Hello and welcome to my website. I look forward to having you experience Tampa Bay at its best! Fish for Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, Kingfish, Shark, Permit, Grouper and Snapper. I offer inshore and near shore light tackle fishing to provide you with a challenging and exhilarating day on the water. Check out the photo galleries and you’ll see plenty of happy customers! I work hard to make your day on beautiful Tampa Bay a successful one. During your charter you may also get the opportunity to see dolphins, sea turtles, pelicans, manatees, and a wide variety of birds in their natural habitat.
The above video from Tampa's ABC Action News includes an Interview with Captain Russ Schnering talking about a recent fishing charter with clients that were hooked up and fighting a large wahoo at the time when a young female Great White shark was circling their boat. Russ was fishing 50 miles offshore Anna Maria Island where he captured amazing underwater video with his GoPro camera and as Captain Russ explained "You never know what you're going to see out there” .
