Pocket Change Inshore Fishing

(46) Just booked!
35th Ave NE
St. Petersburg FL, United States

Welcome to Pocket Change Inshore Fishing Charters! Captain Anthony Corcella is a USCG licensed fishing guide with a lifetime of experience. You can join him for many adventures on the flats, backcountry, and nearshore waters of Tampa Bay, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg. He welcomes anglers of all skill levels, from novice to advanced!

Step aboard a 24’ Carolina Skiff, built in 2015 and powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots, this craft doesn’t waste any time taking you to the fishing grounds. Her sleek design allows you to fish in skinny water where most boats cannot go. On board you will find the latest fishing technology, including Simrad electronics, a wireless trolling motor, and a live bait well. This boat is also wheelchair accessible, with space on board for up to six passengers.

To take advantage of all the fishing possibilities and customer requests, Capt. Anthony trailers his boat and takes you to the best fishing available at the time of your charter. He specializes in light tackle fishing, using many different techniques both with artificial and live bait. He supplies Star Rods with Penn reels, including fly fishing equipment.

Whether fishing the fertile flats with a top water plug for Trout, live bait fishing a giant school of Redfish in Tampa Bay, or sight fishing for Tarpon along the beaches of St. Petersburg, this area offers a great variety of fishing opportunities and locations. These inshore waters are home to many large, hard fighting game fish! You can try fishing for a West Coast “Grand Slam” of Snook, Trout, and Redfish in one day. And when conditions are right, you can even catch the ultimate “Super Grand Slam” by adding a Tarpon!

Pocket Change Inshore Fishing Charters include everything you need, from a fishing license to quality tackle. Depending on the species, you can keep your catch and Capt. Anthony will clean and fillet it for you.

Just come aboard ready for great fishing!

Highly recommend Captain Anthony with Pocket Change! He put us right on the fish at the first location we stopped.. 4 keeper Redfish within an hour and a half and about 12-15 snook between the four of us in the 4 hour trip. Very impressed with the whole trip and Anthony helping give my boys a truely awesome experience! Will definitely be booking again when we come back to the area!
