WayOut Charters

WayOut Fishing Charters invites you on an adventure with Captain Bob Prado in the Gulf waters surrounding Steinhatchee, FL. Capt. Bob has been a shallow water guide since 1984, starting his professional fishing career in the Florida Keys flats.

He says: “I have fished the Gulf of Mexico from Key West to Apalachicola, so if you need information or techniques for any of those waters, I can fill in the blanks”!

Hop aboard his 21’ Hewes Redfisher, built in 2012 with a capacity for up to 3 anglers. Powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 60 knots, this boat is fast, comfortable, and has the perfect platform for shallow water fishing. Equipped with up to date electronics and safety gear, she’ll carry you to a great adventure and safely back.

As an expert light tackle angler, Capt. Bob will impart his knowledge of fishing techniques in a way that will make you a better angler. A day on the flats with Capt Bob will be both exciting and educational. You’ll primarily cast artificial lures, although at times live bait may be the preferred method.

Spotted Seatrout and Redfish are the prime targets, but Cobia, Flounder, Sharks, and Tarpon are also available. In the late summer, snorkeling the grass flats for Bay Scallops is a popular pastime.

WayOut Charters carries only the finest G. Loomis fishing equipment and also provides your lures, live bait, fishing licenses, drinks, and a fish processing service.

Bring your sun protection and hop aboard for a shallow water fishing adventure with WayOut Charters!

I was an avid saltwater fly angler and the natural progression was to take it to a professional level. I use only G. Loomis fishing tackle. You will be assured that the limits of your angling will not be the fault of the tackle aboard "WayOut." As I was once told, a light tackle guide doesn’t just show you the fish but imparts an experience you should remember for a lifetime. See you soon. Adventure feeds the soul. Captain Bob
