Our captain is very familiar with the hot spots around the Sarasota area. He is very friendly and attentive and when all of our bait died due to red tide tainted water he found more bait fish quickly and we were up and running.
The big “keeper “fish were not biting but we did catch a number of snook one of which just missed the limit size. Still a very enjoyable experience.

I have been visiting Sarasota since I was a kid. I have always wanted to go out fishing in the bay but never seems to find the time. It took years and a wonderful tolerant wife to make it happen.  It was more than I hope for and Captain Tony was not only friendly and professional but informative. I not only learned the basics of salt water fishing but a lot about the local ecosystem. Novice or experienced TNT Charters is the place to go. Wonderful people great equipment and knowledge of the local waters and fish.

My wife and I had a fantastic time.  Captain Tony was awesome, friendly, energetic, awesome attitude, and fun.  Never waited more then 10 seconds before my hook to get new bait.  Experience was comfortable and relaxed, but when the fish were on; it was game time.  We saw parts of Sarasota that you never get to see.  Caught lots of fish….I think my wife out-fished me….:o)  TNT is our #1 Fishing Charter, and will recommend TNT to everyone we know!

We had the most amazing time today with Captain Tony! It had been a long time since I went salt water fishing and it was my girlfriends first time. Tony was patient and explained everything to us. He helped cast her rod and told me exactly where to cast mine. We ended up with some gorgeous trout and snapper. We also caught barracuda and snook! He knows where to go and will help you as much as you’ll let him! We couldn’t pick a better charter and plan to fish with him again.

My buddy and I are freshwater fishing guys who are just beginning to learn the saltwater game. We had a great time with Captain Tony Jr. trying to entice the Snook to bite and maybe happen upon a Redfish that wasn’t paying attention. Alas, neither of those species was interested, but we got acquainted with a really great guy who worked his tail off for us old costs and we came home with a nice catch of Speckled Trout. We had a fun trip and are already planning to repeat the quest next year.

We had a really freak cold front come in just after we started, which caused the fish to sit at the bottom and not bite. Tony, Jr. did an amazing job moving us around, trying to cast off the back to find the schools after setting us up, and trying any spot he had been successful recently, even revisiting spots when the weather got better. He tried at least 20 spots in our half day trip, and although he stayed positive, he was clearly upset that we only caught one small keeper. Afterwards, Tony, Sr. called me to apologize for the lack of success. Such amazing customer service!! I’d highly recommend TNT to anyone looking to fish in the Sarasota area!

I planned this trip for me and my 9-year-old son as an “extra” something do during our stay at the beach.  He loves to fish and has been freshwater fishing.  I am a beginner and have only fished twice in my life.  Tony took great care of us both.  He helped us cast and baited our hooks and literally tended to our every need.  He taught my son about the species of fish that we were catching and just was delightful and has a genuine love of fishing that is contagious! We both had a wonderful time and I am already planning our trip to the beach next summer to include another trip fishing with this group.  Thank you to both you guys.  We couldn’t have been more pleased with the whole experience.

Amazing trip! One of the best boat trips I’ve ever been on, and we caught some good trout! The day was hot and they weren’t biting as we hoped for so we got some action in little nooks thought the waterway every so often. Nonetheless, the time spent on the water with the captain was great! Wanted a red or two but they weren’t biting like we wanted them too. Caught a few Mangroves and those wonderful Catfish that impersonates the trout lol. He didn’t stop till we got a decent amount of keep on the boat and we ran till the last piece of bait!! All and all, an amazing trip and would highly recommend captain Tony again, 6 stars all around!!

We had a really good time.  Tony worked like crazy to find fish for us to catch. We caught a wide variety of fish and I got to enjoy a day on the water with my Dad and Nephew. I will do it again.

Captain Tony Jr was professional and extremely knowledgable.  He knew what type of fish we hooked by the way it pulled on the line.  We fished in many different areas and caught fish each time.  The boat and equipment where exceptional and it was a fun experience overall.  The price was excellent and we would highly recommend the excursion to anyone.  We will do it again the next time we’re in Florida.

