Bass N' Bay charters is located in Regatta Point Marina in beautiful downtown Palmetto Fl. They offer light tackle inshore fishing, offshore fishing, bass fishing, gator hunting and gigging trips after dark. Capt. Brady is a Florida native, holds three consecutive state champion titles in the IFA Redfish Tour and has been fishing these waters for 42 years now. Rest assured that Capt. Brady will put you on the fish, so when you get here walk out the pier and they are the first boat on the right. They do offer pick up at other locations for your convenience at no extra charge.

My son and I have fished all over. Freshwater, saltwater, inshore, offshore, USA, abroad. There's nobody as good as Captain Brady Nelson - PERIOD. Have fished with him for 6 years. Puts us on fish every time - with fun, humor and excitement. Can't recommend highly enough.

We went to Anna Maria with 5 teenage boys. Capt Brady had them pulling fish in one after another. He was prepared an knowledgeable. The entire day was an amazing experience. BEST CHARTER EVER. Thank you Captain Brady.

Went out with Captain Brady and we caught a ton of snook and Reds. Captain Brady is a true professional and obviously enjoys his job. His boat was plenty large enough for 3 of us to fish on. I highly recommend him

Captain Brady was fantastic. We had a 13 year old and a 10 years old with us and EVERYBODY caught lots of fish. He was a great guide. We will definitely come back.

This was the 2nd time we booked with Captain Brady and we did 3 trips during the week we stayed. Our goal was to catch some reds on artificial bait and to catch some fish that pulled lots of drag. We were NOT disappointed!!!! First trip we caught several cobia and a few snappers. Second trip we landed multiple Bonita... More

Captain Brady gets it done. He knows the spots and caters to your wishes. He helped us catch some big fish for fun, then helped us catch some tasty dinners. Nothing fancy, just great fishing.

Just got back from an awesome day of fishing with Capt Brady Nelson. Brady really knows his stuff, and had us on the fish all day. Monster reds in the morning, with a few snook for good measure. Then it was on to the trout and flounder. Brought our 10 and 11 year olds along, and they had a blast.... More

Knowledgeable, supportive captain. Excellent fishing guide who is responsive to his passengers' needs. Gracious and went the extra mile to find fish and help the fisherman have a successful experience. This was not our first experience, but was the best we have ever had. Captain Brady even cleaned our fish! Great fun catching and releasing the fish in the photo.... More

Just had another great experience with Brady. We caught so many Spanish Mackeral we lost count. Then Brady hooked us up with Reds! Wow, what a great time. As I've said to others, it's like fishing with a good friend, except he knows where the fish are! Thanks Brady, looking forward to next time.
