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.

Captain Ron and his son were fantastic. They took my family out and had us on Snook, Reds, and trout. They showed patience while helping my young sons and wife whom never fished Florida waters before, and gave them all a trip to remember after they caught some of the biggest fish of their lives.  We saw dolphins and shark and couldn’t of asked for a better trip. I Highly recommend this charter to anyone looking for great memories.

We heard about this fishing charter from some friends of ours.  We booked a day out on the water with Captain Ronnie and Tanner.  We had an amazing day fishing.  Capt. Ronnie knew just where to take us and made our day on the water safe and enjoyable.  Tanner knew what I needed to catch the big fish before I knew he was so helpful all through the day.  We will certainly share with our friends about this charter and will be back soon to make more memories on the water.
