trip description for Clearwater Inshore Chase in Clearwater

This trip is for experienced anglers who want to master inshore fishing techniques and have a shot at the famous "inshore slam" (snook, redfish, trout) or to fill the cooler with fish to eat. Target Redfish, Snook, Trout, Grunts, Mackerel, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Grouper. Captain Jason spends all his free time on the water learning fish habits and movements so you can go straight to the fish on the day of your trip. If you have a goal in mind for the day, Captain Jason is more than happy to try and chase down your next trophy, but he is also privy to which species are bitting best, and can help set expectations for you at the dock by providing expert advice on what tactics and species will be best to target that day. You'll be fishing from Captain Jason's 22' Pathfinder powered by a 200HP Yamaha ProV. With the ability to glide through 12 inches of shallow water or head 9 miles offshore, the world is your oyster when you head out, as Captain Jason is able to target fish far off the beaten path. It comfortably fits 4 passengers plus the captain. Its most notable feature is the 10 foot custom scouting tower, which gives Captain Jason the advantage to scout fish from over 40 feet away! This fishing machine comes rigged with a 9" Garmin navigation system, 24V Minnkota iPilot trolling motor, and 2 live wells. And there is dry space to store your personal belongings and a cooler on board to keep your food and drinks cold for the day! All of Captain Jason's trips depart from Wet Lines Bait & Tackle on Seminole Street in Clearwater. You will meet him there where he'll have the boat in the water, loaded with all necessary bait, tackle, and fishing licenses for an epic day of fishing. He will have a cooler filled with ice to keep all of your food and drinks cold. If you plan on keeping your catch, the captain will fillet and bag it for you as well. Captain Jason recommends you bring any food and drink (especially water!) you would like to enjoy on your fishing adventure. Bring what you need to be comfortable outdoors for the length of your trip. Basic items to consider bringing based upon season and weather are sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, rain jacket, windbreaker, sweatshirt, etc. Captain Jason will also be in touch with you the day before your charter to make sure you are properly prepared for your saltwater adventure!

On our inshore fishing charters we will be fishing the bays of Tampa Bay and Sarasota Bay on the grass flats and around the mangroves & oyster bars. During our inshore adventures we primarily fish for snook, trout, and redfish. Other species that we encounter on our inshore fishing charters include flounder, pompano, mangrove snapper, sheepshead, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, gag grouper, ladyfish, and jack crevelle. We fish with light tackle and use live bait. A nice thing about fishing inshore is that we are always within 10-20 minutes of a restroom. Some of the best inshore fishing occurs in the spring and fall with these transition periods have fish very hungry and on the move. **Full day 8 hour trips are only available in the Morning.** Read More

Head out for an awesome fishing adventure around Holmes Beach, FL with Captain Joe! On this trip, you'll double up and chase classic inshore species such as Redfish, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and Spotted Trout, then head a little further out to go after gamefish like Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Jack Crevalle. The shallow grass flats in this are full of crabs, shrimp, and baitfish which in turn attract the big gamefish, so you'll have no shortage of opportunities for that personal best! You'll be fishing from the deck of Captain Joe's 23' Ranger bay boat, an ideal vessel for fishing these waters. Fishing the shallow flats requires patience and attention to detail. Fish are spooky in water that is only a couple of feet deep. The beauty of Captain Joe's bay boat is that it has a shallow enough draft to get you good shots up on the flats and in the back bays and inlets, while also having enough room and stability to haul it further out on a nice day! All of Captain Joe' trips include top-tier fishing gear, live bait, licenses, and fish cleaning at end of the trip. There is plenty of room in the cooler as well for your favorite snacks and drinks if you'd like to bring them along as well.

What is sheepshead in Clearwaterall about?

In Clearwater, Florida, anglers have the opportunity to target sheepshead, a prized species known for its delectable white flesh and challenging fight. Sheepshead are commonly found in the area's nearshore waters, particularly around structures such as docks, piers, and bridge pilings. These fish have a distinctive appearance, with vertical black stripes along their silver bodies and prominent teeth adapted for crushing shellfish and crustaceans.

