Take a trip with Bradenton Fishing Charters and experience Tampa Bay at its best. Captain Russ Schnering is looking forward to having you aboard and providing you with a challenging and exhilarating day on the water.

Your trip with Bradenton Fishing Charters will take place aboard a 23 ft Parker SE, a very versatile boat that is great for fishing the shallow waters of the bay as well as tackling the offshore waters. Powered by a 225 HP Yamaha four stroke engine, the boat can reach the fishing grounds quickly and economically, and it features a range of electronics for pinpoint accuracy. Comfortably fishing up to four guests, this sturdy vessel is just as much an enjoyable base for a family outing as a gratifying boat for passionate fishermen.

Captain Russ offers inshore and near shore light tackle fishing. Targeting species such as Snook, Trout, Tarpon, and Redfish, as well as Kingfish (King Mackerel), Shark, Permit, Grouper, and Snapper, he will always do his best to give you the most enjoyable experience possible. Captain Russ is particularly experienced in landing trophy Snook and hooking huge Tarpons, so if either of these species is on your bucket list you should look no further.

Bradenton Fishing Charters provides all the gear, bait, and knowledge you need for an enjoyable day on the water, and Captain Russ will also clean and bag any keeper fish you want to take home at the end of the trip.

“I look forward to having you experience Tampa Bay at its best!” - Captain Russ Schnering
