Split Charters - December 2012

Limit fishing for Tampa TroutIf you have an interest in splitting the cost of a fishing charter with another angler in the coming month, please let me know.  I will do my best to pair you up.  Costs for a 4, 6 and 8 hour split cost charters are $237.50, $287.50 and $337.50 respectively.  Each side of the split can bring a total of two anglers.  Should you choose to bring someone with you, the charge for the additional person is $25.  It typically takes a week or two to arrange a split charter, so please bear this in mind when planning your trip. Winter trout fishing has been strong over the last few weeks, with limits being caught on most trips.  Redfish have stayed around in above average numbers due to the lingering warm weather and, as a result, a few decent fish are typically being caught on days with strong high tides.

December 2012 - Winter Trout fishing Seminar

Tampa Jig fishing for winter troutTampa Fishing charter for Big troutThis Thursday Evening, the 6th of December, at West Marine in Clearwater, I will be giving a seminar on catching large winter seatrout.  These "biggest" trout of the year have already arrived and have been feeding well over the last few weeks.  The weather forecast for the next 7 - 8 days looks very favorable so I would expect the feed to continue. Discussion topics will center around what tackle to use and what tactics are most productive when targeting these fish.  As always, West Marine will have free pizza and drinks and will have some store product and a gift certificate to raffle off.  I look forward to seeing you there.

If you have a family of fisher people or friends / relatives coming to town, a fishing trip is a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend the day together. Gift certificates will be mailed to you so there is no need to go shopping. They arrive in a Gone Fishing Charters Envelope and will include a business card and  four color brochure describing your gift. Shopping for one is as easy as responding to this email.  You'll then receive a follow up phone call to discuss what kind of a charter you are interested in.  If it's kingfish, bonita, mackerel and shark you want, spring or fall is the time. Big trout...November through June, Redfish - Year round but best March through early November, Snook - Late April through mid July, Grouper - Late October through early December.  Many other species are caught as well. The best part is that you have a full twelve months to decide what you want to fish for as gift certificates have a one year expiration date. Gift certificates mailed for Christmas gifts will all be dated December 25, 2012.

For those of you who fished with me this year, thank you for your business.  Have a safe and happy holiday season.
