TNT Freedom Fishing Charters – Siesta Key

TNT Freedom Fishing Charters LLC runs private fishing trips around the diamond blue waters of the Siesta Key. Here you will find an experienced crew, a stable boat, big fish, and enjoyable trips. With captains Tony Sr. and Tony Jr, it’s not just about fishing, it’s about learning and understanding the sport.

TNT Freedom Fishing crew has had numerous repeat customers onboard. They have been running trips for years and catered to both novice and pro anglers. These inshore waters offer productive fishing and smiling anglers – just have a look at the photos and reviews, and you’ll see why anglers what to fish again with the TNT Freedom Fishing crew.

The fishing is great year-round, and the crew has the right vessel to put you on fish. You will join Captain Tony aboard his 22’ Scout center console. She is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and can reach speeds of up to 52 knots. The vessel is rigged with GPS, a fishfinder, and has a trolling motor, power pole, and live bait well. The fishing is best done with up to 4 anglers on board.

You will be fishing bay and backwaters, searching for the likes of Snook, Trout, Redfish, Tarpon, and more. Whether you choose trolling, bottom fishing, fishing on the fly, popping, or jigging, the crew’s got you covered. Fly anglers should bring their own gear.

When you come aboard, you will get the rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. The captain will provide the fishing license and will serve some drinks on board. You can keep the catch and he will get it cleaned and filleted. The TNT Freedom Fishing Charters works together with its partners in the Hidden Harbor Marina Sarasota and recommends a restaurant to cook you a meal from the fish you catch.

You should bring a cap, sunglasses, sunblock, put on comfortable clothes and footwear, pack some snacks, and take your camera with you. There is a 20% discount for all veterans.
