Best Saint Petersburg Fishing Charters

Table of Contents

YACHTFISH Fishing Charters in Saint Petersburg provides the BEST fishing charters Tampa Bay has to offer. Lately we have been experiencing some great fishing as spring conditions are finally settling in. We look forward to this time of year as the next few months bring some of the best fishing in Saint Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area. There are many different species to target in Tampa Bay in the Spring and Summer months  from Snook, Redfish and Trout to Kingfish, Cobia, Jacks, Sharks and Tarpon. We have been finding some schools of BIG Jack Crevalle in the back country providing anglers with some great fights. These fish are a lot of fun on light tackle making long drag screaming runs that will be a battle even for an experienced angler. Snook have been making their ways out of the back country and onto the flats the last few weeks and have started to feed very aggressively on live bait. The Redfish also have been showing themselves in Tampa Bay starting to school up in decent numbers. If you are looking to fill the cooler with meat, Sheepshead and Mangrove Snapper have been the targeted species. We have been catching good numbers of them over rock piles and edges of the shipping channel. They have provided guests with some great table fare for those looking to take something home on their fishing charter. Tarpon season is right around the corner so make sure you book well in advance to get the date and best tides for your Saint Petersburg Tarpon Fishing Charter. We will begin fishing for Tarpon the end of April and it will go through September with the prime time being around the full moon in June and July. Book the BEST Saint Petersburg Fishing Charter with YACHTFISH today and get in on some exiting action!
