Captain Tommy Koulouris:

USCG Licensed Captain

Fishing and exploring the Florida outdoors are more than just hobbies to Capt. Tommy, they have been his passions for as long as he can remember.  As a 3rd generation native of Tarpon Springs, few are more familiar with the surrounding waters of Pinellas and Pasco Counties. Beginning at a very early age, Capt. Tommy was mentored by what many consider some of the finest fishing guides in the state.  Now with over 15 years in the professional fishing and guiding industry, he has carried on their legacies while sharpening his own skill set to bring his clients extraordinary days on the water.  Capt. Tommy’s acumen for saltwater fishing has allowed him to win or place in several prestigious tournaments targeting inshore species, as well as billfish. Being extremely well traveled, he has fished many exotic locations in both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. However, nothing is dearer to his heart than the waters of southern Florida, where he excels at finding inshore gamefish including: Tarpon, snook, redfish, spotted seatrout, cobia, bonefish, and permit. Capt. Tommy also specializes in fishing for giant tarpon (including fly-fishing) in the shallows of Pinellas County as well as the legendary waters of Boca Grande, FL.
