Somewhere South Fishing Charters offers guided fishing trips in Tampa Bay and the surrounding waters. Fishing the Bay, St Petersburg, Clearwater, and the beaches in the vicinity, they have the flexibility to tailor every trip to your desires and level of experience.

You will be fishing aboard a spacious 23 ft Panga boat that is built with high sides for safety and security.

Captain Ronnie Hayes will make sure every trip gives you the best chance to catch the fish you want to target, whether that is Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, Snapper, Cobia, Kingfish, or Grouper (as long as they are in season). He will take you fishing inshore and/or nearshore, and is happy to leave in the early morning, mid afternoon, evening, or at night time.

Full details and locations will be discussed prior to the fishing trip.

Great evening. Ronnie had us right on the fish and it was about to be epic and then the wind messed things up. We were still able to catch fish and learned a lot. I enjoyed this trip more than with any guide I’ve had and my son just loved it. From now on Imy son and I are going fishing with Captain Ronnie.

Great time despite heavy wind and full moon!  Nevertheless, Captain put us on the targeted fish.  Couldn’t have asked for more.
