On Ice Fishing Charters is based in Fort Myers, Florida, and specializes in all sorts of inshore fishing trips. Captain Kevin has been fishing the Florida waters for the last 25 years, and you can rest assured he will be able to point you in the right direction. His goal is to provide you with a memorable experience, and not just another random fishing trip.

You will be fishing aboard a 22’ Pathfinder center console boat equipped with a 250 HP Yamaha engine that can have it going up to an impressive 50 knots. It contains all the necessary safety and navigation gear such as a GPS and a fishfinder device. It has plenty of space for up to four people, so it’s also a great choice for that family trip you’ve been planning.

The waters around Fort Myers have some great fishing spots and are filled with Redfish, Snook, Trout, and Tarpon (when in season). Apart from trolling, you can also try your hand at bottom fishing for some tasty Snapper. Captain Kevin will provide you with the best fishing gear, from brands like Shimano, St. Croix, Power Pro, and Bass Pro Shops. Of course, you are always welcome to bring your own gear if you like.

Apart from the gear, you will also find that the necessary fishing licenses, as well as bait and drinking water are also included in the price. After the trip, Captain Kevin will clean and fillet anything you catch so you have one thing fewer to take care of. Bring a hat and a pair of polarized sunglasses so that you’re comfortable and get ready for a day of adventure.

Great day fishing for trout and redfish. Ended up hooking into an estimated 80 lb tarpon which we nearly landed after about an hour, line gave way but great time fighting the fish.

We caught a lot of fish; beautiful scenery; dolphins, manatees and a variety of sea birds; add to that a knowledgeable guide and you have a recipe for a great day on the water!
