    “Great Time and Price- Well worth it!”

    Captain Damien was great with my boys 10 and 7 teaching them how to cast and pull in a fish. He put bait on the hooks and took all of the fish off when we pulled them in. He was very friendly. We did a 1/2 day inland trip and he took us to three different spots where we bottomed fished and used bobbers. We caught a number of different types of fish. I recommend using Damien and next time we come back to Siesta Keys we will use them again.

    Damian was an excellent fishing guide! My dad and I had lots of fun and Damian treated us like one of the bunch...it was like fishing with a good friend. He cleaned our fish and wrapped it up for us when we were finished...had fresh fish for dinner the rest of the week. I would definitely recommend Siesta Key Fishing Charters to anyone!

    “Inshore fishing heaven!!”
    Reviewed July 6, 2014
    My partner and I booked an inshore fishing charter with Siesta Key Sports Fishing during our vacation last week. We had an awesome time. Damian was our captain. He was so knowledgeable about fishing spots in the area, and I was extremely impressed with how particular he was about the cleanliness of his boat. We caught plenty of fish. Some we released, some we kept, including a big redfish, a good-sized flounder, a black drum, and a sheepshead. The fishing was great, but Damian just made the experience so much fun. He even filleted our redfish after the trip, and we took the fillets up to the Boatyard Waterfront bar & grill for lunch. It was one of the best meals of our week-long stay on Siesta Key.

    I would recommend this trip to anyone, even novice fishermen. We will definitely use this company again!!
