My son, his buddy and I had a fantastic time with Tony Jr. He worked exceptionally hard to find the fish for us. It was a very windy day, and Tony worked around those challenges and found the fish that were biting. We had two huge dinners from the catch (Pompano, Speckled Trout, Snapper). I would recommend TnT anytime, anywhere. We will absolutely be back. Also, it was great getting to know Tony…just a fantastic person. Thank you Tony Jr and Tony Sr!!

TNT Freedom Fishing is run by Captain Tony and his son, Tony Jr. I booked far in advance and as the trip approached, Captain Tony and I got in touch to talk about the weather and current fishing conditions. Easily coordinated a meet up time and place. They have their boats docked in a nice marina with easy parking right onsite. Top notch bay boat, equipment and gear. I usually tend to bring my own when I fish and I did this time but next time, I don’t think it’s necessary. Great rods/reels in good condition with fresh line. My wife and I went out with Captain Tony Jr. - very personable and pleasure to fish with. He knows the local waters really and when we got out of the no wake zone, we were on the Trout almost immediately. Conditions weren’t the best but as a fisherman, you always have to figure it out. We moved around to a few other spots and picked up fish in each spot. My wife landed a really nice Sheephead which was a nice little treat for the table. I would absolutely recommend fishing with TNT Freedom Fishing. I know who I’m calling next time I take a drive out to Siesta Key…..great trip.
