Sarasota Nearshore Fishing Charters

Nearshore Fishing Charter Lido Key.JPEG
A Nearshore Fishing Charter in Sarasota, Florida is ideal for anglers looking for a catch and clean fishing charter or just an exciting fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico. You will be fishing just off the beautiful beaches of Siesta Key, Lido Key, Longboat Key and Anna Maria. Capt. James has been fishing nearshore in Sarasota for over 15 years targeting Cobia, Kingfish, Triple tail, Grouper, Snappers, Sheepshead, Amber Jacks and much more. You can expect an array of fishing methods from trolling and free lining live baits over wrecks to bottom fishing natural ledges and structure.

A 4 hour or half day nearshore fishing charter is great for a group with young kids or beginner anglers looking for a short and sweet fishing trip on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Capt. James is Sarasota's premier family friendly fishing guide and specializes in kid friendly fishing charters. 

Capt. James recommends a 6 or 8 hour fishing trip when booking a nearshore fishing charter in Sarasota, Fl.  A nearshore charter goes as far as 9 miles offshore and that can obviously take time. These trips are designed for fishers looking for a catch and clean fishing trip and large trophy fish,

These longer fishing trips are also great if you would like to mix it up Nearshore and Inshore. There are not many places in the state of Florida where you can catch a Snook or Redfish, a Kingfish or Cobia and a cooler full of Snapper on the same fishing charter.
