Owner and sole operator, Captain Jim McWhorter, is a Florida native and has fished the Gulf reefs and ledges off Sarasota, Bradenton and Venice for over 30 years. He wants charter fishing to be fun and tries to make his trips worth remembering whether his customers are experienced or first-time fisherman. He says, "I do alot of catch-and-release trips with fathers and their sons or daughters, couples, a grandparent with grandkids, and even single moms giving her children a great new fishing experience". His customers often travel from Tampa, St. Petersburg or Orlando for the experience of a fishing trip with him off Siesta Key and Longboat Key. The first responsibility of fishing guides is to ensure your safety on offshore adventures, but Captain Jim also tries to leave you with a memory of hooking that really big one. On every trip, he uses digital photography and Photoshop software to create lifetime fishing memories for families and friends,... hence the company's name, Catch A Memory Fishing Charters.

Enjoy the serenity of the Gulf of Mexico and our deep sea fishing action for the price of an inshore bay charter. Our charters are affordably priced for small groups up to three or four people.
