Tampa Bay is home to some of the world’s best fishing. Known for big snook, monster reds, and even an occasional permit on the beach, you’ll be in for an amazing day out on the water. Other target species include trout, tripletail, snapper, and the occasional tarpon or grouper.
Captain Ken Salos of Fin and Feather inshore guide service will provide all tackle, outfits (rods and reels), bait, fishing licenses, ice, water and safety equipment. When fishing with Fin and Feather, you will be provided with top shelf rods and reels that you would want to fish with on your own boat or expect to fish with at any other high-end outfitter.
I highly recommend wearing polarized sunglasses for my anglers who will be fly fishing and site casting fish with artificial and live bait. I usually have a bottle of sunscreen in the boat, but please pack a bottle as this is not something I offer. Snacks and drinks are the only other items I do not provide. My boat has two built in coolers, so all items can be transferred to keep the deck clear! Alcoholic beverages are permitted as well!
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.
Tampa, Florida • 10-19 years of experience
After working on an offshore fishing boat as a mate shortly after high school, he decided to buy his first charter boat and build what is now Tampa Bay’s premier Inshore guide service. 6 years ago, an opportunity arose that brought him to the Low Country of South Carolina to fish under a very reputable Captain where he not only fine-tuned his fishing techniques, but also helped him become the quintessential guide he is now.
After chasing Redfish in South Carolina for six years, Ken is back home and can be found in the upper Tampa Bay all the way to Anna Maria Island Florida, fishing for Redfish, Snook, Trout, Permit and Triple Tail amongst many other species that we have in this world class fishery we are gifted with. When you fish with Fin and Feather, we hope that you experience the same professionalism and quality of fishing you would receive in the Florida Keys, Louisiana and Charleston South Carolina.
