Saltwater Addiction Fishing Charters

With Tampa Bay Charter Captain, Craig Weaver

Saltwater Addiction is a Tampa-based fishing charter boat company owned and operated by Captain Craig Weaver. We specialize in private fishing charters throughout Tampa Bay, the largest estuary system in all of Florida. The Tampa Bay estuary system, with its mangrove shorelines, artificial reefs, back country, luscious grass flats and creeks, gives you the opportunity to target a wide variety of sport fish.

Tampa Florida Area Fishing Charters

Our Tampa fishing charters offer some of the most exciting angling experiences in the world. To be successful year around fishing in Tampa Bay, Tampa fishing charter guides have to be versatile. Captain Craig Weaver of Saltwater Addictions is a skilled angler. He has had guided fishing charters where the morning was spent battling a 170 lb. tarpon, jumping 15-feet through the air and stripping the line of the reel, to stalking redfish and snook to spotting cobia from the tower of his 2010 24-ft Century to scalloping the untouched water of Homosassa FL.

    I booked a charter with Saltwater Addiction after being referred by friends. We have fished with many different charters in and around Tampa bay. This trip was a definitely a full-service charter... Craig is a five star captain and we look forward to being back on the boat soon!

    I would recommend this charter any day. The captain is very friendly and a great teacher. If you go out with him you will not only bring back a nice fish but you will learn how to catch that fish next time on your own. Craig thank you and looking forward to our next excursion. Sincerely your customer and friend Ricky Morris.

    Spent a day on the water during our Christmas break to Tampa. Capt. Craig Weaver knows the water and did a great job of putting us on fish during a slow fishing period. Caught my first snook and redfish with him on that trip. If you're interested in spending a good day on the water then you should definitely consider Saltwater Addiction Charters.

    If you are looking for a fishing captain in the St. Pete area look no further!!! I have taken many trips with Captain Craig and let me tell you, each time has been a wonderful experience. Captain Craig is knowledgeable and will put you on big fish...I have caught my person best with him! The kids had a blast, matter of fact they are still talking about our last trip!

  • Some friends and I went on a fishing charter with Captain Craig, had an amazing time, and caught a lot of fish. He was very professional, informative and helpful -- especially to those of us who had never been out on a fishing charter before. I will definitely call SALTWATER ADDICTION the next time I plan a charter!

    If you want to spend the day CATCHING rather than fishing then book a charter with Captain Craig Weaver!

    Every time that we want to hit the water we call Capt Craig with Saltwater Addiction Charters and he does not disappoint! Called last minute and he squeezed us in and got us on the fish quickly and all day long. Anyone looking for a great time in the Tampa Bay Area would be crazy not to give him a call.
