Ready to experience some of the most thrilling fights you can find in the productive waters of Florida? Lunker Lagoon Charters will put you on top of the hottest bite around, whether you’re a seasoned angling veteran or a total novice!

Captain Chris Agardy invites you to join him for an angling adventure in the waters around Hypoluxo. You’ll fish from his 21’ Carolina Skiff. The boat can comfortably hold 6 guests, without people bumping into each other. The engine is a reliable 50 HP Suzuki outboard and it allows the vessel to reach a max cruising speed of 20 knots.

Capt. Chris will take you into the inshore waters of Florida after a wide range of species. If you’re itching for some fresh fish, his 4-hour bottom fishing packages are perfect for you. You’ll go after Lane Snapper, Mackerel, Croaker, and other inshore species.

Or maybe you’re looking for some bigger inshore game? Capt. Chris’s 4-hour live bait packages are perfect for you, then. You’ll hit the Intracoastal Waterway for a wide range of species like Snook, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, Barracuda, and many species of Sharks. This trip is perfect for both beginners and pros as there’s lots of action!

The crew will provide you with all the required safety and fishing equipment but you’re free to bring your own gear if you’d like. There’s plenty of space in the onboard cooler so bring whatever you want to eat or drink – as long as it’s not a banana.

Book a trip with Lunker Lagoon Charters today and enjoy some of the best inshore fishing around!
