Treasure Island is part of the barrier islands along the Gulf coast that have a direct connection with areas like St. Pete Beach and Tierras Verde. These are all part of an amazing inshore fishery, that has direct ocean access to the Gulf. If you are looking for a fishing charter in the area, Treasure Island is one of the best starting points.
Types Of Fishing Charters
Treasure Island is situated along one of the most productive fishing grounds anywhere. Whether inshore or offshore, there are fishing charters that will meet your needs. We here at Non-Stop Fishing Charters dedicate to fishing the area in a few productive ways. We will go over each below.
Inshore fishing charters are the number one choice for folks visiting the area. These are dedicated trips that take you into the backcountry, flats, and open waters of Tampa Bay, Boca Ciega Bay, and surrounding waters. Tampa Bay itself is the state’s largest open-water estuary system and offers you shots at a laundry list of highly sought-after gamefish.
- Black Drum
- Spanish Mackerel
And, countless others.
These trips are extremely popular not only due to the non-stop fishing action, but they are relaxing, places you in a truly unique habitat, and allow you to sightsee wildlife while fishing some of the best flats and backcountry Florida has to offer.
Nearshore fishing charters are much like they sound, you are fishing deeper waters, but within sight of the shore. This zone of the gulf fishery allows you to fish for offshore quality fish, without the hours-long boat rides.
Just inside of 35-40 feet of water, you will find yourself targeting kingfish, spanish mackerel, grouper, and snapper.
Seasonal Tarpon Fishing Charters
This area is home to a resident population of tarpon that can be targeted most of the year. But, Treasure Island is also along the annual tarpon migration route. In the summer, and stretching into fall, this fishery comes alive with thousands of tarpon and will offer shoots at landing The Silver King. This is a bucket list trip you would not want to miss.
Family-Centered Fishing Charters
When fishing with family, including kids, it is important that your experience is a memorable one. These family-focused fishing charters can take place in much of the same ways as the standard charters that we’ve gone over already – with inshore fishing being the safest bet (for everyone to have a good time).
The importance is that your hired fishing guide is welcoming and knowledgeable when spending a day on the water. It becomes a day of action and learning that will be sure to become a long-lasting memory that all will look back on as a great experience.
