We may launch from a number of boat ramps in the area, this all depends on the bite or on your ability to travel very far and we will discuss this prior to your charter. The Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Florida area is known for providing large trout, redfish, snook, tarpon, pompano and lots of other species of fish. The time of the year will dictate to a large degree what species of fish we will target, again, we will talk about this prior to your charter.

Fishing the intracoastal waterways of the Gulf Coast is similar to fishing a lake. This means that sea sickness is typically not a problem as the area is pretty well protected with barrier islands. Most of the water fished is between 1' to 6' deep and many times within a few hundred yards of land (land is always within site).

We primarily use spinning tackle due to the light lures or bait used in this type of fishing. If you are not familiar with this type of fishing gear we will gladly teach you. Fly fishing is an exciting way to catch these shallow fish so if this is your preferred angling method please feel free to bring your own fly rod.

We strongly encourage catch and release, it is rewarding to see them swim away. That said, if you would like to keep one or more fish for a great dinner, we will clean your catch for a small fee. Any fish over your legal limit will be released immediately. You cannot count the captain as part of your legal limit.

The Day Away Charters boat is a 20 Ft. Renegade Skate Flats Boat with a 115 Mercury motor. This is a stable, comfortable boat for the type of fishing we will be doing.
