Head out for a sweet 4 or 6 hour inshore/nearshore excursion with Captain Matt or one of his professional guides in Captain Phil and Captain Darius. These three run some of the best charters in Sarasota and are absolute experts at making sure you have a blast out there on the water....Read More
These 4 hour trips are one of their most popular options as it gives their clients time to hook into some rod-bending action and bring some tasty filets back to the dock in time for lunch (dinner if you leave in the afternoon)! For these trips you can opt to stick close to the shore to explore the inlets, channels, and mangroves to chase Snook, Redfish, Trout, and more. OR, you can choose to poke it a little further from shore to troll the nearshore waters of Sarasotas beautiful beach to troll for Mackerel and chase some snapper species.
The 6 hour option is for anglers who are looking to spend more time catching fish! If you want to travel a little further and have a few more shots at some trophy fish then this is the charter for you! You have the same options listed above, but with the extra time there is an opportunity to do a little of both!
No matter which option you choose, Captain Matt and his two expert Captains provide themselves on providing a family-friendly atmosphere for all ages and skill levels, and bait, fishing license, rods, reels, and tackle are always included. All they recommend you bring are your favorite snacks and drink, your sun protection (Suntan lotion, long sleeve shirts, sunglasses), and your camera to snap some pics!
Captain Matt: Owner, captain, fishing expert, and veteran Matt re-established his charter business in 2016. Matt operated local inshore and offshore charters for 10 years in Sarasota, FL before the BP oil spill. After the devastating spill, he left the industry to join the Army and serve our country. Matt completed a tour overseas and safely returned home to pursue his lifelong dream and passion! Matt gained his high level of expertise, professionalism, and cleanliness via 20 years of experience operating charters on his boats and running yachts for high-profile owners. While Blue Marlins are his favorite fish to catch, Snook and Tarpon give him the adrenaline-pumping action that made him fall in love with Sport Fishing!...Read More
Capatin Phil: Captain Phil was born in Sarasota and raised in a neighboring town, Englewood. He grew up in a fishing family and instantly fell in love with the sport. Phil decided to become a captain to share his skills, knowledge, techniques, and love of fishing with others! Phil enjoys creating an awesome and unique fishing experience for every guest. Even on his off days, Phil is out on a boat catching Snook, Redfish, Grouper, Snapper, and even Sharks!
Captain Darius: Captain Darius is a Sarasota native and has been fishing here for over 10 years! He has worked in the fishing industry for 5 years doing everything from selling bait and tackle to deep-sea fishing. He is a versatile fisherman and enjoys catching a variety of different species. He loves sharing the joy of fishing with his guests and makes sure your experience on the water is one to remember!
It’s my first time. I don’t know how to put bait on a hook, remove fish from hook. However, I didn’t do anything. They did everything for us. I caught a lot of fish. Especially, I got three big snooks. It was exciting. I thought I got snagged at first. ...Read More That was how strong his pulling was. I’m really satisfied with their service. If I say negative point, that is we were not able to go offshore fishing even though we requested that. Probably, they took us a place where we can get a lot of fish because we may not have caught any fish at offshore but I wish we would have been to offshore even if we can’t get any fish.
They took there time and were very helpful. They made sure that we caught as many fish as possible and took us to many different. We went out to sea but, didn’t have much luck and went inshore and got lucky there. Large Mangrove snapper, snook, and catfish. I would ...Read More definitely recommend this trip it was one our favorite days!!
