Overview

For a fishing adventure in the Sarasota area that you won’t soon forget – book a charter with Captain Tony Blizzard. The Sarasota, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, Bradenton, and Venice, Florida areas offer some of the best light-tackle sportfishing on the west coast of Florida. Among the fish we can encounter are spotted seatrout, redfish, flounder, snapper, sheepshead, pompano, and Spanish mackerel. In addition, the close reefs in the Gulf of Mexico offer even more fish including grouper, snapper, sharks, porgys, sea bass, and key west grunts. Bring the family along for a fun-filled day of fishing. Saltwater fishing is fun and it's easy for everyone to learn and catch fish. Most kids love fishing in saltwater because there’s usually a lot of action, so they don’t get bored. Please let me know in advance if you’re bringing very small anglers, so I can come prepared with smaller and lighter-weight rods.

Perfect day out of the water. Capt. Tony took us out to the perfect fishing spot. Everyone on the boat hooked their share of fish and had such a great time! It was everything we had hoped for. Thank you, Capt. Tony!
