Captain Chet Jennings was born and raised in Tampa Bay and fell in love with fishing at young age. He has guided some of the world’s top name celebrities and politicians (including Wade Boggs and Nolan Ryan)! Through his passion and hard work he has earned a living as a full-time guide for over 25 years.

Captain Chet promises to use his life long experience to put you on the fish here in the Tampa Bay area. He looks forward to meeting you all and taking you to his top local fishing spots.

There’s an excellent choice of prized gamefish you can catch including exciting inshore species like tarpon, snook, redfish, and trout. Alternatively, you can fish nearshore waters for cobia, snapper, grouper, kingfish, and more. You can also target sharks like blacktip and bonnethead! Let Captain Chet know what fish is on your bucket list, and he'll do his best to help you catch it. Kids are welcome!

You’ll be fishing from a 23 ft Ranger Bay boat that fish 4 anglers at a time. Powered by a 150HP Yamaha engine, the boat has modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio systems. It's equipped for fishing with a trolling motor and livewell, and there's an ice-box to store your fish and drinks. Captain Chet can clean, filet, and bag your catch to take home.

Rods, reels, tackle, bait, and your fishing licenses are included in the price. The only thing you should bring with you is your favorite snacks or food.
