Charlton’s Reef Charters

Capt. Tom Charlton Tampa, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Inshore and near offshore fishing aboard my 20 foot Mako center console, for one to three people for Snook, Trout, Redfish, Cobia, Shark, Tarpon, Gag Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, and many others.

Charlton Reef Charters offers the best Tampa fishing charter for your group of three! For almost 40 years Captain Tom Charlton has fished Tampa Bay, and knows the perfect spots for your trip! He’s personally endured good weather (and sunburns) and bad weather (storms and fierce winds) to know exactly when, where, and how to put you on the fish! Book your Charlton Reef Charters fishing trip today and learn his secrets (without having to endure the sunburns and storms!)

Charlton Reef Charters offers full-service, premiere Tampa Bay fishing charters seven days a week; weather permitting. Captain Tom is a Coast Guard licensed, CPR-Trained, Licensed by the FWC (Florida Wildlife Commission), and Insured Captain in the Tampa area. His permits are good for three anglers aboard his 20ft Mako Center Console; and insurance covers all passengers.

For your Tampa fishing trip, we can go bottom fishing, drift fishing, spinning, deep sea fishing, or fishing with light tackle. And don’t worry if you’re new to the hobby; Captain Tom is happy to teach you the tips of the trade. Sharing his love for fishing is one of the perks of being a Tampa Bay Charter Captain!

All fishing tackle, bait, and ice is provided in the cost of the trip. Charlton Reef Charters also cleans and bags your catch. You are welcome to bring your own favorite drinks and food. Also be sure to wear a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and rain jacket during certain seasons. Feel free to ask Captain Tom before the trip what you should consider packing.

Your inshore or offshore Tampa fishing adventure is just a click away! Book now with Charlton Reef Charters and let’s go fishing!
