Deep Color Fishing Trips

Stay inshore to whack redfish, trout, flounder, and sheepshead for some rod bending action, or hit it a little further offshore to troll the nearshore waters for giant Mackerel or bottom fish for a myriad of snapper and grouper species that call the Florida State waters home. For this St. Petersburg fishing trip, the world is truly your oyster, but the longer the trip you choose to run, the more options you will have in terms of techniques! Captain Hanks 22' Allcraft is the perfect fishing vessel for 4 guests fishing inshore and can make it out to the deeper water when the swells are less than 2ft. Even if the waves do not permit a nearshore voyage, there is still so much to explore along the surf and into the backcountry rivers around St. Pete, and a myriad of different species to hook into as well! Captain Hank will provide everything you need for your Inshore/Nearshore adventure so all you need to bring are your favorite snacks and drinks, and your sun protection, and get ready to rip some lips!

Me and my girlfriend had an amazing trip with captain Hank and his son. They were both very professional and awesome people! I recommend booking him 100 out of 100 times. I know we will definitely be back!

Had a great morning with captain Hank. Got us on the fish immediately. Stayed close to shore due to wind but still gave us a memorable 1/2 day. Would recommend. He was great to my three boys as well.

We had a great time. Fishing in the windy weather we had for the novice would have been difficult, but Hank took us out to a great spot we landed more than enough fish. Great captain and great company. Great memories with my son. Absolutely recommend!!!

Captain Hank was awesome! Called the day before to make a plan on what to fish for. Result was sharks, which my 9 year old son was out of his mind excited for. On the half day trip, we caught 5 sharks and probably 50 bait fish…an unforgettable experience!!

1st time fishing here just 2nd overall….Captain Hank was very thorough and experienced! Showed us exactly what we needed to know and answered any of our questions. Several good bites besides the fish above. Great time! Would definitely go out with Captain Hank again!

Was nothing short of amazing! Got us on fish fast and was fast getting the hooks back in the water. Our first time ever fishing in the ocean and couldn’t be happier with our trip! He was super nice to my daughter when she started puking over the side of the boat. We cut the trip short due to baby girl getting sea sick and he offered to adjust the price. Thank you for helping us make memories with Lou that will last a life time. If you are looking for a real down to earth captain who isnt just about the money this charter is where it’s at!

My sons and I had a great time with Hank and Javier. We originally booked a 3/4 day trip, but we had to cut it short due to big seas created by the incoming storm. Hank took us out to the reef where we caught Grunts, Snapper, Grouper, and even a Frog Fish in a short amount of time. As the seas got bigger the fishing got slower so rather than keeping us on the water for a couple more hours Hank suggested we call it early and only charged us for the half day trip. We were really hoping to catch some bigger fish, but I guess that is why they call It fishing and not catching. All in all a great time with Hank and his son.

Took my 10 yr old son on our first saltwater fishing trip, we had a blast. We caught a pile of different kinds of fish, including a shark right at the end which made my son’s whole vacation!! What I liked is Captain Hank has alot of different spots to find a hit bite, if one spot gets slow he picks up and moves to one that’s good. Highly recommend Captain Hank and we will be going back out with him again!
