Tampa Fishing Charters With Captain Brandon Henley

Welcome to Tampa fishing charters with Capt. Brandon Henley. I provide light tackle and fly fishing charters on the waters of Tampa Bay. The shallow water flats and beautiful beaches of Tampa Bay are home to some of the most sought after gamefish in the world. I specialize in flats fishing for tarpon, snook, redfish, trout and permit. My favorite methods of targeting inshore fish is with light tackle (spinning rods) or fly fishing. Sight fishing awakens the senses to a unique view of Tampa Bay. As we quietly move along the flats you will see dolphins, turtles, manatees, and most importantly tailing redfish, strings of tarpon, and back country snook. Come experience the beauty and excitement of Tampa fishing charters. I offer a true flats fishing experience like no other in the Tampa Bay area. I use the finest light tackle and fly fishing  gear on all my fishing charters. I also employ years of knowledge and teaching to ensure your success on your Tampa Bay fishing charter. If you want to keep the rods bent all day, or to land that trophy tarpon or snook of a lifetime I can make it happen. My goal is not only for you to catch fish, but to walk away a better angler. Book today to experience a fishing charter of a lifetime! I offer fishing charters in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Bradenton.  See what we’ve been catching!

The Tampa Fishing Charters Difference

There are several key things that set us apart from other Tampa Fishing charters. First and foremost is my commitment to staying on top of the hottest fishing in Tampa Bay. The sad truth is a lot of other captains leave from the same dock, and fish the same spots day after day. On their days off the last place you will find them is looking for new spots or trying different approaches. I still love to fish and have an immense passion to keep learning more about the fishery. This coupled with the fact I trailer my boat all over the Tampa Bay area puts me in the position to always provide the best fishing possible. Routines are for office jobs, not fishing guides.

Attention to detail is another point of pride. When you choose us for Tampa fishing charters you will never step foot on a dirty boat. I’m sure you work hard for your money and you deserve a clean, comfortable environment for your trip. We utilize safe, new, top of the line boats for all of our fishing charters. Our reputation rest on not only our abilities as fishing guides but the equipment we use on the water. From the very start expect professionalism in every way when you fish with us.

A true love for teaching sets us apart from the pack. This isn’t a job, it’s a passion. I get incredible satisfaction helping others become better anglers. The better fisherman you become the more fun it is. Fun is what it’s all about. I also like to share my knowledge of aquatic life and the Tampa Bay ecosystem. The more you understand about the water, tides, bait and fish habits the more fish you will catch. I’ve spent a lifetime learning and the most valuable thing I can share with you is my love for flats fishing. Just be warned. You might just get addicted!

Tampa Fly Fishing Specialist


Tampa fly fishing is one of my specialties. Although I do guide light tackle fishing charters I personally prefer fly fishing to all other styles of fishing in Tampa Bay. Being on the platform scanning the flats in search of tarpon or permit is the place I feel most at home. Fly fishing Tampa is challenging and exciting. It never gets old. Something is always changing on the flats, and figuring out this complex puzzle is one of the most satisfying aspects of my job. Fly fishing requires both stealth and determination in order to be successful. As a Tampa fly fishing guide I bring copious amounts of both every time I go out. Learn more about Tampa fly fishing.
