Florida Freshwater Fishing Adventure

Florida has a lot of fish with your name on it, so let Captain Manny help you catch em and reel them up! With him at the helm you’ll benefit from years of local knowledge and experience.

Captain Manny specializes in catching Largemouth bass and Peacock Bass on the canals and lake systems in Broward county. Occasionally hook onto a tarpon, snook, snake head, and several other species. It’s always a surprise when your fishing with Manny.

Your fishing adventure will take place aboard the Nitro which can fit up to 3 people. This vessel is equipped with a fighting chair and a ice box. Rods, reels, and tackle are ready for you as well. Live bait is INCLUDED at the expense of the captain so please take this in to consideration when tipping your captain.

Children 9 years or younger can be accommodated with prior notice for a required child size life vest availability.

Among items to bring consider snacks and water ( I have a small color to bring on the trip with ice cold water) Remember to have appropriate clothing and don’t forget sunblock and sunglasses of course come in handy anywhere in the sunshine. freshwater fishing licenses on the Go Outdoors Florida website. A standard annual resident license costs $17, while for non-resident $27

Please feel free to contact Captain Manny directly through the message on the app for any questions or inquiries.
