Chummy Fishing Charters

Chummy Fishing Charters’ familiarity and knowledge of the marine life will guarantee a fun and fulfilling day of fishing in the clear Gulf waters. Captain Steve is a full time charter operator who enjoys nothing more than to spend time on the water with his guests, and share his fishing secrets with them. He is a fun person to be around, and his vast experience acquired by fishing all over the country will certainly come in handy when tackling fish.

Captain Steve operates a 23 foot Carolina skiff which originally built in 2007, and is powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. The skiff contains all the necessities for a day on the water such as a GPS, VHF radio and a fishfinder. It has a wireless trolling motor to make it ultra quiet when trolling for fish in the shallower waters, as well as a an automatic shallow water anchoring system, Transom live wells, and an icebox to preserve the freshness of the catch until you are back at the shore.

You will be fishing in the Tampa Bay and Gulf of Mexico for a variety of species such as Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, Barracuda, Cobia, Groupers, Redfish, Snook, Seabass and Tarpon. They can take you fishing inshore, nearshore and to nearby reefs, so you get a good variety of species available. All fishing gear is provided in terms of rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial bait. Captain Steve will also provide you with a valid Florida Fishing licence. Once back on dry land, Captain Steve will efficiently clean and fillet your catch so you can take away completely boneless fillets home.
