Fishing out of John’s Pass, Madeira Beach, Deep Color Fishing specializes in fishing the reefs and wrecks in state waters. They are experts at giving anglers the chance to fish some very productive spots at a very reasonable price.

Their vessel is a 22 ft Allcraft center console that is fitted with a large T Top for shade on those hot summer days. Powered by a 150 HP Evinrude E-tec engine, the boat reaches the best fishing spots with plenty of time to spare for you to focus on hooking a prize catch.

The crew at Deep Color Fishing has many years’ experience fishing the local waters, and is well-equipped to use the right baits at the right times to catch the fish that live in and seasonally visit the waters off Florida’s West Coast. With possible target species including Snappers, Groupers, Redfish, Snook, Sheepshead, Cobia, Mackerel, and many more, they will put you and your friends or family on the fish while making sure you have a great time doing it.

Taking up to four guests out to nine miles offshore for up to eight hours, Deep Color Fishing are sure to provide you with an enjoyable and productive reef and wreck fishing adventure. They provide all the gear and bait you need, and will even clean and bag your fish for you at the end of the day. All you need to bring is your snacks and drinks, sunblock, and picture-taking devices.
