Fishing Charter Advice

My husband and I are visiting Aug 27-Sep 3 and are looking for a fun fishing charter. Would like to try offshore, but I tend to get seasick. I did get a prescription for the patch but have never used it before, so I don't know how well it works. We are trying to decide between a private charter inshore or something like the Flying Fish Fleet which looks to be a larger "party boat." Any insight/advice would be greatly appreciated.

I know all the guys in this coupon book are first class and always get lots of fish. They are: Show Me the Fish charters and Cortez Kat. Both have outstanding reputations and even offer a deal here. www.sunsavercoupons.com

Let us know how the fishing is.

Have fun

If you're really worried about getting seasick, pier fishing in Anna Maria is really great option. Both Rod and Reel and City Pier have restaurant/bar and bathroom facilities. Rod and Reel has some helpful guys working the pier (and selling bait) who can tell you what's biting. My husband and I have caught more than 20 variety of fish from Rod and Reel...from flounder and mackerel to lady fish and shark. Also, the guys who work at Catchers next to the Holmes Beach fire station are very helpful ... they know what's biting and what you need to catch it. They have never tried to upsell us. Finally, surf fishing at Bean Point is a treat, too. Standing waist deep in the aqua water, you can see the fish approaching. Last year, manatee swam within feet of my husband and another guy who was fishing there, too.

Thank you all for your input. Now we just have to hope that "little storm" brewing in the Carribean doesn't hit while we are there :)
