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 had a great day in the water. Captain Hunter was very personable, well prepared, the boat was clean, spacious, he had cold water and snacks for us. He was also knowledgeable about the area and gave us tips and tricks to hook a few snook. We caught fish and enjoyed seeing lots of dolphins and manatees. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lock it Down Sportfishing with Captain Hunter on your next trip to St Pete area.

Capt Bobby was very knowledgeable of the fishing area. He made our experience fun. He was engaging and even fished with us. When he caught a fish he would pass it off to someone so they could enjoy the fight. Would definitely recommend him.
