Angler’s Dream Fishing invites you aboard for the best offshore fishing there is near the coast of St. Pete Beach, Florida! Venture up to 14 miles out and fish in some of Florida’s famous reefs and wrecks, where the most exciting fish like to hide!

Picture yourself aboard a 56’ Duffy boat, powered by twin 450 HP Cummins engines. With a capacity for up to 37 people, this party boat puts extra emphasis on the word “party.” An onboard toilet, air conditioning, and complimentary bottled water make it especially easy to have a good time.

While aboard, you’ll enjoy drift fishing over the wrecks and reefs for Triggerfish, Snapper, Grouper, and Amberjack. Blacktip Sharks are also known to make many appearances here if you’re looking for a firey battle!

In these parts, the crew’s favorite sport is bottom fishing, which offers endless excitement and tasty rewards. When fishing in spring or fall, you might troll for fast and ferocious predators like King Mackerel and Barracuda on your way offshore and back.

Angler’s Dream Fishing welcomes passengers of all ages, whether you’re young in years or simply young at heart. The boat is Coast Guard certified and equipped with all necessary safety gear, from a first aid kit to life rafts. The crew also provides all the fishing gear you need for a productive day!

Bring along any other refreshments and snacks you’d like, call up your friends and family and tell ‘em you’re going fishing!

Angler's Dream Fishing runs trips seven days a week, thanks to the tireless work of its two captains, Bob and Joe. Captain Joe always loved to fish. He got his first job as a deckhand at age 15 and became a captain just 4 years later. He loves the water and putting people on fish. Captain Bob provides friendly guidance and makes an angler's first fishing experience easy and exciting!
