WELCOME TO SARASOTA INSHORE FISHING CHARTERS

Sarasota Inshore Fishing Charters, guide and local expert team specialize in Light Tackle, Inshore/Nearshore, and Fishing Charters for Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, and More! I guide on the inshore waters of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Venice everywhere in between. Sarasota area inshore fishing grounds are one of the best in all of Florida.

Beaches, mangrove shorelines, brackish creeks and rivers, and expansive grass flats are the settings for our inshore fishing charters. During our inshore adventures, we fish for Redfish, trout, snook, and tarpon are our main targets but seasonally we can also target cobia, grouper, sheepshead, and more inshore species that either migrate along our shores or make Sarasota their home. Sarasota is really a world-class fishing destination for any level of anglers. It situated between two ecologically rich estuaries, Tampa Bay to the north and Charlotte Harbor to the south. It’s this incredible location, along with over 30 miles of intact beaches, bays, and passes, which transformed this area into a wonderful fishing paradise. Sarasota hosted numerous national fishing tournaments and is home to what is believed to be the oldest Tarpon Tournament in existence today.

Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned angler, Sarasota Inshore Fishing Charters, guide and local expert team invites you to come and fish the crystal clear Sarasota waters where you will experience an enjoy-filled day of angling memories sure to last a lifetime.

F.A.Q.

Are reservations necessary?2018-05-29T09:36:06+00:00

Yes, the fishing charters sell out. We only have certain amount of boats set for each day. The captains do not allow passengers on the boat without advance reservation.

Can I pay in cash on the charter?2018-05-29T09:36:31+00:00

Cash is accepted for the balance, you pay the captain after the trip is over. You must have a reservation in advance with a credit or debit card. Captains do also take credit cards for balance. By booking in advance, you are guaranteed a spot.

Is it necessary to print my receipt?2018-05-18T14:28:30+00:00

No, a printed receipt is not required. The captain will have your name and be expecting you.

What if I don’t receive the email confirmation?2020-02-04T23:21:41+00:00

If you don't see the email confirmation in your Inbox, check your Spam or Junk Mail folder. You should also try performing a search in your email account for the phrase: iOutdoor.com. If you still can't find the email, contact us +1 (888) 412-1117 and we will resend the confirmation.

How will I recognize the charter boat?2018-05-21T13:40:22+00:00

Our charter boats are labeled with iOutdoor logos, you will also have the captain's cell phone on your itinerary if you can't find the boat. You will always generally want to meet down by the boat ramps unless otherwise told by captain.

How long does it take before we start fishing?2018-05-21T13:41:11+00:00

The drive takes different times for different locations and styles of charters. Most inshore and freshwater charters take a 5 to 15 minute boat ride before starting to fish. The offshore charters are ones that can vary based on weather and species of fish the captain is fishing for. It could be 15 minutes, but up to 45 minutes. Again refer to your captain on his call with you and he can provide a detailed plan.

Do we stop while we are out on the water?2018-05-21T13:43:01+00:00

It depends on the customer and type of charter. If passengers wish to take a break, we can stop at scenic areas to stop take pictures, use restrooms or get a bite to eat when available. The charter time is yours, you book for 6 hours and want to fish for three hours and sightsee for 3 hours, that's okay with us. We do ask that you communicate that with the captain, they are fishing captains and focused on catching you fish, so that's what they do unless you advise otherwise.

Do you offer Wi-Fi on the fishing charters?2020-06-27T12:45:12+00:00

Many of the boats have hotspots onboard for FREE Wi-Fi. Due to the nature of the technology and locations that the boats travel there are many locations that may have no service during your charter. Please ask your captain about service quality prior to going, we are not responsible for interruptions of service that are beyond our control..

What are some good items to bring on the charter?2020-02-04T21:04:44+00:00

Sunglasses, Hat, Jacket, Wear layers, there's plenty of storage. Cell phone or camera, on trips that permit harvest a cooler to take your catch home is important.

Will you take us back to our hotel after the charter?2018-05-29T09:07:13+00:00

No we do not offer this, we can help you contact a car service on the way in so that you are able to get back to your hotel.

Can I eat on the boat?2018-07-03T12:04:35+00:00

Yes, you may bring food and beverages with you. But do not throw trash in the water, it is against the law and you may get fined. Deposit trash in the wastebasket on the boat, the captain will assist you with this.

Can I take pictures?2018-05-21T13:48:24+00:00

Of course! Photography is encouraged. Our boats have large panoramic windows that are perfect for capturing your catch and sightseeing. We know your vacation photos are important to you because of the way you share them on your favorite platform, when doing so please include @ioutdoor or #ioutdoor and we will be sure to share your pictures with all of our guests as well.

Should I bring an umbrella, what about rain?2018-05-21T13:53:55+00:00
What time do we return from the fishing charter?2018-05-29T09:07:02+00:00

The boat returns to dock at approximately what length time you booked. Departing 4 hour trips at 7AM return approximately 11:00am, departing 6 hour trips at 7AM return approximately 1:00pm, departing 8 hour trips at 7AM return approximately 3:00pm. Please allow extra time if taking fish, as it takes up to 30 to 45 minutes for captain to clean and package your catch. If you are on a tight schedule be sure to inform the Captain and he will work with you to accommodate your schedule.

Will you pick me up from my hotel?2018-05-29T09:36:40+00:00

No, we do not offer courtesy pick-up and drop-off service from hotels as we are pulling the boats and most places we can not turn around. It's most convenient to use Uber or Lyft car service.
