Locally Owned and Operated Fishing Charters

Do you have small kids and don’t think they can do the typical 4 hour fishing trip? 

Are you a group of adults looking for a no-pressure, reasonably priced fishing trip? 

Then this is the perfect trip for you!  This Family Fun Fishing is a private charter catered to just your group.  On the 23 Aquasport you will head out to the fishing  grounds, Either a couple hundred yards off the beach in the gulf, or tucked in Sarasota Bay.  The focus on these trips is quantity over quality, designed to keep the attention of smaller children. 

Leaving from YOLO’s Green Floating Office next to Bridge Tender Inn at the end of Bridge Street.

It is also a great trip for anyone who “just wants to catch something”.  If you’ve caught enough fish for the day and still have time left, Captain Anthony would be happy to take you in search of dolphins or a nice sandbar to explore.  All gear and licensing necessary for fishing will be provided as well as ice cold bottled water.  No experience necessary for this trip.   CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY!

Not for avid anglers.

Maximum of 6 people.
