Boca Grande Fishing Guide

For your next fishing adventure to Florida, book a trip with Boca Grande Fishing Guide. Owned and operated by local Captain Brandon, he has been fishing these waters since he was a kid. He welcomes all people for an unforgettable trip together. He wants you to have fun, in a friendly and safe environment, catching fish.

Hop on board his 23’ bay boat, perfect for groups of 4 people. This boat is great for getting to those hard-to-reach areas, giving you that extra edge over your prey. Depending on which trip you choose, you can either have just one person fishing at a time or the whole group.

Each trip is specialized to give you the best chance of catching your chosen target. Species you might reel in include Tarpon, Bull Shark, Spotted Seatrout, Snook, Redfish, Grouper, Jack Crevalle, and plenty more. Whatever your skill level, there is a fish out here with your name on it.

Children are welcome aboard. On most trips, children can come who are over 8 years old. On the Tarpon trip, children need to be a minimum of 10 years of age. There are life vests on board for all kids.

Included in the price of the trip are top quality rods and reels. This won’t let you down when reeling in your dream catch. Live bait is also included in the price. Depending on the season, you might catch it during the trip or the captain will prepare it beforehand. Your fishing license is also provided.

Most species need to be released once caught. The captain will fillet the species that can be kept for you after your trip.

You just need to bring your own food on board, which can go into the captain’s cooler. Don’t forget sunscreen, sunglasses, and a sun hat, and you’re good to go.

"I grew up in Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande estuaries, fishing for all types of fish such as Snook, Redfish, and Tarpon. I’ve fished these waters for over 15 years and am a real local!" Captain Brandon has always been on the water. He worked as a first mate for 8 years and then began guiding, after nearly 2 decades of fishing out of the Charlotte Harbor. Tarpon fishing is his favorite and his main goal is for you to have fun.
