Beach Fishing Adventures Anna Maria

Beach Fishing Adventures invites you to discover the Gulf’s world-class fishery in a totally new way by fishing from the beach! If you’re eager for an exciting fishing experience but don’t want to travel miles to unpredictable waters, look no more. Guide Steven Herich will make sure you have a memorable fishing experience in Anna Maria. When fishing from the beach, you don’t have to worry about getting seasick!

Having been fishing in the area for more than 30 years, Steven has acquired vast experience and knowledge. He shares them with his guests to provide them with top-class on-the-beach adventures regardless of their age and skill levels. Thanks to his patience and teaching skills, you’ll have a great time learning how to land a terrific catch as well as to catch live bait, use the tackle, and get a good grasp of the local fishery.

The spots you’ll be fishing from include beaches, piers, the bay, and jetties. The guide will show you the best ways to reel in fish and help you experience the beauty of a hands-on approach. Put together his knowledge, expert techniques, and the rich fishery and you get the best chance for catching species such as Snook, Pompano, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, sharks, Flounder, Black Drum, and many more Floridian saltwater big-name species!

Things to keep in mind are that smoking and alcohol aren’t allowed on the beach. Also, you can keep your catch but the guide encourages releasing in order to preserve the fishery.

Coach Steve provides you with top-notch Penn gear, live bait, lures, and even filleting and bagging your catch. That said, just remember to bring your fishing licenses for the day. Though not mandatory, the usual 15-20% gratuity for your guide’s hard work would be highly appreciated!

Don’t miss this opportunity for having the fishing adventure of your life!

Captain Steve grew up in Southern California, and has always had a passion for saltwater activities: from fishing to surfing, scuba to spearfishing, and diving for Lobster! He has a true thirst for adventure, and this led him to the rugged, unspoiled beaches of Baja, Mexico. Baja proved to be a true fisherman's paradise, with incredible angling opportunities and lifelong memories. Now, he wants to help guests feel the same sense of adventure and excitement that he experienced in Baja – through experiencing Floridian fishing like never before, from the shoreline! Steve moved to Longboat Key, Florida, in 1992, and has an incredible, diverse fishery right on his doorstep. He can't wait to introduce you to it, all without a boat in sight. He also knows a lot about the local wildlife and loves telling guests about the nature around them as they fish, providing an experience that’s more than just fishing. Come and enjoy a truly unique Floridian experience with your own personal beach guide!
