Clearwater Custom Charters invites you to experience the best inshore and nearshore fishing charter in the Gulf of Mexico. We offer flexible start times that can be decided by you to best fit your schedule. Our goal is to deliver you a safe, fun, action-packed day out on the water. 

Captain Charles Giarrizzo will be your charter guide as you search for that trophy catch of a lifetime. Capt. Charles is a life-long fisherman. He began fishing in Long Island Sound years before acquiring his USCG Merchant Marina Credential and began chartering Shark and Tuna trips aboard the “The Hustler”, a 32′ Black Fin Sport Fisherman, out of Montauk, N.Y.Captain Charles founded Clearwater Custom Charters in Clearwater Beach Florida in 1999. He continues to be the consummate shark hunter here in the Gulf waters providing the ultimate thrill for his anglers. 

 

You and Capt. Charles will be sailing out of Clearwater but can also venture out to the magnificent fishing grounds around Tampa, St. Petersburg, Largo, Palm Harbor, New Port Richey, Tarpon Springs, and many other locations along the central west coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico.  

 

Clearwater Custom Charters operates a 27’ Grady White cuddy cabin that includes an enclosed cabin with a toilet for privacy and convenience. It has plenty of space for up to six guests. The vessel comes powered by a 325 HP Vortec engine and is fitted with top-notch navigational electronics to save your time while searching for fish. 

 

Our fishing charter trips love to target Sharks and Cobia, but do not be surprised if you see a Grouper, Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, Snook, or even a Seabass on the other end of your line as you are fighting to reel it in.

There are plenty of sights and scenery to take in on our trips like dolphins passing by, giant sea turtles, and curious manatees coming to the boat to see what’s going on. We will provide gear, tackle, and bait as needed, as well as a fishing license. You only need to bring your favorite drinks and snacks and show up!

Inshore fishing charters by Clearwater Custom Charters is an experience like no other! See for yourself by booking a trip with us today!
