Fish Pro Charters: Fish Guaranteed!

Johns Pass Boardwalk
Madeira Beach FL, United States

Fish Pro Charters is operated by Captain Kellen Ankrum, who prides himself on providing some of the finest deep sea fishing trips in the Gulf of Mexico. With a fish guarantee policy, you can be sure your trip will pay off!

The species commonly targeted aboard FishProCharters include Big Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, and Hogfish, as well as pelagic fish such as Tuna, Wahoo, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Cobia and many more. Whether you prefer trolling or bottom fishing, you will be put in the right spots to reel in a nice fish.

With over 20 years of fishing experience in the area, Captain Ankrum specializes in everything from light tackle to big game fishing and caters to all anglers, regardless if you’re a seasoned fisherman or this is your first time holding a rod. Kellen loves making his guests happy, so that they know exactly who to call once they decide to go fishing again. That’s why, when fishing with FishProCharters, fish is guaranteed or your trip is free!

You will be fishing on a 32’ boat powered by twin mercury engines, with enough room to comfortably accommodate groups of up to 6 people. The boat features a T-top and a trolling motor, and comes outfitted with the usual set of navigational and fish finding technology, including GPS, radio as well as Fishfinder. A cooler filled with ice is also waiting for you on board.

Captain Kellen will provide all fishing gear you will need for tackling fish in the Gulf, complete with both live and artificial bait, although utilizing live bait is Kellen’s preferred fishing technique. Florida fishing licenses, mandatory for all anglers occupying a boat will be supplied by Kellen at no additional cost. Following your trip, if you decide to keep your catch, your fish will be cleaned and bagged by the Captain so you can take it with you.

I grew up fishing and hunting. As soon as I realized that fishing for a living was a possibility, I jumped all over it. My obsession with the water and ability to catch fish has proven to keep my customers happy and coming back for more.
