Florida Fishing Charters

Capt. James Teeter Palmetto, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Offshore and Inshore fishing charters aboard the Motley Crew. Located on Florida’s West Coast, just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay.

Motley Crew Fishing Charters launches out of Regatta Point Marina in Palmetto, Florida. We’ll cruise the Manatee River to the plentiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. On our way we’re sure to see the best of Florida’s nature, including dolphins, wild birds, and a variety of fish. Your group of six will be part of the Motley Crew for six hours of fantastic fishing!

Captain Jim Teeter is at the helm of the 36ft Al Dhaen Center Console; powered by twin 250HP Yamaha outboard engines. There’s a large T-top that gives shade from the sun, as well as full Furuno electronics, outriggers, GPS Satellite, and Auto Pilot/Radar. Onboard is a full toilet and sink for your comfort. This is a great vessel for fishing and perfect for kids and adults of all ages. With plenty of seating and room to cast, we look forward to having you apart of the Motley Crew!

When fishing with Motley Crew Fishing Charters, you have the option of inshore fishing, which runs 3-9 miles from the coast. Here we target local reefs and hard bottom ledges. You’ll be able to target Grouper, Snapper, Mackerel, Flounder, Hogfish, Jack Crevalle, just to name a few. Or we can head into Federal waters some 15-25 miles into the Gulf. While offshore we’re able to target the bigger species of fish such as Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and more! Whether you choose inshore or offshore, we’ve got your fishing license covered, and all the best rods, bait, tackle, and preparing your catch.

You’ll want to bring any food or drinks for the day. We also recommend a plastic bag that you can seal your personal items in. The Captain has plenty of room to store these items and we’ll make sure to keep them safe and dry during the trip. Don’t forget sunblock, sunglasses and hat or visor from the hot Florida sun. Ask Captain Jim if you’re unsure of what to bring.

Get ready for a great day of Florida fishing fun with Motley Crew Fishing Charters. Captain Jim is looking forward to guiding your crew to a fun, safe, and successful day of fishing. We’re on the water 12-months of the year, book your trip today and let’s go fishing!
