Filled the Boat! The Top 5 Madeira Beach Fishing Charters

Year after year, the Tampa Bay Area is heralded as one of the premier fishing destinations along the Gulf Coast.

One seaside city, in particular, is rapidly garnering a following among casual and avid anglers alike: Madeira Beach. With dozens of top-reviewed Madeira Beach fishing charters to sift through, it’s not easy finding a boat that perfectly suits your group’s size, skill level, and budget.

The good news, however, is that the finest deep-sea fishing near Tampa starts right here at TRS Inc. Many of our top-rated Madeira Beach condo rentals are within walking distance from the area’s best charters!

Ranking the Best Madeira Beach Fishing Charters

The folks here at TRS Inc. have strong relationships with several Madeira Beach fishing charters, including the boys down at Hubbard’s Marina. It wasn’t easy leaving magnificent outfits, such as Merryweather Charters and Lady Godiva. But, at the end of the day, these five charters stood tall amongst the competition. It’s worth noting that most of our staff have years of experience in these waters, so feel free to give us a call to discuss our favorite Madeira Beach fishing charters.

1. Hubbard’s Marina

Placing Hubbard’s Marina atop this list was a no-brainer, primarily because of their world-class guides, absurdly low rates, and countless trip options. Anglers can spend five hours in search of a trophy shark or two full days 100 miles offshore with their sights set on snapper, yellowtail, and hogfish. One of the many perks of choosing Hubbard’s Marina is that you can easily book online!

2. Got One Sportfishing

Got One Sportfishing is a small operation that simplifies the selection process by offering just eight unique fishing trips, ranging from near-shore fishing (a rarity) to classic Gulf of Mexico shark hunts. Each one-day excursion is ideal for anglers of all skill levels, not just those with a ton of experience under their belt. We highly recommend taking a peek at their impressive catches!

3. Bent Charters Fishing

Did you know that bananas are considered bad luck on a fishing boat? Well, the folks at Bent Charters Fishing embraced the legend by creating a logo with a banana-man with glasses, boots, and a rod, accompanied by the tagline, “No Banana Fears!” It’s a bold move, but one that seems to have worked out for Bent Charters. Guests consistently return to our fleet of Madeira Beach condos with nothing but glowing reviews.
