Fly Fishing Charters
Fly fishing is a personal favorite of Captain Leighton and these trips reflect that passion. Expect his passion to be contagious. You’ll fly fish the extensive estuary in Charlotte Harbor near Boca Grande and Punta Gorda, Florida. Depending on the day you may stalk tailing redfish, have sight shots at large snook or find rolling tarpon in small creeks. We have a skinny water craft just for our fly fishing excursions in the backcountry of Boca Grande, Punta Gorda and Charlotte Harbor. If you love to wade fish that may be a possibility too. This is the skinny water fly fishing trip you’re looking for to experience true angling nirvana.
Light Tackle Charters
On a light tackle charter you’ll explore the back waters of Charlotte Harbor. Two anglers will be fishing for species such as tarpon, snook and redfish. Custom made jigs, lures and plugs will be utilized to capture these sport fish in skinny waters of southwest Florida. Light spinning rods, left-handed and right-handed ready, will be provided. These rods will be matched to the anglers casting abilities to ensure the best opportunity of catching desired species. Therefore anglers can expect an exciting, up close interaction with fighting these game fish. You’ll have sight casting as well as blind casting chances as conditions allow.
