Hoping to do some classic inshore and nearshore fishing in Sarasota? Look no further than Grande Charter Fishing! Owned and operated by Captain Aj Grande, this local pro has caught just about everything that swims in these waters and will help you do the same.

Hop aboard his 22’ Andros bay boat, perfect for 3 anglers who all want to fish at the same time comfortably. She’s powered by a super reliable 2019 Suzuki 4-stroke motor and wireless trolling so you can sneak up on all those easily spooked fish.

The inshore waters here are stocked with famous Floridian species including Snook, Redfish, and Seatrout. In the summer months, you’ll also find plenty of the Silver King himself –Tarpon! If you choose to head a little further out there’s plenty of Kingfish, Tripletail, and Mackerel, especially in the spring and fall.

All of the equipment you need for a productive day out is provided but if you’d like to fly fish you’ll need to bring your own gear. You’ll be most comfortable with 2 anglers on board if this is what you choose to do.

Capt. Aj does his best to get you on the best bite and action and will happily clean and bag your catch at the end of the trip too. Just be sure to bring and cooler with ice for transporting your catch home.

There’s no better place for year-round fishing than Sarasota and no better captain to show you the ropes than Capt. Aj. Hop aboard Grande Fishing Charters and find out for yourself!
