Fish the inland and coastal waters of Manatee and Sarasota Counties with Dorado Jim’s Fishing Charters! Offering top-level inshore fishing charters, Captain Jim Savaglio will not only show you his tried and tested techniques, but will also share his knowledge of the area’s beautiful surroundings and wildlife with everyone who comes on board his boat.
You will be fishing aboard a 24’ center console boat, built by Dorado Holdings but completely designed by the captain alongside the manufacturer. Equipped with a Mercury Optimax 225 and custom Morse Throttle controls, the boat gives a powerful ride, handling chop well while also being comfortable in less than 12 inches of water.
This makes it perfect for fishing both inshore and nearshore, allowing you to make the most of your time on the water in Holmes Beach, Florida. The boat is fitted with an 8’ Power Pole anchoring system, and it features a custom tower for excellent sight fishing.
There is a huge casting deck and plenty of storage, making this a comfortable vessel for up to 2 anglers on charter trips. All tackle, bait, and licensing is included, and the captain will also gladly clean and bag your fish at the end of the trip so that you can take it home for a delicious meal after a day of fun.
During your trip, you’ll be fishing with a variety of weights of tackle, with both conventional and spinning gear available. Possible target fish include Redfish, Snook, Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, Snapper, and Mackerel. Anglers of all levels are welcome on board, especially children.
Join Dorado Jim’s Fishing Charters, and have a wonderful fishing experience under the Floridian sun!
