With top notch fishing gear and 30 years of local knowledge in the fishing and diving industry, I can teach you how to catch some of the biggest fish and give you memories for a lifetime to share with your friends and family! Come aboard Team Explorer and let’s get to work!

With Explorer Fishing Charters, the prolific waters of Sarasota will be all yours. Enjoy the thrill of catching the most exciting monsters of the deep this area has to offer. Let Capt. Ron share his wealth of local knowledge and put his talent to work for you!

Explore the angling opportunities within 20 miles from shore and get your hands on Kingfish, Permit, Barracuda, Red and Gag Grouper, African Pompano, Tripletail, Hogfish, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Shark, and who knows what else?

Otherwise, venture out all the way into the Gulf and fish up to 60 miles out for whatever is in season and biting. The opportunities abound!

All you have to do is book a trip and hop onboard a 28’ Contender boat. This spacious vessel can accommodate up to 6 anglers to fish in comfort and style.

The boat can cruise at a hair-raising speed of 60 knots thanks to its twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. Its top-notch GPS and fishfinder will build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding and a selection of quality equipment will help you make a great catch possible.

All trips come inclusive with the use of Crowder rods, Penn and Shimano reels, live bait, and lures. Once you return to the shore, all keeper fish will be cleaned for you. Just bring your own food and drinks and enjoy your trip!
