People come from all over the world to fish in the waters of Pine Island Sound & the Gulf of Mexico; this is a premier location whether you’re looking to catch a serious trophy fish or just to reel in dinner for the friends and family. Here in Southwest Florida we have an extensive list of fish and shark species that call these waters home and we put in the necessary effort to ensure you’ll catch them. Most months of the year the captains are out in their boats even before the day breaks netting and catching live bait. Hours before our guests arrive at the dock, we’re already there making sure their day on the water will be a success.
Whether you are a serious angler or wetting your first line, your guide will work hard to provide you the best opportunity to catch fish. Your captains outfit their vessels with top-of-the-line tackle and equipment from industry leaders including Shimano, Penn, St. Croix and Yeti. All bait, tackle, and licensing is included with your charter. Captain John operates a classic 1975 23’ Mako with a tower and plenty of shade. Captain Colin runs a 23’ Parker center console which also has a dual station tower and ample shade. Both boats are equipped with live bait wells to ensure your bait stays fresh and frisky.
Captains John and Colin know the waters, the influence of tides, and the feeding patterns of the fish you would like to catch; snook, redfish, sea trout, sheepshead, mangrove snapper,
black drum, shark, tarpon, grouper, triple tail, flounder, mackerel and more. Fish caught on your trip that are of legal size and species will either be put on ice or released (if not wanted or exceeding limits). Upon returning to the docks the captains will clean and filet your catch so you can take them home or to a local restaurant.
