In demand!

Barracudaville Charters provides professional, full service fishing charters from Tampa Bay to Boca Grande, Florida. Join Captain Mark Maloney in St. Petersburg for your choice of inshore or offshore fishing. As a full time guide and third generation captain, he does his best to cater to every customer and their needs. Anglers of all ages are welcome, so bring your family aboard today!

You will fish aboard a 30’ Dorado originally built in 2003 and restored in 2014. Powered by a 300 HP Evinrude E-Tec engine, this craft boasts a maximum cruising speed of 38 knots. She comes equipped with advanced fishing technology, including GPS, fishfinder, and a live bait well.

While fishing with Capt. Mark you can explore the inshore waters of Tampa Bay or head offshore into the Gulf of Mexico. Fishing inshore takes you to shallow flats and mangrove islands, where you can fish for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, and Tarpon when the season is right. These calm waters are ideal for families and first time anglers who aren’t ready to commit to a full day at sea.

On the other hand, you can head offshore and catch bigger fish such as Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and more. Depending on the trip, Capt. Mark might take you anywhere between five and 20 miles from shore. For the biggest specimens, you can join him for a full day trip that takes you even farther.

Capt. Mark provides top of the line gear, featuring the craftsmanship of Shimano and Fin Nor, among other trusted names. Depending on your target species, he will help you try your hand at a variety of techniques such as jigging, popping, trolling, and bottom fishing.

Barracudaville Charters provides a fishing license and all the gear you need. You are welcome to keep your catch and Capt. Mark will clean and fillet it for you.

Come aboard today for an experience your family will remember for years to come!

Captain Mark Maloney is a third generation captain. He began his “charter” service career in 1972 at the age of eight. Back then, his equipment was a 10' aluminum Jon boat, the classic “Red Flyer Wagon” as the trailer, the famous Zebco 202, and a Maxwell House coffee can filled to the brim with worms. Today, he has more than 15 years of experience fishing in the St. Petersburg area. He says, "What better way to go to work than by boat?"
