Take a trip with Bradenton Fishing Charters and experience Tampa Bay at its finest! Captain Russ Schnering and his son Captain Jon can’t wait to welcome you aboard. They’re looking forward to providing you with a challenging and exhilarating day on the water!
Capt. Russ and Capt. Jon were both raised in Bradenton, so it’s fair to say they have plenty of experience to share with you. They welcome anglers of all skill levels aboard, from experts to novices, and will tailor your trip to make sure you have an unforgettable day out on the water.
Your adventure will take place aboard a very versatile 23’ Parker vessel, built to fish both the shallow waters of the bay as well as Tampa’s offshore waters. Powered by a 225 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine, she can reach the fishing grounds quickly and features a range of navigational and safety electronics. With room for up to 4 guests, this sturdy vessel is an enjoyable base for families, newbies, and hardcore anglers alike.
Your captains offer inshore and nearshore light tackle fishing, and will have you argeting species such as Snook, Trout, Tarpon, and Redfish, as well as Kingfish (King Mackerel), Shark, Permit, Grouper, and Snapper.
Both captains are particularly experienced in landing trophy Snook and hooking huge Tarpon, so if you want a fierce battle on your hands, just let them know – they’ll help you hook the trophy fish of your dreams!
You’ll be provided with all the gear, bait, and knowledge you need for an enjoyable day on the water, as well as a fishing license. Your captains will also clean and bag any keeper fish you want to take home at the end of the trip.
Captain Russ Schnering says it best himself: “I look forward to having you experience Tampa Bay at its best.” On board Bradenton Fishing Charters, you’ll be treated to the adventure of a lifetime!
