Background
I started fishing when I could hold a pole, and have professionally fished for about 20 years. I have fished the Chesapeake Bay where I grew up, all the rivers, outer banks extensively and the Great Lakes. I have also fished in the Keys for Bonefish and Tarpon quite a bit. I finally found my way to Venice and Sarasota, which I've been chartering for 7 years. I'm 54 years young.
Techniques
I specialize in bottom fishing and live bait for the big ones.light tackle is my favorite for the challenge.

Captain Phil is an extremely knowledgeable and personable captain. I would recommend this charter service to anyone interested in catching a lot of fish and having a great time while doing it.

My family and I are from West Virginia and look forward to deep sea fishing when we fly down. We have been on a few other Charters in the past with not much success. After asking around in the area several people recommend Captain Phil . We phoned him and a Charter was set up on short notice and Captain Phil was extremely accommodating based upon our travel plans which was much appreciated. While out we caught several different types of fish which was exciting. Not only was the fishing great Captain Phil taught us so much about it. It was interesting listening to all his tips on how to set the hook, what bait is best to use depending on the type of fish we were catching and what size of hooks were best to use. We can not say enough about the entire trip and Captain Phils professionalism and knowledge of fishing. He worked very hard baiting and removing fish to assure that we had our lines back in the water, as well as he would always make sure our seats were cleaned after we would get fish and water all over the place. Our experience was the best all the way around. We could not have asked for a better Charter, Captain or time. We highly recommend Venice Reef/LazyBoy Charters with Captain Phil. We are already planning our next trip. Thank you so much for the highlight of our vacation you definitely made it a trip to remember Captain Phil.

Captain Phil saved our trip to Venice. Our boat broke down the day before the Kingfish tournament we were fishing by pure luck we got ahold of captain Phil who changed his personal plans to take us out on a rough windy day and put us on some nice kingfish, mackel and shark. I’m planning to take my family to Venice this Summer and get Capt. Phil to take us on one of his famous snapper trips.

Thanks again
