Skyway Sportfishing

“Skyway Sportfishing” is a premier charter service in beautiful Anna Maria Island, Florida! Hop aboard with Captain Tony Zain and you’ll be fishing the productive nearshore reefs in the Gulf of Mexico before you know it. He works hard to treat his friends and clients to the best fishing experience in pure comfort, ease, and reliability.

Your vessel for the day is 28’ WhiteWater center console, custom-built by famous boat builder Norm Collins. This fishing machine can comfortably accommodate up to 4 anglers and is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 46 knots.

She features a full walk-around casting platform and comes equipped with the latest navigational electronics including GPS and Fishfinder. There’s also an anchoring system to help you stay rooted, an ice-box to keep your catch fresh, 3 live wells, and a full T-top for some welcome shade.

The fishing experience with Capt. Tony is nothing short of world-class.  You’ll head to local honey-holes for the likes of Blackfin Tuna, Mackerel, Tarpon, Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, Grouper, and Sharks.

Your trip comes inclusive with all the necessary equipment to make an outstanding catch possible. That includes rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. Any catch you choose will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip. Bring along any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy and you’re ready to go!

Experience world-class Florida fishing with Skyway Sportfishing!

Captain Tony Zain first started fishing with his grandpa in Northern Michigan at the age of 5. After personally testing virtually all of the most celebrated hotspots in the US, he finally settled down in what he considers to be the ultimate fish heaven – the Tampa Bay waterways. Capt. Tony has had the privilege to guide fishing charters in many places throughout the country, and fishing in the bay area is by far his favorite!
