Spend a day on the water with Slobby Joe Charters and prepare for some of the most exciting inshore action you could ask for! Explore Tampa Bay’s endless flats and backwaters to target a who’s who of inshore favorites. With Captain “Slobby” Joe, you will get way more than just great fishing. He aims to give the full Tampa experience on the local waters, allowing charter guests to get truly immersed in this unique corner of America.

Captain Joe’s boat is a shallow-water explorer, designed to make her way deftly through the murky sand banks and backwaters, which Tampa Bay is best known for. Combine her shallow draft with her silent trolling motor, and you have yourself the ultimate weapon in the hunt for big Bull Reds and super-sized Snook. Head out into the bay with high-tech electronics that are able to pinpoint the most active spots in the area. Troll for Spanish Mackerel, or wrestle some giant jacks onto the boat for pure angling pleasure. 

"My first charter trip in Florida, but 5th overall, and the Captain was the BEST captain I have ever gone out with - by far.  Professional and knowledgeable and was 100% into making sure I had a good time and caught fish.  I caught 20 fish altogether, including jack, snook (15), flounder, and a catfish.  The snook were amazing fighters.  I had never caught one before, but they can certainly put up a fight and earned their way into my top 5 favorite fish to catch anywhere. The Captain was also a great person, very personable and friendly, and I left feeling like I had made a true friend.  I give Slobby Joe my highest recommendation to anyone looking for a charter in Tampa."
