Flats & Back Country Trips
Sarasota flats trips are focused on shallow water fishing. This means we’ll be targeting species on the flats or in the back country depending on the season. On shallow water day trips we focus on species like snook, redfish, seatrout and others. When conditions are right, charter trips can be tailored to focus on sight fishing, topwater lure fishing, fishing potholes, and more. When you speak with me, we can adjust the trip accordingly to your skill and comfort level. 4 hour trips are run in Sarasota. 6 hour trips are run in Charlotte Harbor, Sarasota, & Lower Tampa Bay.
4 hours $450.00
6 hours $600.00

Night Fishing Trips
Night trips are primarily dock light fishing trips for snook, redfish, and tarpon. On many nights we’ll find hundreds of fish to target with artificial baits or flies. If you’re up for an adventure in the dark, night trips can be epic. I run the majority of night trips out of Sarasota and Nokomis. We’ll meet at the ramp a little after sunset and head out on our adventure. Night trips are 5 hours
5 hours $550.00

Fly Fishing Trips
Fly Fishing trips are run from all of the same locations as the rest of my trips. The key to a successful fly fishing trip is matching the right trip to your skill level. Fly fishing trips for tarpon on the beach, back country trips for snook & reds, and dock light fishing are great options. Fly fishing on the flats or chasing pelagic species off the beach are fantastic choices.
I tie my own flies and I run my trips out of a Maverick Mirage. I’m one of the best fly fishing guides in Sarasota. If you’re fishing with me, we’re hunting fish. If you have questions, just reach out to me and we can get you squared away. Two great fly fishing resources are the Quiet Waters Fly Fishing Sarasota Page and my blog.
4 hours $450.00

Tarpon Fishing Trips
Tarpon trip locations will vary depending on the time of year. In spring, we will be able to target tarpon in brackish rivers and in back country areas. From late spring to summer, we’ll be sight fishing in the Gulf of Mexico for large adult tarpon as they ‘migrate’ through the Sarasota area. From mid-summer through fall, the best opportunity to target tarpon will be at night around dock lights and bridges. When you speak with me, I’ll let you know where your best chances at catching a tarpon will be. These are normally 5 hour trips at night and 6+hour trips during the day.
5 hour (night) $550.00
Day (migration) $650.00

Specialty Fishing Trips
Depending on when you’re looking to fish, there may be a specialty trip available. In fall, I may be dialed in on schooling redfish, or the topwater bite for big snook may be electric. I may suggest that we give it a shot. In spring, tarpon can really stack up on bridges and I may suggest that as a potential option. Other times, I’ll find snook and redfish piled into a small cove and this may be the best opportunity you will ever have to sight fish for snook or redfish. Being open to these opportunities can put the odds more in your favor on the water. Specialty trips are normally 6+ hour trips.
