Fishing Charter Information Tampa Bay – St. Pete Beach

What does the charter include? I provide all licenses, bait and tackle, safety gear and fish cleaning.

What kind of fishing will we do? The majority of the time we will fish the inshore waters and flats, but we will also fish some near shore wrecks and the beaches.

Where are you located? I’m mobile because I like to go where the fish are. We will talk about this a couple of days before the trip, but here are some of the places where I pick up.

What areas will we fish? On your Tampa bay Fishing Charter we will be fishing in and around Tampa Bay, St. Pete, Clearwater, the surrounding beaches, and Ft. Desoto.

What kind of fish will we target? We fish mostly for species like Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Trout, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Grouper, Snapper, Pompano, and even Sharks. Of course all of these species will depend on the season and when you book your Charter.

Do you clean our catch? Absolutely! I encourage catch and release fishing, but I have no problem with my customers taking some fish home for dinner. Obviously we have to follow our current rules and regulations.

How will we be fishing? On your Flats Fishing Charter we’ll use mostly live bait, but we can use artificial if you would like. In the winter we use shrimp and soft plastic jigs and the rest of the year we use scaled sardines, threadfin hearing and pinfish.

What are your rates? Please click here for our current rates and specials.

Do I need to bring anything? Bring whatever you want to eat and drink. I also recommend a hat, sunglasses, towel and sunscreen.

Can I drink alcohol on the fishing trip? Beer is OK with me, but no glass bottles please.

Should I bring my own cooler? If you want to bring a small one that is fine, but I have two on the boat one for fish and one for food and drinks.

Do you allow kids on the fishing charters? Of course! I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to go fishing.  I really enjoy putting kids on their biggest or even their first fish ever. Please visit my kid’s photo page.

Do you have a bathroom on the boat? Sorry, I don’t, but when we are inshore fishing in the St. Petersburg Tampa bay area we are never too far away from a place to dock up and use their facilities.
