Welcome to fishing charters & lodge!

Are you excited to catch Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Seatrout, Grouper, Snapper, and other Tampa Bay fish made famous by thrilling displays on TV, YouTube, and in magazines? Are you a savvy angler or a family group with no time to waste on pricey boat rides and slow fishing? - Then you're in the right place. Captain Neill Holland and the guides were raised in St. Petersburg, on the shores of our local fishing grounds, ensuring that when you call, we'll know where the fish are biting. We'll show you great fishing on a state-of the-art private fishing boat, set against a beautiful backdrop of mangrove islands, white sand beaches, and seagrass flats - dolphins, manatees, and sea turtles, too!

Tampa Bay is one of the greatest places to fish in the world. Our Bay is the largest estuary in Florida, meaning that we enjoy a diversity of fish species and habitats - from Bull Redfish on lush grassflats, to Tarpon and Big "Linesider" Snook in the surf; to Snapper, Grouper, and Kingfish over nearshore wrecks and reefs. Thanks to updated environmental management plans and restoration efforts, area water quality is prime to support beach trips and swimming, and a wide variety of BIG gamefish.

The team serves anglers in Saint Petersburg (St. Pete), Tampa, Clearwater, Bradenton, and Sarasota. Our homebase is at The Big Catch dockside "cook your catch" restaurant, located in Downtown St. Pete. We're the preferred fishing charter of the Vinoy Hotel, St. Pete's best. We also operate a houseboat efficiency rental for visiting anglers to utilize if hotel accommodations are unavailable. We're excited to host you, so click on our site menu to see great media and information, and give us a call today for the latest fishing report or to book your trip. - Tight lines! Capt. Neill (727-200-7781) and the GFTB Guide Team
