Treasure Island Fishing Overview

Treasure Island, located in Florida, offers a prime location for fishing enthusiasts with access to the abundant waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. The town's proximity to John's Pass inlet provides easy access to fishing right off the dock. A variety of species can be targeted, including King and Spanish Mackerel, Snook, Redfish, Cobia, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Mangrove and Red Snapper, different species of Grouper, Jack Crevalle, Hogfish, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Tuna.

Half-day trips are ideal for family outings, while full-day trips offer a more serious fishing experience. Specialized trips are also available for targeting the Silver King - Tarpon. The annual Suncoast Kingfish Classic tournament in spring and fall provides an opportunity for healthy competition.

Fishing charters are available from various marinas in the area, and a saltwater fishing license will be provided by the captain. It is important to note that there is a strict catch-and-release policy for Tarpon.

Treasure Island Inshore Fishing

For any angler, just looking at a map of Treasure Island will cause excitement. For inshore anglers, however, Treasure Island is a very special place. The biodiverse inshore waters are home to many bucket list species. In the spring and summer months Tarpon swing by on their southbound migration.

They are accompanied by ambushing Snook and Redfish moving into the warmer bay waters. As the waters cool down, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Grouper species can be expected. Fish the best Treasure Island fishing spots like Caladesi Island and Honeymoon Island or cruise the bays, backwaters, and bayous for mangrove monsters. Regardless of the time of year, your Treasure Island fishing charter will ensure that you stay on the bite!

Treasure Island Offshore Fishing

Just a short boat ride out of the bay will bring you to some highly productive nearshore waters. Deep dropping or trolling around structure will bring Hogfish, Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, and other formidable fighters to our Treasure Island charter boats.

Schools of baitfish hang out near the mouth of the bay in the summer, so that's a great place to start. There are also plenty of reefs & wrecks always providing a diverse catch to Treasure Island deep sea fishing charters. For the full-day and extended day offshore trips of 40+ miles out, Kingfish, Tuna, Mahi-Mahi, and billfish can be caught.

    Capt. Rick and Hope were the best we’ve had a chance to fish with! Great boat, everything you need is offered, good fishing, and a lot of fun. We will be fishing with them again soon and I highly recommend if you are traveling with the whole family, friends, or kids. They have it covered.

    We all had a great time during the fishing trip. We caught quite a few fish that we got to keep. The deck hand was on top of his game and took good care of us as we were catching fish. The Captain had a cooler of water, a bathroom on board and cleaned all of our fish for us. My daughter and I got a little sea sick but we all had a great time regardless.

    Very knowledgable about the area, great guy and lots of fun on water. You can’t go wrong with Captain Nick. Thank you again.

    What an awesome trip! Captain Brad is super knowledgeable and was a great help with not only the typical trivia questions but tips and tricks on techniques and your style of fishing. He was willing to work with me on getting a variety of fish but also taking the time to get a tarpon, which was well worth the wait. He was a great coach during the long battle and would've lost it if it weren't for him. The boat was great and would work well for a smaller group. Overall was a fantastic trip. Ill be sure to book Captain Brad again next time I'm in the area.

    We had a great fishing trip in Clearwater Florida. Our captains (Brett and Luke) were very nice and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Brett and Luke. They put us on some King Mackerel that fought like crazy. It was a lot of fun. Ask for Captain Brad.

    Bad weather plagued our trip. A big fog bank rolled in on us. Caught a few but it could have been better. I saw no other boats catching fish either. Chris knows his stuff and I'm booking a Tarpon trip with him next month.

    The trip I had with Captain Roy was amazing! Being from out of town he was very helpful because I'm used to fishing for pan fish and fishing in Florida is a little different then that. My buddy, his 6 year old son, and I all had a lot of laughs and caught some fish. Caught my biggest fish and got to see a dolphin swimming around our boat. I'll definitely be planning on another trip with Captain Roy.
