Scotty J's Charters LLC.

Get down to Gulfport, Florida, and embark on an inshore and nearshore fishing adventure with Scotty J’s Charters, a veteran owned and family operated company. Launching out of Gulfport Municipal Marina, their location gives them quick and easy access to the prime fishing waters in the Gulf of Mexico, the waters surrounding the iconic Sunshine Skyway Bridge, and Tampa Bay. Out on the water daily, they keep a finger on the pulse and are always up to date on fishing conditions.

You’ll be riding out into the Florida sun on a 2021, 26’ Sea Hunt Gamefish center console with room for up to 5 adults and 1 child. Onboard the boat you’ll find up-to-date Garmin fishfinder and chartplotter, radar equipment, live bait wells, and iceboxes to keep your beverages chilled. There’s also a flushable toilet on board.

If you wish to go offshore (depending on the season) you will fish for King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, both Red and Gag Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, and much more. Depending on the species, this will be done by either slow trolling, drifting, or anchoring over wrecks with their On-Spot GPS anchor.

If inshore is your interest, you are just a short boat ride away from some incredible fishing in the waters surrounding the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and any of the numerous rock piles or ledges targeting many of the same species you would target offshore. In the winter months, you’ll usually switch over to Sheepshead.

All fishing equipment, tackle, bait, catch cleaning, and your fishing license are all included in the price on this trip. Just remember to take some food and drinks along with you.

Scotty J’s Charters promises you a clean vessel, well-maintained equipment, and a fun day on the water! If you have a special request, do not hesitate to ask, if able, the captain will gladly accommodate you. So come out and enjoy the sunshine on the deck or some shade under the large T-top with misters and go catch some fish!

I am a veteran and former paramedic. I started fishing piers and breakwaters in Southern California at the age of 8. At the age of 14 I joined the Sea explorers which turned the ocean and fishing into a real passion. At the age of 16, I started working as a deckhand on boats out of Newport Beach California. That is where the dream of being a charter boat captain began. Currently I fish the offshore waters off Anna Maria Island, St Petersburg, and Clearwater Beach. Inshore we fish the waters from Egmont key to upper Tampa Bay
