Midnite Son is the most sought after and popular Fishing Charter in Sarasota, Siesta Key and Longboat Key, we're often copied but never equaled in our charter fishing experiences and enjoyment.

We only cater for private charters and do not fill our boats with separate individuals to form a group . We focus and give our complete attention to our clients , an outing on the Midnite Son Charter Fishing boat will be memorable and exciting!

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

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.


Offshore Deep Sea Charter fishing for Sarasota, Siesta Key and Longboat Key in the Gulf of Mexico, the home to some of the best charter fishing available anywhere. Sarasota is home to many calm sea days – which means excellent fishing more often. West Florida also offers the best grouper fishing, second to none. While there is an abundance of fishing available, you still have to know where to go to be on the fish and that's where Captain Brian's experience and knowledge is worth the trip.

We also offer night shark fishing charters. One of our shark catches was used in the movie JAWS. You’re probably used to viewing nature’s sharks from a safe, secure distance, with a sturdy glass casing between you, but have you ever seen one so close in person that you could actually touch the scaly skin of the sea’s most ferocious inhibitor (if you dared)? Now you can!  Be prepared to get messy...shark fishing takes time and strength, and it’s not an easy catch, but it sure is thrilling. Always taking place at night, nightime is the best time to catch a shark on the prowl.  It’s a constant game of yo-yo...catch the shark, reel it in, let it swim back out, reel it back in, again and again, until the shark tires.  I hope you have been doing your push-ups!  This adrenaline-packed adventure requires stamina and strength.  Have your camera ready, because once you reel this bad boy in, you only have seconds to snap a pic of this magical beast before releasing it back into the wild.  Come ready to have a good time.

Family friendly charter fishing in Sarasota, Siesta Key and Longboat Key is one of Captain Brian's specialties. There’s no better way to introduce your kids to fishing than taking them on one of Captain Brian's kid friendly fishing charters. Capt. Brian will take care of all the baiting hooks, unhooking fish, answering questions and even casting for them if needed. Instructions are in a very patient, calm, and respectful manner that will have them catching fish like a pro. This gives mom and dad a chance to fish also or relax and enjoy the day.

Ash Scattering Burial At Sea is another service that we offer. Most Ash Scattering Burial At Sea charter trips take anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the service you would like to have out at sea.  We are a aware of all State and Federal laws and abide by them on all charter trips.
