   Summer has arrived here on Anna Maria Island, from the Love Bugs and temperatures climbing into the 90s to the late afternoon thunderstorms. The inshore bite is staying pretty productive nonetheless, as we are catching lots of Snook in the shallow water with a few Redfish mixed in. Now that the closure of Sea Trout is in affect, we are now focusing on Mangrove Snapper, Flounder and Spanish Mackerel to put in the cooler. I seem to do well with the Mangs and Macs around the shallow reefs throughout the they bay, and as the summer heats up so will this bite. Continue Reading…

The Kingfish are showing up offshore and we get the chance to catch them if the weather permits. They are ranging from 15 to 30 lbs. Come and book your trip to get in on the action!

   The weather was beautiful here on Anna Maria Island this week with temperatures climbing into the 80s. With the warming trend came a fantastic inshore bite, we caught everything swimming in the bay. The Snook bite has been absolutely incredible with some trips boating 60-80 fish. While Snook fishing we are also picking up a couple catch and release Redfish that really give a good bend to the rod. After my crew decides they have had enough fun with the Snook we head to the deeper grass flats to see if we can get a few fish for the cooler.

The prefrontal bite was outstanding this week around Anna Maria Island, Barry and family enjoyed a countless day of catch and release Snook and Jack Crevalle along the deep Mangrove shorelines. Barry had the hot rod this trip boating a 30 inch Redfish, this was also his first Red he had ever caught, what a trophy it was. After we had our fill of Snook fishing we headed to the deep grass flats to put some Speckled Sea Trout in the cooler for dinner. We managed a 2 man limit of nice trout ranging from 15-19 inches in length, perfect for the grill. Continue Reading…

   Well the weather this week made it for a super tough bite around Anna Maria island. Cold and windy days dropped the water temps well into the 50s and never really got any warmer. Our charters this week got the true meaning of tough conditions and a even tougher bite. That being said we still managed productive trips catching Sheepshead, Black Drum, Redfish, and Jack Crevalle.
