Somewhere South Fishing Charters

3600 Poplar Street Northeast
St. Petersburg FL, United States

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 24’ Pathfinder Tournament Series with a Yamaha 250 Outboard. Featuring a custom half tower with upper and lower controls, this boat was made for sight fishing. Step aboard and get ready to give yourself a challenge.

The boat is equipped with Garmin touch navigation and bottom recorders, which give it the edge when it comes to finding the fish. Its bow and stern custom live wells have plenty of space for bait, while its Fusion stereo will get you fishing to a soundrack powered by its state of the art Wet Sound Speakers. With a custom Jack plate, it can run super skinny, getting you fishing over the best honey holes that other boats can’t access.

On board, you will find three Yeti Coolers for ice, food and fish. The custom T-Top allows relief from a hot sunny day. As if that wasn’t enough, the boat is black in color, which looks stunning on the water.

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.

Hi. My name is Captain Ronnie Hayes. I was born and raised in St Petersburg FL. I have spent most of my life fishing the beautiful waters that surround this amazing place I call home. The fishing opportunities here are endless. My greatest passion as a fishing guide is taking kids fishing. The most important part of my job is making sure they leave with big smiles. So what do you say, book your trip today and let's go catch some fish!!!

i had a fantastic night of snook fishing with Somewhere South. first we took some casts in the mangroves and looked for tailing reds and snook. after the sun was fully down we cruised some docks sightcasting to snook in the lights. we caught many many good sized snook, and of course the big one got away, breaking the line on a dock piling. capt and mate were super professional. well stocked and laid out boat kept immaculately clean. cant recommend these guys enough. best way to spend a few hours at night in st pete. thansk again capt!

Fishing with Captain Ronnie today was a blast!!! My 7yr old son and 14yr old nephew got to experience some snook action in the morning and then we caught some beautiful trout in the afternoon. My son is still bragging about how he caught not one, not two, but three trout bigger than the one I caught. The old boy will just have to wait to one-up him next time. Thanks Captain Ronnie for getting these boys hooked up!
