Capt. Dylan runs trips out of Bradenton aboard a 24’ Carolina. These waters are known for Snook and Redfish and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're trolling or bottom fishing. With years of experience, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
