Captain Ted Nesti Inshore Fishing trips operate out of St. Petersburg, Florida. Capt. Ted is a Florida native and US Coast Guard licensed captain. With over 40 years of fishing experience, he knows a great deal about fishing the inshore waterways of the Tampa Bay area, Pinellas County, and the notorious Gulf of Mexico.

Capt. Ted operates a fully-equipped, 23’ Hanson center console. Powered by a 150 HP Suzuki four stroke engine, this vessel boasts a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. She’s outfitted with a 10’ PowerPole anchor system and an assortment of navigational electronics such as GPS and Fishfinder. There’s room on board for up to six anglers.

Depending on the season, you might reel in other species such as Hogfish, Cobia, and King Mackerel, as well.

Fishing close to shore means you and your family can focus on the experience without getting seasick. You can come aboard and try your luck for half a day, or book a full day trip and increase your chances of catching more fish. Capt. Ted will help you target your catch using the most effective technique, from spinning and jigging to drift fishing. He will also clean and fillet any keeper fish you’d like to take home.

AMAZING TRIP!!! Please read a REAL review - We caught a ton of fish, but only one keeper. Captain Ted came out of his way to pick us up and went well out of his way to put us on the fish. He was bothered when we didn’t find a hot spot. We would jump in his boat again and again, even though we didn’t bring home a ton of fish. Very knowledgeable. Very trustworthy. Amazing guide. Worth every penny!!!!

The weather, wind and fish were not cooperating out in the Gulf today but Captain Ted was able to move around enough to find the holes that were bitting the best.  It was my son’s first trip out on the water and we both had a great time while catching a lot of fish.  We got a little wet but Captain Ted still made it a great experience for my son and I.
