Sarasota Bay Fishing Guide

Capt. Shawn Crawford

Serving Tampa Bay and Sarasota to Boca Grande


Beautiful clear flats are studded with abundant mangrove shorelines. That's the West Coast of Florida, some of the finest Backcountry fishing in the world! That is the back-drop these hard fighting game fish occupy, Snook, Tarpon, Pompano, Redfish, Trout, and Permit. Capt. Shawn specializes in Light Tackle Fishing for them. The summer months are prime Tarpon fishing in Sarasota Bay, as the Tarpon move up the west coast from world famous Boca Grande. Capt. Shawn specializes in trophy fishing for all of them.

Superb Light Tackle Fishing! The Ultimate fish is the Tarpon, known as the Silver King. May thru November, sight fishing for Tarpon in Sarasota Bay rivals that of any other place in the world. You will never forget the experience of casting to a school of 50-150 pound Tarpon, and the heart stopping thrill when he takes your line! Occasionally fish top the 200 lb. mark, and Capt. Shawn has the expertise and equipment to hook you up.
