Captain Brian Charters is designed to make you a better angler. Just think of the thrill of catching your own fish on the beautiful waters of Fort Lauderdale or Biscayne Bay. It’s hard to resist a trip with a knowledgeable professional!

Younger anglers are especially welcome to join in the adventure. Captain Brian is a Bass Pro Shop’s Kids Fishing with the Pros expert. He loves guiding kids through the basics of fishing and seeing them reeling in their first ever catch. Getting kids outside can be a difficult task with all the amount of homework, TV, and videogames that they have right now. But Captain Brian Charters are so fun for children of all ages that they will want to come back for more.

You will ride with the captain to the dock or meet him there. On your day out, you will check the bite on the beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay, Flamingo, Port Everglades or Chokoloskee. Get your hands on the ‘Silver King’ Tarpon, target Snook, Redfish, and Trout. Chase Red Snapper or hook Goliath Grouper. Head to the nearshore waters for Barracuda, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Tripletail, and Shark. And the list goes on!

Captain Brian Charters will take you out aboard a 22’ tournament Pathfinder boat. Its single 250 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine will power you to the hottest grounds. There is plenty of space for up to four anglers aboard.

All trips come with all the licenses, rods, reels, and bait.

Please note that Catch Cleaning & Filleting is a service that this charter doesn’t offer. You are allowed to keep only the legal amount and size of the catch.
