Gulf of Mexico Reef Fishing

Exit Strategy Fishing Charters offers one of the fastest and most comfortable 6-pack boats in SW Florida. Departing from Matlacha, Cape Coral, and Fort Myers for easy access to Florida’s Gulf of Mexico offshore waters.

Captain Skip Johnson will guide you to the area’s reefs, and wrecks for a great angling experience, these trips often provide near-constant action as 50+ fish is common.

The boat you will be fishing from is a very roomy and comfortable 30’ Robalo center console that can accommodate up to 6 passengers. The vessel provides a bathroom with a freshwater sink and flushing toilette and is powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha engines to take you to the fishing spots with speed and comfort.

Rigged with the finest electronics, dual large-screen GPS/fishfinders with side and down scan sonar, VHF radio, autopilot, radar, and Spot-Lock trolling motor anchoring system, the boat will locate and, most importantly, precisely stay on top of the fish and its structure, as well as safely and comfortably navigate Florida’s beautiful waters.

A few of the many respectable and tasty species you can catch on your trip are Red and Gag Grouper, Lane, Mangrove, Red and Vermilion Snapper, Grunt, Porgy, Flounder, Cobia, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, Snook, Tripletail, Goliath Grouper, Amberjack, and Triggerfish.

You will catch them by bottom fishing with high-quality spinning rods as well as Shimano two-speed conventional rod/reels combos. All fishing poles, bait, and tackle are included. We will even bait and remove fish from your hook if you’d like.

You can keep any open season legal-size fish and take it home. Fish cleaning and zip lock bagging at the end of the day is included. We welcome and cater to the entire family and your trip includes everyone’s fishing licenses. Just bring plenty of food, drinks, proper clothing, hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

There is a cooler on board with ice – please do not bring large items, tackle boxes, ice-chests, or alcohol onboard.

    This trip has less chance of canceling due to high winds. Fishing dock pilings and man-made reefs in the Harbor for Snook, Jack Crevalle, and Mangrove Snapper. The fishing inside the Harbor is not comparable to ocean fishing but provides a relaxing day of boating in calmer waters and frequent dolphin sightings. This is not a meat trip. If you wish to catch fish to bring home, the crew recommends its 8 or 10-hour Gulf of Mexico trips! On calm days, ocean fishing up to 25 miles offshore will be an option.

    Eight hours of Tarpon fishing at the world-famous Boca Grande Pass, otherwise known as the "Tarpon Capital of the World".

Available on weekdays only, as weekends are crowded in the pass.
