Captain Steven is the REAL DEAL. Hard working guide not like others that just sit in the one spot and make excuses why we are not catching fish! Excellent with kids and just a great person to be around. He loves what he does, and you can always tell that with a guide! We will be using Capt. Steven for our fishing tournament again next year!

Our experience with Florida Raised Fishing Adventures and Captain Steven was nothing short of amazing! Captain Steven's expertise and knowledge of the local waters made our fishing trip a huge success. From the moment we set sail to the final catch, the entire journey was filled with excitement and joy. We reeled in some impressive snook and redfish, and Captain Steven's friendly demeanor and patience made the day even more enjoyable. If you're looking for a top-notch fishing adventure in Tampa Bay, look no further than Florida Raised Fishing Adventures!

Called last minute on a whim looking to fish the next day, I was lucky enough he had an opening. After talking to capt Steven on the phone I knew I had called the right guide. We decided to go snook fishing and pulled into the first spot and caught one almost every cast (18-25”) after catching around 50 of them I asked if he thought we could go find a few big ones. He said “let’s give it a shot” we took a 15-20 min boat ride to some of his juice and lo and behold 5th cast we were on a giant!!! Needless to say I will be booking again next time I’m in town..

I went out Shark fishing with Captain Steven and we got on several nice sharks! It was a bucket list goal of mine and he made it come true. He showed me how to safely hold/handle a shark with confidence. I definitely recommend seeing Steven to get you on sharks and will 100% be booking with him again!

If you want to fish the Southeast side of Tampa Bay, Capt. Steven Swindal is the perfect choice. My two friends and I have been fishing for many years and had one of the best fishing trips ever. We were catching fish 10 minutes from leaving the dock. When the bite slowed at one spot, we were quick to move on. We caught lots of snook and after every fish we landed Capt. Steven would check our line for fraying and change hooks as needed. We will be booking with him again.

Had a Great Time on the water with Steve. 10 minutes into the trip caught a 37” Snook. GET SOME!! Then we proceeded to catch many species of fish all throughout the Tampa Bay waterways. Steve is knowledgeable and super chill. He won’t stay if the fish won’t play. Took us to at least 8 spots where the fish were jumping. Definitely recommend if you like to catch fish! We caught snook, big jacks, catfish, speckled trout, redfish and a lady fish.

Lost count of the snook we caught. This guy knows his stuff. We told him what we wanted to catch and he made it happen. Highly recommend!

Awesome day on the water with Captain Steve Swindall. Being raised in Florida he is very familiar with the fish and the area that they can be caught. If you want a good day on the water and catch a lot of fish get with Florida raised fishing adventures.
