941 Fishing Charters is based out of Bradenton, Florida. The company offers inshore and Tarpon-specialized trips from Tampa Bay to Sarasota Bay. The charters are run and operated by Captain Joshua Johnson, who has over 15 years of experience fishing in this area, so he knows all the hot spots. He can’t wait to put a smile on your face, and hopes to get you reeling in as many fish as possible.

Enjoy your trip aboard a 26’ saltwater fishing boat, powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine. The vessel was restored and customized in 2010 and can comfortably take up to 4 anglers. This is a fast boat that can take you to the fishing grounds in no time. Its navigational electronics include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fishfinder, and the anchoring system will help to stay rooted in the fishing grounds.

Capt. Joshua will take you fishing the inshore waters, targeting a variety of exciting and delicious species. You will use light and heavy tackle, catching Redfish, Permit, King Mackerel, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Spotted Seatrout, Snook, and who knows what else you may find at the end of your line! As well as that, a special Tarpon package will satisfy the needs of any angler aching to tick the Silver King off their bucket list.

Your adventure will include all the gear, bait, and knowledge you need for an enjoyable and memorable day out on the water. The captain will provide the rods, reels, and tackle, as well as lures and live bait. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and bagged for you at the end of the day to take home and have for dinner or fill the freezer!

Experience Tampa Bay and Sarasota Bay at its finest with 941 Fishing Charters and make some amazing new memories!

When I was young my dad had bought a boat and every weekend he would take me fishing and ever since then I’ve lived it, I just fell in love with it. Ever since then I have been fishing every chance I got. I've been guiding since 2016, and what I love the most about it is I get to share my passion about fishing with others and I'm able to put a smile on their faces. My aim is just to go out catch fish and have a good time
