Seafood Charters 34' Boat- Deep Sea

Join Seafood Charters for the unique opportunity to enjoy the excitement of recreational fishing from the angle of a commercial fisherman. Captain Keith McGlade runs trips out of Bradenton Beach, with a special focus on offshore and deep-sea fishing.

Starting out in 2007 as a commercial fisherman, Capt. Keith expanded his career on the water to charter fishing in 2011. As well as running charters, he still fishes commercially for stone crab and mullet in season.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 34’ Calypso boat, well equipped for a fun charter trip. It was recently restored and features a VMS, GPS, a spot-lock trolling motor, and dual fishfinders, as well as ample storage for live bait and the full range of necessary first aid equipment. The boat is powered by twin 250 HP Suzuki four-stroke engines, so you can make the most of your time on the water.

All the fishing tackle, bait, and lures you will need during your trip are included in the price of the charter. Fishing licenses will also be supplied for everyone on board. Capt. Keith will clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day, so you can take it home straight to the table.

Offshore trips are Capt. Keith’s specialty, and benefit greatly from his experience spearfishing commercially as a scuba diver and free diver. Having spent countless hours exploring the ledges, reefs, and wrecks that he fishes, Capt. Keith has superior knowledge of what lies beneath him every time he drops his line. These trips could involve fishing for a variety of species including Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Cobia, and Spanish Mackerel, depending on the season and conditions.

Explore some of the most productive waters with Seafood Charters and have a memorable fishing adventure!
