Nautical Souls Sportfishing LLC

Enjoy a beautiful day out on the Gulf of Mexico or Tampa Bay with Nautical Souls Sportfishing! This area is home to many exciting fish species. So get in on the bite!

The charter is owned and operated by Captain Shane. He’s born and raised in St. Petersburg, where he’s been fishing his whole life. As a father of two daughters, you will see that he excels at teaching anglers of all ages. With the help of Captain Shane, you will be able to successfully land some of the most sought-after species, such as Snook, Redfish, Trout, Kingfish, and one of the greatest sportfish – Tarpon!

You will be fishing from a fully restored 2020 24’ center console Morgan. It includes lots of space for landing your catch and is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine. There’s enough room for 6 anglers to fish in comfort.

The boat is rigged with all necessary equipment including GPS, Fishfinder, bluetooth radio (connect your playlist), quality fishing rods and reels, tackle, and live bait housed in a 70 gallon bait well (a big hit for the kiddos!). Fishing licenses are provided by the captain.

The captain will also provide your fishing equipment. Everything will be ready to use before you even come on board. You only need to pack some sunscreen, snacks, and drinks for the day. You can also keep the fish you catch and it will be cleaned and filleted after the trip.

Join Captain Shane with Nautical Soul Sportfishing and you’ll be sure to have an exhilarating day on the water landing fish!
