Deep Sea Fishing in Tampa/St. Petersburg

Try a Fishing Adventure on your Next Vacation!

Ever wanted to try deep sea fishing? Why not schedule a trip on your next visit to St. Petersburg/Clearwater? Fishing is a great family activity and with so many options available, it is very easy to arrange a trip.

Deep sea fishing is a fun, casual activity that requires no previous experience. In fact, many charters provide all the fishing equipment necessary for a great day at sea. All you have to do is gather the family and show up at the dock!

Fun Fishing Charters

Many charters are available. Depending on the size of your group and the length of time you want to fish, we can help you find the right one. For those adventurous deep sea anglers, overnight fishing excursions are available. For most families though, just a couple hours on the water can bring in a good catch.

Experienced captains and crew know where to find the good fishing spots and can help even the most inexperienced fisher-person enjoy the experience. These crews have been plying our waters for many years and know what fish are biting and where to find them. Captain Rafael Rios and his crew at Spanish Sardine will make it a fun experience and everyone can count on a great catch!

Individual Trips or Group Charters

For larger groups, reunions and family gatherings, some area companies will provide a group charter. This is a great chance to share the experience as one big group. For most though, joining up with other deep sea fishermen is a great experience.

What Kind of Fish Do We Catch?

This is a great question and to some extent, it depends on the time of year. This is why it is always good to have a crew that knows where the good spots are and how to find fish that are biting. Fish typically caught in the area include Grouper, Snapper, Snook, Trout, Amber Jack as well as other types.

What Do We Need to Bring?

Charter companies provide different sets of gear so it is a good idea to check ahead. Most companies provide all necessary fishing gear and tackle. You usually need to provide a few things for yourself though, including:
• Camera – so you can post those pics of you and your family with the day’s haul!
• Sunscreen – it is Florida after all,
• Sunglasses – don’t forget these! it can get bright out on the water,
• Good hat for each person

Check with your charter to find out if you need to bring a cooler or ice chest for your catch and what drinks are provided. It can get warm out there and drinking plenty of fluids is important for everyone!

Deep sea fishing is a great family experience or is fun for just a few people. Don’t miss out on a fishing trip on your next visit.
