Graham Slam Fishing Charters

4628 119th Street West
Cortez FL, United States

Captain Nick and Captain Aaron Graham both grew up fishing the beautiful waters of Sarasota Bay to Tampa Bay, catching Snook,Trout, Redfish, Tarpon and everything else that swims.  Both are highly knowledgeable of the area surrounding Anna Maria Island and are looking forward to welcoming visiting anglers aboard their boat.

The Grahams’ boat is just what you need to catch the fish of your dreams. The “Dreamcatcher” is a 222 Aquasport powered by a 175 HP Suzuki Four Stroke that will get you to the honey holes fast and safely. It features a Sea Claw anchoring system and has a tower with controls for great sight fishing. Restored in 2016, the boat is ready to take you for an unforgettable experience on the water.

With Cherokee bloodlines tracing all the way back to Pocahontas, the Graham brothers deeply respect the environment and all the local wildlife. They will gladly show you dolphins, manatees, and a whole host of other native Florida species during their trips and, at the same time, they will lead you to the best fishing spots in the area. So, if you’d like to have an unforgettable saltwater experience and catch the best sunset on the Gulf, they would be more than happy to take you out and show you all this area has to offer.

About the Captain

Nicholas Graham
Cortez, Florida, United States
Member since June 2016
Born and raised in Bradenton I have fished these waters my entire life. From Tampa Bay to Sarasota Bay countless hours of my childhood have been spent on the water learning the sand bars and back water.I've always have had a passion for fishing and being on the water. The earliest memories I have are going fishing with my dad and playing with the bait in the livewell. Going out in the afternoons after school and catching snook, trout, and redfish right in our backyard are moments I will cherish forever.

Captain Nick was nothing short of awesome. He made an extreme novice (my gf) a wana be angler. She never wanted for bait, he put us in great fishing and she was on fish for hours. Our agreement was for 4 hours but Nick kept us going for nearly 6. What a day and thanks Nick, we will look you up again! Cannot say how much fun we had.

Captain Nick was very attentive.  Always ready with fresh bait to keep us on the bite.  Sight fishing on the flats was exciting.  We saw some nice large Snook, several sharks and rays.  We caught a nice variety of fish.

Capt Nick was great! Professional & friendly. The trip was for me & my 8 yr old son, Captain Nick made sure we caught fish & had a great time. He was incredibly attentive helping my son and teaching us about the fish and the area. He provided us with an experience that will be an enduring special memory! Not only that, he texted us afterwards with advice on how to cook the fish we caught as well as suggestions of outdoor fun that he thought my son & I would enjoy. He went above and beyond!!! We will definitely fish w Captain Nick again!
