Bass N' Bay charters is located in Regatta Point Marina in beautiful downtown Palmetto Fl. They offer light tackle inshore fishing, offshore fishing, bass fishing, gator hunting and gigging trips after dark. Capt. Brady is a Florida native, holds three consecutive state champion titles in the IFA Redfish Tour and has been fishing these waters for 42 years now. Rest assured that Capt. Brady will put you on the fish, so when you get here walk out the pier and they are the first boat on the right. They do offer pick up at other locations for your convenience at no extra charge.

Went out with Captain Brady and we caught a ton of snook and Reds. Captain Brady is a true professional and obviously enjoys his job. His boat was plenty large enough for 3 of us to fish on. I highly recommend him

Captain Brady was fantastic. We had a 13 year old and a 10 years old with us and EVERYBODY caught lots of fish. He was a great guide. We will definitely come back.

Captain Brady gets it done. He knows the spots and caters to your wishes. He helped us catch some big fish for fun, then helped us catch some tasty dinners. Nothing fancy, just great fishing.
