Our Favorite Fishing Charter

| November 10, 2020

One of the best ways to spend your time on Anna Maria Island is by booking a fishing charter. If you love fishing and you want to spend time on the open sea, then this is the outing for you. 

At Serendipity, we are always connecting our guests with the best of the best. We want you to experience the best restaurants, events, local services, and even fishing charters. They are no exception!

Our favorite fishing charter is Captain Major Fishing Charters FKA Sumotime Fishing Charters. Captain Mark Howard, a long time Anna Maria Islander and former owner of Sumotime Fishing Charters, ran fishing charters on the island for over 20 years. He retired in August 2018 and sold his business to Captain Sam major, his primary fishing mate. 

Captain Major is a 5th generation Tampa Bay local and knows the area well. He has a reputation for being an extremely knowledgeable, kind, and fun captain. He is also a family-friendly fishing guide that welcomes all people. 

You can choose from different charter options that include inshore/nearshore waters surrounding Anna Maria Island, Tampa Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico. Captain Major also tailors each experience to the specific skill level and desire of each angler. 

All equipment and bait are provided with each charter. He also does the cleaning/filleting as well so that you can bring home fresh fish for dinner! He even provides a list of what to bring along for the trip to make your experience the best that it can be. 

Captain Major provides a great experience that won’t disappoint. What a great way to make memories on your trip to Anna Maria Island! Contact Captain Major Fishing Charters to book your charter!
