!! BOOK YOUR TRIP OF A LIFETIME TODAY !!
Redfish, Snook, Tripletail, Kingfish, Cobia
And Yes "TARPON & SHARK"
Tarpon season starts March 1st - book soon, as our calendar is filling fast.
Unfortunately, Charlotte Harbor & Boca Grande get a lot of out-of-town fishing guides during Tarpon Season. What these guides lead their clients to believe is that Boca Grande & Charlotte Harbor only have Tarpon during the months of May & June. That is a lie. We are not known as the Tarpon Capitol of the World for nothing. Tarpon show up in Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande, and the surrounding waters in early March and stay here until the first true cold front comes down from up north (usually mid-November). For a true fish of a lifetime, book your trip soon, as all of the True Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor guides will be sold out very soon.
Shark fishing is also in full swing. For a fun day of shark fishing, let's go target the Blacktips, Hammerheads, Lemons, Bulls, Blacknose, Sandbar and Spinners that roam these waters. The average shark weighs somewhere between 40 to 150 pounds (3 to 6 feet). Most sharks are catch-and-release only - but if you catch a nice blacktip and would like it for the grill, you are more than welcome to keep it. February is a great shark month as the harbor is teaming with bait fish for them to eat. A 4-hour trip averages 3 to 5 hookups, so the longer the trip, the more worn out you will be.

Snook, Trout, Redfish & lots of others:
The Redfish, Snook, & Trout bite has been very good and will get even better as the waters start to warm. You can target Snook, Trout, & Redfish on both natural baits and an array of artificial lures. Along with Snook, Trout, & Redfish, you can also expect to catch Pompano, Cobia, Mangrove Snapper, Ladyfish, Jacks, and Mackerel. This type of fishing is fun for the entire family and can be quite relaxing when we get way back into the backcountry waters.
"Book your backcountry trip today, and let's go bend them rods."
Nearshore fishing is going strong, with Spanish Mackerel, Kingfish, Tripletail, and lots of different Snapper making up the bulk of the catch. On average, we stay within 3 to 5 miles of land and never go past 9 miles - you will never be out of sight of land. If you book a nearshore trip and the weather is less than optimal, we can change you to a backcountry trip in the blink of an eye. Near-shore fishing is a blast and well worth a try if you have never been out in the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
