My charter rates reflect the Tampa Bay area industry standard for top-quality, professional FULL-TIME fishing guides. I’ve made my living exclusively from guiding since 1997. This time spent on the water has given me a solid understanding of tidal conditions and yearly fish patterns which in turn, enables me to provide my customers a superior fishing experience.

I accept credit/debit cards and cash only. NO PERSONAL CHECKS!

Don’t be undersold by third-party booking agencies and fledgling discounted 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. Some charter services even have the audacity to charge an additional 3-4% for the privilege of you paying by plastic. I don’t do that because, I consider it the cost of doing business!

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.

All charters are based on a flat rate depending on the number of people in your party and include ice, bottled water, live-bait, artificial lures, flies, fishing licenses, light tackle or fly, rods and reels. I also fillet, bag and ice the fish, should you decide to keep some for dinner.
