About the Captain



My name is Captain Kelly Kurtz and I am a Sarasota, Florida native U.S.C.G. certified captain who provides Siesta Key fishing charters and private sunset trips on Siesta Key. I am passionate about fishing, hunting, and all things outdoors.

With over 25+ years experience exploring Florida’s beautiful waterways, I know where to catch snook, redfish, trout, and other Sarasota game fish using artificial light tackle, although during hot Summer months I will use live bait.

I also provide sunset  trips for people looking to explore sunsets,  sandbars, and wildlife like  exotic birds, dolphins, and manatees  all under the warm Florida sun.

I run saltwater fishing charters out of my 22 ft. Bay Scout equipped with a dependable 150 horsepower Yamaha outboard motor. The boat has a canopy top for shade, plenty of storage compartments, and a cooler for drinks.

Saltwater can easily damage fishing equipment due to it’s corrosive properties, anI strongly believe in using quality gear when it comes to saltwater fishing. For tackle, I use smooth Shimano Stradic reels and super strong Crowder and St. Croix rods.

Mangrove charters is a KID FRIENDLY business. I am a father that understands both fishing and kids require a great deal of patience, and will take the time to assure my client(s) a fun and educational time on the water. Visit the Contact Page to get in touch with me, and let’s begin our adventure!
I provide both Siesta Key fishing trips and sunset trips from these areas:
  • CB’s Saltwater Outfitters
  • Siesta Key Marina (Boat is stored here)

I will , however , be open to other locations as well.  Just let me know ahead of time by visiting the Contact Page if you have any special requests/accommodations.

   Capt. Kelly Kurtz provides Siesta Key fishing charters and private sandbar/sunset trips in Sarasota — New Pass, Big Pass, Lido Key, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, and many other areas inshore Gulf of Mexico.

Sunset trips are great for enjoying the true beauty of Sarasota. U.S.C.G. Certified Capt. Kelly Kurtz knows some of the best views around the Sarasota area, where wildlife–dolphins, manatees, exoticbirds, and nature–sandbars, mangroves, and palm trees all meet in tropical harmony.

Here is a map of Mangrove Charters fishing route in Sarasota, Florida:

Siesta Key Fishing trips are  both educational and fun for beginner to avid fishermen  in  Sarasota, Florida.  The inshore Gulf of Mexico provides  a variety fish species–snook, trout, redfish, pompano, and massive world class Tarpon that migrate off the beaches and through the passes of Sarasota, Florida Mid-May-July to feast on crabs and pilchards.
