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 great!! Had a lovely 4 hr fishing trip with Nate. We caught some good fish and we were able to see a different part of the Bay. Nate played some great music while we fished and was very personable. But the most important part was that he made my wife comfortable with fishing. I would highly recommend booking a trip with Captain Nate. We will book a trip with him anytime we are back in St. Petersburg.

Absolutely phenomenal experience. Came down from Georgia and wanted to get some good fishing done while I was down. A friend of mine recommend big bay fishing charters so we decided to give it a shot. Not only was Captain Nate professional, his customer service was top notch. We had a morning charter at 8:30, then we were catchin fish at 8:43.. If you are looking for a charter in the Bay Area, look no further than Big Bay Charters and Capt. Nate. Highly recommend and will be booking more charters with him in the near future. Thanks Nate.
