Why is fishing so exceptional in Southwest Florida?
Our Mangrove Islands are rooted in lush shallow warm waters with neighboring grass flats and oyster beds which create the perfect ecosystem for hundreds of fish species to spawn. These fish nurseries in turn bring in larger game fish to feed, creating an angler's paradise!
What type of boat and equipment do you use?
We have two boats for specialty fishing. The first is a 2008 Champion bay boat, powered by a Suzuki 300, guaranteed to getting you to the all the superior fishing spots fast! When fishing in Boca Grande, we always use this boat because of the renowned Champion hull. You won't find a safer boat. It’s also equipped with the Bob's 10 inch jack plate to handle 12 inch water with ease.
The second boat is for the most serious of backwater stalker. This 18 foot Archer Craft is custom built in Tampa, Florida specifically for the skinniest of water. With a boat like this there is nowhere that the Redfish and Snook can hide!
We use Penn rods and reels spooled with 20 lb. Power Pro. No worries when you hook that 30 inch Snook. Just pull him out of the mangroves. These are all around good combos for the bay and flats. For the Big boys in Boca Grande, we break out the big guns. Large 50 class rods and reels spooled with 100 lb. Power Pro. No break off's here. We also provide all fishing licenses and gear that you'll need. .
Can I bring the kids?
We love fishing, and we love to share that passion with everyone, especially the little ones. If you have children, bring them! We guarantee that it will be a safe and exciting experience that they won't soon forget. We have an abundance of patience after all, Capt Jason has three little ones of his own!
