Whether you’re a pro or completely new to open-sea fishing, this Tampa gift experience is sure to hook you. Board a 90-foot vessel from Clearwater Beach for a journey up to 10 miles offshore, during which you’ll have the opportunity to reel in grunts (from the snapper family), sea bass, grouper, king fish and even the occasional shark in the warmer months. If you’ve never done this type of fishing before then it’s easy to learn, especially with a professional and friendly crew right there to ensure you pick things up quickly, and if you’re an old-hand then you’ll love this scenic and relaxed day out on the water.
A typical trip lasts around four hours, with some two hours of fishing time, maybe a little more if conditions permit. Getting out to the fishing grounds can take between 45 and 60 minutes so you’ve plenty of time to pick up useful tips from the crew. Once the lines are out, if the fish aren’t biting, the boat will simply move on to another spot. Deckhands take care of your catch, icing it down on numbered stringers, and for a small supplement will be happy to clean it for you back at the dock. Fishing out at sea is a completely different experience to doing it on land, and must be tried once!
