Clearwater Beach Fishing Charters
Clearwater Beach, Florida is home to some of the best fishing available anywhere. Clearwater is home to more calm sea days – which means excellent fishing more often. West Florida also offers the best grouper fishing, second to none. While there is an abundance of fishing available, you still have to know where to go to be on the fish. That is where Captain Bill of the Snoopy II becomes your new best friend.
Captain Bill Moran has been a professional angler for over 24 years and has run the Snoopy Charters since 1984. He knows where the fish are and takes you there. He knows fishing can be seasonal. For instance, you will not find barracuda fishing in winter. However, he will take you to the best places for grouper and snapper.
If you only have a few hours to fish, do not despair. Captain Bill offers 4, 6, and 8-hour trips on the Snoopy II. A 4-hour shark-fishing trip is also available from June through September. Fishing hours are flexible, but the hours listed are the best times to fish. Otherwise, you may not find as many fish or the marine traffic will inhibit fishing.
