Inshore Fishing

Inshore fishing on Anna Maria Island is some of the best in the world. The island is home to a variety of game fish, including tarpon, snook, redfish, and seatrout.

The island’s inshore fishery is also very productive because of the vast network of mangrove trees and oyster bars that provide shelter and food for game fish.

In addition, the waters around Anna Maria Island are relatively shallow, which makes them warmer than offshore waters. And the island’s location – nestled between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico – means that anglers can enjoy year-round inshore fishing.

There are many different types of fish that can be caught in the nearshore waters around the island, including snapper, grouper, and tarpon. The best time to go nearshore fishing is in the early morning or late evening, when the water is cooler and the fish are more active. Nearshore fishing on Anna Maria Island is sure to provide a great day on the water.

If you want to experience some of the best tarpon fishing in the world, then you need to head to Anna Maria Island. This Florida island is home to large numbers of tarpon, making it a prime destination for anglers looking to land one of these prized fish.

Tarpon are a type of fish that can grow upwards of seven feet in length, and they’re known for putting up quite a fight when they’re hooked. The best time to go tarpon fishing is from May through September, as that’s when the fish are most active. There are a number of different techniques that can be used to catch tarpon, but one of the most popular is live bait fishing. This involves using live baitfish to lure the tarpon in, and then firing off a well-placed shot when they take the bait.
