Blue Collar Fishing Charters invites you for the most satisfying and joyful fishing experience in Ruskin, Florida. If you want to spend the day fishing, not searching for the fish, then Captain Donald Harris is your guy! He’s an army veteran who spent his life on the waters of Tampa Bay and his main mission is to provide you with a unique adventure you’ll remember for years to come.
He welcomes anglers off all ages and interests on his boat, a 22’ Kenner center console. It comes with a 150 HP Mercury, second station tower for sightfishing, top-notch live well system, ice-chest, wireless trolling motor, and even snorkeling equipment. This beauty can carry up to 4 anglers in full comfort.
The captain can pick you up in the morning and take you exploring the inshore waters, and the main destination is entirely up to you. Blue Collar Fishing Charters won’t just take you fishing, they’ll teach you how to fish. You’ll be chasing Snook, Redfish, Trout, Snapper, and whatever else you run into. The charter is very flexible - you can also combine fishing with Dolphin and Manatee watching, sunset cruises, snorkeling, and island tours.
A first mate will be there to help you on some trips (keep in mind that he work for tips, and 20% of the total charter price is customary). This charter will include top-end tackle, lures, live bait, and bottled water.
If you have kids, make sure to bring them along because the captain loves having them on board and teaching them about the beauty of fishing. Just let him know you’re bringing them - he’ll tailor the trip to their needs and go into smoother waters.
The captain will do everything he can to put a smile on his customer’s face - he’s not just a captain, he’s also an entertainer and a teacher!
