Tampa Tarpon Charters Rates

Tampa Tarpon Fishing Is...

Just What The Doctor Ordered

When choosing a charter company to take out family, friends or clients keep in mind MadRed Fishing Charter Rates are not only for a boat ride to the fishing grounds. Rates also cover things like the vast knowledge of Tampa Bay waters, on the fly instruction and the decades spent learning and patterning fish to make your charter the most productive it can be.

As your host, I take pride in the fact that I offer exciting Tarpon charters in Tampa Fl. I use top of the line equipment and multiple boats to make your fishing charter one to remember!  So, if you’re an experienced angler and  want to toss plastics deep in the back country on the skiff or novice and want to fun fish on the bay boat with the family, friends or clients don’t settle for a lesser experience for a lesser rate.  I look forward to fishing with you.

How much is a Tarpon Fishing Charter in Florida?

Tarpon Fishing Rates are for up to 4 anglers. Parties of 4 or more will need to have one boat and captain for every 4 people. Rates listed are per boat. Also every charter is provided with waters, gatorades and soft drinks iced down for you. BYOB . Catch and release is highly encouraged and appreciated. However should you desire a meal, no problem. Often there are good tasting fish around to harvest, trout, snapper, spanish mackerel, sheepshead and silver trout depending on seasons.  Capt Mickey works with Hula Bay to do a hook and cook if you’d like to go that route.

All reservations will need to be accompanied by a $200.00 deposit. The $200.00 will be deducted from the total price at the end of the charter. If you need to cancel, fall ill, or have a change of heart, the deposit will be refundable up until 72 hours of the scheduled charter. Within 72 hours of the charter, the deposit cannot be refunded. ( the preceding is on a case by case basis, I’m reasonable) If you don’t show up and fail to make contact while I wait at the dock for you, the full rate will be charged.

Capt Mickey has a network of guides he works closely with. Sometimes he is already booked on your desired day for your preferred trip. If this is the case you will be set up with one of the area's top-notch captains. Like Captain Mickey, they will be fun, positive, hard-working, and give you a first-rate experience whether it's fishing or a cruise trip, your satisfaction is priority one, and Tim and his group work hard to make that happen. The Tampa Charter Fishing Rates stay consistent with the group of Captains Mickey works with.

Tampa Tarpon Fishing Rates may change throughout the season and depends on what species is preferred, what angling method is used, and how many are in your party.

All fish that are harvested for consumption will be cleaned and bagged by the Captain.

Trips canceled for weather will be rescheduled if possible, if not you will be refunded. Capt Mickey has been doing this a long time and sometimes it's just not going to be a good day due to weather, fronts, etc…In this case, trips may be shuffled around to get everyone fished that we can. Sometimes this may find you with a different Captain, not to worry Mad Red Charters only works with the best in the business, all veteran captains with a lifetime of experience fishing Tampa Bay.

Serving Tampa Bay, St Petersburg, Tampa, and Homosassa. However, I can only be in one place at a time and I work with some top-notch charter Captains in the areas other than Tampa Bay (my home waters) so if you can’t travel far or just wanna fish where you are I can set you set up with the right guide to make your fishing charter one to remember!
