Head First Fishing Adventures

Capt. Joseph Raines Saint Petersburg, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

CAPTAIN JOE GUARANTEES YOU’LL CATCH FISH!

See first hand why Tampa Bay is considered to be home to some of the best fishing in the whole of the United States. With 21 years inshore fishing the Gulf of Mexico, licensed guide Joe Raines is waiting to take you on an action packed fishing adventure that is fun for the whole family.

You will be fishing aboard a new model of a well equipped 20 ft Sportsman center console that can accommodate up to four anglers. With kids always fishing for free with Head First Fishing Adventures, this is the perfect set-up for a fun-filled family outing.

A huge variety of species call Tampa Bay home, meaning there is always something to catch! On a trip with captains Joe you could expect to land a range of fish, such as Redfish, Snook, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Cobia, Flounder, Snapper, and Grouper. Jigging, popping, fly fishing, spin fishing, and conventional light tackle fishing are all techniques that could be used on your trip, depending on the fish you want to target and what you want to do.

Both hardcore anglers and newbies are welcome aboard with Head First Fishing. The guides consider giving people awesome fishing experiences to be their main reward, and they love to see the look on peoples’ faces when they hook their first fish or boat their fish of a lifetime.
