Word from Capt. Rick

Hello and Welcome Aboard!

It is “what do you want to fish for” time again. Just about everything that swims is on the prowl now off of Anna Maria. Big Sow sheepshead or in full spawn mode. Resident Tarpon are at the Sunshine Skyway. Snook and reds are on the shallow flats around the mangroves. Gator trout or on the deeper flats as well as spanish mackerel, pompano and bluefish. Just off the beaches the first kingfish of the year are starting their run. There are also reports of Cobia on the nearshore reefs. It is going to be an early spring with all the mild winter weather!I have open dates! Let’s go fishing!

Captain Rick was fun, knowledgeable and friendly. I always wanted to go on a sarasota fishing trip and this first impression was great.  I will go again year after year. We caught some great fish and will recommend anyone that wants a real fishing experience in the open waters. Thanks again Captain.
