We tried fishing on the piers but had very little luck. We also tried an inshore fishing trip and caught a few small fish but nothing we could keep. We decided to try a longer, deep sea fishing trip and caught many fish and even have fish to bring home.

Was very hot and red tide made the fishing tough, however the Captain and crew did everything possible and fish were caught. If you want to catch fish and have a crew that goes above and beyond, this Captain and crew are top notch.

If this is your first ocean fishing experience I recommend booking with Offshore Addicts. Its a whole lot different than fishing in the midwest where we are from but they made the experience so enjoyable!

Ask alot of questions before you book. What you can and can't keep , if you have a certain fish you want to catch if it is in season ask if your Charter has the proper license and tags for what you are fishing for.

keep in mind that the number and size of the fish available are reduced because of the red tide of 2018, especially the in-shore fish like snapper, sea bass, snook etc. still very much fun

We flew out from Southern California for our anniversary and spent a day on the water with Captain Kevin. The boat was great and Kevin was a great Captain and guide. He was very knowledgeable about the fish in the area and put us on the bite from the beginning to end of our trip. I would definitely recommend the Double Time fishing charter trips. Thanks again Kevin! Dave and Noni

We had a great time catching a variety of different fish with Capitan Jeff. None of us had any experience salt water fishing, but it was made as easy as possible. If your looking for an inshore fishing trip in the St. Pete area, you won’t be disappointed!

We caught fish and captain Mark helped set up the poles for us. In fact, he did everything that we asked for and more. My son is coming down with some of his buddies just to go fishing with Captain Mark. When we visit Florida again we definitely will go again and again! 🎣🎣🎣

First time salt water fishing. Captain had great communication. His boat had plenty of room for 4 anglers. We had a great time catching the smaller ones. It was fun seeing all of the different species of fish that you can find in salt water. Thank you for a fun day.

We booked with captain James and he reached out to me about the trip due to unexpected issues James was not able to take us. James did make it work with a fellow captain Thomas Briese and the fishing trip was awsome. Thanks James for all the work you did to give e me and my family an unforgettable fishing trip and hat tip to captain Tom

My 3 kids (ages 6-10) and I went for a 2-hour fishing trip with Mike. It was awesome! We had almost no experience fishing, but Mike took us to a place where the fish happened to be hanging out at the time. We caught lots of mangrove snapper and one gag grouper—probably about 40 fish in all! Two hours was just the right length of time in the hot sun for my kids. Mike was a great and patient teacher in showing us what to do. I highly recommend him!!
