Blue Collar Fishing Charters invites you for the most satisfying and joyful fishing experience in Ruskin, Florida. If you want to spend the day fishing, not searching for the fish, then Captain Donald Harris is your guy! He’s an army veteran who spent his life on the waters of Tampa Bay and his main mission is to provide you with a unique adventure you’ll remember for years to come. He welcomes anglers off all ages and interests on his boat, a 22’ Kenner center console. It comes with a 150 HP Mercury, second station tower for sightfishing, top-notch live well system, ice-chest, wireless trolling motor, and even snorkeling equipment. This beauty can carry up to 4 anglers in full comfort. The captain can pick you up in the morning and take you exploring the inshore waters, and the main destination is entirely up to you. Blue Collar Fishing Charters won’t just take you fishing, they’ll teach you how to fish. You’ll be chasing Snook, Redfish, Trout, Snapper, and whatever else you run into. The charter is very flexible - you can also combine fishing with Dolphin and Manatee watching, sunset cruises, snorkeling, and island tours. This charter will include top-end tackle, live bait, and bottled water. If you have kids, make sure to bring them along because the captain loves having them on board and teaching them about the beauty of fishing. Just let him know you’re bringing them - he’ll tailor the trip to their needs and go into smoother waters. The captain will do everything he can to put a smile on his customer’s face - he’s not just a captain, he’s also an entertainer and a teacher!

Capt. Don was amazing
Capt. Don was amazing. I met him in a dentist office and booked a charter with him. This man didn’t miss a beat. I had my sister and my daughter with me and we caught a boatload of fish. Very knowledgeable and just all around a great guy. He’s served our country for 20 years which I have the utmost respect for. And we all had a great time. He knew the waters and where to fish on a busy Labor Day weekend. We had a great time all around. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a good time on the water and catch some fish.

We will be using Captain Don again!
Captain Don is a wealth of knowledge. He put us on fish right away. We limited out on snapper. Caught quite a few snook and had us on the grouper. The water was choppier than expected due to the tropical depression that was incoming, but he did not miss a beat. Priced the best in Tampa Bay and even better service! We will be using Captain Don again! Thanks for the memorable trip!

Captain Don truly cares about his clients catching big fish
This charter is the by far the best Fishing Charter I have ever been on. Captain Don truly cares about his clients catching big fish and not wasting their time. He put us on big fish and took care of everything from baiting the hooks to removing the hooks from fish. The only thing we had to do was catch the monsters that surrounded us. If you are looking for a charter, Blue Collar Fishing Charter is the Gold Standard. Do not waste your time with any others! You will not be disappointed with Captain Don.
