Speak Easy Fishing Charters

Based out of the beautiful Fort Myers Beach, Speak Easy Fishing Charters offer rewarding fishing and sightseeing excursions around the local area. Fishing from an 18 ft Ranger Ghost flats boat that is ideally suited for fishing the skinny waters, Speak Easy can cater for up to three guests with ease. The boat’s wide beam makes it the perfect platform for casting a fly or fishing with conventional tackle, and with amenities including a trolling motor, anchoring system, and GPS and Fishfinder, it will put you on the fish and keep you there.

Your trip will involve fishing the flats and backcountry of Florida’s west coast. In the capable hands of experienced guide Joe Angius, you will use a variety of fishing techniques while soaking in the sights and sounds of these unique waterways. Since Captain Joe majored in Environmental Studies and Biology at Florida Gulf Coast University, he will be able to give you a unique insight into the species you are targeting on the day.

Captain Joe encourages catch and release on his fishing trips to ensure that this precious fishery remains intact for generations to come. Whether you are hoping to hook a monster Redfish on the fly or take a unique sight seeing adventure in Florida, Capt. Joe will make sure you get what you are looking for. Let’s go fishing!

My name is Captain Joe Angius and Southwest Florida is the only place in the world I want to be. I grew up on Long Island and never would have thought how my passion for fishing would be challenged by the backwaters and shallow flats of Florida. Some of the world's most elusive game-fish call this area home and this is why I will never want to live anywhere else.
