Cape Coral FL, United States

Cape Coral Guide Service and Captain RJ Hagewood offer inshore fishing in the productive waters of Southwest Florida, for a variety of game fish such as Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Grouper, Snapper and many more. You’ll be fishing on a 24’ custom boat, outfitted with an assortment of navigational and fish finding equipment, including GPS, radio as well as a Fishfinder. A fighting chair for handling the bigger fish, as well as an ice box, can also be found among the boat’s amenities.

Cape Coral Guide Service specializes in a mixture of popular fishing techniques, such as light tackle, bottom fishing, jigging, popping etc. All the necessary tackle for inshore fishing is provided, including both live bait and lures. Following your trip, should you decide to bring some fish home for a meal, Captain Hagewood will be happy to clean, fillet and bag your catch for you.

There are 4, 6 and 8 hour fishing trips to choose from, depending on how much time you have on your hands and how many spots you’d like to cover during your trip. Captain RJ also runs specialty full day Tarpon fishing trips for all the Silver King enthusiasts visiting southwest Florida. Tarpon trips can be organized April thru July, coinciding with their peak season.

On April 11 decided to book a last minute afternoon trip (for the 12th) since it looked like the pesty wind that had been around was going to lay down. Captain RJ worked us in at the last minute so went out for a half day, searching for tarpon and to catch a few sharks. After picking up a few sharks we had a little more tarpon activity around us and wouldn’t you know it we hooked in to one. After a 45 minute fight (and some chasing) we had a 6 foot 130-140 pound tarpon by boat side. Just a tremendous experience. At age 65 this was truly a great angling experience for me and one not to be forgotten. Thanks Captain RJ!

We were on the meat right away and hooked up to a Tarpon within 10 minutes of starting to fish.  The captain was great and kept us busy all day.  We ended up with 5 Tarpon on and we landed one.  (see the image attached)  It was everything that I wanted out of the trip and worth every dollar.  I would recommend booking with this Captain as he was great to deal with and an amazing guide!
