Wildman Adventures

752 manatee avenue west, Holme…
Holmes Beach FL, United States

Come aboard with Wildman Adventures and catch some of Florida’s most popular fish! Capt. Wes Wildman is an experienced guide who grew up fishing the waters of Sarasota and Tampa Bay. You can join him on Anna Maria Island, where your fishing adventure begins.

Step aboard a 22’ Mako boat powered by a 225 HP Suzuki engine. This craft comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, and a wireless trolling motor. On board you will find a live-bait well and an ice box to store your catch. This boat has room for four anglers, and children age five and older are welcome.

While fishing with Capt. Wes you can try your hand at numerous techniques, from spinning and drift fishing to jigging, popping, and trolling. Depending on conditions and your personal interests, he can help you target species both inshore and nearshore.

Join him fishing inshore and he will take you through the intercoastal waterways of Sarasota and Tampa Bay. While fishing grass flats and mangrove islands, you can target Snook, Redfish, and Speckled Trout. You can also fish the artificial reefs of Sarasota Bay for Snappers, Groupers, and more.

Capt. Wes may also take you nearshore for more variety, where you can fish natural and artificial reefs for Grouper, Snapper, Hogfish, Kingfish and many other species.

Wildman Adventures provides a fishing license, rods, reels and tackle. You can keep your catch and Capt. Wes will clean and fillet it for you. He promises he will do his best to put meat in the boat—so come and join him for a wild adventure!
