Live Wire Fishing

Location: Madeira Beach, FL

Captain Travis Palladeno has 25 years of experience fishing the Gulf of Mexico. He runs a 45 foot Phantom Speed Fish with twin 350 Yanmar engines named “Live Wire.” Live Wire boasts a fast racing hull, yet is fully equipped for deep sea fishing. It is outfitted for electric reels and has all the latest safety equipment, such as a Globalstar satellite telephone, 406 MHz EPIRB, Class 2 life preservers and a covered life raft with provisions. Live Wire cruises 50+ mph and Capt. Travis is unique in that he offers his clients a one day fishing trip to the Florida Middle Grounds and beyond. Anglers on Live Wire frequently fish in waters 100 to 125 nautical miles offshore and in depths of 200 to 400 feet during his 14 hour charters. Captain Travis typically targets grouper, snapper, kingfish, cobia and amberjack; however, Wahoo, tuna, and dolphin are not uncommon catches.
