  • review rating 5  Went out with Zach today. Our scheduled charter was at 1 pm, he texted and said that a front was coming in and when he went out to catch bait, he checked a couple of spots and the fish were on fire. He recommended we head out earlier if we wanted. We hit the water around 10 am. We nailed the spanish mackerel and kings!! Capt. Zach is the real deal, he knows how to put you on fish and he is a very personable and genuine guy. He tailors the trip to your skills and does whatever it takes to provide you with a great experience. We'll be back next year, thanks Zach!

    review rating 5  We had a great day yesterday fishing with Captain Zack. Zack had us working lots of different spots and we caught a good variety of fish. The Redfish Zack suggested we cook blackened has been delicious. Zack's boat was clean and comfortable and you know he takes great pride in his work. Check out Zack and his White Pearl Fishing Charter. You will have a great time. Thanks Zack.

  • review rating 5  Just finished the day out on the water with Capt. Zack. Great guy and you can tell by his enthusiasm he is passionate about fishing. Boat and gear was great. We fished in colder temps and the bite was slow for other boats, But on Zack's recommendations we went later in the day and all three of us hooked up multiple times. He cleaned the fish and we just cooked them up and they were delicious. I highly recommend White Pearl if you are coming to fish the st. Pete's area.

    review rating 5  HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! My boyfriend and I did lots of looking at different charter fishing, We booked White Pearl Fishing Charters. We booked a 4 hour trip and it was exactly what we were hoping for. He really knew what he was doing and really worked to put us on the fish! We had an amazing time! We would definitely go again! He was so kind to clean our fish and recommend a place to have it cooked at! Delicious! Thanks so much again!

  • review rating 5  HIGHLY RECOMMEND! After doing A LOT of research, I booked White Pearl Fishing Charters for my husband and 12 and 6 year old boys' first fishing trip on the Gulf. When they returned after their 4 hour trip, they said it was phenomenal and exactly what they were hoping for. They caught a ton of fish and Captain Zach was exceptional with the kids! They had an unforgettable experience and can't wait to go again next year! My husband says Captain Zach is "the real deal". He's very friendly and down-to-earth as well as extremely knowledgeable. You can't go wrong with this Charter!

    review rating 5  Captain Zack will not let you go back to shore disappointed. He took my son and me for an afternoon of fishing. Since it's February we were just hoping for a nice day on the water, but he made sure we were able to bring dinner home to mom. My son is still talking about how he's caught his biggest fish ever! Thank you, Capt. Zack, for an amazing day.

  • review rating 5  Capt Zack put us on some great fish. His boat was clean and in great shape. We had a blast! If you’re in the St Pete’s area and want to catch some fish give him a shout.

    review rating 5  Highly recommend Capt Zach. Fishing can be tough in January with different cold fronts etc.. he put us on the fish immediately catching numerous species one after another. He was awesome with my 2 year old daughter. His boat and entire operation is first class. Capt Zach is very laid back and very personable. To top off the day he cleaned all of our fish and recommended a local place that would cook the fish for us. We took his word and dinner was amazing. Great trip great memories made with Capt ZACH. Please do yourself a favor and book with him. You won't be disappointed. Thanks again Capt ZACH.
