You never know what you might catch or see fishing the beautiful waters around Siesta Key. Marvin and Connie visiting from Georgia booked a charter through CB’S Outfitters on Siesta Key and went fishing with me on the Lets Get Em' Charters boat.

We caught and released several snook as well as losing a few more. Connie, using a popping cork with live shrimp, hauled in this rather handsome looking prickly blowfish. The bay is showing quite an improvement with lots of Mullett and Bait.

Prior to our fishing trip this morning I looked at the gulf waters off Turtle Beach and saw several tarpon rolling just off the beach. This would be a good time to book a trip inshore or off the beach for the Tarpon.

Fishing has been a lifetime passion for me. Depending on the skill level of my clients what I like to do is put them on big fish using artificial lures. I like to educating and passing on my knowledge of local history and the many sights the area has to offer while we are on the water.
