Join Captain Mike of Down Range Charters on a memorable fishing adventure on the waters outside of St. Petersburg, Florida!...Read More
Captain Mike knows just where the fish bite around these parts, so listen closely to his advice - you could land yourself a trophy-sized fish!
You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Mike’s 24-foot Mako, a center console that is equipped with a 225 HP Johnson Evinrude engine. She also comes with a GPS, fishfinder, live bait well, and an ice box.
Captain Mike likes to run fun trips! He will bring the energy as well as his drone and go pro so he can shoot quality videos while you reel in the likes of Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, Trout, Sheepshead and maybe even catch an epic shot of a Silve King soaring out of the water!
Captain Mike likes to launch out of two different spots in the St. Pete area: Maximo (the address listed) is where he goes to wear out sheepshead, trout, and other inshore species for some rod bending action. His other launch is E.G. Simmons park which gives you closer access to the backcountry where you can chase Big Reds and Snook!
All the rods, reels, tackle, lures, licenses, and live bait come included with your trip, and Captain Mike will also clean and fillet your fish after your tirp at no extra charge! He will have bottled waters on board, but feel free to bring your own food and beverages. Don’t forget a hat, sunscreen, and a cooler with ice to take home your day’s catch.
No matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, Captain Mike will lead the way!
