Hey Jude Fishing charters offers first-class inshore and nearshore fishing adventures in the beautiful Tampa Bay, Florida area. Fishing with us gives you the chance to explore the nearshore waters of the area and bring home all the exciting species Tampa has to offer!

 

Captain Wayne Shuff will be leading the way for you on your fishing charter journey. Capt. Wayne has been exploring these waters for over 37 years. He caught his first fish at age 4 and has been in love with fishing ever since. Capt. Wayne has been described by his guests as personable, patient, and very knowledgeable – and he loves sharing his knowledge with his fellow anglers! You and Capt. Wayne will be sailing out of St. Petersburg, but could end up in the likes of Tampa, Clearwater, Sarasota, Bradenton, Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, New Port Richey, Largo, and many other glorious locations along the shores of West Central Florida in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

Your fishing adventure will be done on Capt. Wayne’s pride and joy, the beautiful 23ft HydraSport Baybolt. She is a bay boat equipped with a custom tower for spotting fish. She’s wide-bodied, very stable, and specially designed to tackle the waters of Tampa Bay. She can accommodate up to 4 guests, and on board you’ll find dual bait wells, a shaded t-top, and all the latest navigational and safety gear, including fishfinder, GPS, and life vests for little ones. Her luxurious cushioned seating and decks make her a comfortable and safe platform from which to enjoy your adventure.

 

We offer morning and afternoon trips ranging from 4-6 hours in length and cover the inshore and nearshores of the Tampa Bay area. Each trip includes rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and a fishing license. You will keep your catch and Captain Wayne will clean and fillet it for you.  He will even take you to the local waterfront restaurant where they will prepare your catch for dinner.

 

On our nearshore trips, you will be traveling up to 4 miles out to target species such as Cobia, Grouper and King Mackerel.  If staying closer to shore is more your speed, our inshore trips will give you the chance to hook species such as Redfish, Spotted Seatrout and Snook.   Or are you more interested in doing battle with the famous Florida Silver King – the Tarpon?  Captain Wayne knows all the hottest spots, and the best techniques to help your hook this acrobatic fighter.

 

Hey Jude Fishing Charters is a family friendly charter service and welcomes anglers of all ages and skill level.  So, grab your friends and family, your sense of adventure, your camera, and come join us to start making lifetime memories today.
