Stray Dog Charters is a phenomenal Florida deep sea fishing charter. Captain Scott and his mate Wes are a blast to go fishing with. We had a great time catching a whole mess of grouper, grunts, and a host of other things from the deep. I even hooked (accidently, of course) a loggerhead turtle which was like bringing up a sack of bricks from the ocean's bottom. If you want a great Florida Deep Sea Fishing Charter out of Ana Maria Island (near Bradenton), then look up the guys at Stray Dog Charters. Maggie, the boat dog will find the fish, and you'll have a blast. Thanks guys for yet another great trip.

Captain Scott has been professionally guiding offshore fishing trips full time out of the Cortez docks for over 25 years. In that course of time he has developed a reputation for producing quality catches consistently. Because of that consistency, he has acquired a faithful following of regular customers and generated new business strictly by word of mouth. But, don't take our word for it - come down to the dock and watch him land his catch.

Wes Francis is the boat's full time mate. Wes knows his stuff, and helps make the trip much better. Gotta give a thanks to Matt and Cap'n in training Phil for helpin' make the trip even better (and adding a few nice big grouper to the cooler). Due to the fast pace of offshore charter fishing, a lot of times it takes more than one person to keep up.

Deep Sea fishing charters in Florida, or anywhere for that matter, are better with a mate. Mates typically work for 15 - 20% of the trip cost, and are well worth it to keep your pole in the water, and those fish piling in the cooler.

Stray Dog Charter had a NEW Stray Dog, a 43ft. Torres Sport Fish, custom built in Key West Florida by reknowned boat builder, Claude Torres, and designed specifically for off shore charter fishing. This boat is AWESOME! Wish we would have took a nice 24 hour or so trip on this fishing trip.

With a 20+knot cruise, 16ft. beam and huge fishing cockpit, she fills the bill for the type of stand up fishing we specialize in. Built with a full cabin, private head, V-birth, shower and sinks, the Stray Dog fishing charter offers the creature comforts you require for a days fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. They don't have carpet or color TV, but who needs that stuff on a Florida fishing trip anyhow? You are there for the best deep sea fishing money can buy, not to watch the television! They do have an extra large fish hold, and you're gonna need it for this trip.
