Top Fishing Charters in Nokomis


Just a stone’s throw away from Sarasota, this peaceful Floridian town is the perfect laid-back vacation spot. A Nokomis fishing adventure has everything you’d want on a relaxing day out – crystal clear waters, beautiful sandy beaches, and rich marine life. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and explore some of the most beautiful natural reefs and shallow bays in Florida.

Booking a half day trip in the flats and backwaters of Nokomis is great for spending some quality family time, or just having a relaxing time to refresh. Sink your line right upon leaving the dock and reel in species like Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Red and Black Drum, as well as the “Silver King.” With Boca Grande a short boat ride away, catching some trophy Tarpon has never been easier!

Hit the reefs to target Grouper, King Mackerel, Cobia, Amberjack, and the prized Red Snapper, or head out to the really deep waters for your chance to bag some Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Sailfish. Opt for a full day or longer if you want to reach offshore fishing grounds and have enough time to reel in some of these monster specimens.

Known as a fishing haven, there’s no shortage of charters ready to take you out in Nokomis. Head down to the docks on Roberts bay and take your pick, or drive along the Venetian Waterway Park for some more choices. There’s a variety of charters leaving from Nokomis Beach Boat Ramp, so get ready to have fun!
