Check at this site for charter boats. Click on commercial charters.


The larger party boats will be cheaper, but is not really for serious angling. You will still catch fish and it will be fun, but for serious fishing you will need a charter boat. These are out of Clearwater Beach just to the North of Indian Shores. To the South, look up Hubbards Marina. They also have fishing boats there also, they are right between Madeira Beach and Treasure Island.

To answer your second question, the beach at Indian Shores does NOT have a lot of seaweed. It is lovely.

We highly recommend Capt. Dane Karcher in Johns Pass. He is located at the end of the pier area. His number is 727-647-6919. My husband and I went with another couple for a half day trip when we were there in April. He is a great guy, even cooked our fish for us! We will definitely go with him again when we return (hopefully in 1 year!) I think he has two different boats. The one we took was a larger boat that had a restroom (very handy!). We were allowed to bring beverages on board as well as snacks. We went out for about 4 hours. We caught several fish and had a great time!