One effective technique for sheepshead fishing in Clearwater is bottom fishing near structure. Sheepshead are often found congregating around pilings, rocks, and other submerged objects, where they feed on barnacles, crabs, and small mollusks. Anglers can target sheepshead by presenting small hooks baited with pieces of shrimp, fiddler crabs, or barnacles near these structures. Patience and finesse are crucial when sheepshead fishing, as these fish are known for their cautious feeding behavior and ability to steal bait without getting hooked.

Another popular method for sheepshead fishing in Clearwater is jigging with small, lightweight jigs or bucktail jigs. Anglers can cast these jigs near structure and jig them up and down to imitate the movements of prey. This technique can be particularly effective when targeting sheepshead around bridge pilings or rocky areas. Successful sheepshead fishing in Clearwater requires anglers to be observant and adapt their tactics to the ever-changing conditions of the coastal waters. Whether bottom fishing or jigging, targeting sheepshead offers anglers an exciting challenge and the chance to enjoy some of the Gulf's finest seafood.

What are the most popular months to fish for sheepshead in Clearwater?

In Clearwater, Florida, sheepshead seasons provide anglers with specific times to target these prized fish in the nearshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico. While sheepshead can be found in Clearwater's coastal waters year-round, their activity levels and availability may vary depending on the season. Typically, sheepshead seasons align with their spawning and feeding patterns, which can fluctuate throughout the year.

The sheepshead season in Clearwater often peaks during the cooler months, particularly from late fall through early spring. During this time, sheepshead migrate into shallower waters near structures such as docks, piers, and bridge pilings, where they gather to spawn and feed on crustaceans and mollusks. Anglers can take advantage of this seasonal movement to target sheepshead using a variety of techniques, including bottom fishing with bait or jigging near structure.

While sheepshead fishing may slow down during the warmer months, these fish can still be targeted in Clearwater's nearshore waters with the right tactics and equipment. During the summer months, sheepshead may move to deeper waters or seek shelter in shaded areas to avoid the heat. Anglers can continue to target sheepshead using similar techniques, adjusting their tactics to match the fish's behavior and feeding habits. Overall, while sheepshead seasons in Clearwater may vary depending on environmental factors, anglers can enjoy opportunities to target these prized fish throughout the year with proper planning and preparation.

What techniques are popular for catching sheepshead in Clearwater?

In Clearwater, Florida, anglers employ a variety of effective fishing techniques to target sheepshead in the nearshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico. One popular method for sheepshead fishing is bottom fishing near structure. Sheepshead are commonly found congregating around pilings, rocks, and other submerged objects, where they feed on barnacles, crabs, and small mollusks. Anglers can target sheepshead by presenting small hooks baited with pieces of shrimp, fiddler crabs, or barnacles near these structures. This technique requires patience and finesse, as sheepshead can be cautious feeders known for stealing bait without getting hooked.

Another effective technique for sheepshead fishing in Clearwater is jigging with small, lightweight jigs or bucktail jigs. Anglers cast these jigs near structure and jig them up and down to imitate the movements of prey. This method can be particularly effective when targeting sheepshead around bridge pilings or rocky areas where they may be feeding on small crustaceans. Successful jigging for sheepshead requires anglers to be observant and adaptable, adjusting their jigging rhythm and presentation to entice strikes from these wary fish.

Additionally, anglers can target sheepshead using live bait such as shrimp, fiddler crabs, or sand fleas presented on small hooks or jig heads. These baits can be fished near structure or along the bottom, allowing anglers to cover a variety of habitats where sheepshead are likely to be found. Whether bottom fishing, jigging, or using live bait, mastering these sheepshead fishing techniques in Clearwater promises an exciting and rewarding angling experience for anglers of all skill levels.

What other species are popular in Clearwater?

While targeting sheepshead in Clearwater, Florida can provide an enjoyable angling experience, the area's diverse marine environment offers anglers a plethora of other species to pursue. One popular target species is the snook, known for its aggressive strikes and powerful fights. Clearwater's coastal waters, including mangrove shorelines, estuaries, and shallow flats, provide prime habitats for snook. Anglers often target snook using a variety of techniques, including casting artificial lures or live bait near structure and tidal currents. Snook season in Clearwater typically runs from spring through fall, offering anglers plenty of opportunities to hook into these prized gamefish.

