Welcome to Capt. Chad Manning
Founded and skippered by Captain Chad Manning, Fish & Grits Charters Inc. is a culmination of a lifetime of local fishing pleasure and the desire to share the experience with others. Captain Chad, a sixth generation Floridian, grew up in the Tampa Bay area and has been fishing its bay and flats from his early youth. He prepared for his captain’s status through his teenage years by working for the marine industry rigging boats, continuing his education to become a certified marine mechanic and earning additional professional experience serving as a mate for local charter captains.
With proud encouragement from family, employers and peers he licensed as a full United States Coast Guard Captain and now shares his skills and enthusiasm with his charter clients. Through commitment, experience, and expertise Fish & Grits Charters Inc. is establishing a growing business relationship with its customers that will last a lifetime!
