Skyway Sportfishing

Skyway Sportfishing is the premier charter service in the beautiful St Petersburg area, Florida. Captain Tony specializes in nearshore reef fishing the waters of Gulf of Mexico. He works hard to treat his friends and clients to the best fishing experience in pure comfort, ease, and reliability.

Enjoy a ride with Skyway Sportfishing aboard a cream-of-the-crop 28-foot WhiteWater center console, custom-built by a famous boat builder Norm Collins in Miami, Florida. This fishing machine comes powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine and has a maximum cruising speed of 46 knots. There is plenty of fishing space for up to four anglers and a full walk-around casting platform. Prepared for the current bite, the boat is wheelchair accessible and equipped with navigational electronics, such as GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. There is an anchoring system to help you stay rooted, an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day, and 3 livewells, as well as a full T-top for some shade.

A fishing experience with the Captain is nothing short of world class. He is familiar with the hottest spots, where you could have some light tackle and spinning action for Blackfin Tuna, King Mackerel, Tarpon, Little Tunny, Mangrove Snapper, Cobia, Flounder, Amberjack, Red and Black Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Blacktip Shark, and who knows what else, all depending on the season and what is biting. The trips are four and eight hours.

A trip with Skyway Sportfishing comes inclusive with the licenses for you and your groups, as well as all the necessary equipment to make an outstanding catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip for a ride home. Also, the Captain will offer drinks for you, so feel free to bring food on board.

Tony first started fishing with his grandpa in Northern Michigan at the age of 5. After personally testing virtually all of the celebrated hotspots of the US, he finally settled down in what he considers the ultimate fish heaven - the Tampa Bay waterways. Tony has had a privilege to guide fishing charters in many places throughout the country, and fishing in the bay area is by far his favorite.
