La Costa Charters

La Costa Charters specializes in trolling and bottom fishing for a variety of species inhabiting the offshore waters of Florida. Heading offshore from Johns Pass, you’ll hit spots of between 15 and over 40 miles in the Gulf of Mexico, to bring home some exotic and delicious fish. Captain Patrick Eckelbarger always wanted to be a captain, and now that he is one, he won’t let you down! He promises a professional, yet personal service with lots of fish.

You’ll be casting off a 32’ Sabalo pilothouse vessel, custom-designed for offshore trips. She comes equipped with a range of navigational gear and fish finding electronics, such as GPS, radio, and fishfinder to get you on the fish. The boat has a bathroom on board and plenty of comfortable seating to accommodate up to 6 anglers, along with a multimedia system, and a cooler with fresh ice. You’re in for a luxury treatment.

Depending on the duration of your trip, you’ll be bottom fishing and trolling the deeper waters to reel in as many fish as possible. You’ll mainly be going after Groupers, Snappers, Amberjack, and Kingfish. However, Barracuda and Hogfish can be found near wrecks and reefs, and you may even catch a Tuna on a longer trip. All rods, reels and terminal tackle are waiting for you on board, along with a range of lures and live bait to trick them onto your line.

With a qualified first mate on board, you’ll be looked after throughout the day. The action is great all year round, so you’re in for a memorable day on the water whenever you’re free. The captain will clean and fillet your catch, so you should just bring a cooler and leave it in the car ready to welcome the delicious fish. Pack food and drinks, put on a cap, sunglasses, and bring a camera to mark this unforgettable day. Hop aboard and get on the fish!

I specialize in offshore bottom fishing and trolling in the abundant St. Petersburg and Madeira Beach fishing grounds. I always wanted to be a captain since I was a kid and was lucky enough to live my dream. I love targeting Red Grouper, Amberjack, Hogfish, Gag Grouper, Snappers, Kingfish, Tunas, as well as various pelagics inhabiting the offshore grounds. This is my passion and we will do everything to show you what La Costa Charters is all about and why you are in good hands with us. We guarantee it!
