Welcome to Pocket Change Fishing Charters!

Join Captain Anthony Corcella and Pocket Change Fishing Charters for a St. Petersburg fishing trip you won’t soon forget! Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Captain Anthony is a USGC licensed Florida fishing guide who has a lifetime of experience fishing the waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Join Captain Anthony for a nearshore or flats, backcountry fishing charter. Your group of six can target Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, Snapper, Sheepshead, Cobia, Drum, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Bonito or Sharks – depending on the season.

Pocket Change Fishing Charters specialize in light tackle fishing for that adrenaline rush that can’t be beat. We cater to all skill levels, from the novice to the advanced angler.

The 24’ Carolina Skiff DLV that you’ll be fishing from is ADA compliant; and ask about special discounts for our wheelchair-bound guests. A T-top for shade from the Florida sun adds to the comfort, as well as a top-notch multimedia system! Safety features include all USCG certified equipment, including life jackets, flares, EPIRB, and fire extinguishers. Captain and Crew are also CPR-Trained with a First-Aid Kit available for any emergency.

Pocket Change Fishing Charters offers 2-to-8 hour fishing trips in St. Petersburg. Whether you want a quick trip (try the “Squeeze ya in” option) or a full day (check out the “Screaming Reel Trip”) we’ve got you covered. Captain Anthony has been fishing the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding areas for many years and knows just where to go to get you on the fish. We can go bottom fishing, jigging, spinning, trolling, fly fishing, or (our favorite) fishing with light tackle.

Your fare includes bait, ice, tackle, rod/reel, fish instruction, and fish cleaning. Your fishing license is also included as passengers are covered under Captain Anthony’s recreational charter boat license. You should bring sun block, hat, sunglasses, and light-colored clothes are suggested (layers are best for winter). Also consider bringing any food or soft drinks you would like for your trip (beer is okay, hard liquor is prohibited), deck-shoes, and any sea sick prevention pills. You are welcome to bring your own gear (2 per person max), although rods and reels are provided by Captain Anthony.

Your St. Petersburg fishing charter is just a click away! Let’s Go Fishing!

      It was a great trip. We caught plenty of fish. They were very knowledgeable and I can’t wait to go again!

    • Fantastic Day!

      Created Sarah Branston

      Captain Anthony was absolutely fantastic! We were recommended by Will and boy was he right! He was extremely knowledgeable and put us on the Tarpon! We had a blast!! He was very outgoing and polite! I will certainly be booking with them again!

    • Great Charter

      Created Charles Keezer

      We booked a last min charter and connected with Capt Doug. He was amazing! My boys, 8 and 12, caught a huge variety of fish from snook to trout to a sting Ray. It was a perfect social distancing opportunity. Thank you so much for fitting us into your schedule.

    • Enjoyable Day

      Created Jason Guerrera

      Captain Anthony knows his stuff, we caught a bunch of snook and redfish, then we went out and got snapper to bring home for dinner. He really went out of his way to make sure everyone was well taken care of.

    • Highly Recommend!

      Created Steven Kennedy

      My wife got me this trip for a Father's day gift. I must say that Chris accommodated us in more ways than most would have. Start off my vehicle was having mechanical problems right before we were to pull out and he picked my wife and I up with no hesitation. We hit some nice spots. Fun in the 🌞. Chris personality was awesome down to earth guy. Any questions we had he answered easy to talk with. I would recommend this team to anyone.

    • 4 Hr Trip

      Created Mikey

      The best the bay/gulf has to offer! We booked a charter of 4 hours with Captain Anthony and 1st mate Captain Chris. First off, having 2 captains on board that day provided I and my fiance double the local angling knowledge. We immediately hooked up on redfish, trout and lady fish. After working that area for the right amount of time, we took a ride to find some snook. It didn't take long for us to find the snook and my fiance landed a nice jumping snook for us, what a good fight for her. I figured what more could we catch now? Then after seeing a huge dolphin try to chase our released snook which got away just fine, I turn around to see my fiance's rod bent way over! Low and behold a nice strong black drum is putting a working her rod. She lands a beauty of a black drum thanks to Captain Anthony's fine reels, rods, line, terminal tackle, bait and of course, her fine angling skills. We we're back at the dock after taking a short ride. Chris filleted the trout and black drum we kept for dinner, all others released to fight another day. We all shared in great conversations ranging from laughter to ecology and everything in between while catching fish. I definitely recommend Pocket Change Charters and we had such a good time, we are going back next week for round 2 for hogfish snapper and other bottom fish.

    • Awesome Day

      Created Bruce Manton

      Fished with Captain Doug Hall today, n had an awesome day. The man is the grouper king. Taught me how to tie rigs, what bottom to look for, and we caught more then 30 grouper. Will recommend him to all my friends. Anxious for our next trip. Thanks Capt

    • Had a blast!

      Created Will Kielblock

      My wife, Father-in-law and myself went out with Capt. Anthony on 3-1-2020 and let me tell you he never disappoints. We had a blast and caught several wonderful fish. His knowledge of the water is above the rest. If your looking to book a fishing charter it has to be with Pocket Change!

    • Love these trips!

      Created Amanda Lees

      How fun! I’ve used all three Captains on different trips and always have fish to eat for a few days after. The entertainment is something I’ve never had before and always found myself smiling and laughing. Very friendly and helpful with everything. Can’t wait to go on my next trip!
