Hi All,

I will be in the Anna Maria area of Florida the last week of Feb. I was thinking of more inshore and hopefully some fish that fight as well as they taste. What species should I be lloking for? Does anyone have a charter service they could recommend?

thanks....Jeff

We were there about 12 years ago, but didn't fish at all. We did book a charter and are really looking forward to some open water fishing. Everything around here is froze up solid. I will be certain to look for the trolley and the city pier. Thanks for the tip.

Can't go wrong with Columbia Restaurant there at St. Armands Circle in Lido Key and there used to be a Shells restaurant up on Anna Maria but its been several years since I was over there.

Fishing portion of the trip got nixed. Too much to do in too short a time. We did eat at both the Beach House and the Sandbar, good food and drink at both places. The Sandbar was within walking distance to out rental house.
