Tiger's Den Charters

Tiger’s Den Charters and Captain Donny Duke brings his 23 years of Venice fishing experience to provide you with the trip of a lifetime.  Whether you want to catch and release Bull Reds till your arms give out or fill your ice chest with fillets, Capt Donny looks forward to giving you a history lesson and guided tour through his beloved marsh!
On the smoothest riding bay boat around, the 26’ BlackJack 256 paired with a Mercury 350 will comfortably fish up to 5 guests and get you there quickly.
Tiger’s Den Charters emphasizes having a great time over catching “limits” of fish and specializes in taking extra care of children, elderly, and those with special needs. Never fished before? No problem… Professional Bass fisherman? Bring it on…
We also offer the cleanest and nicest lodging in the area with the Tiger’s Den and Tiger’s Den Too houseboats in Cypress Cove Marina.  Simply wake up and step on the boat from the front deck!
Tiger’s Den Charters provides all rods and reels, bait and tackle, safety equipment, life jackets… just bring your snacks and drinks as well as a fishing license and let Capt Donny take care of the rest.
