  • review rating 5  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!

    review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  Zach was amazing! He kept us on fish the whole 4 hours we were out. He kept our 7 year old entertained and bait on our hook. We caught red, trout, snook, catfish and a stingray! He cleaned our fish (red/trout) and referred us to a great restaurant that cooked it for us. Delicious! We will definitely be back, thank you Zach

    review rating 5  First class charter! Captain Zach was a great guide with lots of knowledge and had no trouble getting us on some good fish. Really down to earth and was a lot of fun to fish with. Regardless of your fishing level, he will help and do anything to make sure you get a fish and have some fun. If you are looking for a great time on the water catching fish, give White Pearl Charter a call. Will definitely be a repeat customer! Thanks sir.

  • 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.

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!
