TROLLING

Trolling in Tampa Bay

Bottom fishing to catch grouper? Nonsense! 

Nearshore Charter Services offers a different approach, Trolling for grouper inside the Skyway Bridge. That’s right - Inside the bay! Loading up with grouper fillets is a sure bet when trolling these bay area rock piles during the right season. When trolling for grouper we are able to cover a larger range of water and not have to worry about getting hung up in the rocks. Having a little breeze in your face is a nice bonus as well. For those that prefer the nice fight of fast running pelagic we also offer trips when the water temperatures are right for King and Spanish Mackerels. Throw in the occasional Bonita or Barracuda and it makes for a fun and exciting day!

WHAT TO BRING

The Florida sun can be pretty brutal at times. At Nearshore Charter Services we are all about safety first! Forgetting sunscreen can lead to a really bad few days after your adventure. Please do not forget to bring and apply your sunscreen!
We HIGHLY suggest bringing sunglasses along for your adventure. A day on the water without sunglasses can really put stress on your eyes. Not only will a pair of sunglasses stop you from squinting, it will also allow you to see fish that are underwater better!
Nearshore Charter Services will provide you with plenty of ice cold water when you are aboard, but the sun and non stop fishing action may work up your appetite! We suggest you bringing along a sandwich or some snacks of your choice.
