Bradenton Florida is home to one of the most abundant inshore fisheries on Florida’s West Coast. Fishy Business LLC, led by Captain Rick Gross, is the most professional charter service operating in Bradenton. You can expect a day filled with light tackle action targeting a variety of skinny water and offshore species.

Fishy Business’ 23ft Center Console is versatile enough to fish the skinny backcountry waters of Bradenton, as well as nearshore waters up to 9 miles off the coast. She was built in 2012 and is powered by a single 200hp Yamaha engine. While offshore, Capt. Rick Gross will use the vessel’s outriggers to troll multiple lines at once. While fishing inshore and backcountry waters, the wireless trolling motor on the bow will allow you to quietly cruise the shallow waters without spooking the fish.

While fishing offshore, we’ll be staying within 9 miles of the coast. The weather, season, and your preference will dictate the fishing techniques we’ll be using. Trolling is the technique we’ll use to catch King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, and Barracuda, to name a few species. Bottom fishing will fill your coolers with Sheepshead, Cobia, Mangrove Snapper, Grouper, and Tripletail. If you decide to spend the day fishing Bradenton’s inshore and backcountry waters, Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, and Permit will be the primary species you’ll be targeting.

This is your trip, you decide how you want to spend the day! The half day trips are popular amongst families with younger kids, as well as anglers that are new to fishing. The full day trip and ¾ day trip are the best value for your dollar, as these longer trips allow Capt. Rick to guide you to a variety of different hotspots. On the full day trips, you can spend the morning testing your skills against the Silver King and spend the afternoon heading off the coast to fill your cooler with snapper fillets!

The trip cost for the day includes unlimited use of Fishy Business’ top of the line Shimano, Daiwa, Penn, and custom Bull Bay rods. All of the bait and lures we’ll be using on your trip are also included. After an action-packed day bending the rods, Capt. Rick Gross will fillet the day’s catch at no additional cost.

Book with the best, Fishy Business LLC is here to make sure you get the most out of your Bradenton fishing charter! No two trips are ever the same, Capt. Rick will plan the day based on the species you want to target and the techniques you’re interested in using. We look forward to seeing you out on the water! Lifelong memories, unbelievable photos, and fresh dinner are just a couple of clicks away, book today!

Had a great morning catching snook after snook! Capt. Rick put us on a lot of fish and was extremely knowledgeable, helping us with anything we needed. It was an excellent experience that I would recommend and will definitely be doing again soon myself!
