Captain John O'Hanlon Fishing Expeditions

Tampa Bay, FL Fishing Guide

Nothing matters more on a fishing expedition than experience. The quality and success of your trip depend largely upon the knowledge and qualifications of your captain. In fact, there’s nothing more important when choosing a charter company than picking a captain who has the skills and know-how to ensure that you have a safe and fun experience.

Meet Captain John O’Hanlon

When it comes to fishing guides in Tampa Bay, no one can beat Capt. John O’Hanlon. With more than 30 years of experience on the water, Capt. John has the knowledge needed to serve as your offshore, inshore or flats fishing guide. He has piloted both large and small vessels for himself and other charter operators. Capt. John lives on the water and has extensive knowledge of how weather and water conditions affect fishing.

In addition to fishing on a near-daily basis, the captain has spent years scuba diving Florida’s waters. He developed a passion for the water when he began scuba diving at age 12 and has been in the water ever since. He understands how bottom structure affects fish populations and feeding patterns, making him the premiere inshore fishing guide in Tampa Bay.

The captain is a proud member of the Mercury PRO Team and has both won and placed in kingfish and grouper tournaments. Though Capt. John has retired from tournament fishing, he still embodies the enthusiasm of a serious angler.
