Whether you are a veteran angler or heading out on a family fishing adventure for the first time, Siesta Key fishing has something for everyone. While there are many different area charters and tours available for fishing excursions, it is also fun to drop a line yourself at one of these fishing spots in Siesta Key.

Popular Siesta Key fishing spots include:

North Siesta Key Bridge

The northern bridge connecting Siesta Key and the mainland offers many different fishing opportunities. Fishermen are known to catch their fair share of gag grouper, snapper, and sea bass at this popular spot.

Big Pass

Located at the far northeast end of the island, Big Pass is a great opportunity for shore fishing. As a long skinny inlet with a rocky bottom, it opens to the Gulf of Mexico offering chances to catch snapper, grouper, and snook.

Stickney Point Bridge

The southern bridge connecting Siesta Key and the mainland offers multiple fishing spots and is located next to Mr. CB’s, the largest on-the-water Bait & Tackle shop in Sarasota.

Point of Rocks

As the only rock formations in Siesta Key, Point of Rocks is an idyllic place for fishing. With rocks and underwater caves, fishers can catch flounder, snook, snapper, and trout.

Turtle Beach Lagoon

At Turtle Beach, in the middle of the park, lies Blind Pass Lagoon. You can fish from the seawall, shore, or pier.

Old Midnight Pass

At the southern-most point of Siesta Key, experienced anglers can enjoy fishing from either the Gulf or bay.

There are also several local charters in the area that offer full and half day excursions for the more adventurous fisherman.
