The new Fintastic is here. She is a 34 ft Seavee loaded with just about every option you could possibly want for a safe and productive day on the water. 

 

 

 

 

 

What's hot this month 

Fall fishing is in full swing right now. Lately we have been targeting the ever so tasty Hogfish. There are very few charters out there that actually target this elusive prey. By far one of the best eating reef dwellers in the Gulf of Mexico. We will also be bringing in the new year with the opening of Grouper season. Targeting these bruisers on natural ledges and coral outcroppings in depths from 50-150 feet of water. Make sure you eat a big breakfast before you tangle with these big boys. Monster Amberjack will also open and are out there waiting to test your strength. These Gulf Giants will put you to the test ranging in size from 30-80 lbs.

  


 

See you soon,

Capt. Steve

The "FINTASTIC" is a 34 ft. Sea Vee sport-fisherman.  

These vessels are well known in the industry as one of the most seaworthy and fishable boats on the water.

Our vessel exceeds all of the coast guard safety standards.  

Type I life jackets, a raft, epirb, Vessel monitoring system, Global star satellite telephone, commercial flair kit, 1st Aid, and all fire equipment.

The vessel is powered by a Yanmar diesel engine that will produce a cruising speed in excess of 27 knots, which lets us fish farther offshore than most of the fleet.

Trips depart daily from John's Pass in Madeira beach Florida, just seconds from the open Gulf of Mexico.

Target species include:

Grouper, Snapper, Amber-Jack, King and Spanish Mackerel,

Cobia, Sail-fish, Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi-mahi, and many other species that frequent the offshore waters. 

We are fully licensed and insured, holding both Federal and State fishing permits including fishing license for all anglers on board.

Only Federally permitted vessels are allowed fish the offshore waters here in the Gulf. 

 






Home of the original “GROUPER GUARANTEE”
“Hello everyone, Capt. Steve here. If you are looking for an arm burning, drag screaming, knock down, drag out, good trip, then, give us a try. We specialize in bottom fishing for Grouper, Snapper and Amberjack. It is very common to get our limit on the 8 hr trips. We target smaller, private coral outcroppings and breaks. In most cases you are getting bit before your bait even hits the bottom, as these spots only get fished when we are over them.

We also target many different species of Pelagics that frequent the area. These species include Cobia, King Mackerel, Wahoo, Mahi- Mahi, and even Sailfish. We target these fish with LIVE Bait only. Trolling lures is fun, but live baits draw incredible, aerial strikes that are sure to get your adrenaline going.

My golden rule when taking people fishing, has always been, give the customer exactly what they want, because I want you to come back and fish with us again next time you get the itch. So I make this Guarantee…
If we do not have legal
GROUPER IN THE BOX WHEN WE HIT THE DOCK, YOUR TRIP IS FREE.
When in season. 
Guarantee applies to any trip of 8hrs. (full day) or more. 
After 14 years we have yet to come back to the dock in ANY trip with no fish, and we intend to keep it that way. 

Located in Madeira Beach, Fintastic Fishing Charters offers Offshore and Deep Sea Fishing for King Mackerel, Barracuda, Tuna, Grouper, Snapper, Tarpon, Amberjack, Sailfish, Wahoo and many other species. Florida Charter Fishing at it best. Service includes, Clearwater, Tampa Bay, Gulf Beaches and St. Petersburg. Deep Sea Fishing is enjoyed most with one of the best Florida Charter Captains on the West Coast of Florida.
