La Costa Charters specialize in big game and bottom fishing for a variety of species inhabiting the offshore waters of Florida. You’ll be fishing on a 32’ vessel, equipped with a range of navigational gear and fish finding electronics, such as GPS, radio and FishFinder. The boat is air conditioned and outfitted with a bathroom on board, and can accommodate up to 6 anglers per trip. A multimedia system for your enjoyment as well as a cooler with ice can all be found among the boat’s amenities.

Some of the species you’ll be targeting include Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, Hogfish, Kingfish and American Red Snapper, depending on the duration of your trip. Apart from fishing, the crew of La Costa Charters can also organize diving and spearfishing excursions, with the appropriate snorkeling and/or spearfishing equipment provided. This area offers extensive diving and spearfishing potential, with shallow reefs and wrecks located close by.

All the rods, reels and terminal tackle for your group will be provided by the La Costa Charters. Florida fishing licenses are mandatory for all anglers aboard La Costa, and are covered by the Captain. Following your trip, a complimentary cleaning and filleting of the day’s catch will be performed by the crew if you’d like to take some of the fish home. If not, you are more than welcome to practice Catch and Release.

About the Captain

Patrick Eckelbarger
South Pasadena, Florida, United States
Member since January 2015
I specialize in offshore bottom fishing and trolling in the abundant St. Petersburg and Madeira Beach fishing grounds. I always wanted to be a captain since I was a kid and was lucky enough to live my dream. I love targeting Red Grouper, Amberjack, Hogfish, Gag Grouper, Snappers, Kingfish, Tunas, as well as various pelagics inhabiting the offshore grounds. This is my passion and we will do everything to show you what La Costa Charters is all about and why you are in good hands with us. We guarantee it!

Captain Patrick and First Mate Michael did a great job.  We had a group of 5.  Which included 7 year old twins. Captain and crew are very knowledgable and taught everyone about the fish we caught.  Fun was had by all.
