Welcome to Action Fishing Adventures.  We are the premier tarpon fishing charter in Boca Grande, Florida.  Captain Mike Manning is a USCG licensed and insured captain and is known to be one of the best and most respected tarpon fishing guides on the west coast of Florida.

 

Captain Mike targets giant tarpon from March to November and smaller juvenile tarpon the rest of the year. We fish world famous Boca Grande, Charlotte Harbor, and Pine Island Sound in pursuit of giant tarpon.

Captain Mike has been a tarpon fishing guide for over 25 years with a passion for chasing tarpon in Boca Grande, Florida. We strive to give our clients the ultimate tarpon fishing experience on every trip. When it comes to tarpon fishing not only do you need a good guide, but you need good equipment and a boat made for tarpon fishing in Boca Grande.

 

We also offer fishing charters in the Tampa Bay, Clearwater and St Petersburg area from Homosassa to Boca Grande.  We target Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, Kingfish, Shark and Grouper through Inshore Light Tackle fishing and Flats fishing which will challenge you while taking you to the edge of your ultimate fishing adventure.

Here at Action Fishing adventures we provide the best fishing tackle money can buy. We fish from a 24 foot Avenger with a tarpon tower, two trolling motors, and Raymarine Electronics.  This boat is not just any boat, it’s designed to fish inshore-saltwater shallow flats to offshore reefs. It’s also made just for chasing tarpon in and around Boca Grande. It’s the boat almost all fishing guides on the West coast of Florida want.  It’s safe, dry riding, and comfortable.

EXTENDED DAY TARPON TRIP

Includes 4 guests

Trip time: 7:00am to 7:00pm (12 hours)

100% if customer cancels within 7 days, 50% if within 3 days

No inshore gamefish is prized more for its size, power and leaping displays than the tarpon, and catching one earns you a unique place among anglers.

Boca Grande is the Tarpon Capital of the World. Boca Grande tarpon fishing is a phenomenon like nowhere else. It is a social spot for tarpon. Tarpon congregate in Boca Grande because of the steady supply of shrimp, crabs and various bait fish for the tarpon to feast on.  Tens of thousands of tarpon flock to the area in April thru July, feeding day and night as they prepare for spawning offshore.

Tampa Bay tarpon fishing options are numerous, with fish on the beaches north and south of the bay, as well as inside the bay itself. The main body of big fish arrive in the Tampa Bay region as spring turns to summer, but Tampa Bay tarpon fishing is unique in that it offers an extended season. As summer fades and fish disappear from the beaches and from Boca Grande to the south, tarpon move well up into Tampa Bay, where fishing around bridges and on backwater flats can continue until fall. 

There are even more options for off-season tarpon fishing. It is not unusual for us to find small tarpon of 5 to 40 pounds in canals and rivers even in the winter months. On light tackle or fly, these little silver kings can surprise you, as they often leap dozens of times during a fight, offering excellent sport on light tackle. If you haven’t scaled down your tackle to take these scaled-down silvers, you don’t know what you are missing.

All of our charters include your license, bait and tackle.

FLATS-INSHORE-NEARSHORE TRIP

Flats fishing is a general term we use for fishing the inshore areas for Snook, Redfish, Trout, cobia, Permit, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Sharks, and even Kingfish. During our flats fishing charter in Tampa Bay we fish for several types of these fish, the most common being Snook, Redfish, and Trout. On most charters we are able to catch all three of these species along with others types of fish. During the spring and fall we get a migration of Spanish Mackerel, and Kingfish. Most years the best months are March, April, October, and November for the spanish and kings. These months are also some of the best months for Snook and Redfish and sometimes we are able to catch all of these species on a single charter.

 

The spring time flats fishing is the best of the year. This is when we get our large schools of bait fish in from offshore.  The Snook come out from their winter homes to fatten up for their summer spawn. The Redfish school up in large schools on the flats. The Trout also gather in large schools for their migration offshore for the summer. The Spanish and King Mackerel are invading the beaches and artificial reefs looking for an easy meal. The Cobia are roaming the flats looking for food. The Sharks are also showing up looking the eat anything that moves. 

During the winter we mainly fish for large Trout and Redfish. The Trout fishing at this time of the year is insane. It’s not uncommon to catch 50 or 60 Trout in two hours of fishing. These Trout can sometimes be up to 30 inches long and weigh almost 10 pounds. The Redfish fishing during the winter is not as good as the Trout fishing, but they are available to catch. The Snook fishing can be slow during the winter months because they are very sensitive to the cold weather. 

All of our charters include your license, bait and tackle.
