Anna Maria Island is a true angler’s paradise with plenty of options for fishing at the numerous piers throughout the island, from the beaches, rock jetties, on fishing charters, rented boats, or at several of our waterfront vacation rentals that have their own docks on site.
The waters around the island are home to several different types of gamefish such as grouper, amberjack, flounder, redfish, snook, tarpon, cobia, black drum, permit, mackerel, sheepshead, shark and so many others.
There’s nothing like being able to fish right from a dock right outside of your Anna Maria Island waterfront rental, so consider booking any of these top 3 rental options that are sure to have every amenity you need!
These rentals are suitable for families or groups as they can easily accommodate up to 6 to 8 or more people.
The Waters Edge is a 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom cottage located in Bradenton Beach on the southern end of Anna Maria Island. This beautiful and expansive cottage can host up to 6 people, and the fishermen in your group will be able to fish right from the private fishing dock that extends onto the scenic waters of the Palm Sola Bay.
You’ll have everything you need to clean and cook your freshly caught fish in this vacation home with its fully stocked kitchen. Outdoors you can access the water through a wraparound deck. Sit back and take in the views of the water right on the deck anytime you want a break from fishing!
Feel free to head over to the beach whenever you want some sun and sand, as it is just 4 minutes away! It’s also located just a short drive from the historic fishing village of Cortez, where you can learn about the local fishing industry, purchase bait and tackle and get your fishing license.
