Snook Fishing in Saint Petersburg

Located at the mouth of the Tampa Bay as it spills into the Gulf, St. Petersburg, FL, is an angler’s paradise. Make it your base for a thrilling inshore trip and step aboard a charter for Snook fishing in St. Petersburg. From the mangroves and flats in winter, to the open bays in summer, you’ll have a range of fishing grounds to explore year round!

What to Expect

St. Petersburg’s proximity to Bradenton, Tampa, and Sarasota will make you feel like you’re at the center of the fishing universe. Spend between four and eight hours on the water and battle it out with tough-fighting Snook. Longer trips will take you to some of the most prized fishing grounds, while shorter trips will yield plenty of rewards along the shoreline. 
These fish prefer the warm water, so you’ll want to follow them up the creeks and canals in winter. In summer, the beach is the place to be. In stunning surroundings, you’ll be able to spot your prey before going after them, as they’ll make themselves known when desperate for some feeding. 
Trips take place aboard light, shallow-hulled boats in order for you to navigate the shallowest of spots. You’ll want to creep up quietly on your prey, as Snook can spook easily. Your experienced captain will give you all the guidance you need, giving you the most of your visit to St. Petersburg.

How to Prepare

Everything you need for a productive day on the water will be waiting for you on board your St. Petersburg Snook fishing charter. Bring your own drinks and snacks aboard, make sure to protect against the sun, and settle in for a thrilling day on the water. The rich waters around St. Petersburg are calling your name!

Captain Treg ran an excellent charter! Extremely friendly, resourceful, and knowledgeable. We had a great time out on the water today - lots of fun, and lots of fish. Tell him what you’re looking for and he knows where to go to find and catch it!

"Great 3/4 day trip."

Christopher Knipe fished with Markin’ Fish Charters on December 2, 2019

Had great fun taking the family out on a charter. We probably caught over 20 fish on the trip. The boat offers a smooth ride experience and the toilet helps ensure we can bring anyone on the boat. We would certainly take this charter again as it was a positive experience.

Captain Brett was very nice and tried hard to put us on fish. We had a lot of catches but not very many big ones. He was great to communicate with prior to the trip and a pleasure to be with on the boat.
