1-2 Person Charters


This is a great personalized trip for one or two clients, where you have the option of two different types of excursions. Hop aboard a fully loaded 17’ Mitzi Skiff complete with push pole, trolling motor, power-pole anchor, large live well, Lowrance GPS/Fishing finder, as well as a mounted Yeti Tundra 65 cooler to act as both a casting platform and dry storage. This Mitzi Skiff will easily float in 8” of water. No fish will be able to hide from us!

Artificial/Fly Fishing Trips: Capt. Bucky specializes in artificial flats fishing. These trips are designed for the more avid angler or a novice angler looking to learn how to fish the flats and improve their artificial knowledge. Capt. Bucky will push pole or use a trolling motor to stealthily creep up on super shallow redfish, trout, snook and occasionally Tarpon. Nothing beats the thrill of sight casting to tailing redfish, or actively watching a big trout get fooled right before your eyes! It will be something you never will forget! Let’s test your skills and see if you have what it takes!

Live Bait Trips:  Capt. Bucky will set out early and net white bait or purchase bait from a bait shop depending on the time of year. Either way he will be ready to go when you make it to the boat ramp. A quick ride and you’ll be reeling in fish in no time. These trips are great for all anglers of any skill level. Perfect for two adults, or a parent and their child. Live bait trips are especially great for maximizing the amount of fish you catch!

Whether you are an avid angler who enjoys being out on the water throwing artificial, or someone visiting the Tampa area for a few days and want to go fishing, our 1-2 person fishing charters are the perfect fit for you.


For more information about Fishing Charter rates, please see our Rates page. We can accommodate 1-2 passengers. Weather in Florida is always a factor so please anticipate the ability to be flexible due to poor weather conditions. In case of a cancellation, your deposit will be refunded or we will reschedule for a later date.


Capt. Bucky will be taking you fishing on his 17 foot Mitzi Skiff. This boat can comfortably fish three passengers, the Captain, and still be able to float in less than a foot of water. That means that we can reach fish where others dare not venture!! A Yeti Tundra 65 cooler has been mounted on the bow to act as a casting platform as well as a fish cooler. Under the center console seat has a small cooler. The cooler has enough room for drinks and food, but please don’t bring an over abundance. Enough water bottles and ice will be provided. Drinking alcohol is acceptable within reason. Capt. Bucky has no problem with someone having a drink or two, but by no means is anyone going to get drunk on his vessel. Safety is his number one concern and he will terminate the charter if the passenger(s) become unsafe or unruly!!!



The Captain will provide all tackle, bait, photos, and enough bottled waters for everyone. All photos taken will be texted or emailed to clients as soon as possible. Capt. Bucky is a conservationist and believes in catch and release. On occasion he will gladly clean and bag your catch per request, however he is not here to fill your freezer to ensure we can catch fish time after time in this amazing place he calls home.


Passengers should bring:

* Hat and Polarized Sunglasses (brown lenses if possible)
* Sunscreen and Bug Spray
* Non-marking soles on your shoes!!!
* Any food, snacks and beverages (no glass bottles)
