Indeed, it was a key reason why Ernest Hemingway made Florida his home in the 1930s, and it has been a high-profile element of every marina in the state ever since.
Put simply, big-game fishing is big business – and one of the most exciting things you can do in the Sunshine State.
Clearwater is a great base from which to sample this most Floridian of experiences, as the waters of the Gulf Coast are positively teeming with the likes of sea bass, white grunt, grouper, pompano, cobia, red snapper, hogfish, and amberjack, as well as the feeding grounds for some of the real headline grabbers, such as tarpon, sailfish, barracuda, blue marlin, and tuna, most of which can be found year-round.
We will put you at the heart of the reel-’em-in action aboard the 90ft Super Queen for a deep-sea fishing expedition you will never forget, with a four-hour tour that heads up to 10 miles offshore and is virtually guaranteed to get you hooked into The Big One.
It will make three or four stops during the tour, as the fishing dictates, and all your gear, bait, and licenses are included. It’s a perfect trip for beginners. Plus, if you catch that keeper, they’ll even clean it for you, for a small fee, so you can take it home for dinner. Hemingway eat your heart out!
And don’t forget all our Clearwater excursions include lunch, and the comfort of our luxury transport to and from the coast. If you’re looking for a trip to brag about to your friends when you get back home, this is definitely it.
