Explore the rich waters of Sarasota, Florida with a fun and experienced captain – book a trip with Hooked On Tail Charters! Capt. Frank Padilla knows Sarasota waters like the back of his pocket and he can’t wait to share that vast knowledge with his guests.
He invites you for an incredible day aboard his 20’ LowTide flats boat, perfect for cruising the shallow and nearshore waters. Up to 3 anglers can fish simultaneously aboard this beauty, powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine. It has a live bait tank, an ice-box, and state of the art marine electronics and safety gear.
Your adventure will start with meeting the captain at the dock. He will give you a safety beefing and tell you all about how to use life jackets and fire extinguishers. After that, you’ll set sail and start checking the bite of the most productive inshore, nearshore, flats, and backcountry spots. Armed with light and spinning tackle, your prey list will include Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Bluefish, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and much more.
You’ll be supplied with the best tackle by Shimano and Okuma, live bait, and lures. The captain will talk to you before the trip to let you know what you should bring: sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, etc. You are more than welcome to bring your own snacks and lunch, but the captain will provide water and ice, as well as catch cleaning.
The only thing missing for a perfect day on the water? You!
