Endless Pursuits

Endless Pursuits is an inshore and backwater charter service based in Punta Gorda and ready to take you out for a productive day on the water. Captain Anthony Minio offers everything from a relaxed day on the flats looking for Trout and Redfish to technical backwater trips.

He runs an 18’ Tritonwith a 90 HP Suzuki engine that makes her swift and agile. The vessel sports a tunnel hull that can get just about anywhere with its extremely shallow draft, and it has enough room to take out up to 3 anglers to the best bite of the day. Your guide will provide top range rods, Daiwa reels, as well as lures and live bait, which will be prepared in advance for your convenience.

There’s a wide selection of catch you can look forward to and Capt. Anthony does a lot of specialized trips, where you can target your favorite species. Depending on your choice of the expedition, you could chase anything from Snook, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout to a variety of Sharks, Grouper, and the mighty Tarpon. After your trip, you’ll get your catch cleaned and filleted, which means you get to enjoy it as soon as you’re in your kitchen.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned angler or a novice still finding your way around the rod, you will have a good time fishing with Endless Pursuits. Your captain has over a decade of fishing experience, and he’ll gladly share it with you. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks and head out to explore the excellent fishery of the area!

I have lived and worked on the water my entire life, but fishing was always a passion. I decided to make my passion my career and make a living out of it. I've been a captain for 10 years, and I know how to organize a fishing trip that will be fun and productive for everyone on the boat. I also run specialized and technical expeditions, so there's something for every level.
