Cash Money Charters specializes in connecting their clients and friends to the world of outdoors. Join them for a day out in Sarasota, Myakka River, Boca Grande, and other exciting places.

The company is owned and operated by Captain Chris Conte, an experienced and enthusiastic guide. He has fueled his passion for fishing from day one and values the experience made on the water above all. If you want to create memories that will last a lifetime, Chris is your guide.

Cash Money Charters operates a 23’ Sportsman center console, fresh on the water in 2017. It comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and can accommodate up to 6 anglers. The boat is rigged with electronics and professional accessories to put you on fish.

Join Capt. Chris and hit the flats, which are home to Redfish, Snook, and Trout. Check the rock piles for Snapper and Grouper, troll for Kingfish, and hit the docks for Snook and Sheepshead.

And finally, if you don’t feel like wetting a line and would much rather prefer to try something special, Capt. Chris has a trip for you. Bring your spearfishing partner and be a real underwater hunter! Previous experience is a must.

The trips with Capt. Chris are all-inclusive. You will only need to bring your own food with you while the captain will supply rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, bottled water, licenses, and Gatorade.

Cash Money Charters is operated by Captain Chris Conte. Chris wanted to become a captain when he was 13, after seeing Captains taking people out while he was fishing from the dock. Seeing people happy and smiling made Chris realize that it was exactly what he wanted to do. He has fished his whole life and knows these waters like the back of his hand. Capt. Chris is a friendly guide who thinks it’s not only about fishing but also about having fun and making his clients happy.
