Capt. Nate Fishing Guide & Charters

770 Manatee Avenue West
Holmes Beach FL, United States

Captain Nate Weissman provides a first class fishing and guiding service in the waters of Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, Sarasota Bay, Tampa Bay, and the surrounding areas. He is a generous person and an established captain who loves spending time on the water with his guests. He regularly operates charitable trips for children with serious illnesses.

Captain Nate will take you fishing on his 22 foot Century saltwater fishing boat, originally built in 2007, and restored in 2016. This beauty is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine, and makes for a smooth and comfortable ride on the chop. It is equipped with all the latest electronics and safety equipment, as well as a fighting chair, an icebox for the catch.

The boat also contains a Motorguide XI5 wireless trolling motor, which makes it very quiet in the shallow waters in order not to spook the fish and maximise your chance of catch them.

You will target species such as Redfish, Bonito, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Spotted Seatrout, the super delicious Tripletail, and the king of shallow water fight - the Tarpon. Captain Nate will, of course, advise you which fish are in season and where they are located so you can go there to fish for them.

Captain Nate is a Florida-born, U.S. Coast Guard Licensed (#USA00016405), and Insured captain. He has fished the Manatee County waters since 1985 that include Anna Maria Island, Sarasota Bay, Bradenton, Tampa Bay, and the surrounding areas. He makes each charter a tailor-made experience to accommodate his guests’ needs.

He loves introducing children to inshore fishing, and always encourages parents to bring the kids along for a fun and educational time on the water. You are welcome to bring your own fishing gear, just make sure you let Captain Nate know in advance, so he can make room for your rods.
