Tampa Bay Florida’s Favorite Guide!

As seen on your local Television and Radio Shows!


From fishing the pristine shallow flats of beautiful Tampa Bay to the deep blue waters of the WORLD FAMOUS Boca Grande pass Captain Art Paiva has fished for snook, tarpon, redfish, cobia, grouper, trout, sharks, and caught them all.

Captain Art is of Portuguese descent and fishing is in his veins, so come on and take advantage of his lifetime of knowledge and 30+ years experience of fishing Tampa Bay and see for yourself why he is so highly regarded by his repeat clientele.

A Florida visit would not be complete without a guided fishing charter with Captain Art Paiva!
