Sarasota Florida Fishing



Welcome to flats and backcountry fishing in Sarasota Florida. 

One of the most unique and distinguished fishing destinations in the world lies just outside my back door on the southwest coast of Florida. Fishing Sarasota, Charlotte Harbor and Tampa Bay's flats and backcountry is a testament to the past, a view of Florida as it might have looked one hundred years earlier.

 Fishing deep in the backcountry you'll see miles of mangrove trees, large expanses of grass flats and maybe an old fish house or two. You'll see oyster bars, sand bars and areas that look so fishy you can't resist a cast into them. And rightfully so.

 These are the homes and hangouts of some of the best game fish Florida has to offer. Redfish, snook, tarpon and trout inhabit these waters and, under the right conditions, they can be sight-fished...
