Kick Azz Fishing Charters

Whether you’re looking to wet your lines and blow off some steam or maybe you want that trophy fish to write home about, Kick Azz Fishing Charters has you covered!

Join Captain Ethan Brannock on board his 24’ Pro-Line, freshly restored in 2019. She’s quite spacious and allows for up to 6 anglers fishing at the same time in comfort, thanks to her center console design. The engine is a 150 HP Suzuki outboard, pushing you along the water at a more-than-respectable speed of 43 knots – the maximum cruising speed.

You’ll go after a wide range of gorgeous species with Capt. Ethan. Test your fishing muscles against Bull Redfish, especially when fishing them on light tackle. If you’re looking to tick off the famous Tarpon off your bucket list, you’re in luck! Shark fans will be pleased to know that you can target Bull, Hammerhead, Tiger, and many more Shark species.

For anglers looking to just relax and melt the stress away Capt. Ethan offers snorkeling trips around the stunning Forts off the coast of Holmes Beach. He’ll provide you with all the necessary snorkeling gear.

There’s no minimum age for kids on board, bring your pets too if you want! The captain will take care of the pictures so you can brag to your friends when you get back home.

Book a trip with Kick Azz Fishing Charters and get ready to cast off on an unforgettable adventure in the beautiful waters of Florida!

Fishing has always been a true passion of mine. I really enjoy using a variety of fishing techniques through the year while targeting the wide range of fish species we have to offer on the west coast of Florida. I have always had a passion for the water and fishing has been one of my favorite ways to relax. I mostly use live bait but there are times we like to use cut bait and artificial lures. Fishing is a science and you must approach each targeted fish with the proper techniques to achieve the best results. Over the past 30+ years of fishing I have learned a lot of the secret locations in our local waterways and I am excited to show you a great time on the water catching fish with a true local.
