O’Neill’s Marina Fishing Charters
O’Neill’s Marina has been around for over 50 years. They are a full service marina offering bait and tackle store, fuel, boat ramp, dry and wet boat storage and powered lifts. Spanish Sardine Fishing Charters is proud to have O’Neill’s Marina as our home base for our fishing charters in Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
O’Neill’s Marina is close to the best fishing grounds that Tampa Bay and the state of Florida has to offer. I am just a few minutes from Fort De Soto Park, Boca Ciega Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Right in front of our marina we have Indian Key also known as Bird Key. This is one of the Mangrove Island which comprise the Pinellas National Wildlife Refuge. The other islands or keys are Tarpon Key, Little Bird Key, Mule Key, Jackass key, Listen Key and Whale Island. The one key that’s closest for O’Neill’s Marina Fishing Charters that produces the most fish is Tarpon Key. Tarpon key is full of Redfish, while Jackass Key holds big Trout.
Convenient to Tampa Bay Area
A big advantage of booking your charter fishing trip through O’Neill’s Marina is location. Because we are conveniently located in south St. Petersburg near Interstate 275, you won’t have to fight the beach traffic to board Spanish Sardine Fishing Charters. We believe you can catch more fish on the water than sitting in traffic.
