Coastal Bound Charters

Here at Coastal Bound Charters, the crew’s goal is to put you on fish and help you make amazing memories on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Captain Timothy Esgro is doing charters out of Siesta Key, St. Petersburg, and Anna Maria Island. He’ll meet you in Bradenton and take you on a fun-packed trip you won’t soon forget. Book any day that suits you and embark on your next fishing adventure in Florida!

Your trip takes place on a 24’ Blazer bay boat. The boat rides fairly comfortably, fits up to 5 anglers and it uses GPS and fishfinder technology to keep you on the course all the time. The boat also has a wireless trolling motor, two livewells, snorkeling gear, stereo, and an ice-box. (if you have more than 3 people in your group, it will be $50 extra per person.)

Captain Timothy fishes for a variety of species including but not limited to Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Trout, Tripletail, Tarpon, and many more! To attract them, you’ll be fishing both on light and heavy tackle. The fish you catch is yours to keep but you’re free to release it back into the water if you prefer to. Also, kids are more than welcome to come on the trip.

The captain supplies all the fishing equipment, live bait, lures, drinks, as well as licenses. If you decide to keep your catch, the captain will clean and fillet it for you at no extra cost. Bring any food you like, arrive on time, and get ready for a great time on the water.

Join Coastal Bound Charters and make memories fishing!

I have been fishing and traveling all around florida since I was young and have been able to experience many of the unique things florida has to offer. Which makes me very knowledgeable about floridas wildlife, wilderness, and animals. There are many things the state has to offer and I am more then happy to share my love for the state and wildlife with you! I run fun and exciting fishing trips out of Bradenton, Anna Maria, and St. Pete Florida. Come aboard and discover the area's inshore, nearshore, and backcountry waters, as well as rivers and flats, all beautiful and full of fish.
