Bradenton Fishing Charters
One of our top picks in Bradenton. Take a trip with Bradenton Fishing Charters and experience Tampa Bay at its best. Captain Russ Schnering and his son Captain Jon are looking forward to having you aboard and providing you with a challenging and exhilarating day on the water.
Your trip 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.
Captains Russ and Jon offer 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, they will always do their best to give you the most enjoyable experience possible. Both captains are 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 the captain will also clean and bag any keeper fish you want to take home at the end of the trip.

This was an amazing trip. Captain Jon was very knowledgeable about the area and giving good guidance on how to land the big fish. I would highly recommend a trip with him it was a blast and if I am ever in the area again will contact him first.

We were unable to go. We had requested a trip in Tampa Bay for snook and redfish.
The day before he called and said his boat was being repaired and had made arrangements
for us to go out into the gulf with another charter. Going out into the gulf was not what we
requested and could we get out money refunded. He said no and gave us a recommendation
for another captain. We went out on Monday with him and came back with 1 trout. We also
caught a 24 foot and 26 foot snook but had to throw those back in.