Another sought-after species in Clearwater is the spotted seatrout, prized for its tasty fillets and thrilling strikes. Spotted seatrout can be found in a variety of habitats, including grassy flats, sandy bottoms, and around oyster bars. Anglers often target spotted seatrout using live bait such as shrimp or mullet, as well as artificial lures like soft plastics or topwater plugs. With no closed season, anglers can target spotted seatrout year-round in Clearwater, providing consistent action and excitement on the water.

For anglers seeking pelagic species, Clearwater offers opportunities to target king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, and mahi-mahi in the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico. These fast and powerful fish patrol the offshore waters, particularly around reefs, wrecks, and bait schools. Trolling with artificial lures or live bait, as well as casting or jigging near surface activity, are effective techniques for enticing these pelagic species to strike. Whether targeting snook, spotted seatrout, or pelagic species, Clearwater's diverse fishery provides anglers with thrilling angling opportunities and the chance to land some of the Gulf's most exciting gamefish.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    Experience of a Lifetime! You know when you book an Air&BnB or an excursion and you have a slight apprehension due to the uncertainty of what the host guarantees? I will tell you this upfront, book with confidence. Let me explain… I’m going to do my best, but to capture the essence of what we experienced, in simple written word, is nearly an impossible task. Our guided fishing trip really started out like any other excursion. We met early morning, dockside at the “Bait House”. The host gave very clear and concise directions to our link up, what to expect and recommendations on what to bring along. The day before our trip, the staff reached out directly to ensure everyone was on the same page. We had (6) in our party. (3) adults and (3) kids. We packed our own lunches, drinks, adult beverages and snacks. This kept the guides fully engaged on fishing and not preoccupied preparing some spoiled kids’ lunch on the water. We also packed along warming layers and rain/wind gear. Our cadre of guides consisted of a captain/primary guide (Luke) and deckhand/assistant guide (Ben). Both were very cordial, professional and entertaining with their banter and dialogue. The boat was a 33’, fiberglass, Suzuki twin-engine, center console workhorse that appeared to be specifically designed for guided fishing. The live-well was fully packed with ice to preserve our harvested fish. (3) large bean bags were provided to lounge on while underway. The boat had been fitted with modern electronics for navigation, communication and fishing. Very nice, reliable, comfortable and safe vessel. Upon boarding we got a quick brief and were given ample storage space for all the gear we brought. This was key as everything must be stowed while underway. Our initial boat ride was 24 miles off the shore of Clearwater, FL. The ride was teeming with wildlife. As the sun came up, the city skyline disappeared into the horizon until you couldn’t see anything but ocean in every direction. It was magnificent. From start to finish, our guides were very organized on the boat. Gear, tackle, cabin, live bait, ect. all well organized and serviceable. As situations changed, they communicated clearly what they needed from us. Personnel management to balance the vessel and alleviate excessive listing, along with keeping the deck open to allow freedom of movement was well executed. The equipment provided was better than adequate. All of the gear was well maintained and prepped for use. From rigging and baiting to removing the fish and cleaning/prep, the guides handled every aspect of the equipment very well. My wife wanted to accomplish (2) things. She wanted to harvest fish for our family dinner that night, and catch the biggest fish. Both were achieved. We caught A LOT of fish. We began fishing for large Amber Jack, however the guide identified that the bite was slow so we shifted gears to catch our daily harvest. We slammed a bunch of amazing fish. Porgy, Hogfish, Red Snapper, Grunt and others. We also caught some fun interesting fish like: Lizard fish, Remora (suction cup fish) and blow fish. Some were even reused as bait for the huge Amber Jack we caught later in the day. After catching plenty of fish for dinner, we moved back to our original location for another run at the large Amber Jack (AJ); an artificial reef of an intentionally sunken ship. Fishing in about 80’ of water, we quickly hooked into our first AJ. After locating the targeted species, the guides quickly switched gears in an epic display of professionalism and mastery of their craft in order to draw out the largest AJs. The communication between the guides and their actions was impeccable. One man on the rod, the other in full support. As the guide asked for a certain type/color of bait fish, the other pulled it from the livewell and began to toss the same baitfish overboard. When that particular bait was unsuccessful, they moved onto another type. This was system repeated several times until they found the right bait. It was really cool to see. Very fast, deliberate and accurate fishing. Once we had the right bait, it was like the AJs were “switched on”. Shortly we were pulling monster AJs in the boat. Huge fish the size of both of a grown man’s legs. After an exciting run of pulling in several huge AJs, we were down to our last baitfish. What I’m about to tell you just can’t really capture how awesome this last cast truly was. Now, earlier in the day we had an AJ get bit by a shark. We got it in the boat and it had some teeth marks and a gushing blood. It was crazy cool. However, this last cast set into motion a series of events that we’ll certainly remember for the rest of our lives. The line was cast and immediately hooked up. My wife was fighting this monster AJ (Yes, the biggest fish of the day) for several minutes. As the AJ was retrieved and became closer to the boat (so close we could see it) two HUGE sharks swam right to it taking a gigantic bite out of the AJ. When I say “bite” I mean a literal shark-head-shaped-bite. A cartoonish bite. Like, imagine what you would see on a Saturday morning cartoon. The bite was so clean and the exact round shape of the jaws of a shark. It was remarkable. As it got up to the boat, guide Ben (in an epic display of reluctant courage mind you) reached down and pulled up this AJ. Even the pictures just don’t do this experience justice. My wife, grabbed this fish holding it right in the bitten area like a savage. She was so excited! We were all excited. As we unhooked the AJ, the guides tossed it back out and a full-on shark feeding frenzy erupted. Multiple sharks attacking this AJ in just the most amazingly violent display. This was straight up, no BS, some National Geographic sh!t. When the AJ was pulled in, nothing remained but a huge sardine head. The Gulf gave us a show we’ll never forget and it was all due to the expertise, fast thinking and relentless efforts of our guides. As if our experience wasn’t enough, our ride back was filled with dolphins, sea turtles and a host of other incredible wildlife. The guides cleaned and prepared all of our harvested fish. They even labeled them by name so we knew what types they were. Our family loves the outdoors, and we have a saying when we venture out, “Don’t expect anything”. The fishing trip that day took everyone by surprise as to how incredible it unfolded. If you are looking for an amazing experience on the water, book with confidence because we had the experience of a lifetime.

