Head out to St. Petersburg, Florida and visit Westward Fishing Charters for a lovely fishing experience. Captain Weston Ulrich will take you inshore and nearshore so you can explore the fish-rich waters as well as the backcountry, flats, and reefs. Enjoy a beautiful day in nature and have lots of fun catching many different species!

You’ll start your trip on a 22’ Skeeter bay boat that can sit up to 4 anglers. It’s powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine and it uses modern GPS, fishfinding, and radio systems for navigation. The boat has got a wireless trolling motor for a more tactful approach and is equipped with a livewell and an ice-box.

There’s a wide variety of fish to pack your coolers with. You can catch Speckled Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Kingfish, Tarpon, as well as other interesting species. You’ll be using light tackle and will target your prey by bottom fishing and spinning. You can keep the fish you catch and have tasty meals at home, but you’re also free to release it back to the water if you wish so. You’re also welcome to bring along kids and surprise them with a wonderful experience out on the sea.

Captain Weston will supply you with all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. He’ll cover you for licenses as well and will clean and fillet your catch so you can take home some great table fare. Also, for an additional $100, you can have a professionally edited video of you and your day of catching fish.

Visit Westward Fishing Charters and create wonderful fishing memories!
