Capt. Nate Fishing Guide & Charters

1059 North Tamiami Trail
Sarasota FL, United States

Captain Nate Weissman is a Florida native fishing guide who provides unforgettable fishing adventures in Tampa Bay, Sarasota, Bradenton and Anna Maria Island areas. He will take you fishing for the best inshore and nearshore species such as Redfish, Sheepshead, and Tarpon.

Fishing with Captain Nate, who’s been fishing the Florida waters since 1985, you will learn about the area, its fisheries, and all things fishing. He is an expert when it comes to catching fish, and is also a very generous person who takes seriously ill children on free fishing trips each month, in order to spread positivity and inject excitement in their lives. 

The East Coast of Florida is so rich in fish species, that you can lose count of the number you see and catch. Spanish Mackerel, Tripletail, Spotted Seatrout, Jack Crevalle and many more can be found right where Captain Nate will take you.

You will fish aboard his 22 foot Century saltwater fishing boat, originally built in 2007, and restored in 2016. It is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine and very reliable on the water. The speedy boat will whisk you off to the productive grounds, where, using the onboard GPS and a fishfinder, you’ll locate the fish quite easily.

When Tarpon is in season, you will have a fighting chair available on board, as no other fish fight quite like Tarpon. This majestic, ancient fish will show you what a real exercise is and provide lifelong memories. You will fish using 7’6’ rods with 50-pound class spinning reels for Tarpon, Cobia, and other big fish.

You are also welcome to bring your own gear, just make sure to let Captain Nate know in advance, so he can make room for your equipment on the boat. At the end of your trip, Captain Nate will clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home for dinner.

My family moved to the Anna Maria area in 1985. I grew up fishing our local waters and developed a passion for light tackle inshore fishing immediately.
