Sport Fisherman in Sarasota, Florida, United States
Enjoy Sarasota Florida, United States by boat! Rent a Sport Fisherman for up to 6 people. Rates as low as $2000 per day. Rates: • $2000 per day What We Catch: Sharks Including bulls, blacktips, tigers, hammerheads, makos, and more. Makos are caught year round, but to target these large predators the ideal time of year is November through May. An overnight charter trip is ideal but it can be done in an all day excursion. These fish are large predators and are not measured in numbers but in encounters. Mako's are the fastest shark in the ocean and are capable of leaping over twenty feet in the air. Grouper Grouper has been great all summer; catching scamp groupers, reds and Gags. We are gearing up for Gags to open this Sept. 16th. The season will be open for two months - bummer only 60 days but they are out there for the taking. We also catch and release plenty of Goliath groupers, up to 400lbs, all year long in the waters of Siesta Key. Snapper We catch a variety of snapper while fishing Siesta Key. However American red snappers are only open for harvest during the summer months. When they are open for harvest, they are plentiful, and limits can be easily met on an average charter fishing day. The rest of the year, mangroves and yellowtail snappers are acceptable to catch and keep. Wahoo Wahoo charter fishing starts to get going in May and continues through summer. The best time of year however is the fall. This fish is an excellent fighter and a sushi grade catch. Mahi Mahi Dolphin or Dorado Siesta Key charter fishing offers many colorful fish like Mahi. Mahi fishing season is summer and fall and is fairly consistent in the deepwater all summer long. Blue Marlin A charter fishing trip for a Blue Marlin is the ultimate in pursuit of the big game catch. Marlin charter fishing season is spring through fall with the fish biting more aggressively around the full moon. Swordfish Swordfishing is a night fishery and very productive at these times. These gladiators of Siesta Key fight hard and are a very fine fish to bring to the table. Tuna We offer blackfin tunas all year long on our all day charter trips but the ideal time is spring through fall. We also catch yellowfin tuna on our bluewater trips. We seasonally operate out of Grand Isle, Louisiana targeting large yellowfins up to 200 lbs. Call for seasonal travel schedule.

FAQs What is the Deposit? Will we get a refund of our deposit if we cancel our trip? Each trip requires a $100 deposit at booking. You must cancel your trip at least 48 hours in advance to get a refund of your deposit. What Should I Bring? When fishing Siesta Key with Double Nickel Charters, bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat and whatever you'd like to eat & drink (no glass bottles, please). We'll provide you with fishing licenses, lifevests, ice, bait, tackle and all the equipment you'll need to have a great trip! Deck shoes are appreciated, but not required no workboots or dark rubber soles, as they scuff up the deck of the boat. What Can I Do to Avoid Getting Seasick? If you think you might be prone to seasickness while fishing, speak to your physician about Scopolamine patches to wear behind your ear. Generally, a dramamine the night before, and the morning of - will be plenty to keep you grounded! Bring some gingerale to drink, it also helps! Is There A Bathroom? No worries, there is a head on board! What Should I Tip the Crew? Mates work for tips. Their job is very demanding day in and day out with no vacation days. If the weather is good, our mates are working and their responsibilities begin before you arrive to the boat and continue with boat work long after your fishing day is over. A tip of 20% is the customary amount to say thanks for a job well done!
