Somewhere South Fishing Charters

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!!!
