Fort De Soto Inshore Fishing Charters
If you’re looking for an unbelievable day on the water, then let YACHTFISH take you on the ultimate Fort De Soto Inshore Fishing Charter.
Your Fort De Soto fishing charter will begin close to the Fort De Soto shore, which is home to one of the best light tackle fishing destinations anywhere in the country. With over 1,000 miles of Florida shoreline to explore, our 30 years of experience has allowed us to pinpoint the exact locations for an inshore fishing trip that guarantees fish and fun every time!
Armed with a bait well full of live bait, your licensed and professional captain will guide you to secret spots where you’ll find some of the most amazing fishing in the world. Just a mile out into the Gulf of Mexico, or back in the mangroves of Tampa Bay, you’ll have a chance to get your hands on a variety of inshore fish species. Flats fishing in the shallow waters around Fort De Soto is always a popular option. Ask your captain about sight fishing the flats. Yes, it’s just as it sounds. See the fish, cast, hook the fish, reel in the fish and repeat. We guarantee you’ll catch fish, and we’ll do whatever it takes to find them!
With fresh salt air in your lungs and a light breeze on your face, you’ll enjoy the magical experience of gliding out on the waters surrounding Fort De Soto. You might even be greeted by manatees and porpoises. We have a variety of proven inshore fishing techniques that will leave you wishing the trip would never end; including trolling with live bait to provide a fast-paced adventure as you witness fish jumping above the surface desperate for a meal.
Fort De Soto Deep Sea Fishing Charters
As Deep Sea fishing experiences go, Fort De Soto is home to some of the best in the world. YACHTFISH will provide you with a Anna Maria Deep Sea Fishing Charter trip you will never forget!
With over 30 years of experience and hundreds of GPS waypoints, we know which areas to fish any time of year. Whether it’s slow trolling for kingfish, or bottom fishing for grouper, you will enjoy non stop action during the entire trip. You’ll truly feel detached from land, as cell phone signals fade and your focus shifts to having fun on your trip of a lifetime in the vast, open Gulf of Mexico.
There are few better feelings at sea than when the anchor is set, engines are turned off, the rods are ready and your captain announces that you’ve arrived at “the spot.” If you’re inexperienced with deep sea fishing, your captain will guide you throughout the entire day. If you’re more of an expert, you’ll be in the company of some of the finest, most skilled charter captains in the country.
Equipt with trusted and enticing baits, you’ll have the chance to hook a range of the Gulf’s top predators and potentially set your eyes upon dolphins, sea turtles and sharks during your return to shore! Keep your eyes peeled for Frigatebirds. They usually hover over schools of baitfish and can lead you to the promised land.
Fort De Soto Shark Fishing Charters
The Tampa Bay Area and specifically Fort De Soto, is home to an abundance of shark species, giving you an opportunity for a truly unique fishing experience! YACHTFISH happens to be smack dab in the middle of some of the best inshore, nearshore and deep sea shark fishing in Florida.
