About the Captain

Brad Buczko
Marco Island, Florida, United States
Member since April 2015
I grew up on Marco Island and spent all my free time fishing the back country near Marco Island and the surrounding 10,000 islands. I am a full time Firefighter and Guide on my days off i spend multiple days a week on the water so i am always familiar with where the fish are and how we are going to catch them.

We had a great time with Water Time Inshore Fishing and Captain Brad. He was very attentive and good with the three kids. We caught a lot of fish and had great weather. Captain Brad knows the area very well and one of the reasons why we chose him was because of his experience with fishing the Marco Island/Naples area his entire life. Kids can’t stop talking about the trip and the fun they had with Captain Brad. We will definitely go out again with Water Time Inshore Fishing.

My 8 yr old son and I went out on a half day trip with Captain Brad over the March Break. He took us out to a wreck two miles from shore near Marco Island (17 ft of water). There we immediately hooked into a wide variety of fish on nearly every cast (spanish mackeral, sugar trout, blue runners, catfish, bluefish, jacks, lady fish etc). Action was fast and furious and perfect for my son who had never hooked a salt water fish before. Brad was very accommodating and professional; the whole experience was excellent. I would certainly recommend this trip for anyone hoping to catch a slew of fish!
