Anna Maria Island is well known for its amazing fishing year-round and if you are staying on the south end of AMI you will be thrilled to know that you are close by to some of the best spots that the Island has to offer.

Bradenton Beach City Pier

The Bradenton Beach Pier is located at the end of The Historic Bridge Street and offers lots of great amenities such as numerous cleaning stations, several covered spots to provide shade from the Florida sun, and even fishing light attractors for great night-time fishing. Two other major bonus points there are public restrooms conveniently located as well as the Anna Maria Oyster Bar on sight for when you are ready to take a break and enjoy a delicious meal or drink.

3 Piers Beach

Head on over to the Gulf side for some fantastic fishing on Three Piers Beach. The name is exactly as it sounds, this beautiful beach has three separate piers that are a favorite fishing spot by locals and visitors alike. Enjoy a spectacular sunset while catching dinner-it doesn't get better than that!

Longboat Pass and Fishing Beach

On the very southern tip is the pass between Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key where you will find an incredible fishing beach. This channel is home to many different kinds of fish including summer flounder and snook. To learn more information about fishing at the Longboat Pass check out Hook and Bullet.

Local Rules and Regulations

There are some rules and regulations that you will have to be familiar with when fishing in the area. For example, if you are over the age of 16 you will have to have a fishing license that can easily be obtained at many tackle shops or even at tax collector offices. If you are a Florida resident over the age of 65 or are fishing from land or an attached structure like a pier you do not need to get one. It’s also important to know the different seasons and rules regarding certain types of fish. For the most current and up to date information make sure to check out The Florida Fish and Wildife Conservation.
