Hook and Ladder Charters

Captain Chad Gamble


A little about the Captain: Captain Chad Gamble was born and raised in Bradenton,FL and got started fishing 30 years ago for trout on the flats of Sarasota bay.  At 12 I got my first boat for Christmas. A 10 ft dinghy with a 5 hp Mariner motor.  I then began to target our more prestigious species like redfish and snook. After high school I studied to be a Firefighter and EMT and was hired as a professional Firefighter in 2001.

I started Hook and Ladder Charters in 2007 and have been chartering ever since and loving both of my careers.
