Deep Sea Fishing in Clearwater

There are many many reasons to visit the gorgeous city of Clearwater. Hugged by white-sand beaches, the turquoise waters of Tampa Bay, and the prolific Gulf of Mexico beyond, it’s a must-visit destination. Among many activities you can enjoy, fishing is at the very top. If you’re wondering why that’s the case, you only need to go on a deep sea fishing charter in Clearwater. 

The main advantage of these waters is diversity. Fishing action is excellent year-round, it’s only the species that take turns. Just about any prized deep sea fish you can think of feeds here – Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Wahoo, and the list goes on. For even more of a challenge, set your sights on Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, Sharks, and even Blue Marlin.

Bear in mind that the deep sea fishing grounds are some 15–50 miles offshore, sometimes even more if you’re targeting Tuna and Billfish in the bluewater. Big bottom dwellers, like Red and Gag Grouper, Snapper, and Amberjack hide in the deep waters far from land, but the thrill of landing one will be well worth the boat ride to the most productive spots.

When you’re hitting the water with deep sea fishing charters in Clearwater, it’s always recommended to book at least a 6-hour excursion. That way you’ll cover more ground and have better chances of getting something good. Of course, the longer the trip, the bigger the possibilities of an epic catch, so many guides offer expeditions that can last 10 hours or more. Your choice depends on your preferences and how much time you’d like to spend on the water.

Clearwater Beach Municipal Marina and KSK Marina Clearwater are the best places to find a captain and crew for your angling escapades.

Ask to catch lots of fish, they will put you on a spot to do that, if you ask to catch big fish, they will put you on the spot but if fish do not cooperate well then you won't catch fish. But in the first spot once you start catching fish you never know, you could catch something big .

Plenty of reef and inshore species to target. Don’t expect a deep water pelagic experience. The shelf here doesn’t get to blue water until many miles offshore.

Go fishing with CPT Mike. Very knowledgeable about his job. Easy to talk to. My brother and I had a blast catching a lot of fish in a short amount of time.

Hire a guide who knows the area. Read comments from guests. A guide obviously cannot guarantee catching fish but if he knows the area, he knows where the productive areas are. We knew nothing about Clearwater or fishing in February. Feedback from customers is your best source in choosing a guide.

Book a trip with Coastal Chaos and you’ll have fun. It was very hot and that hampered the bite a bit, but that is nothing anyone can control.

If you're going in the warmer days of the year, like late June, book off-shore trips. The in-shore waters are just a bit too warm, and this boats draft isn't suitable for fishing among the mangroves for fish like snook and the like.

Book a half day or full day trip as that will give you more time to fish in the deep water.

Go outside the Breakwater. But, then I have very, very limited experience to answer this question: just one time out I only know that in 3 hours we got very few bites, and only 1 caught fish.

John was an excellent guide and got us to where the fish were and we had several bites. With the size restrictions on fish we only had a few keepers; then again, that is just part of fishing. If we go to Clearwater area again we will definitely contact John.
