Premium Charters is a fishing charter owned and run by Captain John Paduano, who has been a fisherman for over 40 years. When fishing with John, you will be fishing with someone who is a tried and true master of the craft, but who also likes to have fun. Regardless of whether you’re going solo or plan to bring your loved ones along, he will provide you with a fishing experience to remember.
Captain John is not your run-of-the-mill guide, but a real innovator in the field of fishing. He developed a new technique known as “snap jigging”, which enables you to catch big fish on very light tackle. His methods are focused on getting the very most out of light tackle, resulting in 95% of the fish being caught using a six-foot spinning rod and ten-pound test reel.
The inshore waters are home to Bass, Flounder, Weakfish, and more, and you have complete freedom over what you want to be fishing for. Throwing jigs and poppers to tuna is the preferred method to be used instead of trolling.
You will be fishing aboard a 25’ Parker Boats center console that is powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine and has enough space for up to six anglers. The name of the boat is “Banana Proof” so don’t be afraid to bring some bananas. It has all the required safety and navigation equipment for a productive trip, as well as a livewell and a cooler for any snacks or drinks you may decide to bring.
Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the trip price, and so are bait and the necessary fishing licenses. After the trip, anything you catch will be cleaned for your convenience.
