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 spacious 23 ft Panga boat that is built with high sides for safety and security. With room for up to four guests, the boat is fitted with all the essentials for fantastic inshore fishing adventures, including a GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, and a reliable Yamaha motor. With a trolling motor and anchoring system on board to keep you on the fish and an ice box for cool drinks throughout the day, this boat will prove a comfortable base, regardless of the duration of your fishing trip.

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!!!

This was such a great trip. Capt. Ron and his son, Tanner, went out of their way to ensure our trip was a success.  They are truly professionals.  Book a trip with them and you won’t be sorry.
