At Queen Fleet Deep Sea Fishing located at the Clearwater Marina, step aboard the Super Queen or Gulf Queen for either a half-day or full day of fishing the Gulf of Mexico. Depending on your choice of trip, expect to be out and about from 4 to 8 hours with catches including grunt, sea bass, and even grouper. Bring your own tackle, or rods are available for rent. Bait is provided, and anything caught will be kept on ice—and they'll even clean it for you at the end of the trip. Boats and crew are available for charter for large groups and special occasions. - Vickie Ferguson
