Capt Jim Klopfer grew up in Maryland and learned to fish in the waters of Chesapeake Bay. After moving to Sarasota in 1986 and earning his United States Coast Guard license, he began guiding full time. He caters to anglers of all experience levels. All Sarasota fishing charters include everything the anglers needs; tackle, bait, licenses, ice, water, etc. Capt Jim is a proponent of catch and release, but will fillet and bag a few fish for a meal if desired.
