Snook One Charters operates in one of the world’s greatest inshore fisheries, taking clients out in search of that fish of a lifetime. Capt. Alan has been guiding the Fort Myers area for over 15 years, and knows all the best spots for monster Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, and much, much more.

You will be launching out of Punta Rassa, giving you endless opportunities of where to fish. Explore the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River, delve into the bayous of Sanibel Island, or head further afield in search of incredible Tarpon grounds. Whatever you do, you will be fishing with an experienced guide aboard a world-class vessel.

Capt. Alan’s 20’ Lake And Bay skiff has everything you need for your trip, and then some. She hits 50 knots on her way to the best spots and has GPS and fishfinder to track down the fish once you get there. You will mainly be live baiting, so she also has a large livewell full of fighting-fit baitfish.

Whether you’re an experienced angler or a complete beginner, Snook One Charters will tailor the trip so it is perfect for you. Capt. Alan will happily allow two adults and two children aboard on shorter trips, making for great family fun. For more seasoned saltwater lovers, he will take you to his very best spots and do his best to get you fishing how you like best.

Catch & Release is encouraged on all trips to help protect the area’s fisheries. If you wish to keep your catch, Capt. Alan will clean and fillet all your fish for you. Licenses, bait, and quality tackle are also included on all trips.

All you need is your food, drinks, sunscreen, and sensible clothing. You will need plenty of energy for the day ahead, too. Because the fish here don’t come quietly!
