Pocket Change Inshore Fishing

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!

Captain Anthony was top notch! We booked the Summertime Shark Fishing trip and although we had to cut it short due to weather, he ensured that the other two hours would be a acommodated the following day. He helped my 13 year career or daughter took a very unexpected and large kingfish, as well as assist with having it mounted! Class act, we will be back!

We caught snook, one of which was over 30 inches!  Knock that off the bucket list!  Had a great time!
