The boat features a Fishfinder which is essential for locating premium fishing spots, GPS, VHF radio, and a Radar, so you can feel at ease no matter how far offshore you travel.

Since Ana Banana Fishing Company are such fish-fanatics and are thoroughly familiar with the waters of Florida, they will be able to point you to the best species available in season. On your inshore and nearshore trips you will be able to catch the famous Red Snapper (if in season), Snook, and a variety of Grouper. You’ll also have the chance to catch Jack Crevalle, King and Spanish Mackerel, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, and Shark.

All the fishing gear is provided; the bait is caught on the morning of your fishing excursion and the crew are equipped with various fishing techniques they can also teach you. So, don’t miss to leave a tip for the first mate - he works for tips and gives his best to help you!

Now all you have to do is find a trip to your liking, block out a day in the captain’s calendar, get your group together, and enjoy your next adventure on the water!

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.
