Placida Fishing Charters

Offshore Fishing Charters

On our Boca Grande offshore fishing charters, we will take up to 5 guests. Trips range from 25+ miles out 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. Are target species will consist of Snapper (mangrove, Lane, Vermillion, Red). Grouper (red,gag,black), Trigger Fish, Cobia, Mahi-Mahi, Porgy,  Barracuda, and many more. You can expect your ride out to the fishing grounds to be approximately 1 hr each way. Of coarse this can change with conditions. 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!!!  

Boca Grande Inshore Fishing Charters

Inshore Fishing 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** **Update** The State of Florida has extended the closure of the harvesting of Redfish, Snook and Trout until May 2021. These changes were put into effect after the significant red tide of 2018.
