This week the offshore Boca Grande Fishing Charters have been steady action. Therefore, if you’re looking for a Fishing Charter in Boca Grande look no further. Fishing approximately 33 miles offshore, the Mangrove Snapper and Grouper bite have been epic, including some of the biggest Mangrove Snapper I’ve seen in years. In addition, there has been Red Grouper up to 13 lbs this week also coming over the sides and into the cooler. For our Offshore Fishing Charters in Boca Grande it’s recommended to choose a 7 or 8 hr trip to allow us to get out 30+ miles. However, for our shorter trips we are still catching Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper (smaller), Red Grouper, and Gag Grouper, but usually shorts. Let’s go fishing, so get your trip BOOKED TODAY!! https://anchorsaway-charters.com/reservations/

This week, on a fishing charter in Boca Grande, the inshore fishing has been a blast. In addition to Redfish, Snook, and Trout, we caught some pompano as well. Winter time means winter negative tides and super low water which is a perfect time for our 18 ft Shallow Sport tunnel hull boat that will run in 6 inches of water. The best baits to use have been live Shrimp and Mirror Lure soft plastic jigs. Fishing the pot holes is the best bet as the fish conjugate in the deeper water and are usually stacked. Trips last week produced 20+ Trout, Ladyfish, a few Redfish, and Snook. To clarify** Redfish, Snook, and Trout are all closed for harvesting until at least May 2021.
