Hooked4life Fishing Charters

Whether you’re just discovering your angling passion or you’re in search of your next prized inshore catch, Hooked4life Fishing Charters has got your back! Team up with Captain Andy Santana for a day of fishing fun and games and explore the waters around Bokeelia.

Capt. Andy has been exploring the Southwest Florida waters for over 11 years, so you will be in capable hands as you come aboard. The boat that will take you out is a 22’ center console outfitted with a 225 HP Yamaha engine that can sit up to 5 anglers excited to start their next adventure.

You will be using Penn rods and reels while trying to hook something awesome, and after the trip, you will get your catch cleaned and filleted just in time for your next delicious meal. Capt. Andy also provides lures, live bait, and fishing licenses for your whole group, so that’s one less thing to worry about. You’re free to bring your own snacks, drinks, and lunch if you’re going on a full day trip.

If you’re an inshore fishing aficionado, then you will like the selection of species you can catch on your expedition. Redfish is a classic, as well as Sheepshead, but colossal Snook, Snapper, and Grouper are also popular in these parts, along with Spotted Seatrout and of course, Tarpon. Depending on your preferences, you can chase after a particular species, or drop your line and see what favors it.

You can choose short, but sweet excursions that last 4 hours and are perfect when you’re planning a fun family outing. If you’d like to go further and test your skills and luck, there’s an 8-hour trip that can go up to 9 nautical miles and brings the whole experience up a notch. Kids are always welcome on Capt. Andy’s boat, he loves having them aboard, and he also volunteers to take kids from his community on fishing trips.

With Hooked4life Fishing Charters, you will come to appreciate inshore angling even more and always come back to it gladly!

Captain Andy Santana has been fishing ever since he could hold a rod, and as time passed, it became his biggest passion. He's got over a decade of experience on Bokeelia waters, and that's what spurred him on to get his captain's license couple of years ago. Capt. Andy loves to teach people how to fish and he's especially happy when he gets a chance to teach kids about angling. He also often takes underprivileged kids fishing. Andy is very friendly, loves to talk and share his stories, help you learn more about angling, and fall in love with fishing on his boat.
