What Is Your Specialty as a Charter Capt.?
I would have to say live bait fishing. I love artificials but live bait allows me to engage with people of all different skill levels; Plus I am old-school! I customize my charters to who steps onto my boat.
Where Do We Leave From?
Obviously my fishing changes throughout the year to adjust to the seasons and the fish; but my favorite place to leave from is, O’Neill’s Marina. O’Neill’s Marina is located in South St. Petersburg off of 275 South & Exit 16.
I also pick up from Channelside, Gandy Boat Ramp, St Pete Pier, Tierra Verde Marina, The Wharf Restaurant on Pass a Grille Beach, Anna Maria Island, and private residences on the water.
From The Innlet, Gasparilla Boat Ramp, Little Gasparilla Island, Palm Island, Don Pedro Island, Manasota Key, Englewood, & Bokeelia Tarpon Inn.
What to Bring?
A coke and a smile! Pretty much everything is provided: Fishing Licenses, Rods, Daiwa Reels, Fishing Tackle, Cooler w/ Ice & Water, Sunblock, and Live Bait!
Bring a good attitude, hat, glasses, food, and drinks. A dockside lunch is not out of the question.
How Many People Can Fish?
On my boat I can fish 1-4 people, but I can accommodate to as many as a soccer team!
