Livin’ The Dream Fishing Charters
One of our top picks in Sarasota. Sarasota and Bradenton hold some of Florida’s best fishing grounds, and Captain Jon has 30 years experience catching fish in the area. He welcomes you aboard his boat to explore the inshore flats or the offshore reefs and see why this is considered one of the best places in the world to take a fun, family fishing trip.
Your trip will take place aboard a sturdy 22 ft Cape Craft center console that has been recently restored in 2015 to make it one of the safest flats boats you can find in the area. With a GPS, fishfinder, and two VHF radios, it is ready and raring to take you on the trip of a lifetime. With room for up to four anglers, an ice box for your drinks and a live bait tank to give you the best chance of successful hook ups, the boat is well suited for a charter fishing trip.
Captain Jon offers a variety of trips, allowing you to take your pick depending on the style of fishing your prefer. You may choose to fish the beautiful bays and flats for Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Tarpon, troll near the shore for King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, and Cobia, or bottom fish over the reefs for Snappers and Groupers. Live bait is included in the price, as are artificial lures in case you want to try a variety of fishing styles.
On return to the dock Captain Jon will gladly clean and fillet your fish to take home for dinner. His strong emphasis on safety and detailed local knowledge will ensure your trip is one to remember!

My husband and I went on a morning half day trip with Jon for my husbands birthday. The adventure was even better than I’d expected! Jon was experienced yet patient, fun and easy going. He took us to multiple fishing spots, from a grassy spot in the bay to a reef in the gulf. We caught fish in all locations! Jon made me feel super comfortable, even as a first time angler. My husband hasn’t fished in years; he had a great time casting in different locations and catching different kinds of fish. I would highly recommend joining Captain Jon for a fishing adventure in Sarasota!!

Captain Jon was so much fun, he had us laughing the whole time! He was a great educator and really took time to make sure everyone was taken care of and had the best experience. This was our first experience on a trip like this as a family and we are looking forward to doing it again. We recommend Captain Jon to anyone wanting to have a great time fishing.

Friendly Captain, we caught lots of fish. The boat was not in the best of shape but ,overall, we had a fun trip. The Captain arrived early and we were able to get on the water earlier than our expected time which meant more fish caught during the morning bite.
