What anglers said about fishing in Manasota Key

Our half day charter on March 16 was fantastic. MM Charters was the best charter I've ever been on with a knowledgeable, friendly, patient Captain. Best part of our 10 day vacation!

Yes...stayed a little South in Estero and had never heard of Englewood Florida before this trip. Boat leaves from a great spot...the Captain's little piece of Nirvana...a cute home right on the water and just a stone's throw from fishing...

Just do it, you won't be disappointed but remember you can't catch anything without a hook in the water.

Try different types of fishing. On shore from beach you never know what you will catch. It is my favorite way to fish while relaxing in the sun with a drink! There are plenty of small fish along the shore for youngsters to catch using small hooks and frozen shrimp. it is non-stop action.

Only thing I was disappointed about was I didn't know that I should only have a fishing party of 4. I had 6 so we took turns fishing. It worked and captain Tim was very accomodating. We had a great time. I wish there was a way I could tell what the max fishing lines on boats are before booking.

Fishing is just like any other sport. There are no guarantees but if you book with Fin Crazy Charters and Captain Ryan you are sure to have an incredible experience!

July heat will make the fish sluggish but they're out there! Suggest night time.

Book a trip with Captain Ryan at Fin Crazy Charters. Also bring a few poles and fish from the beach. The snook fishing is very good. I mainly threw a 3/8 oz. jighead with a 4" grub. In the morning and evenings, the snook are extremely close to the shore. Within 5 feet of the beach. Took me awhile to figure out they were that close. Would catch 4 or 5 every morning and again in the evening and an occasional redfish as well.

Don't take a bunch of stuff on the boat. A couple of bottles of water per person, maybe a small snack. A small hand towel, sunglasses, camera and a hat. Sunscreen is a must. Leave the rest up to your Captain. Also, Captain Ryan Riegsecker, The Royal Palm Marina and Snook's Bayside Bar and Grill.
