Slobby Joe Charters – Anna Maria

Spend a fun and unforgettable day with Slobby Joe Charters in Anna Maria Island! You can fish the flats and backcountry of Tampa Bay or go to inshore waters of the Gulf. Either way, you can be sure that Captain Joe Burruezo will find the best fishing spots for you. As he always has a trick or two up his sleeve, he’ll find a way to make every fishing day successful.

Your adventure will take place on a 23’ Ranger bay boat which can easily navigate through shallow waters. She’s powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine and a super quiet trolling motor. The boat accommodates up to 6 guests, so be sure to bring your family or fishing buddies along. She’s also equipped with navigational electronics, safety gear, and a live bait tank.

Your main targets will be Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Mangrove Snapper, and many more. If your goal is to hook huge Tarpon or Snook, the best time to try it is between May and August. Fishing spots and techniques will differ depending on your goal for the day. Do you want to catch any specific species or just a lot of any fish type? Are you more interested in something that will become a very tasty meal or something that will give a great fight? Just ask Capt. Joe!

When it comes to your fishing license, fishing equipment, bait, and fish cleaning – Slobby Joe Charters got you covered! Everything is included in the price, you just need to bring some snacks and drinks.

There’s one thing you should be aware of – Capt. Joe’s fishing enthusiasm is contagious. After you spend a day on the water with him, you’ll probably start planning your next fishing trip.

Fishing has always been my passion! I grew up in Tampa Bay and have fished here all my life. I can't wait to show you the waters I've grown to love. I prefer light tackle fishing and shallow water sight fishing. From time to time I target Mackerel, Cobia, and Tarpon, but my main targets are Snook and Redfish.
