While looking for the best things to do in Sarasota, you will be met with dozens of options, of course, depending on the unpredictable weather. Many people who live in Sarasota or Bradenton love to go fishing. Fishing was a way of life for our former inhabitants of the area now called in Bradenton and fishing continues to be the way for many of our community residents.
If you’re new to the area or new to angling, you need to know where the best fishing hot spots are around Bradenton:
Anna Maria Island Charter: One thing many anglers love doing is taking the charter boats out from Bradenton to get their fish. The deeper waters and the distance from shore produce things like bigger Spanish mackerel and mangrove snapper as long as 19 inches.
Historic Bradenton Beach City Pier: If your aim is for more terrestrial fishing, which can still produce some great catches, then the Historic Bridge Street Pier at the Bradenton Beach is one place to consider. Old Florida meets modern day living at Bradenton Beach City Pier.
Both these fishing spots offer anglers the venue they need to cast off and the ability to come home to our Heron’s Run community with some impressive catches.
