If you thought that you have to go 3, 4, or 5 hours offshore to catch big fish, think again! On this trip with Captain Robert, you'll have the opportunity to chase hard-fighting and great-eating species such as Cobia, Black Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Hogfish, and more—all within a quick ride from the dock....Read More
On this trip, you'll use a couple of different techniques to get the fish. Sightcast to cruising Cobia, troll for Kingfish, and finally drop your bait and lures deep and jig to get the bottom-dweller's attention. Captain Robert knows how to put you on the fish, but once you're hooked up, it's your strength, stamina, and skill versus some of the brawniest nearshore fish that the Gulf has to offer. Not only are these fish fun to catch, they're also delicious on the grill, in fish tacos, or any other way you can think of!
You'll be fishing from the deck of Captain Robert's 23' C-Hawk center console—a perfect vessel for these waters. She sports a 250-HP Susuki engine to get you out there in a hurry, plus standard electronics. Captain Robert will provide everything you need for a great day, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. All you need to remember is proper clothing, sunscreen, a pair of polarized sunglasses to help see the fish, and a cooler with your snacks and drinks.
Born in West Virginia and raised in Florida, Captain Robert started fishing the Florida waters at a young age. His expert knowledge of the surrounding area allows for safe navigation and excellent fishing; Captain Robert will put you right on top of the best hot spots and holes so you can catch a trophy!...Read More
His passion for fishing and desire to share the experience with others prompted him to turn what he loves to do into his career. He loves to meet new people and give them a fantastic experience of fishing in the local waters where he grew up. Book a trip with him to see everything that Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, and Holmes Beach have to offer!
Robert was great (and john, his mate), put us on the fish, we chose to catch and release, we caught snook, trout, even a catfish. Six of us and caught over 50 fish. Good day!
Though we only booked a half-day trip, Captain Robert took us 10 miles out, where we reeled in fish all afternoon. It was a great intro to deep-sea fishing, and we want to go again soon.
