Fish On Charters

6001 Maria Dr
St. James City FL, United States

Fish On Charters specializes in inshore light tackle fishing in the waters of Pine Island Sound. You can also fish many of the surrounding islands, including Sanibel, Captiva, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, and Cayo Costa. These waters are famous for their epic shallow-water bite, and Capt. Shawn Waite will get you on the biggest fish out there during your time onboard.

Capt. Shawn run his trips aboard an 18’ center console. The vessel is powered by a 115 HP Yamaha Saltwater Series engine and equipped with GPS and Fishfinder to track down your catch. She can accommodate up to 3 guests in comfort and has life jackets for everyone onboard. She also has a livewell to keep your bait fresh and a cooler with ice for your fish and your drinks.

During your trip, you can target many of Florida’s most prized gamefish including Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Sharks and much more. While pursuing these hard-fighting fish, you’re also likely to encounter a variety of Florida’s resident wildlife such as manatees, eagles, and ospreys.

Capt. Shawn provides all the necessary tackle for his guests, generally matched to the species you want to target. Live and cut bait are always available, as well as lures if that’s more your style. In short, he provides everything you need for some trophy catches. All that’s missing is an angler to reel them in. Are you up to the challenge?
