Welcome to Scotty J’s Charters. We are a private charter boat company, veteran owned, and family operated, located in beautiful Gulfport, Florida. Our location gives us quick and easy access to the offshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico, or inshore to Anna Maria Island, Egmont key, or Tampa Bay. We are family friendly and encourage the beginner, young, or old to book with us. We are fully insured through Charter Lakes Insurance. In the Gulf (with-in 9 nautical miles) you will have the opportunity, depending on the season, to chase Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Gag Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Hog Fish and a variety of different sharks’ species. Depending on season and species you will either troll, drift or anchor over productive structure. If Inshore is what you want, we are just minutes from the waters of Tampa Bay. Depending on the season you will the opportunity to pursue, Mangrove snapper, Sheepshead, Grouper, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Tarpon, along with a variety of other inshore species. If you wish to fish the Iconic Sunshine Skyway Bridge, we have you covered. The waters of the Skyway Bridge are what we consider “one stop shopping”. The shipping channel waters are deep, and the edges provide a good habitat for Gag Groupers and Mangrove Snappers. At Scotty J’s we understand not everyone fishes, but they still love being on the water. We also understand it can be quite intimidating to rent a boat and just head out to an area you have never been. To help you with this we do offer none-fishing trips. Book this trip if you are interested in cruising, sightseeing, or dolphin watching. Scotty J’s does not guarantee fish; however, we do promise we will do everything possible to put you on the fish. If you have a special need or request, please do not hesitate to ask and if possible, we will gladly accommodate you. Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
