Bait House Charters
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 twin 392 HP Suzuki engines 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.

We had three generations of our family on a half-day, off-shore trip with Brad and Jason. They were extremely accomodating and had great advice - those who listened were rewarded with an amazing number of grouper. We stopped at three locations and he put us on the fish every time. As soon as the lines went in the water we started catching fish. My dad, who has been out on several charters, said this was by far the best he has every done. I would recommend this charter very highly!

Had a good time. Friendly plenty of bait and good
equipment. Thought boat had a head but it does not. That is the only reason I did not give a 5 star.

Had a great time although fishing was hampered by changing weather conditions. Captain Brad did a great job of finding places to fish while avoiding storms. He ensured we had a catch!
