Come discover Southwest Florida’s world-famous fishery with Shallow Water Experience charters! Covering the area from Boca Grande to Pine Island Sound, this charter service allows you to experience some of the best inshore game fishing Florida has to offer.

Captain Bobby Ferrero is the man behind this charter – as a native Floridian who has lived and fished in the Port Charlotte area all his life, he knows a thing or two about these waters! He’s spent over 25 years trying out and refining different fishing tricks and techniques. He can’t wait to share his proven local fishing secrets with you, whatever your age or skill level.

Your adventure starts aboard a stylish 21’ Shallow Sport boat, perfectly designed for shallow water fishing. She can accommodate up to 4 guests. Powered by a Yamaha engine, this vessel will take you quickly to the best fishing spots, and once you’re there, jer specialist poling platform, trolling motor, and anchoring system will get you close to the fish without disturbing them.

These waters are home to species such as Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Trout, Sharks, Snook, and the mighty Tarpon. Capt. Bobby will introduce you to the best techniques for catching your target fish. Whether you like casting your line with flies, lures, or live bait, he’ll be able to provide you with the equipment needed for an exciting and enjoyable experience! 

As you’ll be fishing shallow, protected waters, Capt. Bobby’s trips are great for the whole family, as well as newer anglers. Water depths are rarely more than five feet, meaning that there is very little chance of seasickness. It’s the perfect place to introduce your little ones to the magic of fishing!

All of your fishing equipment, bait, lures, and licensing are included in the price of your trip. Just let your captain know beforehand if you’d like to fly fish. Drinks are provided, so just grab your favorite snacks, and come explore this incredible fishery alongside Shallow Water Experience charters!