    Did a nice job trying to get us on fish. Hustled his rear off. Seemed a bit overwhelming having 4 on the boat who had never fished the flats before and several being relative novices for just 1 crew member. As a result about 1/3 the time 1-2 of our party weren’t fishing as we could have been. He was working hard though … much appreciated! Would highly recommend a 2nd crew member when there are inexperienced people it will be a tight fit though but think it would improve the experience. Tyson was nice, polite, knowledgeable and very patient thanks for the experience. Would highly recommend especially if you’ve done this type of fishing before. Thanks Tyson!

    So to put it simply Misty saved the day! We almost didn't make it because of a flat tire. Misty wouldn't think of us missing a day fishing. She picked us up, brought us to her boat with her Captain Alex. Who was incredible with my father. An older man who he treated with great respect and made sure that this was the fishing trip on a lifetime. He was knowledgeable funny and gracious. We actually got tired from catching so many fish. Did I mention their boat? There are 34" SeaVee gave me boat envy. I can't say enough about these two people who went above and beyond to make sure that we had a fantastic day. At the end of the day, Misty took us back to her car, which by now it was fixed. Because of this wonderful person we didn't miss a thing. Thank you.!

    We had Captain Brett for our day of fishing. What an amazing day we had. We caught multiple fish we could keep and multiple fish we couldn’t keep. We had the experience of seeing multiple species that we didn’t catch. We saw a bull shark, a Goliath Grouper, a loggerhead turtle, and a manatee. We hooked in to a giant. Watching Brett and my brother work together to get this fish in was spectacular. The team work that it took as well as the skill. He was also great for those of us that were less experienced. He was so pleasant and kind while helping me change my techniques so I caught fish verses continuously just feeding the fish. He did great with my teenage son. Brett is a great communicator. We will go with Brett again.
