SKIRTCHASER CHARTERS

Capt. Frank Hutchko St. Petersburg, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

If you are ready for a rod-bending, heart pumping, day on the water, SkirtChaser Charters will not disappoint! SkirtChaser Charters provide you with the best offshore fishing experience in St. Petersburg, Florida. No charter is better equipped to deliver a trip of a lifetime! We offer a high-quality experience from the moment you step on the boat, to the time your catch is filleted. Our staff provides nothing less than the fishing trip of a lifetime, making memories that will last forever!

 

 

Guided by Captain Frank and his 20 plus years of experience with professional fishing, SkirtChaser Charters sails the waters of St. Petersburg, Tampa, Clearwater, Sarasota, and Largo, Florida. Captain Franks experience spans from New Jersey to the Bahamas. The last 9 years have been spent sharing ultimate fishing adventures with clients off the Gulf Coast.

 

Your trip takes place on the “Skirtchaser”. She is a 2016 SeaHunt Gamefish 30 that’s rigged with the latest Simrad electronics and powered by twin 300hp Yamaha motors. This combo allows us to cruise at 43 mph in comfort allowing us to get to the best fishing spots quickly. The Skirtchaser is licensed to carry 6 passengers for any charter experience. 

 

You can rest assure the “Skirtchaser” comes with all the necessary safety and navigational equipment to make your trip a success. A first Mate will be on board to help you throughout the trip and we carry snorkeling equipment in case you brought your bathing suit and want to hop in the water.

 

On our offshore adventures, we love to target Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. It all depends how far you want to go (which can be up to 90 miles offshore). Our nearshore trips, which can go out up to 25 miles, mostly targets snapper, grunts, hogfish, mackerel, and groupers, depending on what’s biting.  

Skirtchaser Charters and Captain Frank will make sure your fishing trip is nothing short of amazing. His passion is contagious, and our return anglers come back year after year to improve their skills off of our boat as well. Prior to your trip, Captain Frank will be in touch to tailor your experience, whether you desire to go after sport fish or table delicacies. Book a trip with us today and set sail on a journey you will never forget!
