Don’t be undersold by third-party booking agencies and fledgling discount guide services using marketing gimmicks. Also, be skeptical of guides who don’t post their rates, but ask you to call for rates or so-called special discounts, only to give you the run-around. One thing I’ve learned during my 22 years in this industry, you get what you pay for! When you call Afishionado Guide Services, you speak to me direct.

Expert Fishing Guide Captain Wade Osborne

Gift Certificates Available for all Occasions

Tampa/St. Petersburg fishing guide, Captain Wade Osborne is among the best in the business when it comes to providing world-class light tackle sportfishing for tarpon, snook, redfish, trout, king mackerel and more. Very few fishing guides provide his level of knowledge, customer service and quality equipment to their clients. His 22 years of guiding professionally FULL-TIME in the Tampa Bay region has propelled him to an elite status on Florida’s west coast.

Whether Osborne is guiding one or six anglers to some of the world’s best light tackle fishing, you’ll never catch him fishing himself or sitting on his butt, even on an eight-hour charter. That’s because he’s too busy rigging, chumming, baiting hooks and releasing fish. He prides himself as being the hardest working fishing guide in the industry and remains on his feet tirelessly during your entire charter making sure you have the very best fishing experience available for your money.

Buyer beware: These days, it seems everybody and their brother is a fishing guide. Unfortunately, many of these captains are part-timers which use inferior equipment, vessels, have zero customer service skills or just recently obtained their USCG license and have little experience. Then, there are the charter booking agencies who don’t care whose boat they stick you on, as long as, they take your hard-earned money. These unscrupulous charter services sadly leave the consumer very disappointed and believing that the fishing in Florida is highly overrated.

Here’s what defines Afishionado Guide Services as World-Class:
World-Class Service, World-Class Tackle, World-Class Fishing!
After all, Florida is “The Fishing Capital of The World!”

The longevity and success of my business was built on repeat clientele and referrals. Please take a moment and read through a couple of my testimonials to see what they say. Fish with me once, and you’ll be hooked!
