What We Catch on Our Charter Fishing Trips in Siesta Key
Charter Fishing Siesta Key for sharks; including bulls, blacktips, tigers, hammerheads, makos, and more. Makos are caught
year round, but to target these large predators the ideal time of year is November through May. An overnight charter trip is ideal but it
can be done in an all day excursion. These fish are large predators and are not measured in numbers but in encounters. Mako's are the
fastest shark in the ocean and are capable of leaping over twenty feet in the air.
