Bait House Charters

If you’re ready to go fishing in Clearwater, look no further than Bait House Charters. Captain Brad or Captain Luke will be your guide, bringing aboard unmatchable experience from offshore to inshore and everything in between.

Depending on the time of year, you might hook into Tarpon, Gag Grouper, Grunt, Redfish, Snook, Speckled Trout, King Mackerel, Snapper, Shark, Hogfish, and whatever else takes the bait. You’ll target your catch by spinning, bottom fishing, or something more specialized in this area. You’re welcome to take home some of the fish you catch, so long as regulations allow it. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Now that’s dinner!

Your excursion begins aboard a 22’ Center console with room for 4 passengers. It’s equipped with high-end electronics, Livewell, VHF radio, trolling motor, an icebox for fish, an icebox for all your drinks and snacks, along with all the rods and tackle you would need to have a fun-filled day on the water. The boat is capable of a wide variety of fishing possibilities, from heading offshore to fishing in the intercoastal.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, and feel free to include the family on this action-packed adventure you’re sure never to forget, or let the family enjoy one of the nation’s top-rated beaches while you’re getting lines tight and making memories for yourself! And you can’t go wrong with bringing snacks and drinks for the journey.

When deciding who to fish with, Bait House Charters is second to none!
