Tampa Bay Fishing Charters

Welcome to Brian Sawyer’s Tampa Bay Fishing Guide Service, where fly and light tackle fishing is our specialty. We guide the inshore waters of Tampa Bay, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Homosassa and everywhere in between.  Our goal is to provide a fun safe trip with an experienced, enthusiastic guide. Our fishing charters are tailored around you. If you want to chase bruiser Snook, hunt for giant Tarpon on fly, improve your cast or just learn how to fish, we will do our best to cater the trip around your goal. When you are planning your trip, Sawyer will recommend what he thinks you’ll have the best success with and see if what you are looking to do is promising, taking into account all of the conditions.

We will fish Tampa Bay (early Tarpon season) all the way to Homosassa (monster fall Redfish) depending on where you want to fish and what the best fishing is at the time.
