big redfish caught on Reel Addiction in Sarasota

Some of our most common questions:

How can I decide between an inshore and offshore trip?
Fishing is fishing but there are some differences between an inshore and offshore trip including what’s biting, the weather, the preferences of others in your party, how much time you have and how flexible your fishing dates are. Visit this page and it may help you decide if you are uncertain.

What do you supply?
We supply all required licenses, tackle, bait, fuel, coolers, ice, and lots of experience.

What should we bring?
You should bring any food or drink that you would like for your trip duration. Also, if you are fishing with us throughout the day, remember your sun screen, hats, jackets and sunglasses.

Can I bring alcohol on the boat?
Of course you can bring alcohol, you’re fishing with Bad Habit or Reel Addiction aren’t you?

How many people can I bring?
Up to 6 people in your party are allowed on Bad Habit or 4 people in your party on Reel Addiction.

Are there any age requirements?
There are no age requirements.

Do I need any fishing experience?
No, we have all the experience that you need. We love teaching others about our sport and coaching you through it all. We have many people who have never fished a day in their life, but leave with a new understanding and a unforgettable experience. We also have seasoned fishermen that like to come out with us to pick our brain and learn new techniques. We love to share our knowledge.

What is commonly caught on board?
Fishing always varies from season to season. We have a fishing report link on our site that we update. To see the latest news on what’s biting and what you would most likely be catching at that time, check it out.

Is the fish edible?
Some of the fish you are likely to catch is edible for sure, and yours to keep. Generally, if the fish is not edible, we release it, or sometimes use for bait.

What if I catch a really big fish?
We have great local taxidermist here in town, and they do fantastic work. If you catch a big one, tell your mate you want to mount it, and they will be happy to help you set everything up with the taxidermist.
