Based out of St. Petersburg, FL, Native Sportfishing is a premium guide service offering some of the best Tampa Bay fishing charters in Florida. Fishing in Tampa Bay offers world class opportunities that anglers from all around the globe visit to take part of. We welcome you to bring your friends and family along to fish with us for an experience that will last a lifetime. 

 

Ben Boyle will be your captain as you venture out to enjoy some Tampa fishing. A fully licensed and professional captain, Capt. Ben knows the waterways of St. Petersburg very intimately. He grew up fishing in St. Petersburg and developed such a strong passion for the sport over the years, that he decided to start running charters so he could share that passion with other enthusiastic anglers. He will be more than happy to share all of his knowledge with you to help you see great success on fishing trips with him. 

 

Your west Florida fishing trip with Capt. Ben will begin in St. Petersburg and go on to explore the nearby waters of Tampa, Clearwater, Gulfport, Tierra Verde, St. Pete Beach, Bradenton, Largo, Pinellas Park, and many other exciting locations in the Tampa Bay area. 

 

Capt. Ben has a stunning 25ft Chawk center console boat that is absolutely perfect for fishing charters in Tampa. She is powered by a 250hp Yamaha SHO engine and can take out up to 6 anglers at a time. She comes with all the proper fish finding, navigational, and safety features. A trolling motor can be found on board to help sneak up on particularly anxious fish. She is wheelchair accessible and a cooler on deck will help keep your drinks and snacks cold. 

 

We offer full day, half day, and ¾ day fishing trips covering the inshore and nearshore fishing grounds of St. Petersburg. All of your trips with us will include rods, reels, lures, bait, and a fishing license. Fly fishing equipment can be provided, just let Capt. Ben know before the trip, so he can have that set up for you. A fish cleaning service will also be included at the end of each trip at no extra charge. 

 

Capt. Ben specializes in chasing Tarpon, aka the “Silver King”. He can also get you up close with Snappers, Kingfish, Black Drum, Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Grouper, Sharks, and many other species that swim the Tampa Bay area. 

 

No two trips with Native Sportfishing are alike. We will customize each trip that will cater to your skill level and desires. Book a trip with us today for the Florida fishing charter trip of a lifetime!
