BACK BAY FISHING
Perfect for experienced anglers, families or first-time anglers. The flats of Southwest Florida offer a stunning variety of hard fighting gamefish like snook, redfish, sea trout, mangrove snapper, jacks, sheepshead and more! We target these fish in shallow protected waters just a few minutes from the boat launch.
Snook are notoriously strong fighters and savagely strike an angler’s bait. They frequent mangrove shorelines, inshore docks, passes and oyster bars depending on the time of season and weather conditions. The Caloosahatchee River is one of the states best snook fisheries. We often use a combination of live and artificial baits when targeting snook.
We’re happy to offer shark fishing charters March – November. Our shark fishing trips are done in a very safe and professional manner, making them suitable for families looking to catch and release a trophy fish. Large live or fresh cut bait is used to draw in giants sharks upwards of twelve feet long!! We most commonly catch Black Tip, Bull, Lemond and Sand Bar Sharks during our shark excursions.
Southwest Florida is fortunate to have robust populations of some of the oceans biggest shallow water fish species. Gigantic Goliath Grouper are abundant along inshore bridges and nearshore shipwrecks. These grouper can grow in excess of 600lbs!!! Most Goliath Grouper we catch on our charters are 15olb – 300lbs. To catch these giants, we use live baits that weigh up to 20lbs themselves! This is truly an epic fishing experience.
