Hi, I'm Carlos Bastos.
I moved to Florida from NJ in 2012 to start a full time fishing charter business of my own . From 2005 to 2011 I ran my friends charter boat Andrea’s Toy Charters and was part of the development and field testing of the Shimano Lucanus jig . A now very popular jigging lure. I have fished Alaska for halibut to Maine for giant bluefin tuna.
Are you planning a holiday fishing trip? Do you want to go deep-sea fishing in Tarpon Springs with your friends and family? Imagining such a trip or writing it down on paper is an easy thing to do. However, letting the plan unfold is more complicated than what you'd expect. To make sure that your fishing trip goes smoothly, you need the help of Bottoms Up Fishing Excursions.
Here at Bottoms Up Fishing Excursions, we don't just give you a fishing itinerary and take you to the designated locations. As part of our dedication towards five-star service, we will offer hands-on knowledge. All passengers aboard our ship will receive assistance, especially if there are some questions and issues. Many of our satisfied clients gave positive remarks about the way we handle the business. We also received remarks about our family oriented service, which is a great thing for parents and kids.
With our 32-foot Sportcraft offshore fishing boat, we can accommodate large groups. This ship was originally built in 1985 and restored in 2015. We can definitely say that our fishing boat is running at 100% efficiency. Such quality allows us to cruise in challenging fishing spots. Once you've signed up for our excursion service, you'll be taken 9 miles offshore where you can fish for large groupers, snappers, mackerel, and other bottom-feeding species. There are various fishing strategies that you can try on our boat, such as nearshore fishing, reef fishing, offshore fishing, and wreck fishing. If you have questions about any of these strategies, feel free to ask.
