Our trip with Capt Zach for my husbands birthday was amazing! We enjoyed cruising around on the boat as much as the actual fishing. The boat is clean and has all the best gadgets on it. He had plenty of bait and put us on fish immediately. He cleaned and bagged all the fish we were allowed to keep and even recommended a local spot-Sea Critters- to have it cooked up so we could enjoy it as our hotel room didn’t have a kitchen. I highly recommend this charter and captain. My husband and I cannot wait to book with him next year.
My wife and I were visiting Florida for a long weekend for my birthday. We went out with Capt Zach and had a great time. The red tide has left and the fish were biting. We took our catch, that he cleaned for us, to a local restaurant on the water he recommended and they cooked it for us. Nothing like fresh fish. We will be back and booking with Capt Zach.

Captain Zack is by far one of the best Charters I have been on! He has a great personality and very professional. He goes above and beyond to keep his customers happy! I highly recommend him and we will be back to do it again!
We went out with Zach a week ago and had an awesome experience. He is extremely knowledgeable about fishing and worked hard to put us on fish and to keep us baited and fishing, all the while remaining very upbeat and relaxed. Zach was so patient and positive with our 8 year old son, and he helped make his 8th birthday one to remember. We HIGHLY recommend fishing with Zach, just don't book him on the day that we want to go out with him next time, thanks.

If you get a chance to go out with Zack, you will not regret it! We were in town for a work conference for my husband and decided to stay an extra day to fish. Even though it was the wrong time of year for some of the species we wanted, Zack was still able to get us on some great fish and give us an awesome experience. Obviously his fishing skills are spot on but we also loved chatting with him and learning so much about the local ecosystem. We fish quite a bit in Texas but Zack can cater to whatever your skill level is. We are already planning a trip next year to hook up with some tarpon!
Zack is very personable with lots of great knowledge. He has a super clean boat and nice equipment. We had a great time and would highly recommend White Pearl Fishing.

Capt. Zack was fantastic! We’ve been coming to St. Pete Beach for almost 50 years and now I wanted to take my family on a private charter. He has a beautiful boat too with all the modern gear and remote automation. We booked a 4 hour trip and caught our fill of Snapper pretty quickly (which he perfectly filleted for us back at the dock). That gave us time to go out for some sport fishing and he found a spot full of Jack fish. He told us how much fun they were to hook and fight, and he sure was right! My wife and kids had a blast hooking into these. He was also very attentive and knowledgeable, giving us great tips and facts as we fished. He will provide as much or little assistance as you want, which was a great balance. We will definitely be connecting with Capt. Zack and the White Pearl when we’re down here again. Thanks Capt. Zack!
Capt. Zach was extremely knowledgeable of all of local species of fish and how to reel the big ones in. Having fished salt water for a good amount of years, it was great to be on his boat! We booked at 4 hour tour and he gave us an extra 30-45 minutes to fish for some big snook! He was very prepared with all types of bait for all types of fish! My family and I had a great time and we reeled in a good amount of fish. Capt. Zach made us feel like family which made the day more enjoyable. I would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely be a repeat customer. Thanks Sir!

I’m an avid fisherman myself from Long Island and was looking for my first tarpon and snook. Captain Zach is extremely knowledgeable and put us on the fish for two days and uses the best gear and tackle to give you the best shot at landing some monster fish. Will definitely be a repeat client.
Had a great time fishing with Captain Zack. He was very knowledgeable and put us on some nice fish including a giant snook that my 14 year-old son caught. Would definitely book with him again!
