Poseidon Fishing – Bradenton

Get ready to explore the productive waters on Florida’s western coast with Poseidon Fishing Charters! You’ll head out from Bradenton with a knowledgeable captain. Whether you’re hoping to land that trophy catch or just want to fill up the cooler, this is the charter for you!

Your ride for the day is a 26’ Crevalle bay boat, perfect for 6 anglers who all want to fish at the same time. She’s decked out with 3 livewells for super fresh bait, ample seating and cushions, and a small toilet inside the console. The captain fishes from the flybridge so you’ll essentially have the boat to yourself!

You’ll have your pick of legendary inshore and offshore fish. Stay in shallower water and you’re bound to be hooking Tripletail, Redfish, Snook, Snapper, and Sheepshead all day long. Offshore fishing fanatics will have their needs covered too! Plenty of Mahi Mahi, Grouper, King Mackerel, and Blackfin Tuna make for a day of rod-bending action.

The captain provides all of your gear and takes care of fishing licenses too. There are soft drinks and light snacks on all of his trips and on full day trips lunch is also provided. At the end of the day, he’s happy to clean and fillet any keepers and share some of his secret recipes for you to try out once you get home.

Hop aboard Poseidon Fishing Charters and find out what Florida fishing is all about!
