Crushin’ It Fishing Charters

Whether you’re in Matlacha, Cape Coral, Captiva, or Sanibel, Crushin’ It Fishing Charters has you covered. Explore the magnificent inshore waters of Florida’s southwestern coast and target some exciting and delicious fish. Captain Anthony Torres is a Florida native and has been based out of the south-west for the last 15 years. A true outdoorsman, his passion for fishing is only matched by his experience, and he can’t wait to share both with you.

Work your way around these inshore waterways aboard a 22’ Skeeter bay boat. This light vessel is ideal for perusing the bays and can reach speeds of up to 45 knots thanks to her 200 HP Yamaha engine. In the shallower waters, let the wireless trolling motor guide you safely and quietly, as you creep up on the spooky fish you’ll be targeting. All the latest safety and navigational equipment can be found on board, so get ready for a secure, productive day.

From wherever you set off, you’ll have the Caloosahatchee River and Pine Island Sound at your mercy. These diverse waterways offer incredible inshore fishing. You can sight fish in the backwaters, while trolling the flats and bays. Get ready for a thrilling experience as you try to battle it out with Snook, Redfish, or Tarpon, while you’ll also look to reel in delicious Snapper, Tripletail, Trout, and Sheepshead to take home.

Capt. Anthony will prepare plenty of live, dead, and artificial bait prior to your trip, and he’ll even pick you up from the water, depending on your location – just discuss this with him in advance! At the end of the trip, when back on dry land, he’ll also clean and prepare your fish for you to take home. You won’t waste a second’s fishing time with Crushin’ It Fishing Charters. The whole family is welcome, so come and experience southwestern Florida’s incredible inshore fishing.

Growing up on the east coast of Florida, fishing was a big part of my childhood. I spent a lot of time fishing the Atlantic & local canal systems for Peacock Bass. Fishing became an addiction for me at a young age and I have always had a passion for the hunt and adrenaline rush associated with fishing. After moving to SWFL in my teens the fishery changed immensely causing a whole new rush and drive to learn a new fishery. I have been fishing SWFL for about 15 years now and this is home. I would love the opportunity to take you on a trip and show you everything my home waters have to offer.
