The experience of your Sarasota charter fishing captain is the most important factor in putting fish on your line. Captain Brian Martel has been fishing the waters of Sarasota since he was a kid, he's just 15 in the picture below.


We are family owned and operated since 1983, and take great pride in our repeat business. Many of our guests are second and even third generation. We want your experience on the Midnite Son to be an enjoyable and memorable one in order to ensure that you will come back year after year.

The Midnite Son is a 35 foot Californian Sportfish built for comfort and safety, powered by twin diesel engines and equipped with all of the latest electronics thereby getting out into the Gulf of Mexico at a high speed giving you more fishing time for your $$$$'s.

When choosing who to fish with, make sure it’s for the right reason and be sure to check the following:

  • Size and dryness of the boat

  • Is there a cabin on board with full restroom facilities

  • The quality of the tackle

  • The catch rate

  • The type of catch

  • Years in operation and experience – we have been in operation since 1985, we know the waters

  • Public liability insurance, properly USCG licensed and insured Captain

  • Owner operation – are you talking to the guys that know?

  • Proven track record that speaks for itself

  • Local knowledge as well as being connected in the Gulf of Mexico

  • Fly bridge for better viewing 

  • Shaded bridge

  • Catch cleaned

All bait and tackle is included in the charter trip. We use 40lb tackle for Sharks to add sport charter fishing to the battle and the fight can last up to several hours.

The video below has kindly been sent to us by Michael Filewich Jr. who had a great day fishing with us, thank you Michael.
