Charter Fish Bradenton

Charter Fish Bradenton offers a never-ending fishing adventure out of Palmetto, FL. Join Captain Andres, who’s been catching fish in the area his whole life. The thrill of catching fish is something he wants everyone to experience for themselves. You don’t need to be a passionate angler to enjoy a day on the water. Whether it’s your first time holding a rod or you already have a few trophies under your belt, you can have a great time here.

You’ll be fishing on a 23’ Aeon boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. The boat is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki outboard engine, so you can get to your fishing spot quickly and get on that bite. This bay boat is a very versatile fishing platform. Whether you’re exploring backcountry spots that are less than a foot deep or going offshore for miles, this boat will always offer a safe and reliable ride.

There’s a variety of species to target and it all depends on which trip you choose. Some of the most common catches are Redfish, Tarpon, Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Tripletail, Snook, Trout, and many more. You get to keep most of the catch and the captain will clean it for you free of charge.

All fishing licenses and equipment are included in the price. You only need to pack some food, drinks, and sun protection.

Bring your family or a group of friends. Either way, you’ll discover a new way to relax, have fun, and grab a tasty lunch. Charter Fish Bradenton awaits you!
