Our charter offers one of the best chances to catch such specimens on an epic offshore adventure with one of the most elite outfits in the St. Pete-Clearwater area! Equipped with all the possible federal permits, credentials, and years of on the water experience, Captain Brian & 1st Mate are here to go above and beyond to do whatever it takes to ensure you have an incredible experience!

On this trip you will go further
out to visit some of the secret honey holes this 35' contender has marked into its GPS. Your Captain will not only help you limit out on seasonal Snapper and Grouper species, but limit you out on Monster Snapper and Grouper specimens! This means if you catch a smaller Lane Snapper or Red Grouper (or other species that is in season) Your Captain will encourage you to return that one to the water and wait for another big boy! After you've limited out on the bottom fish, your Captain will take you to troll some nearby offshore grass lines or reef structures to solicit a Tuna or Cobia bite as well. No expense is spared, or corner cut when you fish with Ron and his guides.

You'll be riding out aboard a beautifully maintained Contender 35ft Tournament boat is equipped with triple 300 horsepower Yamahas and a deep-v that get you to and from the fishing grounds quickly and safely. This vessel’s ride has a reputation in the fishing community as being one of the smoothest and driest on the water. These offshore trips benefit from the Contender’s ability to minimize the amount of time cruising and maximize the amount of time spent fishing.

You will depart from the beautiful Tierra Verde Marina Resort in St. Pete. Along side mega yachts and classy sportfishing vessels Ron and his captains will help load your gear aboard the boat and ensure you are comfortable and properly briefed for your day before you depart. Ron suggests that you arrive 30 mins prior to departure time for all trips aboard his boats to ensure your captain has enough time to get all your gear onboard and properly orient you on the day ahead! The vessel is docked at the Tierra Verde Resort Marina but if you are looking to get picked up from a nearby location, Captains are often more than happy to accommodate!

All fishing essentials are provided along with a cooler with ice and water. Bring your own lunch and beverages, and a small personal cooler is fine as well.

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 vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
