We Work Hard to be Bradenton Florida’s Best Fishing Charter
Let Captain Kris Winkel and Tailing Tales Fishing Charters be your guide for light tackle inshore, nearshore fishing charters in the lower Tampa Bay area.
Captain Kris has been fishing inshore, nearshore and offshore in the Bradenton area since before he could drive a car. He has extensive knowledge and experience fishing in the Sarasota, Bradenton, Terra Ceia Bay, and Tampa Bay areas. Captain Kris considers himself lucky to fish in a place like Sarasota and Tampa Bay, Florida’s largest estuary. He’s intimately familiar with all the fish species from Snook, to Redfish and Trout, to Grouper and more. He’s spent a lifetime familiarizing himself with not just the habits of the fish of this estuary but also has an intimate knowledge of the grass flats, oyster bars, shoals, mangroves and shorelines these fish call home.
This area is home to various fish species and great fishing spots, including the Skyway Bridge, Egmont Key, Manatee River, Terra Ceia Bay, and Sarasota Bay. The most common and sought-after sport fish are Snook, Snapper, Redfish, Trout, and Triple Tail.
Fishing Sarasota and Tampa Bay are fun for the whole family. With calm shallow waters, abundant wildlife and a shoreline that’s always in sight, Tampa Bay, Bradenton, and Sarasota fishery is an ideal location for a family fishing vacation. At Tailing Tales, we accommodate all levels of experience, from first-timers ages five years and up to seasoned pros. Whether you can hold a pole (or not), you are welcome to come along.
You can trust Captain Kris Winkel and Tailing Tales to provide you with the best charter in Bradenton, Florida.
