Join the captain in Sarasota, Florida and travel from there to nearshore and offshore fishing spots as well as wrecks and reefs, all offering you plenty of fish to catch. Captain Nicholas is a highly-experienced angler waiting for you to show you the beauties of fishing around Sarasota.

Your adventure starts on a 41’ FinCat catamaran boat powered by a twin 300 HP engine. It can sit up to 6 guests. It uses modern navigation technology and is equipped with outriggers, a livewell, and an ice-box. Special modifications allow guests who use wheelchairs to join aboard as well. There will also be a first mate present on board, so if you need anything, feel free to ask him.

Using light and heavy tackle, you’ll have the chance to try out various fishing techniques, including bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, and jigging. Some of the species you can target are Goliath Grouper, Red Grouper, King Mackerel, Amberjack, and Cobia. You will be keeping your catch and you are welcome to bring any kids on the trip with you.

You’ll need your own fishing equipment for the trip, as well as licenses. Captain Nicholas will supply you with lures. It’s always a good idea to have some food with you in case you need to refresh yourself, so pack some snacks or lunch as well as drinks before you leave.

Come enjoy the beautiful waters of Sarasota with Double Nickel Charters and have a fishing experience to remember.

Member since January 2018
Captain Nicholas has been working in the fishing industry since he was 18. He has fished the eastern seaboard from North Carolina’s outer banks throughout the Florida Keys, the Gulf Coast, and St. Thomas. The Billfish and especially Blue Marlin fever overtook him at his first Billfish encounter and he hasn’t looked back since. Fishing out of the world's richest waters in Costa Rica gives him the opportunity to share this with his clients every day.
