St. Petersburg Nearshore Fishing Charters

Nearshore Fishing Charters Starting at $500
(All trips include two people. Each additional person is $50, up to 6 people)

Nearshore fishing charters are a great way to keep your rods bent and put some tasty fish in the cooler! Capt. Nate Diaz and Big Bay Fishing Charters will take you and your group out onto the nearshore waters (within 9 miles of the coast) of St. Petersburg and Clearwater Beach in search of flounder, mackerel, sharks, cobia, king mackerel, porgy, triggerfish, snapper and grouper.

We’ll fish live bait on light to medium tackle around wrecks and structure to maximize the live action you and your group experience!

And, your Captain will happily clean and package your legal catch at the end of your trip. He’ll even recommend local restaurants, which will gladly prepare your fresh catch for you that evening!!

Captain Nate was a phenomenal captain he was great with my 11 year old son who was a bit nervous about the trip. Captain Nate made sure everyone of us caught a fish!! I was really there to spot some dolphins and Captain Nate really went out of his way to make sure I did! I would recommend Captain Nate to anyone looking for for an experienced and family friendly adventure on the water. We will definitely be back with captain Nate next year !!
