Shallow Water Fishing

Thanks for discovering the home of Quiet Waters, a specialized flats fishing guide service based out of Sarasota, Florida. If your interest or passion involves the finer things like fly fishing or using light tackle with artificial baits to target inshore fish, then this may be the shallow water guided experience you are seeking.

The shallow flats and clear water around Sarasota offer unique opportunities for serious anglers during the day. Snook, redfish, and seatrout are the main inshore gamefish we target on the flats. In Sarasota, tarpon are a great option for much of the year. Quiet Waters offers a variety of sight fishing trips in shallow water that are specifically designed for anglers that love to hunt fish.
