Stellar Action Fishing Charters invites you for a memorable journey fishing the bountiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Spend a day exploring inshore and offshore grounds, reefs, wrecks, and flats in search of a great catch. Under Captain Darius Kirschner’s guidance, you’re bound to have lots of fun and fill your freezer. Join him in Sarasota and have a terrific time fishing in Florida!

The boat you’ll use is a restored 23’ Parker center console that can sit up to 6 anglers. The boat runs on a 225 HP Yamaha engine, uses comprehensive navigation technology, and features a wireless trolling motor. It also has a livewell for keeping live bait.

Using light and heavy tackle, you can try your hand at live bait freelining, bottom fishing, trolling, fly fishing, and even bow fishing(fly fishing & bow fishing upon special request). Some of the numerous species you can target include Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, Snapper, Sea Trout, King Mackerel, and Little Tunny. The fish you catch is yours to keep and your Captain will fillet it and bag it at the end of your trip. Kids are more than welcome on your trip but please let your Captain know if anyone is 6 years old or younger so he can bring kids life jackets.

Captain Darius will provide you with everything you need for a great day on the water. This includes all the fishing equipment, live bait, lures, licenses, catch cleaning, bottled water, ice, and plenty of cooler space. Just bring whatever you would like to eat and drink and you’ll be ready for the adventure.

Come fish with Stellar Action Fishing Charters and have an unforgettable day on the water!
