Shallow water
inshore fishing!

Anna Maria Island, including the Bradenton and Holmes Beach fisheries, along Tampa Bay, are famous for their shallow water, inshore, fishing opportunities. Redfish, snook, trout, spanish mackerel, sheepshead, flounder, and even sharks all call our area home.

Within minutes of being picked up, you can be catching fish — no need for long boat rides. And, typically, Capt. Nate will have already caught bait before picking you up so that you can go straight to fishing. Most of our fishing is done in less than 3 feet of water and just minutes from the boat ramp.

Capt. Nate has been fishing these waters since 1985 and loves to share his knowledge of fishing with people. It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, Capt. Nate can provide a successful and enjoyable inshore fishing charter for you in Sarasota.

If you want to get out on the boat and experience some of the best inshore fishing that the west coast of Florida has to offer, be sure to book a charter with Capt. Nate.
