Welcome to Captain Nate’s Fishing Guide & Charter Services
I am a Florida born, U.S. Coast Guard Licensed (#USA00016405), and Insured captain. Since arriving in Manatee County Florida in 1985, I have been fishing the waters of Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, Sarasota Bay, Tampa Bay, and the surrounding areas. Running Fishing Guide & Charter Services to deliver customer purchased boats anywhere desired, as well as, providing a variety of pleasure boat cruises. The fishing charters are tailored to accommodate small groups or large corporate events. And might entail several boats to fit your needs. Personally, I love introducing children to inshore fishing; I encourage you to bring your children, I would love to have them aboard.
Anna Maria Island, Bradenton & Sarasota
We will be fishing in the waters of beautiful Sarasota Bay, Tampa Bay and the adjacent waters surrounding Anna Maria Island; depending on the time of year or targeted fish species. When fishing for snook, redfish, or trout you will be using top of the line 7’6” St. Croix rods with Daiwa spinning reels. For tarpon, cobia, or inshore grouper you will be using 7’6’ rods with 50 pound class spinning reels. If you wish to fish with your own equipment, please let me know in advance, I’ll make room for your rods.
After a day on the water, you’ll understand why I love fishing and guiding in Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, and Sarasota waters.~ Captain. Nate
