle.  His specialty however, is targeting Giant Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout and Jack Crevalle.

Methods:  Light Tackle Spin & Plug Tackle and Fly-fishing.  Artificial Lures & Live Bait.                                                                             

                                                                                                              

 

Near-shore/Offshore Charters:  In addition to flats & backcountry charters, Capt. Mike also runs charters in the Gulf of Mexico.  Fish the reefs, wrecks and open Gulf for Shark, Barracuda, Amberjack, Kingfish, Little Tunny, Permit, Cobia, Grouper and Snapper.  Unlike many offshore Guides who run "Offshore Only Boats";  if the Gulf is uncomfortably rough, Capt. Mike can salvage the day by targeting Snook, Trout, Redfish, Tarpon and Jack Crevalle in protected waters.  One of the many advantages of running a "Bay" style boat.

 

Tournament Charters:  Available for anywhere in coverage area. Click HERE for more information.

Sight Seeing & Nature Tours:  Available for personalized sightseeing & nature tours. 

Maximum Anglers:  Five depending on species targeted and methods.  Prefer three. 

 

Boat:  Capt. Mike is sponsored by Ranger Boats and runs a 23' Ranger Bay Ranger.  Called the “Ultimate Bay Boat”, the 2300 Bay Ranger has quickly become one of the most sought after "Multi-Purpose" boats in the Guide Industry.  She will safely and comfortably carry and fish up to four anglers for the Hot Kingfish & Little Tunny Bite in the morning, and quietly maneuver through the shallow flats in search of Redfish, Snook & Tarpon in the afternoon.  With her low profile design, the Carolina-style bow flare and extra wide 8' 4 1/2" beam, she delivers more comfort, less wind resistance, and an extremely dry ride. The large, unobstructed casting decks are ideal for fly-fishing and the oversized gunnels deliver a 360° fishing platform.

 

Charter includes:  Live, dead & artificial bait, tackle, fishing licenses, sodas & water, ice, fish cleaning & bagging and no fish no pay guarantee.  Our professional and friendly attitude is free of charge.
