Boca Grande Offshore Fishing Charters
On our Boca Grande offshore fishing charters, we will take up to 5 guests. Trips range from 18 miles to 35+ miles depending on the length of the trip and your preferences. We will be bottom fishing, as well as possibly trolling and drifting bait. The Gulf Of Mexico offers a wide variety of fish and structure. As a result, our offshore fishing charters send us fishing over rock ledges, reefs, and wrecks. The size and variety of fish varies with the distance of the trip. All offshore trips are full of action and we always catch a lot of fish. It's usually nonstop and keeps everyone busy and catching plus it's always a good time. Book Today!!!

Fishing Safely and Legally
Captain Jeff is one of a few SW Florida Captains that has the required permits to fish legally in the federal waters with clients. Therefore, he has the advantage of taking customers out past the 9 mile state waters where the real fun begins. All trips are action packed and you will leave with great table-fare fish. In addition, bait, tackle, and fishing licenses are all included and we will clean your fish, too.
All offshore trips are weather permitting and sometimes trips get cancelled or rescheduled. Capt. Jeff makes the final call the day before the trip. Capt. Jeff has many years and training of forecasting sea conditions and weather and will make the safest decision. safety is our #1 priority.
Safety equipment and more
Aboard the vessel you will find type 1 offshore life jackets with the required whistle & light, first aid kit, VHF radio, Epirb Gps location device, Satellite phone, Spot Satellite Messenger, NOAA GPS monitoring system, flairs and other safety equipment. Remember you get what you pay for -- safety & experience are priceless!!
On offshore charters, children under 13 years old are required by law to wear a life vest. It is recommended that you bring their own life vest to ensure that it properly fits your child. If you don't bring one, a child's universal life vest will be provided , but sometimes they aren't as comfortable. If you have any questions please contact Captain Jeff.
Boca Grande Inshore & Backcountry Charters
Our guided Boca Grande inshore and back country fishing charters allow up to 2 people to fish the shallow protected waters in and around Gasparilla Sound and Charlotte Harbor. We primarily fish the mangrove shorelines and the abundant grass flats of Florida's beautiful southwest coast. Catching redfish, snook, and seatrout is the objective on these trips. Artificial baits and lures, as well as live and cut baits, are used depending on the fish bite and your angler skill level. Since we remain in protected waters, these trips also offer plenty of opportunities to experience the beauty of our undeveloped shorelines. As a result, we will encounter an abundance of wildlife that makes these waters home, including egrets, bald eagles, ospreys, dolphins, manatees, and much more.
**NOTE** The State of Florida closed the harvesting of Redfish, Snook and Trout until May 2020. These changes were put into effect after the significant red tide of 2018.
Boca Grande Shark Charters
A Unique Fishing Experience
Our Boca Grande shark charters offer a different type of fishing experience. Instead of nonstop action like the offshore fishing charters, this one is a bit more laid back...to start. Once the bait is in the water there's opportunity to sit back and relax while you wait for the sharks to arrive. Black tip, hammerheads, bull sharks, and spinners are all a possibility. But once they hit the bait...there's no time to relax! Reel, reel, reel! And, prepare for quite a fight when they arrive!
