Florida Fishing Charters

~ providing quality outdoors experiences for more than 20 years~

Charlotte Harbor is 100 miles south of Tampa and 30 miles north of Fort Myers and includes the areas of Boca Grande, Pine Island, Gasparilla Island, Placida, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda.  “A tranquil getaway on Florida’s Southwest Gulf Coast and a premier charter fishing destination”.

Charlotte Harbor redfish, snook and sea trout fishing is among the very best in Southwest Florida.  

Spring tarpon fishing along the beachfronts is known as the best in the world.  

Other sport fish species available; sheepshead, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, bluefish, cobia, bonito, snapper, grouper and flounder.  mangroves, grass flats, canals, beachfronts, passes, and artificial reefs.  The fishing and exploring possibilities are endless.

This twenty five mile long, five mile wide Harbor lends itself perfectly to guided light tackle and fly fishing.  Sight fishing is exciting along the flats and mangroves of the East Side, Bull Bay, Placida and Gulf Beaches.  Blind casting the grass flats of the West Wall, Cape Haze and Turtle Bay is very productive. On windy days the Peace River, Myakka River and endless canals provide shelter and consistent action.  There are over ten area boat ramps that make for short runs to productive fishing

Charlotte Harbor /Boca Grande Fishing Report: 03-18-13

Settling in now. Still working out an internet connection and getting the skiff ready for guiding. Shakedown on Charlotte Harbor yesterday went pretty well but I found a cracked livewell seacock and the new trolling motor blocks my bow light socket. Fished a few hours with Gordon and Mary Gillies on the Punta Gorda shore. Spotted seatrout for supper tonight and I now know where the redfish aren't. Been cold but today I woke up to 62* and it will be in the 80s this afternoon. Water temps are in the mid 60s.

Charlotte Harbor /Boca Grande Fishing Report: 03-30-13

Cold front moving off 54* this morning with highs in the low 80s. today. Charlotte Harbo water temp is climbing and will be back in the 70s by the end of the weekend. Best news of all is the water levels are back to just below normal in the Pine Island Sound and the bays. Though it’s been fun watching boaters run aground almost every day this week. Tide charts are great but... Had a great spotted seatrout bite yesterday and fly and spin fishing will improve dramatically over the weekend. Good thing too, I have 6 charters this week. Everyone have a great and blessed Easter.
