Pictures From Our Fishing Charters

I have been fortunate enough to charter with Captain Bucky Goldman on 2 separate occasions, and have had great success getting in position for awesome fishing in the Tampa Bay. Not only is it beautiful being out in the great Florida outdoors, but Captain Bucky makes is particularly fun and entertaining. We did very well with redfish (over 11 lbs), jacks, snook, and many other by-catch fish a long the way. Tampa Bay has a great variety of fisheries, and some awesome areas to explore. He has many options for launches and trips, take his recommendation, get outside, and have a great time catching fish with Captain Bucky! I can’t wait to get out again!

Capt. Bucky Goldman of Bag’em fishing charters was first rate!!!! He knew where to go, he put us on the fish, and it was a VERY VERY pleasant charter. We were EXTREMELY SATISFIED with ALL facets of the charter and look forward to fishing with this Capt. very soon. I would rate his charter as an A+A+A+A+

I have fished all over. Fly in’s in Canada, Lake Toho, Venice LA, various lakes in Texas and Kentucky, Gulf of Mexico, San Fran Bay, The Keys, Miami and I’ll have to say fishing with Capt Bucky is always fun. We have gone out with Capt Bucky 5 or 6 times and have NEVER been shut out. He puts you on the fish! His boat and gear are always in top form. Used 2 other captains in the flats and were not impressed found Capt Bucky and won’t call anyone else
