Itsakeepa Charters

If you want your next fishing adventure to take place in Captiva Island, Pine, or Matlacha Island, you can’t go wrong with Itsakeepa Charters. Captain Steve Miele is a knowledgeable and experienced Captiva Island native who loves putting his clients on the fish and showing them the best time on the water.

Your boat for the day will be a 25’ pilothouse Parker vessel, spacious enough to take up to six anglers fishing simultaneously. It comes equipped with twin 150 HP Yamaha engines, a live bait tank, and ice-boxes. The boat is also packed with top-notch safety gear and navigational electronics to help you find your dream catch in no time.

With over 15 years of experience running the most exciting fishing trips in the area, Itsakeepa Charters offers a wide range of packages that can be tailored to your specific desires. They specialize in inshore, backwater, flats, and mangrove fishing, but depending on the season and your preferences, the captain can take you up to 25 miles offshore in pursuit of Tuna, Kingfish, Snapper, Shark, Tarpon, Grouper, Snook, Redfish, Trout, and many other interesting species.

You’ll be supplied with all the needed gear for a productive day on the water – from top professional tackle to live bait and lures. Depending on the trip, live bait will be waiting for you on the boat or you’ll get to catch it on your own while traveling to the best fisheries.

All of the trips are fully customizable so bring your best fishing buddies, family, or kids (minimum age is 5) and enjoy the most unique day on the water you’ll remember for years to come!
