After a very busy few weeks of charters, my wife, Mrs. Lowe Tide, of course asked to go fishing on her day off. The morning was amazing with beautiful blue skies, crisp air and glassy water. After a few casts she caught some trout and then landed this solid 24″. Can’t beat the good memories spent fishing on the water with your wife.#lowetidefishingcharters #fishing #dogfishtackle #captjameslowe

Had an awesome day with Jack, who’s daughter in law bought him a 6 hour artificial instructional fishing trip. After showing him many knots and different style lures, he was on fire with a Mirrorlure Lil Jon catching multiple redfish and trout.#johnspass #mirrorlure #captjameslowe #trout #redfish #fishingtampabay  #dogfishtackle

Gin clear water, mullet run, cold fronts and finicky fish, that about sums up Winter time fishing. Frustratingly fun fishing the last few days with clients, but when the bite turns it is game on. Big redfish, descent trout and everything in between.#lowetidecharters #wintertime #stpetebeach #dogfishtackle #captjameslowe  #redfish

After a week off for a little vacation with the wife it was back to work today. The weather moved out and the fish where chewing. Eric and his Dad from Indianapolis fished through the rain on a 20 plus #redfish morning. Even one fish that looked like it had ran the gauntlet with a couple dolphin. With fish up to 33″ and cold front moving through it was a awesome trip! The weather is cooling down but the fishing is heating up. Book you a charter today!#captjameslowe #lowetidefishingcharters #fishingtampabay #stpetebeach

Rain or shine these girls where going to catch some fish. The weather cooperated long enough to get Dave, Debbie, Ally and Sophie from Wisconsin on a awesome #redfish bite. With fish up to 33″ these girls put on a clinic this morning. Off the water just as the rain started coming in… #takeakidfishing #stpetebeach #johnspass #captjameslowe #lowetidefishingcharters #dogfishtackle #fishingflorida #fishingtampbay

So, Lowe Tide Charters had been asked by several people to do the Old Salts Ladies tournament this weekend, and one in particular I just could not say no to. Absolutely the best client I have had on my boat and best charter I have had, my Mom, Donna Lowe. She absolutely hammered the redfish all morning with fish ranging from top of the slot to over slot. She managed a top 5 finish in her first ever tournament with 32.75″ slob of a fish. The weather was beautiful, the fishing was awesome and the smiles on the boat where priceless! Thank you Mom!

Its been a little slow around here but the fishing is still insane for August. Josh, Larry and John got to put the hammer down on a awesome #redfish and #snook bite this morning. Big fish all around for this crew. The bite is just going to get better as we head into the end of the year!#captjameslowe #lowetidefishingcharters #dogfishtackle #johnspass

Today another sick redfish bite with repeat client Katie and Michael. Had to avoid a couple storms cruising down the beach’s but it did not seem to affect the bite. It was double ups all morning with fish up to 31″. Thank you Katie! Might have to take a little break next week from the redfish…..#takeakidfishing #stpetebeach #treasureisland #johnspass #lowetidefishingcharters #redfish

Thursday had the opportunity to take out two friends from Ocala. They where dropped off at the ramp about 8 and told to have a good time. Dillon and Tyler slayed the redfish all morning, with fish averaging at the top of the slot. Since they where staying at the Tradewinds, we did a quick ride down the beach to see it from the water side and then back to the ramp by noon. Awesome trip with these guys before they head back to school! #takeakidfishing #stpetebeach #lowetidecharters #captjameslowe

All they wanted to do was catch some fish…..Had Brandy, Lisette and NIck out today on an insane redfish bite. With fish up to 29″ and double/triple hook ups for the first 2hrs of the trip. Then it was off to do a little site seeing around #tampabay to collect some sand dollars on the bars and visit Egmont Key. Congratulations to Brandy on her scholarship as she heads off to college! #stpetebeach #gulfportmarina #fishingtampabay #captjameslowe #lowetidefishingcharters #captainslife #dogfishtackle

Last two days have been tough with lots of spooky fish and lots of summer heat…. The redfish bite slowed down a bit but have managed to get a couple nice fish, trout and a surprise #permit on the flats while drifting deep potholes. Once that sun gets up my clients are just looking for the closest air conditioner, it is HOT..#takeakidfishing #summerheat #stpetebeach #charterfishing #captjameslowe

Beth was in town from DC and had a quick window today. She said she wanted to catch some fish. Not bad for a 2 hr trip. Had fish on from 24-35″ for a solid hour and then she said lets go sight seeing.

Rain or shine these guys where going fishing and catching some fish was the mission for the morning! Had Sean, Ryan, Jay Jay and Liam out on this soggy morning and the rain held out long enough to put them on a great bite with redfish, snook and a couple little sharks. Pictures say it all on this quick trip! Putting kids on some nice fish is a awesome feeling!#redfish #snook #trout #lowetide #lowetidefishingcharters #captainjameslowe #takeakidfishing #stpetebeach #johnspass

Started the day looking for the pot of copper at the end of the rainbow and found them. Got Lou and Tom out and the #redfish bite was on fire with some great fish. The #tarpon that Tom was looking for did not want to cooperate but still lots of fish out there and ended the day with a bath for the boat on the ride home! #captjameslowe #lowetidefishingcharters #dogfishtackle #stpetebeach #gulfportmarina

Still got some open days for April and a few spots to fly the silver king!

Ask for redfish catch some redfish! Got Angie and Scott out on today’s charter and got into some chunky fish. Tried to find the big black drum but the fog just would not lift out. Front heading in the next couple days but looks great going into the weekend. Signs of spring are all over the place, not much longer and the Tarpon will be here. #redfish #dogfishtackle #stpetebeach #fishing #fishingflorida #treasureisland #captjameslowe #lowetidefishingcharters #fishingtampabay

Got to put some smiles on with Mike and Jim today jumping around trying to find some movement on the tide. Managed to put them on a couple redfish and some of these little guys……… Light tackle fishing at its best! #blackdrum #redfish #dogfishtackle #stcroixrods #shimano #stpetebeach #tampabay #fishing #fishingflorida #captjameslowe #lowetidefishingcharters #saltwater #fishingvacation

What a difference a day makes. Got Beverly and Susan out on an awesome redfish bite and it was all smiles. The weather was a bit on the cool side first thing but once the sun warmed things up a bit and the tide moved in, it was game on. Beautiful fish from 26-33″. Sure could of used a couple of these yesterday. The weather is looking awesome this week, get off the computer and get on the water.

Getting out in between these fronts is getting addictive. Got Kenny, Jerry and Gary out today on a hot redfish bite after a disappointing start to the week. With the water a little less then desirable we shot across the bay to mess with a couple trout, small redfish and sheephead. Once the tide came up it was game on with some awesome redfish from 27-32″. Another beautiful day on the water!#dogfishtackle #thefishgrip #lowetidefishingcharters #captjameslowe #shimano #stcroixrods #stpetebeach #johnspass #treasureisland #tampabay #fortdesotopark #redfish #trout #sheephead #fishingflorida #fishingcharters

After days of rain, finally a break in the weather. Got Nick from New Jersey and Dave out in the early morning fog. Negative low tide first thing with a nice incoming tide inside Ft. Desoto, we got into a nice trout bite and some beautiful redfish. Once the fog broke it turned out to be a fabulous day! The weather looks like it is going to stick around for a week. Stop fishing the web and go catch some fish!#Dogfishtackle #TheFishGrip #lowetidefishingcharters #captjameslowe #shimano #stpetebeach #fishing #tampabay #redfish #trout #fishingflorida
