Fishing Sarasota and Longboat Key, Florida for 
snook, redfish, tarpon and other Florida game fish!

Welcome to our site . . .

Top Notch Sportfishing is a bay, backcountry, and near shore fishing guide service for west central Florida.  We operate in Sarasota Bay, Tampa Bay and service the Longboat Key, Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, St. Pete, Tampa and Venice areas.  Light tackle fishing for all of Florida's game and sport fish is our specialty.  We have a trip that is right for you, your family, or your corporate event, from inshore snook and redfish to offshore permit and goliath grouper trips.   

This father and son team will guide you through the mangrove islands and white sand beaches to the crystal clear fishing waters of west central Florida.  These waters are home to  some of the worlds most sought after game fish including giant tarpon and snook as well as a wide variety of wildlife.
A trip to the coast of Florida is not complete without an adventure into the backwaters and onto the beaches that Top Notch fishing calls home!

The Top Notch web site includes all the information you need, from the species of fish we catch to the custom boats we use.  The monthly fishing reports give you in-sight on what is being caught including pictures and fun stories.  The captains page introduces both Capt. Tom Jr. and Capt Tom Sr. and the booking page has information on the trips we offer and pricing.   Pick up locations and directions are also on the booking page along with all contact information.  We hope you enjoy our site!
