fishing charlotte harbor & BOCA GRANDE

Charlotte Harbor and the surrounding Gulf Islands make up the second largest natural estuary in Florida (4885 sq mi) and one of the most sought-after fishing destinations on the Gulf Coast. A sandbar estuary that protects pristine sea grasses and mangrove islands. The crystal clear flats of the area provide first-class sight fishing opportunities.

From the dark, brackish waters of the Peace River to the turquoise "Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World," Boca Grande, all the popular inshore game fish are right here at your rod tip. Snook, redfish, trout, tarpon, cobia, black drum, sheepshead and more. 

Nearshore wrecks and natural limestone ledges offer great opportunity for nearshore game fish within sight of the beaches. Targeted nearshore species include grouper, snapper, permit, tripletail, mackerel and even blackfin tuna. A true test of tackle and will on light spinning gear.
