Boca Grande & Englewood Inshore Fishing Charter Trips & Rates

Redfish, snook, sea trout

Whether you’re after snook, redfish, or gator speckled trout, inshore fishing is sure to offer just what you’re looking for. The majority of our creeks, lagoons, bays, and harbors are situated between the barrier islands and the mainland. These shallow waters often are less than 4 to 5 feet in depth; most remaining calm on the windiest of days … a major plus for those folks who are less comfortable being in open water or feeling they may be a “bit less than seaworthy.” Our inshore waters in and around Charlotte Harbor include the world famous Boca Grande pass, Lemon Bay, Gasparilla Sound, and Pine Island Sound areas. These regions are part of the largest saltwater estuary in North America and are jam-packed with life. The thousands of miles of mangrove shorelines, thick turtle grasses, and shallow grass flats make a recipe for a spectacular fishing experience.

Inshore fishing charters also provide the chance to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the state of Florida. Manatees, dolphins, ospreys, and eagles thrive in our little slice of heaven. It is uncommon to go all day without seeing at least one of those species. Another bonus … if fishing during the week, we are oftentimes the only boat in sight.

Remember, Jesse and Kelly are not fish gods. There are days when you may catch every species on the list … but there are also days when you may only catch a handful. Conditions change, fish move. We can, however, guarantee a fun time out on the water.
