Fishhawk Charters - Silverton

Cruise out of St Petersburg in style aboard Fishhawk Charters’ glamorous Silverton Convertible. Whether you want a rod bending offshore adventure targeting big game fish, or you just want to treat yourself to a few hours of fishing the Tampa Bay area aboard a really well-equipped craft, this boat will meet your desires.

Take a trip aboard this 48 ft Silverton Convertible, and you will be able to combine fishing with good quality equipment with relaxing. The boat’s large convertible flybridge gives excellent views of the surrounding area, and inside it features a full bathroom, a kitchen, and comfortable seating and sleeping areas. Powered by two Volvo engines, the boat can access the offshore waters fast and reliably, and it has a range of electronics to keep you in contact with the shore as well as helping you get to the best fishing spots.

Fishhawk Charters specializes in catching delicious fish species, such as Kingfish, Groupers, and Snappers, and they will make sure you get the chance to target the best bite of the day. They carry light and heavy tackle on board, and always make sure their fishing gear is in good working condition. And if you want a truly unforgettable fishing experience in the Gulf of Mexico, they offer overnight adventures that you will never forget, where target species include Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and even Marlin.

Any keeper fish will be cleaned and bagged for you after the trip, and Fishhawk Charters will supply you with all the gear you need. Bring your favorite snacks and drinks and get ready for an unforgettable day on the water!

I was fortunate to grow up on Anna Maria Island, located just south of Tampa Bay and the St. Pete's Beach area. I was surrounded by the pure white quartz sandy beaches and turquoise clear blue Gulf of Mexico. It brings me great pleasure to provide guests with the ideal conditions, choice equipment, and best, top-shelf vessels, so they can fully enjoy "the full true fishing experience" here on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Our goal is to exceed your expectations!
