Gulfcoast-Fishing Charters

Gulfcoast-Fishing Charters offers amazing fishing adventures year round! Captain Bobby Burnett is a sixth generation Floridian and fishing has been a huge part of his life since childhood.

This is a family friendly charter and Capt. Bobby always gives his best to tailor his trips around the interests, special needs, and age of his guests. Since taking kids fishing is one of his favorite things to do, there is no minimum age policy for them – everybody’s welcome. Capt. Bobby supplies safety equipment, but please bring a life jacket for your kid if they’re under 2 years old.

Head out on the captain’s 25’ Sea Hunt, newly built in 2017. This fishing machine is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine that can reach a maximum speed of 40 knots, taking you swiftly to the best fishing spots. The vessel is perfect for this area, as it’s equally efficient in one foot shallow flats and in deep offshore waters. It’s comfortable and reliable, and has all the latest electronics.The boat accommodates up to 6 guests and everybody can fish at the same time.

Your captain will take you fishing in the inshore and nearshore waters around St. Pete’s Beach. You can go after acrobatic Tarpon, search for the big schools of Redfish, catch tasty Grouper in the flats, fight voracious Speckled Trout, or reel in voracious Snook. You can also fish for Cobia, Sheepshead, Snapper, Giant Sharks, or Black Drum – you just never know what’s going to bite your bait!

Capt. Bobby will prepare your fishing equipment and live bait, while you should bring your drinks and snacks. He will also clean and fillet your catch after the trip, so bringing a cooler for the meat is a good idea.

Book your spot with Gulfcoast-Fishing Charters and have a day to remember!

I'm Capt. Bobby Burnett. I am a sixth generation Floridian. Commercial and charter fishing has been a huge part of my life since I was born. After years of taking family and friends fishing for fun I decided to make it a career. I bought a boat, got a License and haven't looked back since. I love taking people out to see what the area has to offer. Each day is a new experience for me and my customers. I generally fish live bait on light spinning gear. Techniques vary based on time of year and target species. I try my best to match a customer's ability level with the type of fishing we'll do. I'm comfortable taking advanced anglers as well as people that have never held a rod before. I also enjoy fishing with kids and teaching them everything they need to know.
