Bait House Charters is a fishing charter based in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Join Captain Brad and travel up to 100 miles out to explore one of the best bottom fishing locations around. He will make sure to provide you with a tailored experience, regardless of whether you are a veteran angler or just getting your feet wet. If you prefer fly fishing, Captain Brad will be able to accommodate your needs.

How far you go out will vary depending on what you want to catch and how long you want to stay. Some of the fish species you can expect to encounter are Groupers, Snappers, Amberjack, Kingfish, as well as other pelagic species. Captain Brad also specializes in catching Hogfish, one of the most delicious fish out there. There is also a shark fishing package for any who would like to try their hand at hunting for Hammerheads, Bull Sharks, and others.

His boat is a 33’ Dusky center console boat. It is powered by a Yanmar diesel engine and can develop a speed of up to 38 knots. The boat is equipped with all the necessary USCG equipment and navigational equipment such as GPS and a fishfinder device. It also has two large coolers to store caught fish as well as any drinks you might decide to bring. This is a very versatile boat that can handle any sort of offshore trip, as well as get you to the action quickly.

Captain Brad will provide you with all the necessary gear and bait, and the first mate will clean and fillet any catch caught once you’re back onshore. Gratuity for the first mate of around 15-20% is expected and appreciated. Make sure to bring polarised sunglasses as well as any drinks or snacks if you like.

Outstanding Captain Brad Dunn
Dense fog was an issue but Brad and Jason didn’t let that interfere with us exceeding our expectations! We caught SO many fish, even a tripletail! By far the best charter we have ever taken! See you again next time!

There was 5 of us on a 1/2 day trip.  The weather wasn’t the best.  It started out sunny, but turned cloudy, cool and a little choppy.  Didn’t disrupt our fun.  Captain Matt and Jason were great.  We caught fish all afternoon and they only got bigger.  We ate at the Bait House restaurant and they cooked our fish for us and we still had plenty to take home.  Would highly recommend this charter service!
