Going fast!

Join Captain Ron and go chase fish out of Punta Gorda. Here you can get Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Sharks, and many other species. Get your friends and come along!

From Ponce de Leon Park, you will head out into the beautiful Charlotte Harbor. There you can target anything from Snook to Sharks. Fishing trips with Capt. Ron will see you fishing around mangroves, sand flats, and reefs. These waters are teeming with fish, but that’s not all. You’re likely to come across some dolphins, so bring a camera!

Saltwater Spoiled Fishing Charters operate out of several locations. You can meet Captain Ron in Englewood, Placida, and Boca Grande too. He can accommodate anglers of any skill set and will gladly help make your day memorable.

Your vessel for the day is a 25’ Carolina Skiff center console. With the capacity of up to six anglers, she is a perfect choice for families with kids. The boat is powered by a 150 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engine and features navigational gear, an ice box, a trolling motor, a live well, and stores a range of fishing equipment at your disposal.

Having fished the Midwest fisheries, Captain Ron moved to Florida with his family and fell in love with saltwater fishing opportunities around here. He will share his passions with his customers and will take good care of them.

You will get the fishing gear onboard, as well as bait and cold water. You should bring whatever you want to eat and drink, and a camera, sunglasses, a cap, and sunscreen.

I have been fishing since I was a little guy. I have fished all over the Midwest and part of Canada. When I moved to Florida with my wife and children, I couldn't wait to get back to fishing. Once I caught my first big saltwater fish I was hooked, truly spoiled for saltwater fishing. I love taking people out for a good time of fishing or just swimming on the sand flats or beaches and some dolpin viewing. I love to share in that fish of a lifetime experience with people.
