Ana Banana Fishing Co - Offshore

Channelside Drive
Tampa FL, United States

Take a ride with Captain Joel of Ana Banana Fishing Company in a warm and family oriented atmosphere, and you will learn not just about the fish you are catching, but you will also hear great stories from the many tournaments he has won and the huge number of good causes he supports and participates in.

Stepping aboard Captain Joel’s glamorous 45 ft classic Hatteras boat, you will be in for the fishing adventure of a lifetime. The boat was fully restored in 2014 in order to provide you with the very best fishing and cruising experience. Not only is it fitted with all the essentials for serious big game fishing, such as a fighting chair, outriggers, downriggers, and top of the range electronics, it also features an air conditioned interior with two staterooms and a bathroom, as well as Wi-Fi and a TV.

During your offshore adventure, you will be able to try reef fishing as well as trolling (depending on the length of your trip), with potential target species including many varieties of Snapper and Grouper, as well as Kingfish, Wahoo, Barracuda, Cobia, Mahi Mahi and Sailfish. On full day trips you could travel around 20 miles offshore, although the boat and captain are well prepared to go up to 50 miles out on longer trips.

You are welcome to take home any fish you catch - as long as they are legal to keep, of course - and the captain will even clean, fillet, and cook your catch at the end of the trip. All the equipment you need for a fun day on the water is provided, so all you need to bring is any snacks and drinks you would like to consume along the way.

About the Captain

Joel Brandenburg
Tampa, Florida, United States
Member since March 2015
This very experienced Captain is a 3rd generation fishing captain in his family. Captain Joel is on the water 300 days per year and he loves every minute of it. He is native to Florida and has traveled the world over for fish. He used to be a child psychologist for 20 years and had focused on childhood grief issues and grief counselling. Our captain is also a co-creator of two published kids books. Captain Joel loves acquainting his guests with the most epic fish which he believes are exactly where he is from - the Gulf of Mexico.
