Get ready for a fun day of fishing in SW Florida! Captain Hank Valencia and Deep Color Fishing will guide you to a day of memories aboard the 22ft Fully Loaded Center Console. Whether you’re looking to fish half a day or the full day, let Deep Color Fishing provide you a fantastic trip you’ll never forget!

Deep Color Fishing specializes in fishing the reefs and wrecks throughout both the nearshore Gulf as well as the Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida. Captain Hank and crew are experts at giving anglers of all skill level the trip of a lifetime. Deep Color Fishing offers trips typically 9 miles out to target Snapper, Kingfish, Mackerel, Flounder, Barracuda, Grouper, Sea Bass, Pompano, Sharks, Redfish, Sheepshead, Hogfish, Cobia, Spotted Seatrout and more! If you have any question about what we’ll be fishing for, just let us know and we promise to give an accurate and transparent report.  The season and weather/winds will be the biggest determining factor for where we fish and what we find at the end of our lines.

Captain Hank is at the helm of a beautiful 22 ft Allcraft center console powered by a brand new Suzuki 175, 4-stroke engine. The vessel includes a custom T-top for shade, Bluetooth stereo, all of the latest electronics, and best safety equipment needed (including EPIRB; a beacon of sorts if needed in emergencies). We also have a GPS Trolling Motor that helps us sneak up on the fish without having to anchor.

Captain Hank grew up fishing Bass tournaments in So California, but has spent the last 10 years fishing the local waters, and is well-equipped to hunt down and catch the fish that live in and seasonally visit Florida’s West Coast. His experience and knowledge is utilized for your trip’s success. There’s no better Captain in the area to fish with than Captain Hank!

Four guests fit comfortably aboard the fishing vessel; and we have trips available for four, six, or eight hours. Everything you need is provided: including your fishing license, rods, reels, bait, and tackle. We also provide an ice chest with ice if you want to bring water, beer, or soda for the trip. We also recommend you bring snacks to eat, a hat or visor, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Children are welcome aboard, and we look forward to teaching the next generation a love for fishing!

Lastly, Deep Color Fishing meets their clients at beautiful War Veterans Park with clean restrooms and plenty of safe parking. If this sounds like the trip for you, look no further. We look forward to your Tampa Bay fishing adventure!

    • 4 hr trip

      Created Tori Olsen

      This was one of our adventures on our honeymoon and it was so worth it. Four hours just me and my husband and the fish we caught he cut right in front of us to take home or to take to a restaurant near by to cook it. Definitely check this guy out!!!

    • Loved this trip!

      Created Danielle P

      My husband and I went on a fishing trip with Captain Hank and had an amazing time! He takes care of you and makes sure you catch a lot of fish. Definitely would go again!

    • Great Time

      Created Justin Hare

      Had a great time running out of John's Pass a few weeks ago. Captain Hank had a list of spots to hit and we landed a lot of sea bass, mackerel, and a couple flounder. Hank showed us a few different methods, took care of everything, and kept us fishing. Afterwards, he cut up as many fillets as we wanted and sent them with us on ice. Made for some great eating throughout the week. Wouldn't hesitate to book again next time we're in the area.

    • Highly Recommended

      Created Joseph Martinez

      Had such a great time. We landed snapper, sheepshead, trout and various other species. We stopped at a bunch of places Captain Hank knew of. Would 100% do it again.

    • Lot's of catches

      Created Gregg DuPree

      Me and my dad went out with him a while back solid guide put us on the fish. Made the best of the time we had if they didn't bite good we moved. Got back and he cleaned all the fish filleted them out for us.Will definitely be going back. Thanks for the good time fishing.

    • Awesome Trip!

      Created Ty Bagge

      We fished July 5, 2017. Had an awesome trip and still caught plenty of fish despite moon phases slowing the bite down. If it slowed down where we were fishing it was off to the next area. He even let my 5 year old help drive the boat! Captain Hank is very family friendly and we just booked our trip for this year!
