Next time you’re in Clearwater, make sure to take a trip with JT Fishing Charters. Captain Jace Tyler is a Marine Corps veteran, fisherman, and true outdoorsman. At 33 years old, he is a Florida native who grew up fishing local waters all around Pasco and Pinellas counties. Capt. Jace has a passion for the water and loves sharing the knowledge and experience of local fisheries while enjoying a great day on the water.

You will be riding on a 22’ foot Skeeter bay boat, built in 2018. The boat is powered by a Yamaha outboard 150 HP engine, with room for up to 4 anglers on board at any time. All trip times can be adjusted to fit what best works for you!

Your guide is specializing in the catch and release of popular inshore fish in the Clearwater Beach area, such as Spotted Seatrout, Snook, Redfish, and Black Drum. Capt. Jace will make sure you have all the live bait and equipment needed for a great day of catching fish. If you’re an artificial angler, all baits and lures will be provided!

If you’re looking to keep fish, please make sure to discuss it with the captain beforehand to check which species can be kept. Capt. Jace can also split the trip between fishing and island hopping at the local intercoastal waterways. Nothing wrong with cooling off on a private island after fishing all morning! No fishing licenses required when fishing with Capt. Jace and he will have a cooler with cold water and snacks for every trip. Feel free to bring your own drinks and food onboard!

Beat the Florida heat by booking a night fishing trip! On this fishing experience Capt. Jace will take you to fish awesome dock lights, bridges, and deep mangrove lines for all popular inshore species of fish!
