Anna Maria Fishing Charters

My name is Captain Scott Tesinsky. I am a licensed United States Coast Guard Captain and a 3rd generation native Floridian. I have been handed down the tradition and knowledge of fishing Florida waters by both my Grandfathers and my own Father. I have had a fishing pole in my hand since I could walk. I am a proven multiple tournament winner. I have a passion for the outdoors and specifically fishing our local waters. When Im not fishing I am working as a Physical Therapist Assistant. I am also a youth volunteer at South Shore Community Church in Sarasota. I enjoy fishing with kids and families. I know the local waters like the back of my hand and I am privileged to share my local knowledge with you. Whether you’ve never fish before or you’re a seasoned expert I will work hard to push you on the fish and make sure you have a memorable trip.

I offer 4 and 6 hour bay and nearshore Gulf fishing trips, most fishing trips will start early morning around sunrise, or later at your request with afternoon trips available as well. Various flexible pick up locations around Bradenton and Sarasota.  Fishing locations and targeted species will be determined by fishing seasons, active fish, weather, wind and tides. I will do my best to keep the rods bent.
