Nick Wenzel Fishing Charters

Fishing the inshore and nearshore waters of Boca Grande can only be explained as the synergy of relaxation and excitement. Let your stress melt away as you stalk the shallows and mangrove forests of the area, but be ready for some reel screaming action as the fish here and large and feisty! Nick Wenzel Fishing Charters are here to help you find the hottest fishing spots and have the most fun possible.

You’ll fish from an Avenger center console, measuring 24’ in length. She’s powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, allowing her to develop a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. She can hold up to 6 anglers fishing at the same time in relative comfort, no bumping elbows here! A wireless trolling motor is present as well, allowing for pin-point precision when navigating the mangroves. With it on board and Captain Nick at the helm, even the spookiest fish won’t hear you coming.

The fishing in the area is well known to be excellent – the mangroves provide ample feeding and breeding grounds for various species which in turn attracts more predators. The result is the fact you can go after Redfish, Mangrove Snappers, Snook, Tarpon, Tripletails, Cobia, Amberjacks, Pompanos, Spotted Seatrouts, Kingfish, and other species with this one charter. The techniques you will use are tried an tested, bottom fishing with light and heavy tackle, as well as trolling.

Captain Nick Wenzel will be your guide and assistant on this amazing journey. You can rest easy as he’ll take care of everything – cleaning and filleting your catch, showing you how to rig your hook, as well as help you fishing with live bait. Your only job is to have as good a time as possible.
