Patrick Eckelbarger

Member since January 2015 Treasure Island, United States
Background
I specialize in offshore bottom fishing and trolling in the abundant St. Petersburg and Madeira Beach fishing grounds. I always wanted to be a captain since I was a kid and was lucky enough to live my dream. I love targeting Red Grouper, Amberjack, Hogfish, Gag Grouper, Snappers, Kingfish, Tunas, as well as various pelagics inhabiting the offshore grounds. This is my passion and we will do everything to show you what La Costa Charters is all about and why you are in good hands with us. We guarantee it!
