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.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 34’ Calypso boat, well equipped for a fun charter trip. It was recently restored and features a GPS and fishfinder, as well as ample storage for live bait and the full range of necessary first aid equipment. Powered by twin 4-stroke Suzuki 250 HP engines, the boat can reach the fishing spots in no time, 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.

The offshore trips are Capt. Keith’s specialty, and benefit greatly from his experience as a scuba 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, 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!
