Capt. Wes Wildman Holmes Beach, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Wildman Adventures is your premiere choice for fishing charters in Tampa Bay, FL. Our goal is to deliver you a fishing trip you will never forget!

Captain Wesley Wildman will be manning the helm as you search for your prized catch. Capt. Wes is a Florida native who grew up fishing the waters surrounding beautiful Anna Maria Island. His passion for boating and fishing came at a very young age when his father would take him along on fishing trips. Captain Wes has over 17 years of experience and knowledge of the Anna Maria Island waters and knows where to find all sorts of marine life. You could experience Dolphins, Manatees, Sea Turtles, and a wide variety of birds that call our local waterways home while out searching for fish. Captain Wes also Knows the hottest sandbars and islands to tour in Sarasota and Tampa Bay area.

Your fishing charter trip with Capt. Wes will start out of Holmes Beach and go on to cover the fishing grounds of Sarasota, Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, Bradenton, and other locations in the Tampa, FL area.

All our trips are done on our 2009 Carolina Skiff 238 semi V powered by a 2018 Suzuki 150 Four stroke. She features a Minn Kota ipilot, 8ft power pole, 65-gallon bait well, Garmin GPS, Lowrance bottom machine, 2 65 qt coolers, and a T Top for those hot Florida summers. This boat is perfect for inshore fishing with its huge front and rear fishing decks, and shallow 6-inch draft. This boat is equipped with top of the line tackle and electronics to make your adventure that much more enjoyable. She also has seating for up to 6 people.

We offer 4, 6, and 8-hour inshore and nearshore trips that provide you with tackle, rods and reels, bait, and a fishing license. We suggest you bring drinks, snacks, sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, hats and long sleeve shirts to protect you from the HOT Florida Sun.

Our trips love to target Redfish, Snook, Grouper, Cobia, Kingfish, Snapper, Tarpon and many other species. This area has endless fishing opportunities and we plan to take full advantage of it by putting you right where the fish are biting.

Enjoy a day on the water with Wildman Adventures and let us help you experience a fishing charter adventure of a lifetime!
