We will not only teach you different fishing techniques and how we target different species, but also share our local knowledge about St. Petersburg and its amazing fishery.

Spring time in St. Petersburg is one of my favorite times to fish for Snook and Redfish in Tampa Bay. These fish can be found in large numbers making for some incredible fishing. They are in their transition mode from winter hibernation to their spring time locations and will eat about anything in their path. We primarily use live bait when targeting these fish with spinning outfits making it for a super fun fight on light tackle.

As the summer months are approaching very quickly YACHTFISH Fishing Charters will be gearing up for Tarpon Fishing in Saint Petersburg. If you are looking for the ultimate adrenaline rush then look no further. We will be targeting these monster Tarpon and Sharks beginning in April and going through early October. Tarpon can provide a catch of a lifetime! These fish range in size from 50-200 pounds and can take up to an hour to land.
