Anna Maria Island Fishing Charters

Anna Maria Island, Florida is surrounded by some of the best fishing waters out of Tampa Bay. An inshore fishery that contains grass flats, backcountry mangrove systems, and backwater systems that are all fed directly by the Gulf of Mexico. And, direct access to coastal fishing, nearshore, and offshore opportunities.

Anna Maria Island is also one of our favorite Tarpon fisheries for both resident juveniles, alongside those migrating monsters that run through here yearly.

Whether you are looking to fish for a specific species of fish, or catch as many different kinds of fish as possible, Capt. Jason is the Anna Maria Island fishing guide who can put you on them.

Anna Maria Island’s popular inshore game fish.

There are tons of different inshore game fish to fish for but these three make up the Anna Maria Island “inshore slam”.


Famous for their “bulldog” style of fighting, redfish roam the flats of BradentonĀ in schools anywhere from a few fish to 1000’s of fish. They are strong fighters, plentiful in number, and they are great table fare.


“Line Siders” are the undisputed champs of the flats. They can exhibit blistering runs as they try to break you off on structure. There’s a reason they are the most sought after shallow water game fish in all of Florida.


Sea Trout are our most reliable game fish on the flats and bite well year ’round. Big trout are considered “gators” and can pull drag just like a redfish. They are great table fare and quite often can be caught in huge numbers.

Anna Maria Island Florida Fishing

The Anna Maria Island area is located between the Gulf of Mexico and Palma Sola Bay. The island includes popular areas such as Holmes and Bradenton Beaches. This is a diverse estuary with both amazing inshore fishing along the flats and backcountry, as well as a quick trip to a very productive nearshore fishery.

This area is known for great year-round fishing and is home to redfish, snook, tarpon, and sea trout.

Anna Maria Island is also part of the massive Tampa Bay estuary system but houses its own unique water flows and shallow water features.
