Glo#1 Fishing Charters Captain Juan Herndon

From the beaches to the flats, Glo#1 Fishing Charters will show you the best of Tampa Bay’s inshore fishing. Home to a range of beautiful, delicious, and exciting fish, you can expect a fun-filled and productive day aboard with Captain Juan Herndon. He’s always loved helping other people and teaching them how to land that dream catch. Now, doing it as a living, he gets a rush out of seeing people’s smile when they reel in a big one.

These shallow waters can be difficult to navigate. Not when you have a 21’ Carolina Skiff, though. This light vessel will stay afloat in pretty much any body of water. Powered by a 150 HP Mercury engine, you’ll speed off along the bay, before the wireless trolling motor helps you steer in the skinny waters. She comes fitted with all the necessary safety equipment, including an EPIRB, and the captain is fully CPR-trained, for that extra peace of mind.

When out on the fish, try bottom dropping, popping the tops, or trolling while you drift along. With the latest Penn rods and reels, you’ll have the best chance of hooking some of these tough-fighting species aboard. Battle it out with the notorious Snook, along with Redfish, and Seatrout. While you’ll also go after a range of tasty fish to fill up your fridge. Take home Sheepshead, Tripletail, Snapper, and Mackerel, among many more.

At the end of your trip, Captain Juan will clean and prepare your catch for you to take home for a delicious dinner, and beyond! With water provided and your license taken care of, all that’s left for you to do is bring some snacks and drinks aboard and get ready for a productive day with Glo#1 Fishing Charters. An incredible day’s inshore fishing in stunning surroundings awaits!

A fisherman for most of his life, Captain Juan always enjoyed fishing with other people and sharing his tips and expertise with others. The natural next step was to become a captain. He did so in 2016 and still gets a thrill every time he's out on the water, especially when seeing people catch their first fish thanks to his help. The most rewarding thing, for him, is seeing other people catch their daily limit or their dream, big catch.
