Fish we are thankful for

Thanksgiving is a great time of year- delicious food, time with family & friends, and a day when we can all reflect on things we are grateful for.  Wonderful weather that's not too hot or cold, waters that are full of action packed fishing, & stone crab season (it opened Oct. 15th) are just a few of the many things to give thanks for.  Kingfish right off the beach is something else to be thankful for!  Not many people are aware of how many kings are this close inshore (don't tell anyone!), and the best time to fish for them is when we have a strong east wind & the seas are too large for the kingfish to go further offshore.  Might as well stay in closer & let the island block the winds... this allows YOU to be "king" of the beach!

Above is Megan Crane from WIlloughby, OH, with the first kingfish she's ever caught!  She was using a freelined sardine directly off Anna Maria Island.  Megan & her family also experienced a bountiful harvest of more kingfish, as well as other fish.

Mark Scovill is thankful for the grouper he caught while here from Grand Rapids, Michigan.  He's pictured above holding the gag he caught using sardines in about 50 ft offshore Anna Maria Island.  On the same trip with Capt. Larry, Mark & the party he was fishing with caught their limit of grouper & some miscellaneous snapper.

If post-Thanksgiving football isn't enough entertainment for you, book a trip with Show Me The Fish Charters & you'll not only have the good times you're looking for, but you're also sure to burn off some of those pumpkin pie calories!

  1. My sister and I want to take our family on a big fishing trip. Renting a large boat is what we plan on doing. We want to be able to stay out all day and catch fish.

  2. I also planned for enjoy the vacations with my friends in Florida. So we think aboutfishing trip and decide we also make our trip very humorous and memorize. Thanks for sharing your open minded reviews with us.

  3. My brother and I love the ocean and love fishing. We would love to learn how to deep sea fish. What would a day long trip like this cost if we used a professional fishing company?

  4. Deep sea fishing is full of fun and excitement. I had a deep sea fishing trip in Cancun with Charter Fishing Cancun. That was an awesome experience and thanks to Charter Fishing Cancun to provide us such a great service.
