The fishing off of the piers, bridges, and along the shoreline on Anna Maria Island has been very promising catching Redfish, Snapper Black drum, Snook, Trout, Spanish mackerel, and Amberjack. There are 3 piers on Anna Maria Island that allow fishing, and have bait shops.
The Historic Bridge Street Pier in Bradenton Beach offers free fishing on the pier, a bait shop, floating boat dock, a restaurant, and the pier is well lit at night. The City of Anna Maria has 2 piers that you can fish from the City Pier and The Rod & Reel Pier just down the beach. Both of the Piers have a restaurant, and bait shop, but the City Pier allows cast netting up to the yellow line before the restaurant.
If you would like to fish off shore you can launch your boat at the Kingfish Boat Ramp in Holmes Beach and get your chance to catch large game fish like: Tarpon, Mackerel, and Grouper in deeper water. If you did not bring a watercraft for an off shore adventure it is always worth going out on a fishing charter or renting a boat for the day to catch these larger game fish.
Whether fishing from a boat, the beach, piers or bridges, fishing enthusiasts have the opportunity reel in the next big fish or at least have a big fish story to tell. While fishing on Anna Maria Island try some fresh Florida seafood from Anna Maria Island’s best restaurants.
