Big Bay Fishing Charters

100 Pinellas Bayway South
St Petersburg FL, United States

Come experience the excitement of Florida fishing with Big Bay Fishing Charters. Local captains Nathan Diaz and Patrick Tomlin have spent countless hours fishing in Tampa Bay and its surrounding waters and they are looking forward to sharing their knowledge and passion for these waters with you.

Big Bay Fishing Charters offers trips of a lifetime aboard one of the most versatile boats on Tampa Bay. Their new SeaVee 270z is the largest boat in its class and it is fitted with the most advanced technology and equipment the fishing industry has to offer. The boat offers its passengers plenty of room to fish, and it is very stable, allowing you to walk from bow to stern safely and easily. With a draft of just 15 inches, the boat can access skinny water with ease, and its high thrust trolling water lets it skim across the water in silence. There is plenty of space on board for you to bring everything you need: the boat features ample storage compartments, as well as room for up to 16 rods on the center console and space for fly rods of up to 9 ft in the rod locker.

What makes fishing in Tampa Bay so unforgettable is the diversity of species on offer: when you put your line in the water, you can never tell what you will find on the end. With Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Tarpon, and even Sharks being caught regularly on trips with Big Bay Fishing Charters, every trip can throw up a new challenge and excitement. If you’d rather fish nearshore for some more great eating species, you can try bottom fishing and trolling for fish such as Groupers, Snappers, and Mackerel.

All the conventional fishing gear you could need is included in the trip price, and there is no extra fee for live bait and lures. The Captain and mate will also look after the cleaning and bagging of any fish you would like to take home at the end of your trip.
