Meet Guide Tim Stout

Meet The Veteran Fisherman Of Weeki Wachee, Florida, Captain Tim of Seize The Bay Fishing Charters and His 21' Shallow Sport Boat

Meet your expert guide, Captain Tim, who has been fishing professionally for over 40 years and cherishes every moment on the water. Growing up with a strong work ethic instilled by his father, Tim learned the value of hard work and giving his all in everything he does. His father taught him patience and the importance of timing, essential skills for a successful catch—lessons that have profoundly shaped him.

Captain Tim's passion for guiding is truly admirable. While he loves catching fish himself, he finds the greatest joy in helping others succeed. His guests often praise him for making them feel like family, being a great mentor to kids and novices, and working tirelessly to provide an exceptional fishing experience. He enjoys laughter and the challenges that come with each charter.

Captain Tim takes his guests out on his 21’ Kenner center console boat, powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, accommodating up to 6 anglers. The boat's tunnel hull allows it to navigate very shallow waters, perfect for fishing Homosassa, FL, while the modified v-hull ensures a comfortable and dry ride. It is well-maintained and equipped with quality navigational electronics, including GPS and a fish finder, to quickly locate the best Homosassa fishing spots. The boat also features a wireless trolling motor for smooth movement without spooking the fish and a live well to keep your catch fresh. Snorkeling equipment is available for those who wish to explore the underwater beauty.

Though Captain Tim loves to have fun, he is a highly knowledgeable fisherman. He always looks forward to discovering what the water has in store, believing that after leaving the dock, it's all about having a great time, catching that big fish, and making lifelong memories and friendships.

If you're looking for the best fishing charters in Homosassa, FL, or interested in scalloping Homosassa charters, Captain Tim is your go-to guide. Book your adventure today and experience the thrill of Homosassa fishing with a seasoned expert!
