There are a few places between Matlacha, northern Pine Island, and Placida where you can buy fresh right off the boat, but I'm not sure about the direct Sarasota area.

I may be wrong but I think that changed a year or two back. I know you don't need a license to fish from a licensed pier but I seem to recall that you now need a license to fish from shore or to wade, if you are using a pole.

I second Twin Lobsters in Englewood. Hubby was told about the place and got scallops for NYE!! They were delicious and very fresh. He said it was packed in there. Will definitely go back.

One place not mentioned is The Lucky Pelican right off University and 75. It's a restaurant but they also have a counter that sells fresh seafood. The Starfish off Cortez is the best though!

Walt's Fish Market at 4144 Tamiami is decent. I have bought from them several times, and have not been disappointed. Great selection.

When I was a kid people used to go over to the Cortez Fishing village (in Manatee county) and buy fresh fish off the boats as they came in. I'm not sure if they still do or if this might be where Enders Fish is talking about.

I'd be interested to know as well...
