Capt Jojo's Fishing – 24' T-craft

Do you fancy exploring the bountiful waters of Ruskin, Florida with a captain who knows them as well as the back of his own hand? Then look no further than Captain Jojo’s Fishing Company!

Captain Joseph Brandenburg is a sixth generation Floridian and third generation captain who knows the secret to reeling in this area’s hottest species — he’s so positive about his ability to land you a great catch that he even has a “No Fish, No Pay!” policy! He loves nothing more than helping his guests reel in a Redfish or Snook, as well as bringing families together to enjoy everything that these waters and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Capt. Jojo will happily take you to the best locations to get on fish, travelling anywhere from the famous Floridian flats to local wrecks, reefs, and even lakes. His 24’ T-craft bay boat, fitted with the finest navigational equipment as well as all necessary safety features, is the perfect vessel for the job! Capt. Jojo believes that everyone should be able to experience the joys of fishing, and accepts children of all ages onboard, with lifejackets provided. His boat is also wheelchair-accessible.

No matter where you want to fish, or whether you want to reel in a Cobia, Blacktip Shark, or Tarpon, Capt. Jojo has you covered! If you’re just starting out, he’ll help you reel in an impressive catch that is bound to impress your family and friends. If you’re a more experienced angler and fancy trying something a bit unusual, how about spearfishing? Your captain will provide you and up to two friends with all the necessary equipment.

Your trip includes top-of-the-line Penn and Shimano rods and reels. Are you a keen fly fisher? Capt. Jojo would love to have you onboard — just make sure your bring your favourite equipment with you. Live bait is included, but let your captain know if you’d prefer to catch it during your trip. All that’s left is for you to book a trip with Captain Jojo’s Fishing Company and get ready to reel ‘em in!
