We have expectations of only catching a few fish. They where exceeded ten fold. We started small with shephead to make sure we got some fish. Then we stepped it up from species to species and did amazing on all. Steve is a great guy…More
Pocket Change Inshore Fishing Charters include everything you need, from a fishing license to quality tackle. Depending on the species, you can keep your catch and Capt. Anthony will clean and fillet it for you.
Even if there is a good reason why Snook and Redfish make it to the top of your angler’s list, you simply cannot miss the opportunity to catch Trout, one of the tastiest fish. Those shallow flats inhabitants are easy to catch and make great table fare, just like Sheepshead and the bottom-hugging flatfish Flounder. Flounder can be found relatively close to the shore, hiding in the sand of moving waters around passes and inlets. Off the shore, you can find them near reefs and shipwrecks. Nibblers Sheepshead also hang out there. You can always count on Sheepshead bite during the winter!
Thanks Captain You are truly a professional! Easy going and you did not yell at us like the last captain. We fished a lot of the back country of Tampa Bay. What a view from your boat I will be sending my clients your way again and again.
St.Pete Beach has also been providing similar action to Clearwater beach, and the Redfish have been providing consistent action for charter trips we have done lately. St. Pete is a great area to fish out of because of the action at the mouth of the bay which means every fish that goes in and out of the bay have to pass St.Pete beach going between Egmount Key and Ft.Desoto Park, if you would to fish any of these areas specifically just let me know.

On the Space Coast, black drum have been caught in both the Haulover Canal and the northern end of the Banana River. Fresh cut mullet, ladyfish, and live shrimp on a jig head are getting the best bite. Anglers will want to cast the bait in front of the fish or rest the bait on the bottom along channel drop-offs. These black drum have been averaging 15 inches with the largest fish measuring 23 inches, reports Capt. Keith Mixon of Mixin’ Work With Play Fishing Charters. (321-212-8484).
“It’s really relaxing to come out here and fish,” said Jamie Messina, 42, of Tampa. “It’s nice coming out here at night when the lights are on and you have the view of the city. You can catch jacks and angel fish. I’ve even seen some small hammerhead (sharks) caught here.”

It’s crazy that different types of lures work on many of the same fish. I really like the look of the white bucktail. I will have to ask my dad if he has ever been saltwater fishing, and what lures he used.
Where found: OFFSHORE species associated with rocky reefs, debris, and wrecks, typically in 60 – 240 feet of water; sometimes caught NEARSHORE in south Florida; juveniles associated with floating objects and may occur in water less than 30 feet deep.
The irony is that back when I was growing up in Florida, if someone said, “fishing the flats,” that simply meant you had accidently run your boat up on a sandbar and you went fishing with the lightest tackle you had on the boat while you waited for the tide to come in…
“In addition to being a huge conservation tool that limits the chances of hooking a fish deeply, inline circle hooks actually catch more fish. When set properly, it’s difficult for a fish to shake it — and that provides great peace of mind when that tarpon, big snook or sailfish takes to the air.”
Today my girlfriend and I went on a fishing trip with Captain Anthony and Joey, it was a gift for her birthday. Both were great guys and gave us a true quality experience. It was a new experience for …both of us. My girlfriend reeled in 2 sharks and a pufferfish. I caught 2 mackerel and a cobia. The cobia was actually Captain Anthony’s line but he gave it to me when it hooked so I could bring him in. Then they even filleted and bagged the fish for us to take home. We took them to a restaurant to eat fresh. Perfect day thanks to Pocket Change Inshore Fishing Charters See More
Inshore boat fishing is fishing from a boat in easy sight of land and in water less than about 30 metres deep. The boat can be as small as a dinghy. It can be a row boat, a runabout, an inflatable or a small cabin cruiser. Inshore boats are typically small enough to be carried on a trailer, and are much more affordable than offshore fishing boats. In recent times fishing from a kayak has become popular.
The Ed Alber Tarpon Rodeo Tournament has come! Tarpon are the star of the show. Redfish are all over the flats and mangrove shorelines. Spanish Mackerel and Mangrove Snapper invade the bay and Trout are feeding on the grass flats.
With a second set of controls up in the tower, sight fishing ability is greatly enhanced. The net effect is more time spent fishing where the fish are. The tower also increases the chances at getting a good cast at a roving Cobia, Shark or Tarpon that otherwise might not be seen.
Whether Osborne is guiding one or six anglers to some of the world’s best light tackle fishing, you’ll never catch him fishing himself or sitting on his butt, even on an eight-hour charter. That’s because he’s too busy rigging, chumming, baiting hooks and releasing fish. Osborne prides himself as being the hardest working fishing guide in the industry. He remains on his feet tirelessly during your entire charter, to make sure you have the very best fishing experience available for your money, bar none.
Todd, Its always a pleasure having you on the boat. I wish the Kings would of shown up like they should of but I guess the grouper wasnt to bad of a catch. Congrats on getting your first Triple Tail! Capt. Steve Betz

The original bridge was destroyed when the freighter Summit Venture collided with a column of the bridge during a storm on May 9, 1980. In 1992, the center spans of the old bridge were demolished and the remaining sections on the Pinellas and Manatee county sides were converted into piers. The south Skyway pier is the longest fishing pier in the world.
Yes, please meet Captain Mike Anderson. Born and raised in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on June 9, 1968, Captain Mike was introduced to fishing at a very young age. Reared in a family of fishing enthusiasts, Mike joined his father and uncle on a regular basis throughout his childhood, as they would cast for walleye, muskie and perch.
“Had a great time fishing with Capt Jason. Jason put us on the fish and it was non-stop action right from the moment we put our lines in the water. Myself, my 17 yr old daughter, and her friend just hooked fish after fish. Reds, spanish mackerel, jacks,sea trout,and silver trout just to name a few. Capt Jason put us on a school of reds that just wore us out!”
