800 Blackburn Point Road
Venice FL, United States

Ursula At Sea is a wonderful charter operated by Captain Phil and Urusla and is perfect for those who prefer the calm waters to high waves. It is perfect for families with children who are light hearted about fishing and just want to have a great time on the water. The crew are extremely friendly and helpful and will give their all to teach you and your children the techniques needed to catch some amazing fish. This is a very family oriented fishing charter that is guaranteed to stay in your memories forever.

You will fish aboard the 22 foot Playbouy deck boat, which was originally built in 2002. It is powered by a 90HP Tohatsu engine with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. This boat can accommodate 4 to 6 guests and is very comfortable with cushioned benches that are greatly appreciated by elderly people and children. The boat has a fishfinder that is ideal for locating the best fishing spots, as well as a live bait tank which will keep your baits fresh until you reach that perfect spot. You will also find life jackets, first-aid equipment and fire extinguishers aboard the boat.

Ursula At Sea fishes some of the best backcountry and intercoastal waters of Venice, Florida, where the bite is constant. You will be targeting Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Snook, Sheepshead, Pompano, Ladyfish, Redfish, Flounder, Permit, and Black Drum, so the choice is huge. The crew will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, live baits, and a fishing license. You will have a first mate onboard to help, as well as a cleaning and filleting service upon return to the shore.

The fishing trip was perfect. We were all taught exacty how to fish with constant suggestions and help with bait, casting and changing the rod setup. Great sense of humor too! We also fished in many areas as the wind changed or the fish stopped biting. We will have a great fish dinner for 4 tonight home cooked by Chef Bill. Peach Crisp and ice cream for dessert

We had the extreme pleasure of booking a half day charter fishing trip with Captain Phil & Ursula. The weather was beautiful and our fishing experience was second to none! Captain Phil & Ursula were kind, courteous and very knowledgeable on this charter. We are an Iowan family with 2 daughters who really haven’t fished much but they were very patient and knew exactly where to find the fish. This was the only activity my 10 yr. wanted to do while in Florida and they made sure she left with some fish! I would recommend them to anyone wanting a enjoyable and relaxing fishing trip. Definitely worth every penny and I would rate them at 10 stars if I could!

Capt and crew were very nice and did everything to ensure that we had a good time. We caught fish at every stop and grand daughter had a great day as Capt ensured that she got to reel in several fish.  A little disappointed we didn’t catch any keepers but it was a great day and we will definitely go again during next years vacation

Thank you Howard for the review.  It was a pleasure being out with you, family and Ted.  Keeper fish need to be around next time out.  Lol. Enjoy the remainder time with your grand daughter.  Keep in touch.  Ursula
