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.

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Clearwater

Yes I Would. But need to watch the weather and what time of year for the main fish you want to catch. It was our first time our Captain was great with us and was excellent with my 8 year old granddaughter. She had a great time. Thanks again to our Captain

We didn't have ideal weather as it was overcast and a bit windy with a storm coming in, but the fish were hungry and biting. We packed some long sleeves since it was a little chilly with the wind, but overall it was a great experience.

Do not schedule other plans during your day of fishing. The time may change if the captain thinks a different time is appropriate due to the tide :)

Capt Mike was great, He uses natural bait. Hit all his favorite spots that hold fish and worked the tides. Caught 10 fish on a day that was not ideal condition. Other anglers/boats nearby did not appear to be having success, while we did

For any first time anglers in Clearwater, I recommend understanding which fish are in seasons if you are planning to keep any. There are many regulations to promote a healthy fishing ecosystem.

I have fished Fresh water in Wisconsin/ Canada. I have fished salt water in Myrtle beach/ Key West / Punta Gorda and even Cabo San Lucas. Not every fishing trip produces non-stop action. Your guides know the area; communicate with them on what you are wanting to do. If they say that is not a good idea… trust them.
