January

If you’re fishing inshore, expect to reel in Snook, Tarpon, Spotted Seatrout, and Redfish. Sheepshead and Spanish Mackerel are biting hot, and Black and Red Grouper are great targets as well.

February

Hit the calm inshore waters for a chance to reel in Redfish, Sheepshead, and Snook, while the Amberjack bite is heating up in the reefs. Spend a relaxing day in nature, and recharge your batteries!

March

Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, and Redfish are all great inshore targets, while heading nearshore gives you a chance to reel in Kingfish and Jack Crevalle. Offshore, Wahoo is starting to bite and you’ll spot the occasional Blackfin Tuna.

April

As the fishing season starts to heat up, Black Drum, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Snook, and Tarpon are dominating the inshore waters. Expect to catch some Barracuda, King Mackerel, Bonito, and Amberjack a little further out.

May

Tarpon and Snook are abundant inshore at this time of the year, and Amberjack is a great target in the reefs. The bite is also great for Cobia, Jack Crevalle, and Black Grouper. An offshore trip will have you battling Sailfish and Blackfin Tuna!

June

With the Red Snapper season arriving, reef fishing is at its best! Other targets include Cobia, Yellowtail Snapper, and Mahi Mahi. Inshore you’ll find that Snook, Tarpon, and Redfish are all possible catches.

July

With the fishing season in full swing, Sailfish and Blackfin Tuna are prized species you can target offshore, alongside Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Jack Crevalle, and Grouper. Inshore, Permit, Snook, and Tarpon are biting hot.

Venice fishing in August is great wherever you decide to go. Sailfish and Blackfin Tuna are possible catches offshore, and Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, Cobia, and Mahi Mahi are all biting as well. Inshore you still have the chance to reel in Permit, Snook, and Tarpon.

King and Spanish Mackerel are both biting in September, if you want to hit up the reefs and wrecks. If you want to spend the day closer to shore, there’s a variety of species you can target including Redfish, Tarpon, Permit, and Black Drum.

With the fall slowly coming to an end, inshore fishing will still yield a productive day out, while Black and Red Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, and King Mackerel are still biting a little further from the shore.

We had a very good time with Captain Mike. He was extremely good with our 5 & 10 year olds. We all learned a lot about fishing in salt water and the fish we caught. I fried up a mean hearty supper that night with his suggestions.

So my son had just had his bday and we were here for spring break. My son said I just want to catch fish. He didn’t have any hopes or dreams. He was thrilled the whole day and loved every part of the trip. He ended up being to busy catching fish to care that he didn’t eat lunch

Captain Camille was fantastic with my grandkids as well as my son and daughter in law. Grandkids never fished from a boat on open water and it was a great success. Captain Camille was fantastic with a six year old boy who caught the biggest “keeper” and my 10 year old granddaughter caught a couple of keepers. My son hooked and brought in a smal/medium tarpon. Just an unforgettable experience and captain Camille was just the best

If the Captain calls you and tells you the waves are pretty high 2 to 4 ft.,take the advice! I had never experienced sea sickness so I did not know if I would. I know now. Captain was great about it.

Our recently graduated granddaughter got to crank on a variety of fish from small grouper to grunts and a couple of jumbo lane snapper. Capt. Adria is a pro who has fishing in her blood and an obvious love of nature. Even the proud, long-time fishing grandparents added trigger fish to our list. Above all, Capt. Adria is a great host who focused on safety, good fishing and fun. Thanks for the great Florida Gulf memories, Joe, Gloria and Sarina Morales Lancaster/York, PA

Our family loves to fish, but we are no experts. And we appreciate when captain or crew are super helpful. That is Captain Adria. Allow rhe fish were there....they were not biting as expected. Adria did everything to see that we got some fish...thanks to her we had a lovely day. Would definitely go again, if I am in the Sarasota area...

He did an amazing job with the little kids and even us big ones. He was very patient with the little ones not being patient. Even though it was a slow day catching fish he made sure we caught fish. I would recommend him for any group of people and will be using him again myself.

It pays to go with the best. Captain Hugh knows where the fish are and brings you straight to them. We caught a bunch of snappers and undersized groupers. The 32' Scorpian is a great boat, quick and agile. I will definitely be booking this charter on a regular basis.