Hi Rob, I’m sorry We didn’t provide a good experience for you, We always strive to keep you in the 95 % of our clients that give us outstanding reviews based on the time they had with TNT FREEDOM FISHING CHARTERS. Blessings Captain Tony Sr. :)

Captain Tony showed us a wonderful afternoon/evening.  He knew all the hot spots and honey holes around the channel.  And he does know his fish, their habits, their tendencies and how to catch them.  We would recommend Captain Tony to anyone and everyone, any age!  We’ll be sure to go out with him again next season!

Went fishing on Monday, March 21, 2016

I landed in Sarasota for a few days by myself and looked for a charter that I might fit into.  I found the TNT Freedom and went out on the 22’ Scout. Astonishingly, I had the boat to myself (and for a one person fair.)  Five hours of a great experience casting toward the mangroves and near oyster beds. Captain Tony knows these waters.  I recommend this boat without hesitation.

Memories are made from Dad’s and daughters and this trip was no exception. Captain Tony was patient teaching my 12 year old daughter how to cast properly and she was on fire catching 13 fish of different varieties and a keeper that we had for dinner! There is nothing like enjoying your own catch! We look forward to going on another trip when the Redeye’s start coming in and hopefully going out on the Gulf in the summer for some Marlin.

Nice boat clean and ready when we arrived. Good equipment. Despite lots of wind we were put on fish and caught lots of speckled trout, a jack, hooked a snook. Tony was a nice guy and very helpful. Would come back again.

Tony Jr. is a great guy to get out and go fishing with. He got us on fish and we caught plenty of fish and kept enough to fill our limit. We must have caught 75 fish the first time out and pretty close to that the second time. He will work hard to make sure you are on fish and catching them. I would highly recommend TNT Freedom Fishing Charters and I know I will be back on the water with Tony before February is over…those Redfish have got to come in soon and we are going to go get some.

I enjoyed their service enough that I went on a second trip that I booked directly with them a few days later.  Pros are that Tony Jr. knows where the fish usually are and exposed me to a variety of locations where different kids of fish were available.  Tony Sr. is very upbeat and has great analytic ability.  Cons are that the fish weren’t biting much although I caught several.  On second trip we didn’t have any shiners or sardines or whatever they are.  We only had shrimp.  On a few occasions Tony Jr. remarked that the fish were probably looking for the shiners.  This was disheartening that we didn’t go out with all of the tools needed to catch the fish.  Overall, a very enjoyable experience.  I would certainly consider using them again if I choose to fish in the area south of Longboat Key.

GREAT DAY WITH YOU STEVE, HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN IN THE SPRING, REGARDS CAPTAIN TONY ;)

Went fishing on Monday, January 4, 2016

Captain Tony was on time with a clean well prepared boat upon our arrival.  The boat was well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy a great day of fishing. All the equipment was in good shape and Captain Tony was prepared with everything before we arrived. Charter left on time and we were fishing within 15 minutes.  Captain set us up with different baits until he found the magic.  We began to catch fish immediately and continued to haul them in all day long. We caught our limit which did not count the nearly 60-70 fish we released.  At the end of the trip, the Captain Tony cleaned our fish and thanked us for the charter.  That evening we cooked the fish, made mango salsa with some spicy slaw and some of the most amazing fish tacos you have ever had in your life.  Fresh spotted trout fish tacos that were so fresh they just melted in your mouth.  Thanks to Captain Tony we had a great day of fishing and fed our entire family a fish taco dinner they will never forget.  We will definitely recommend Captain Tony and plan to book another day trip in the near future.  Chris Ellis

GLAD YOU ENJOYED YOUR DAY. HONERED TO BE PART OF IT. THANKS FOR THE KIND WORDS CAPTAIN TONY :)

Went fishing on Saturday, December 26, 2015

I had a very nice afternoon on a very new and clean boat.
The captain was very courteous (“It’s your boat”) and helped a lot getting me on the fish.
He provided live and artificial bait and knows numerous fishing spots.
We had a nice talk and relaxing afternoon in the ICW of Sarasota near Osprey.
Although it was a difficult day for fishing (summer degrees in winter with irritated fish) he managed me to catch fish.
I can definitely recommend this charter and will book it again - if time allows - next week.
