Fishing out of John’s Pass (Madeira Beach/St Petersburg), Deep Color Fishing specializes in fishing the reefs and wrecks in state waters. Captain Hank Valencia is an expert at giving anglers the chance to fish some productive spots at a reasonable price.

You’ll head out on these prolific waters on a 22’ Allcraft center console boat fitted with a large T Top for shade on those hot summer days. Powered by a 175 HP Suzuki Outboard, the boat reaches the best fishing spots with plenty of time to spare for you to focus on hooking a prize catch. The wireless trolling motor will help you approach some of those fearful specimens.

The crew at Deep Color Fishing has many years of experience fishing the local waters and is well-equipped to use the right bait at the right times to catch the fish that lives in and seasonally visit the waters off Florida’s West Coast.

With possible target species including Snapper, Grouper, Redfish, Snook, Sheepshead, Cobia, Mackerel, Trout, and Shark, 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 4 guests out to 9 miles offshore, the crew is 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 are your snacks and drinks, sunblock, and a camera.

Join Deep Color Fishing and let the crew show you a great time fishing the productive waters of Florida!
