Captains BIO

Captain Craig Madsen was born and raised in Bradenton, Fl and has been fishing local waters for 30 years. Captain Craig has a great passion for fishing local waters and the knowledge and experience to put you on quality fish on a daily basis. Craig began fishing at a very young age and has been hooked ever since.

Growing up as a young kid I couldn’t wait to get out of school each day so that I could go home and get out on the water. During my summer breaks, I mated on a tarpon fishing boat for four years before becoming a full time USCG licensed Captain in 2003.

Craig specializes in inshore light tackle fishing and does some near shore fishing as well. My favorite species to target are snook, redfish, trout and tarpon on live bait. Captain Craig is a hard worker and does whatever it takes to make sure you have a fishing trip you will never forget!
