    I am going to sarasota the end of august. I am going to surf fish no matter what but I wanted to look into chartering a boat to go shark fishing. Wanted advice on if it is worth the money if anybody has ever been. and any recomendations on companies if anyone has any
  2. Save your money and fish the beach at night! It's just like fishing for catfish w/teeth........

    Captain Matt is out of Ana Maria Island area. Great guide and he will tell you the straight story on what's worth fishing for. Not cheap but he is one of the best. Snook, Trout, Redfish, and offshore depending on time of year.

    We fish off Longbaot Key from shore - snook, pompano, small sharks, misc. Also, the tampa skyway bridge fishing pier can be good for a wide variety - about 40 minute drive from Sarasota.

    Here is a video on a Tarpon he put my son on.

    Send me a PM if you want more info.
  4. late august the snook should still be running the beaches, fish at night with plugs or swimbaits, they put every other gamefish to shame.
