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

If you can book a trip late May prior to schools getting out and summer kicking off you’ll have a great time. I suggest a weekday as during the weekend it get really busy on the water and beaches but our Saturday trip was still very do-able and a great time! Zero complaints about the charter and the area we selected

Be prepared to catch some fish! Even if the weather looks calm and perfect, bring a light jacket, the wind picks up on the water when the boat is moving quick and it can get chilly.

this is a good choice for those who would prefer in shore and flats fishing which is generally easier to get to, and more reliable if the weather conditions (rain, wind, etc) are a concern. Captain Matt will work his tail off for you to give you the best chances to catch fish. His boat is comfortable, has seats for 3-4. and is about as easy as any to get into or out of, if mobility is an issue for you. I would recommend this charter!

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.
