Meet Your Guide
I grew up in the Clearwater, Tampa Bay area and have fished the waters from Clearwater north to Tarpon Springs for 45 years. My earliest fishing memories are watching my father castnet for mullet in western Tampa bay near Allen’s Creek back in the mid 60’s. As a teenager I would wade fish the Dunedin Causeway and Honeymoon Island area just north of Clearwater. Sand Key, just south of Clearwater Beach was also a favorite place of mine to fish in the early 70’s. Several of my local guide buddies weren’t even born yet.
Staying in the Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Pinellas Co. or Tampa Bay area? Visiting Clearwater to see Winter the Dolphin? Take a private Dolphin viewing trip in the home waters of Winter the Dolphin. Try a day of inshore Clearwater fishing. I will work very hard to make your Tampa Bay Florida area fishing trip enjoyable.
