Fishing Trips in Charlotte Harbor & Florida's Gulf Coast

Considered by many to be the best fishery in Florida, Charlotte Harbor’s mangroves, creeks, islands, and grassy flats provide excellent fishing for Snook and Redfish, also known as Red Drum.

In-shore fishing along Florida’s Gulf Coast also provides great opportunities for Tarpon, Spotted Seatrout, and Spanish Mackerel.

Spin fishing with bait or jigs and fly fishing are both very productive methods for these saltwater species. Regardless of your skill level or fishing preference, fish are abundant and readily caught.
