Meet The Fish

SNOOK
SNOOK
Red drum are one of Florida’s most popular sport fish and the state’s most widespread estuarine fish. Floating a live shrimp under a popping cork is a good way to fish for redfish. They also chase crabs, mullet, pinfish and killifish (mud minnows). Casting soft-bodied jigs, spoons and even top-water plugs will catch the attention of these powerful estuarine musicians. Redfish make great table fare.

Snook are prized game fish because of their powerful fights; they are described as “largemouth bass on steroids.” Once hooked on a line, snook immediately swim toward the sharpest surface, tangle the line in mangrove, or attempt to cut the line with their razor sharp gill plates. Snook differs from other more popular sport fish like tarpon and marlin in that they are also a celebrated table fish.
TROUT
TROUT
Speckled seatrout are a schooling species, particularly when they are young. They favor locations where there are current discontinuities, such as mouths of water bodies, gullies and trenches, sharp bends, and changes in bottom contour. They are not particularly attracted to hard bottoms, but they are often found near seagrasses and saltmarshes which are adjacent to deeper channels.

I am an experienced guide with a masters captains license, the safety of my client(s) is incredibly important to me when boating Sarasota’s beautiful bays. In Fall, winter, and early spring I work shallow flats, mangroves, and oyster bars. In the summer I focus on the bays, passes, and near shore. Night trips change with the seasons. Below are the rates for my trips. If you have any special accommodations feel free to contact me and we can discuss further plans. Let’s start our adventure today, I look forward to showing you the true beauty of Sarasota Florida.

INSHORE TRIPS STARTING AT $375

Fishing inshore Sarasota Bay is solid, offering species like redfish, trout, snook, jacks, pompano, sheepshead, snapper, ladyfish, and other species.

4 Hours – $375.00

*1-3 people. Add extra person for $50.00*

NIGHT TRIPS STARTING $400

Night fishing in Sarasota, Florida is exciting with the right fishing guide.  At night, fish are attracted to the lights on docks. As bait fish head towards dock lights, saltwater predators like snook, trout, redfish, and ladyfish come out to feast on tasty shrimp and baitfish like menhaden, green backs, pilchards, pinfish, etc. The temperature is cooler and the fish are active, offering plenty of thrilling fighting opportunities for anglers of all ages.

I enjoyed a great fishing adventure with Captain Kelly. He is extremely knowledgeable and gave me great tips that helped me catch a Snook. Awesome! But for me the best part of the trip was taking pics of three dolphins feeding and an encounter with an adorable manatee. Definitely book again with him in the future.
