Fishing Trip to Clearwater FL

Fishing Trip to Clearwater FL

Fishing in Clearwater Fl is a favorite adventure for people who like to fish, particularly people who want to fish in saltwater.  You’ll find the beautiful city of Clearwater located in Pinellas County, Florida on a peninsula on the Gulf of Mexico.  It has a population of approximately 107,000, and it’s a sunny, warm place with white sandy beaches and excellent fishing.  On a fishing trip to Clearwater Fl, you’ll find Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout, Silver King, and more.  This is an opportunity for you to catch fish that you may normally not have access to.

Tarpon fishing season, otherwise known as fishing for Silver King, runs from the end of March through October.  The peak time for the season is in May and June.  Fish inshore for Snook, Redfish, and Trout. Deep sea fishing, of course, is also a favorite in the area.  Catching a monster Grouper or a Snapper, or maybe a Blackfin Tuna, for example, is also a fisherman (or woman’s) favorite activity.

Some people who fish in the Clearwater area have their own boat.  But for those who don’t own a boat, hiring a fishing charter in Clearwater is the way to go.  If you hire a charter boat, you don’t need a fishing license as long as the boat’s captain has a boat permit.  Most of these charters aren’t just for an experienced fisherman.  Novice fisherman, as well as children, are welcomed on many of these charters.

When looking for a charter, the most professional and organized companies provide everything.  This would include the fishing permits and licenses, the rods and reels, all tackle and bait, USCG safety equipment, professional filleting of your fish and a bag for you to carry the fish home, and a bathroom for you to use onboard.

Before you hire a charter for a Clearwater FL trip:

1. Decide what kind of fish you want to catch.

As mentioned above, you can fish near shore, out in the open or both depending on the charter.  It will depend on what kind of fish you hope to catch.  For example, if you want to catch a giant Grouper, you’ll want to hire a charter that will take you out into the deep blue sea of Clearwater.

2. How much time do you want to spend on the charter?

You can rent a charter for various times.  For example, you can hire one for a half day, or you can hire one for a full day.  You can even hire a charter for just a few hours.  The cost of hiring the boat will depend on the amount of time you want to spend on the boat.

3. Once you’ve chosen the charter, investigate the times and prices.

All professional charters will have times and prices available on their website.  Check out the time and costs and then contact the charter with any questions you may have before you book.

4. Make sure you have what you need.

Although a charter will include things like rods and reels, etc., there are things that you’ll need to make sure you have.  For example, you’ll be out in the sunshine of Florida, which means you should have sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, etc. to protect you from the sun.  Also, some people get nauseous on fishing boats.  If you are one of those people, ensure that you have a supply of motion sickness pills, possibly taking one right before you start your trip.

Follow the tips above to choose a reputable fishing charter in Clearwater.  Then have a great time and enjoy your fishing trip!
