Ana Banana Fishing Company
One of our top picks in Ruskin. The Ana Banana Fishing Company is a family business that has been putting smiles on all of their guests’ faces for the past 15 years since it was established in Ruckin, Florida. The friendly and outgoing Captain Joel has been fishing for most of his life in the Gulf waters and is able to take you on a fishing trip of your dreams.
The lovely yellow Ana Banana boat is a 24 foot Hanson built in 2015 which accommodates up to 6 guests. It is very spacious with a beam 10 feet wide, which gives everyone onboard plenty of space. The boat has a powerful Yamaha engine of 200 HP, with a cruising speed of 45 knots. The Lowrance electronics will put you on the best fishing spots using a fishfinder, and you will be safe no matter where you go as it has a GPS, a radar and a VHF radio for communication with the Coast Guard. This attractive boat has a 2 seated tower with dual steering and dual controls, as well as a toilet in the center console - an essential when taking your kids out for a long time.
Since you will be fishing in the beautiful and clear warm waters of Florida, you will likely be catching lots of different species. In the extensive area of the Gulf of Mexico you can catch Redfish, Trout,Flounder, and Tarpon on the inshore trips. If you decide to take a longer trip and venture further out on a nearshore trip you can catch Black Drum, Snapper, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, and even some mighty Sharks.
At Ana Banana Fishing Company, the fishing technique mostly used is light spinning tackle, but heavy tackle is also available. Specialist techniques such as Bowfishing, Spearfishing, and Flounder Gigging can also be arranged with this accommodating captain. Fishing will mostly be done with very fresh live bait caught on the day including Sardines, Mullet and Blue Runners. Captain Joel will also happily clean, fillet and cook your catch for you at the end of the trip.

Both the Capt. Brian and the ship mate(son )was awesome. Very good with helping our 2 young kids. We are from Ohio so we had to learn not to set the “hook” to catch these fish! Our daughter was a shark slayer!! The next day Capt. Joel came to spin our filets at hooks so they could get them up for us to eat. He was awesome too!! Thanks to you all for great memory with our kids!
