Red Grouper Limit Caught Early On Captain Brian Morgan’s Charter

As Captain Morgan’s charter pushes off just after sunrise, the clients faces turn from grogginess to sheer excitement. They know what is in store… a boat load of fish were waiting to be caught! Captain Morgan took his guests out to some coveted fishing spots that he keeps secret. After about an hour ride out they reached their first destination. Fish after fish was hauled in and thrown straight to the box, no need to measure these trucks… They were clearly over the size requirement to keep! These clients were extremely happy as they reeled in their feast for the evening. After returning to Maximo Marina, Captain Morgan filleted the fish for his clients and sent them home with hefty care packages. Another day, another fish report!


How Does Capt. Morgan Spend His Day Off? Fishing the Tampa Bay Ship Channel, of Course!?

Captain Brian Morgan set out for a recreational day of fishing. Being his only day after a long stretch of back to back charters, you would think this guy would post up in front of a television somewhere and lay around. Nope! That’s not going to happen on his watch! The day began rigging up a Sabiki line and catching some very eager bait. After that Captain Brian set out to troll the ship channel. A fun day was had catching Spanish Mackeral, Bonita, and the sought after Kingfish. There was a shark spotting as a Bonita was on its way in to the boat. An extremely large shark came and hit it at the surface and tore the Bonita in half. After this happened a few times, Captain Morgan set out for some “revenge fishing”. Rigging up a 500lb cable with a 9/0 hook, he wasn’t going to let this predator keep stealing his fish. He also put a stinger on his butterflied Bonita and the hunt ensued. While he didn’t get the shark, the Captain helped his guest reel in a big Baracuda, which no doubt was assisting the shark in steal what was rightfully, HIS FISH. All in all, great day and lots of fun.

Red Grouper Turning up Bigger and Better in Gulf off Tampa/St.Pete

This awesome day began in the Gulf began with some Kingfishing. We hooked up on a few beauties then decided to relocate our vessel to hunt down some Grouper! We hit our per person limit on ONE stop within an hour and a half! I would say this has been one of the most fruitful charters, presenting even LARGER fish than we normally catch, Which means they were huge! After limiting out so quickly the charter returned to attack the Kingfish once more, just to show the gulf of Mexico who’s boss! After returning to Maximo Marina Captain Morgan filleted these beasts (Even snuck one filet for himself…lol) and sent everyone home tired, but smiling!!



April Proves To Be Even Better Than March for Offshore Fishing

Oops… He did it again! Captain Morgan limited out in Red Grouper by Noon on only two stops and a box and a half of bait! This charter is one for the books and would have made even the most experienced fisherman jealous. Fish after fish was pulled on board including some pretty impressive Reds along with some yummy Lane Snappers. These guys were gassed as they made their hour and a half ride back to Maximo Marina where Captain Morgan beautifully filleted these trucks and sent everyone home with a care package!

Yacht Fishing at it’s Finest. Huge Gag Grouper Caught Inside Tampa Bay Near Skyway Bridge.

Who says you can’t haul in some big fish on a yacht or that you have to go offshore to do so. Captain Morgan ran the sleek and sexy 72 Princess Motor-yacht, known as the ‘Jaguar’, to one of his secret inshore spots where he knows Grouper like to hide. This kid was ecstatic as he got to reel in this monster Gag Grouper! Sadly, we had to return this beauty to the bay but we finished the night by preparing and serving one of his other catches (a hefty Red Grouper) to his family for dinner! What a day!

“We came all the way from Minnesota to fish in the gulf. Captain Morgan did a great job ensuring that we had a perfect trip and that even our 12 year old was able to catch fish. We will definitely be chartering him on his personal boat in the future.”

–Graham W. (Minnesota Tourist)
