About Captain Woody Gore

Capt. Woody puts another one back

Voted Top Tampa Bay Captain by ReelReports.com 2018!

Born and raised in Tampa, I developed a passion for fishing as a child and years later, I’m still expanding my fishing knowledge and skill levels. With worldwide fishing experience, I do everything possible to create an unforgettable and world-class fishing adventure.

As an experienced professional, I’m always willing to teach guest how to improve their angling skills. Whether educating children or beginners my approach is always easygoing and courteous. Over the years, thousands of local and vacationing anglers agree my fishing charters are satisfying, educational and always memorable.

A military veteran from the 60’s, college graduate and business executive in the construction equipment industry for over twenty-five years I learned early how to market and manage a successful business. When asked what one thing contributes most to his business success, I respond, it is very simple, “Customer Service”.

Several years ago, I began writing and added that to my list of enjoyable activities. I now contribute monthly fishing reports and articles for various magazines, newspapers, and periodicals.

I’m a member of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association (FOWA) and Southeastern Outdoor Press Association (SEOPA), I’m was a member of Outdoor Writers Association of America for many years (OWAA), National Association of Charter Boat Operators (NACO), and Chairman Hillsborough County Marine Law Enforcement Advisory Committee.
