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!

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing aboard a Nokomis fishing charter, you don’t have to worry about anything, as most of them will provide you with a fishing license. Note that some species like Tarpon and Red Snapper have strict regulations, so make sure to consult your guide about this.

Temperatures may be cool, but inshore fishing really heats up in the winter months here, and January is no exception! The flats are full of Snook, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout.


Inshore fishing remains strong, with trophy-sized Redfish and Snook lurking around the North Jetty. Amberjacks start patrolling the wrecks and reefs, with Grouper species on offer, too.


March starts with a “Wahoo!” – this hard-fighting fish can be found offshore, and Blackfin Tuna are starting to show up, too. Inshore, Redfish and Spotted Seatrout are staying strong.

Here comes the Silver King season! Anglers who want to earn serious bragging rights should grab their spinning gear and head to the flats to battle Florida’s famous Tarpon.

Seasoned anglers recommend sticking to nearshore and offshore waters as the weather heats up – luckily, there are plenty of first-class fish on offer, including Amberjack, Cobia, Tuna, and Sailfish.


It’s officially Red Snapper season! Huge specimens of this species can be found lurking around the local reefs, along with Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper. Further offshore, Tuna and Sailfish are waiting for you.


Summer is at its peak, and so is the fishing on offer! Offshore, hook Sailfish, huge Tuna, and Mahi Mahi. The reefs are abundant with Snapper, Amberjack, and Cobia, while Tarpon and Snook inhabit the flats.


Take advantage of summer vacation, and introduce your kids to fishing the Nokomis way! Tarpon and Snook inhabit the bays and flats, and fun-to-catch species such as Cobia and Barracuda can be found nearshore.


Nokomis’s inshore waters boast plenty of hard-fighting Snook year-round, but September is the month to visit if you want to battle and keep this Floridian favorite!


Snook fishing stays strong, with trophy-sized varieties inhabiting the flats and bays. Reef fishing offers up plenty of action, too, with Kingfish, Cobia, and Snapper all up for grabs.

The weather starts cooling down, but Nokomis is home to year-round fishing opportunities, and November offers up awesome inshore angling! Redfish, Tarpon, Snook, Black Drum, and plenty more can be found.
