Entice Charters

Entice Charters specializes in making fishing fun for any angler who steps onboard. Enjoy the thrill of seeing Snook or Redfish peel out your line while you’re stopping them from going back to the mangrove cover. Explore the Southwest Florida waters in comfort and style!

Fort Myers Beach, the Everglades, and Sanibel Island are home to the finest angling opportunities in the world. Those waters teem with Cobia, Sharks, Permit, Grouper, Tarpon, and many other species.

Enjoy countless pods of Cobia and Tarpon crossing the wrecks during their spring migration. Head to the mangrove islands and grass flats and get your hands on anything that is cruising the area preying on baitfish, including but not limited to Snook, Redfish, and Trout.

Get the taste of backcountry fishing, enjoy the vibrant wildlife, and have a relaxing adventure with your family and friends. All you have to do is book a trip and step aboard a 22’ boat. Its single 150 HP Yamaha 4-stroke will power you to the local honey holes, and the full range of modern electronics will aid your search for the fish. The boat has plenty of space for up to 4 anglers.

All trips come inclusive with the use of all rods and reels, as well as live bait and lures. A cooler with ice will also be available onboard. Cleaning and filleting of the day’s catch will also be provided at the end of the trip.
