Masi Boys Fishing Charters

Enjoy awesome inshore fishing with Masi Boys Fishing Charters. Captain Joe Masi is a third-generation fisherman with plenty of local fishing knowledge. He offers custom trips out of St. Petersburg, Florida and loves to show his clients the beautiful area he’s been fishing for over 30 years as well as to have great conversations while catching trophy fish. Mark your bucket list and come fishing with Captain Joe! For more information check out his website, reviews on the internet, or the magazine for which he writes tips and reports monthly.

The captain prides himself on making sure you’re safe and having fun. His vessel is a spacious and comfortable restored 24’ Proline flatback center console made in 1974 It fits up to 4 guests, runs on a 200 HP Suzuki four stroke engine, and uses all the modern navigation electronics. It features a wireless trolling motor, 2 coolers for fish and drinks, and a huge livewell.

The boat can get into less than a foot of water to chase that Red and Snook, as well as head out a couple of miles off the beach for Tarpon, Kingfish, and shallow water reefs. Hop aboard this old-school of a vessel and go get some fish!

You’ll be trolling and spinning for many different prized species on your trip. Apart from those already mentioned, there’s also Mangrove Snapper, Tripletail, Hammerhead Shark, and many more. You may keep fish that is in size and season or you may toss it back to the water. It’s up to you. The only things you’ll need for the trip are snacks and drinks.

Most of Captain Joe’s clients are repeats and that explains itself. Though he works hard to get you the fish, sometimes it just doesn’t bite and that’s why they call it fishing. But rest assured that you’ll have a great time on the water as well as some laughs, and that’s what it’s all about. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call Captain Joe.

Book today and have a memorable fishing trip in Florida!

The most common are Hammerhead, Bull, and Blacktip Shark but there are a couple of others as well. You will be using dead bait soaked on heavy-duty rods and reels to get these giants to the boat!

    This trip is for a client with Tarpon fever. It offers plenty of time to find some fish and usually gives you 3 tidal periods that the fish loves to chew on. That's why you'll be out on the beaches in shallow waters sight-casting to these Silver Kings.

The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Captain Joe's been fishing since around 2 years old and hasn't looked back. He comes from a family of fishermen and was taught a lot at a young age. He has two younger brothers and they love to fish together when they have time. Captain Joe's done a lot of fishing and still enjoys it. Now that he's gotten a little older, he enjoys seeing others catch fish and teaching them, and seeing them get the passion he has is more rewarding than you can imagine.
