Welcome To Sarasota Bay Fishing ChartersFor a fishing adventure in the Sarasota area you won’t soon forget – book a charter with Captain Tony Blizzard.


I offer salt water light-tackle sportsfishing charters for Sarasota, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, Bradenton and Venice Florida.

The Sarasota area offers some of the best light-tackle sport fishing on the west coast of Florida. Among the fish we can encounter are spotted seatrout, redfish, flounder, snapper, sheepshead, pompano, Spanish mackerel and many more.


In addition, The close reefs in the Gulf of Mexico offer many more fish including grouper, snapper, sharks, porgys, sea bass, and key west grunts.

Spend the trip on a top of the line fishing platform.


My 23' center console Panga Marquesas is one of the most fishable bay and coastal guide boats in the Sarasota area that can fish all of the skinny water and back water on Sarasota bay plus the coastal offshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico. You can mix your fishing up with a little inshore and offshore in the same trip.

With a very large variety of fish in this area, this boat will allow you to fish the shallow grass flats for Trout and Redfish or move to the docks and Mangroves for Snook.


Welcome To Sarasota Bay Fishing ChartersA family friendly fishing charter

Bring the family along for a fun filled day of fishing. Saltwater fishing is fun and it is very easy for everyone to learn and to catch fish.


Most kids love fishing in saltwater because there’s usually a lot of action, so they don’t get bored with the trip. Please let me know in advance if you’re bringing very small anglers, so I can come prepared with smaller and lighter-weight rods for them. Their fishing experience will be much more enjoyable with fishing gear that matches their size.

Whether you are an experienced fisherman or have never fished in saltwater before and would like some instructions, I can put together a great trip for you.

There are a lot of fish in our waters and normally something is always biting. It is all about having fun, catching fish, and enjoying a great day on the water in beautiful Sarasota, Florida.

Whether you need to book a charter, plan your own fishing trip or just need some local information, I invite you to look through my site and feel free to contact me.


Why we go fishing?


Experienced sport fishermen and beginning anglers all go fishing for the same reasons – for the fun of fishing and to enjoy a nice day on or around the water.

When fishing, we always hope for “the big one”; the exciting thing about every fishing trip is that you never know when it’s going to come. When I am fishing, I like to think that every time I cast my line into the water it could be the biggest fish of my life!

One day you could fill the cooler and the next day could be a little slow.
