If you’re looking to get on some angling action anywhere in the Bradenton area and want to be joined by an experienced and friendly captain, look no further than Anna Maria Fishing Charters. Captain Scott Tesinsky has fished these waters for as long as he can remember and is able to quickly put you on fish regardless of the season!

The boat that will serve as your fishing platform for the trip is an 18’ Sea Fox bay boat. Powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine, it’s able to get up to 4 guests to any local spot quickly and comfortably. The vessel also provides you with 360-degree vision, making it easier to keep your target hooked during those lengthy battles.

Fishing locations and targeted species will be determined by fishing seasons, active fish, weather, wind, and tides. All factors will be taken into consideration to ensure a productive outing. Captain Scott will do his best to keep the rods bent. Whether you’ve never fished before or you’re a seasoned expert he will work hard to push you on the fish and make sure you have a memorable trip.

The charter offers fun-filled 4 hour bay and nearshore Gulf fishing trips.
Although most fishing trips will early morning, later starts are also available at your request. Pick up locations are also flexible as long as you’re nearby Bradenton or Sarasota.

Everything you need to fish will be provided by the charter. This includes all the gear, bait, and licenses you could need. All you should bring are some drinks and snacks and you’ll be good to go. Please, have in mind that 735-pound is the weight limit combined for guests, which is usually equal to 3 adults or 2 adults with 2 kids.

 Now, simply take a look at the captain’s availability, find a slot that works for you, and book a fishing adventure you’ll never forget!

Hello, my name is Captain Scott. I am a Coast Guard-licensed captain and a 3rd generation native Floridian. I have been handed down the tradition and local knowledge of fishing Florida waters by both my grandfathers and my father. I have been fishing our local waters for the last 35 years. I have a love for the outdoors and I know the local waters like the back of my hand. I am a proven tournament winner – 1st place 2018 Suncoast Tarpon Shootout, 1st place biggest Tarpon 2017 White Buffalo Suncoast  Tarpon Shootout, with 3rd place most releases, 2016 Suncoast Tarpon Shoot Out 2nd place overall, 2018 Economy Tackle Bass on Fly tournament 1st place. I have a passion for sharing our great fishery and the outdoors to the next generation. I love fishing with kids and it shows. The look on their face when they reel in the big one keeps me going. I pride myself in being patient, helpful, attentive and I promise to do everything I can to make your experience on the water a great one.
