We have lots to offer during therse heated months of summer. great fishing for all ages . we are family oreientated annd love taking kids fishing

With a name like JAWSTOO, Shark fishing is truly one of our specialties. Action remains strong near many of our sunken wrecks offshore. Goliath grouper dwell in the same underwater structures providing anglers with some gigantic sized fish, weighing up to 400 lbs

Our wreck fishing adventures are especially taylored to clients new to fishing. We also have barracuda and numerous other fish avail around these same wrecks as well.Teenagers and adults love catching big fish with teeth. ...


These two months can be lot of fun/ Its all about the weather. Fishing between cold fronts, when the winds and seas are calm, is key. Catch and release action has been great for Amberjacksa, goliath groupers, gag grouper, red snapper and many other reef fish.

There are options for gathering fillets available for clients to eat dinner. Hog snapper, gray snapper.(key West grunts) porgies , red grouper and a few others can be kept for the dinner table at this time.

There are plenty of them if you are a bit flexablewith scheduling.

Offshore we have great catch and release action with Amberjacks. They are large and n charge when they hit a bait offered. Not only are the big in size but will school up in masse over some of our privite wrecks. This allows anglers to have endle...

What's biting the hooks for fall 2020

As water temps cool,migrations of many fish move our way. Kingfish are the main topic . When they hit a bait at speeds of over 30mph, its quite a thrill. Bigger kingfish can often peel 400 yards of line off in one single run.

Bottom fishing is also another option for a great day on the water. Gag grouper have started their migration towards our coastline. Travel time to get to these areas are often with in 20 miles from shore. Even the red grouper populations have moved within 30 miles from our coast.

I have always referred to Water temps in the 70's as "MAGICAL". .....and there is good reason. Numerous species of game fish are migrating along our coast line during these fall months, a...

Fishing report for Captain Dave Mistretta January 2020 Published in the Tampa Bay Times Sports Section- weekly fishing report


Mild weather has been allowed many anglers to get out on the water. Calm seas have made all options easier for an offshore adventure. We fished within 20 miles and was rewarded with gag groupers, snappers, grunts and porgies. The gag grouper season is closed for recreational anglers until June, but still provide some great catch and release action. A quick picture before releasing them back to the wild, can still serve up some impressive bragging rights.

Commercial gag grouper season remains open. This confuses many clients, since they see the fresh grouper on the menu, but have to release a big gag grouper. It’s the way our fish regulations are set up. Commercial and recreational fi...


We've been experiencing numerous days with blustery winds related to cold fronts. Anglers can still get some good action in between the rough weather days. Timing your outing between the unruly weather is key. We normally inform clients ahead of time, During this month of December, they have a 50 /50 chance of getting out. Water temperatures have not plummeted to the low sixties yet, so we still have multiple migrations of fish in the area.

Kingfish and Spanish mackerel are still being caught by anglers trolling cleaner water conditions between fronts. Water depths of 30 to 60 feet of water seem to be the most productive depths to troll at this time. A few rogue kings are still being landed o...
