At Seminole Wind Charters & Cruises we specialize in offshore fishing for Grouper, Red Snapper, Amberjack, Kingfish, Cobia, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, Mangrove Snapper, Tarpon, Sharks and many other species. Your West Coast Florida Fishing Charter will be one for the memory books when you book with Seminole Wind Charters and Captain Steve Cottle.

The Gulf of Mexico has more Grouper harvested than any other area in Florida. This is due to the abundance of artificial reefs, natural rock structures, and ledges. In addition, there are numerous ship wrecks offshore which create the perfect habitat for all reef species such as Grouper, Amberjack, Snapper, Spanish Mackerel and many others.

When fishing out of Redington Shores, we also have access to pelagic & migratory species like Kingfish. From April through May Kingfish migrate through our area headed North to the cooler and deeper waters; September through October the Kingfish migrate back through our area headed South to the warmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Southern Atlantic.

If you’re visitng the Tampa, St. Pete, or Redington Shores area from May through July: Tarpon from all of the eastern Gulf of Mexico gather in and around Tampa Bay and Egmont Key. Tampa Bay and Boca Ciega Bay is loaded with small pass crabs during the summer months. This is one of the reasons that Tampa Bay and Boca Ciega Bay can sustain thousands of Tarpon during the peek month. The tarpon use this migration of the pass crabs as an easy way to feed and gain nutrition for their own migration.

The Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Black Fin Tuna are here most of the time in the blue water offshore so there’s GREAT FISHING year-round. No matter what time of year you’re fishing from the Tampa area, we’ve got you covered!

Bring your group of six for a great day of fishing with Seminole Wind Charters and Captain Steve. Everything is included in the trip cost – just bring any snacks or drinks for the day and we’ll take care of the rest! See you on the water!

The Tarpon are here from late April through mid to late July. They are migrator a speices. The best time to fish for them is when we have a Full Moon or New Moon known as spring or hill tide days. Because when we have the big tide's it washes the crab's and bait fish out of the bay. If you have never fought a Tarpon it is a experience of life time. My Biggest is 178 lb.

3/4 Day Trip – Reef & Structure
We had a great time out on the water with Steve and mate Kaleb. They were very hospitable and we felt we were in good hands. The boat is well kept and comfortable, and we had a great day with them! Highly recommend!

Half Day Trip – Offshore (PM)
My boys and I had a fantastic time with these guys at the helm! We didn’t catch quite as many as we had hoped for but that certainly was not due to a lack of effort on the part of the captain and his mate. They worked like crazy to get as many fish on the boat as they could and treated us like valued customers! Book with Seminole Wind! You will not be sorry.
