First, I just want to say, we have the best clients in the world! It is such a pleasure and honor to fish with so many great people and the past month was no exception. From kids of all ages and experience levels to adults from around the world, it is always a blast.

This is why we are heavily invested in the best boats, electronics and fishing gear to ensure your St. Pete Fishing Charter exceeds your expectations. Even if you are with us for only half, you get the red carpet treatment!

The experience inshore around Tampa Bay and St. Pete is like no other in the world. Our beautiful mangroves hold some of the most healthy ecosystems around and the fish are thriving. You don’t have to worry about getting seasick, as the backcountry is always calm and even when it’s windy, we have areas to take cover and hide.

Check out this nice Redfish caught off the ledges near the mangroves.

Between the redfish and snook action, our anglers are staying very busy. Utilizing our trolling motor we are able to remain stealthy and get into areas without spooking the fish. Just check out this beautiful snook caught and released.

Trust that your Tampa Bay Fishing Guide has years of experience and your short time with us is efficiently spent with our local knowledge. By fishing daily, we generally know where the fish are, not to mention our extensive log books we have kept over the years to identify trends.

All you need to bring is food and drinks and we fish up to four people where everyone gets in on the action!

As the fall transition goes into full swing, the fishing is going to continue to heat up. We are rigging up and switching our patterns to adapt as the fishing changes.

We are fully operational and fishing everyday during the COVID pandemic and taking extra precautions to have our extra clean.

We have several dates available in November and December. Please give me a call directly if you would to experience what Tampa Bay and St. Pete have to offer. I look forward to fishing with you.

Tight Lines,
Captain Ben

About The Author: Captain Ben Boyle

Company: Native Sportfishing

Area Reporting: Tampa Bay

Bio: My roots in the Tampa Bay area run deep. I was born right here in Saint Petersburg, Florida and my passion for fishing the waters surrounding Tampa Bay was cultivated at an early age. Along with my father and brother, I spent much of my youth fishing everywhere for everything that could be caught in saltwater. As one of the few true “Natives” I took full advantage of every chance to observe and dissect the habits of the gamefish that call Tampa Bay home. The only thing more enjoyable than fishing in my “backyard” is to introduce folks like YOU to the diverse surroundings that make Tampa Bay such a unique fishery and home to beautiful wildlife. I take great pleasure in watching my clients get immersed in this awe-inspiring place. Come join me aboard my 25 C-Hawk “Native 1” as we pursue legendary saltwater species such as Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Black Drum, Mackerels, Kingfish, Snappers, Groupers and various Shark species. You’ll never forget the experience of stalking these species in a multitude of habitats aboard the most comfortable and best-equipped inshore vessel on Tampa Bay. " Captain Ben
