Customer Reviews

Great Captain!

I have had the opportunity to fish with Captain Randall on quite a few occasions over the past 10 years. Hands down the most enjoyable times on the water is with captain Randall.

His experience and ability to not only find the fish but make the entire experience one that is enjoyable and memorable.

Craig A.

Best Fishing Charter!

My son and I went fishing with Captain Randall Shaw with FL Fishing Co this past November out of Anna Maria Island and hands down the best fishing charter we have ever been on!

We caught so many jacks and Bonita. While we were fishing we saw so many sharks out in the water. So Captain Randall topped off the trip with a huge bull shark!

Krissy C.

Great Fishing with Cpt. Randall!

I have been fishing with Randall Shaw for over 7 years and if it got any better I couldn’t stand it.

Randall is a pleasure to fish with and is committed to not only putting his clients on the fish of their choice, but showing them a good time full of fun while doing it.

Common Florida Fishing Questions

Is Tampa Florida a Good Place to Fish?

Tampa, Florida, is a fisherman’s dream! The city is practically surrounded by water, offering a ton of hot spots for both inshore and offshore fishing.

You’ve got the Gulf of Mexico on one side, Tampa Bay in the middle, and countless rivers and flats all around. So yeah, if you’re into fishing, Tampa’s got you covered.

What’s fish are biting right now, in Tampa?

Tampa’s waters are pretty generous with their variety. Depending on the season, you could hook into snook, redfish, trout, and even the mighty tarpon.

Since the fish menu changes with the seasons, it’s always a good idea to check a local fishing report before you head out. But generally, you can expect something to always be biting.

When’s the best time to fish in Tampa?

Well, it’s kind of all-year-round, but if you’re aiming for the best of the best, late spring to early summer is prime time. That’s when you’ll find tarpon season in full swing, and trust me, catching a “Silver King” is an experience you won’t forget.

But honestly, every season has its stars—winter for sheepshead and trout, spring and fall for snook and redfish.
