Gulf Coast Fishing




Unlike most of the smaller boats in our area, Seafood Charters has the Gulf of Mexico federal permits for charter fishing beyond 9 miles.  Captain Keith has spent years SCUBA diving every offshore ledge, wreck, or reef  that we will be fishing. His knowledge of the underwater topography gives him an edge when dropping lines. Grouper, snapper, hogfish, kingfish, cobia, and Spanish mackerel are common target species.

Tampa Bay offers amazing back-water fishing, featuring miles of untouched mangrove shorelines, which provide a thriving habitat for snook, redfish, trout, flounder, and numerous other species.

5 Hour Fishing Charter- $500

All charter rates include up to 6 guests. 
Keep in mind that the boat is a 23-foot skiff.  Although 6 guests are welcome, you may be more comfortable if you choose to bring a smaller group.

Meet the Captain

Captain Keith McGlade is a US Coast Guard-licensed mariner.  He is an easy going, down to earth guy who loves his work.  A 'nature boy' from his youth, he grew up on the Gulf coast of Florida, catching and eating every edible creature from the ocean.
Not only a charter captain, he is also a commercial fisherman who harvests stone crab and mullet in season.  In addition, he is an avid SCUBA/free diver.
​Want some stone crab to go along with your fish? From October to May, Captain Keith has hundreds of stone crab traps out in the gulf. Although he likely won't  have his electric trap puller on the boat during your charter, upon request, he would be happy to 'horse in' a few traps by hand.
Our vessel is a 23-foot customized Carolina Skiff which was completely rebuilt by Captain Keith to be his ideal fish catching machine. It is powered by a quiet Suzuki 140 hp four stroke, and equipped with advanced GPS and fish finding technology, including side imaging. The skiff is stocked with all of the Coast Guard-required safety gear, as well as a PLB (personal locator beacon).
