St. Pete Beach Fishing Charters

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!

My girlfriend and I had a great day with Captain Zach,he took us to where the Tarpon were we did not land one but man we were oh so close thanks to a huge hammerhead who had other ideas and decided to crash our party!!! Captain Zach and his operation first class all the way could not have asked for a better guide!!! Can't wait to give it another shot next year if you or your family are in the area Zach and White Pearl Charters are the way to go!!!
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

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.
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!
