Anna Maria Island Fishing Charters June 20th - July 2nd Report

It's been a great start to the summer fishing season. There is plenty of larger bait still around and lots of smaller (fry) bait showing up on all the shallow grass flats from Sarasota to Anna Maria Island. The Tarpon bite has been pretty disappointing over the past couple weeks. Most of the guides that I have been talking too have said its the toughest...

Anna Maria Island Fishing Charters March 2015 Fishing Report

Anna Maria Island Fishing Charters March 2015 Fishing Report

March was on fire...until we had a late season cold front the last week in March that knocked the water temperature from the high 70's  to the mid 60's . Fishing was tough after the cold front and slowly picked back up to end the month strong. Most days clients would catch 20-30 Snook ranging 22"-25". On almost all of the trips clients went home with keeper Redfish and Trout 

Mid March 2015

Early March has proven to be great fishing. While we had to dance around some late season cold fronts fishing has still been very productive. On all of our fishing trips we have been able to land 30+ fish, with some days being more Redfish and other days more Snook with mixed in Trout. The water temperature is quickly approaching 78 degrees and soon we will see the migration of several different species (including Tarpon) from South to North with a lot of fish making the lower part of Tampa Bay their summer home. Larger (Female) Snook are slowly making their way out of the rivers and backwaters for the long journey to the beaches and passes to start spawning over the next couple months.

Feburary 2015

The bite has been pretty good considering the late season cold fronts and the low water temperatures. We have been getting bait and the snook and redfish have been biting pretty good. Several oversize redfish have been caught by clients with the largest being 32". We have been able to limit out on redfish on most trips. March looks like the water temperature will rise quickly along with the bite. Snook season opens March 1st so book your trip today.

September 2014

With water temperatures dropping into the low 80′s you can tell that fall is right around the corner. The end of September has seen an above average amount of rain which has not slowed down the fishing. Bait is plentifully around the beach near Anna Maria Island and some bait can be found on the flats near the mouth of the Manatee River along with the flats around the Intercostal water ways. The Redfish bite has been outstanding with most clients catching 20 plus fish a trip. The opening month of Snook season has been productive with several of our clients landing keeper size Snook, but most of our clients are choosing to let them go so one day they will be a trophy fish.  The Redfish and Snook bite will continue to be productive through October with Snook moving towards the Rivers and back waters. If you are looking to book your fishing trip and are staying around Anna Maria Island ,Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, Bradenton, or surrounding areas give Capt. Kyle (941.345.7182) a call or check out my brother, Capt. Ryan at

Summer is in full effect. The water temperature is hovering around the upper 80′s and as hot as the water has been the bite is still strong. We have been catching Mangrove snapper, Trout, and Snook.
