High Class Hooker Charters - Venice

East Venice Avenue
Venice FL, United States

High Class Hooker Charters offers light tackle fishing adventures on the beautiful waters of Venice, Florida and the surrounding waterways. If you are looking for a fun day of fishing with an experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly guide, then this is the guide service for you. It’s great fun for anglers of all skill levels and abilities.

Come aboard Captain Camille’s 17’ Andros Abaco Skiff, an amazing shallow water fishing platform, and let the adventure begin. It’s hard to beat this vessel when it comes to navigating shallow waters in search of fish. Add to that a Minn Kota wireless trolling motor for the ones that are easily spooked, and you’ve got yourself a proper fishing machine.

Some of the species commonly caught in these fishing grounds include Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Tarpon (seasonal), Black Drum, Sheepshead, Snapper, and more. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned angler, your Capt. Camille will be there to explain and instruct you on the best methods for success to match the conditions and waters you will be in.

As this is an all-inclusive fishing charter, everything you need for a successful day of fishing will be provided. This includes all fishing licenses, bait, tackle, rods, reels, lures, and ice. When returning to the dock, your catch of the day will be cleaned and bagged for you to take home. Take a trip down to Venice and experience inshore fishing at its finest.

Growing up on a large dairy farm in western Massachusetts, there wasn’t much for my brother and I to do once our chores were done, so we spent the majority of our free time stalking Trout through the mountain streams that flowed across our family’s property. When I moved to Florida, I fell in love with the amazing fishery that is found in Sarasota and the surrounding areas including Tampa Bay, Venice, and Charlotte Harbor. I was very fortunate in that one of the first people I met when I moved here was one of the best guides in the area and over time he taught me the intricacies and tactics for successfully fishing both the inshore and offshore waters of the greater Sarasota area. Now, many years later the area waterways feel more like home to me than any other place on Earth.
