Jewel Of The Bay Charters

Welcome to Florida’s West Coast, where Jewel Of The Bay Charters is ready to give you a fun-filled day of fishing the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay, and surrounding waters! Adventure awaits you whether you are a die-hard or a casual angler. You’ll be under the guidance of Captain Doug Deming who will share his fishing knowledge and enthusiasm with you.

You can explore all the various fishing locations on his Angler Offshore bay boat. The boat is 22’ and can accommodate groups of up to 6 guests. For your better fishing experience, the vessel is equipped with fish-finding / GPS equipment and a Suzuki 175 HP motor – and for a more stealthy approach, a Minn Kota trolling motor.

Their charters cover inshore, and nearshore locations such as reefs, wrecks, grass flats, and backcountry fisheries. There’s action all year round, but not all species are always available. Depending on the season you can catch Snapper, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Spotted Sea Trout, Snook, Red Fish, Flounder, Sheepshead, and Sharks. But, when fishing saltwater – you never know what may bite your hook.

The charter will cover your fishing license, and the necessary fishing gear and live bait will be waiting for you on board. You can just bring your refreshments, snacks, and sunscreen. The crew is enthusiastic about teaching children to catch fish, and they’ll happily clean and bag your catch.

So start planning your fishing adventure now! Book Captain Doug and Jewel of the Bay Charters and make some memories!

Born and raised in South Eastern Michigan, Captain Doug started fishing as soon as he could hold a fishing rod. Captain Doug earned his Coast Guard Captain's license while still fishing the Great Lakes in Michigan and Ontario, Canada. Now guiding on the Gulf of Mexico and the many beautiful bays that make up the Tampa Bay area for over 10 years, he likes nothing more than sharing the saltwater experience with his guests.
