If you are looking for a great fishing trip, that combines beautiful scenery with excellent fishing, then Venice Island Fishing Charters is for you. With over 25 years of experience, Captain Mike Patterson will have you on the fish and making memories in no time.
You’ll be checking the bite off the coast of Venice aboard a 28’ Sea Cat. She was built in 1997 and fully rejuvenated in 2014 – the amenities are up-to-date for your comfort. You can bring 5 of your fishing buddies with you on this saltwater excursion.
Captain Mike is very family friendly. He was introduced to fishing at a young age and is grateful for that early experience. He knows the importance of passing on his knowledge to the younger generation, so does not have a minimum age requirement on board - if the parents are happy, he is happy. He loves seeing children catch their first fish, and hopes to instill in them the love of fishing that his dad gave him many years ago.
Fish on the menu include Snook, Redfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum and many more. The main targets are the various Snapper and Grouper species of the area, but who knows what’ll take the bait.
His 4-hour trips are perfect for kids. This is a great introduction to fishing for them. Kids can even get involved with helping catch the live bait, by casting nets for shrimp. Just let Capt. Mike know before the trip if you would like to help with catching live bait, otherwise he will prepare it for you before the trip begins.
All that’s left to do is grab your snacks, sunscreen, and an ice cooler to take your catch home. Capt. Mike will happily fillet your fish for you, so all you need to decide is how you will cook it. Venice Island Fishing Charters cannot wait to see you and start making some awesome fishing memories together!
