“On A Mission Fishing Charters” offers inshore and nearshore fishing trips out of Bradenton, Florida. Captain Taylor knows all the hottest spots in the area and can guide you to Sarasota Bay, Manatee River, Terra Ceia Bay, and Anna Maria Island. If you feel the itch to fish for a nice table fare or just enjoy a productive day on the water, you have found the right captain.

Head out aboard a 23-foot center console, which was custom-built by Andros Boatworks in Sarasota. This is a clean, seaworthy fishing machine that provides a comfortable ride across a choppy bay and can go to very shallow waters. It comes powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots.

Perfect for accommodating up to 5 anglers, the boat is rigged with safety equipment and modern navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. Since you will be doing a lot of fishing, there is a live bait tank fitted on board, along with an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day.

Inshore and nearshore fishing in Bradenton with On A Mission Charters is an ideal opportunity to enjoy the thrill of catching a wide range of species. Depending on the season, you will be going for Redfish, Flounder, Tarpon, Speckled Trout, Pompano, Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle, Mangrove Snapper, King Mackerel, Snook… and the list just keeps going! The trips are four, six, and eight hours on the water.

On A Mission Fishing Charters will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and licenses. The captain will send your catch home cleaned, filleted, and ready to go straight into the frying pan. Just bring your own food, drinks, and the desire to catch fish, and you’re all set for a thrilling day out!

From the start of my fishing career I have enjoyed taking friends and family out on the water and once I received my Captain's license I was able to start sharing my enjoyment for fishing and teaching my clients about fishing. My favorite style is fishing the flats with live bait (pilchards) to chum the fish in close to the boat.
