With captains Tony Sr. and Tony Jr, it’s not just about fishing, it’s about learning and understanding the sport.

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 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 the speeds of up to 52 knots. The vessel is rigged with GPS, a fishfinder, has a trolling motor, features outriggers, and a live bait well. The fishing is best done with up to four anglers onboard.

You will be fishing bay and back waters, searching for the likes of Amerjack, Sharks, Grouper, 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 onboard, you will get the rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. The captain will provide the fishing license and will serve some drinks onboard. You can keep the catch and will get it cleaned and filleted. The TNT Freedom Fishing Charters work together with their partners in the Hidden Harbor Marina Sarasota, and recommend 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.
