Capt. Casey is a proud USCG approved captain who was born and raised right here in Sarasota, Florida.  Captain Casey has been on the water since before he can remember and is a fantastic, fun, and knowledgeable  dock master (Sarasota locations) here at WAVES.

-Captain Casey Maloney.
Maloney has a passion for sharing the beauty of Sarasota Bay with others and enjoys the exciting & helpful excursions he has to offer, so come with him on an unforgettable trip into paradise.
The clinics will be focused on proper equipment, correct rigging of your pole, different baits and techniques for catching a variety of saltwater species.

Please set an early departure time (8:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m.). Bring along any saltwater fishing gear you have plus 4 dozen live shrimp from a local bait shop.

Best Event Ever. The weather cooperated - it was cool but sunny.  

We had attendance of over 70 members - some brand new members had their first picnic and others that have been to all 8 Waves annual picnicsr.  The food was great and a variety - the most popular dish I think goes to the Waxlers - I think it lasted all of 1 minute.

The live music from Marvin and the Marvins was awesome too!

A big thanks to all the members for attending and especially for participating.  Congrats to the big winners of the Waves annual games.  

Winners of the famous egg toss were the Moirs!  (we had almost 40 participants)

Winners of the Bocce Ball were Nic & Colin (50 participants)
