Captain Eric is the best!! We have been on many charters over the years and highly recommend Gulfcart Charters. Captain Eric not only fishes but also dives the area and knows where the fish are. He is very knowledgeable and makes the trip fun.

BRADENTON FISHING TRIP INFORMATION Everything is included on your Bradenton fishing charter except for your food and beverage. Please consolidate food and beverages to minimize the number of coolers. Protection from the sun is important, so bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses. A jacket or wind breaker may also be a good idea on chillier or wet days. Don’t forget your camera! You’ll want to take pictures. Also, motion sickness pills are a good idea.
