If you’re looking for an incredible inshore Floridian fishing adventure, make sure that a visit to Anchors Away Charters is at the top of your “to-do” list! Located in Placida, this charter boasts access to the seriously plentiful and protected fishing grounds of Gasparilla Sound and Charlotte Harbor. In addition, your captain Jeff Watkins has been fishing these waters all of his life. Who could be better equipped to take you on a day of first-class fishing?
Capt. Jeff started fishing when he was 4 years old, and from that moment he knew that angling was going to be a big part of his life. When it comes to these inshore fishing grounds, he’s spent plenty of time exploring them and knows exactly where the hottest bite will be on any given day. He’ll happily share his local tips and tricks when it comes to reeling in your dream catch – whether that’s Redfish, Snook, or more!
You’ll be traveling on board your captain’s 18’ Shallow Sport center console, perfectly built to navigate these seriously shallow waterways. She’s decked out with top-quality navigational, safety equipment, and a wireless trolling motor so you don’t spook your catch as you head to the hotspots.
Capt. Jeff’s inshore trips focus on the plentiful waterways in and around Gasparilla Sound and Charlotte Harbor, which are home to a huge host of incredible Floridian favorites. Your targeted species include Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and feisty Snook – all three are seriously fun to catch, and will provide plenty of rod-bending action! Depending on the bite and your skill level, you’ll use a mix of artificial lures, live bait, and cut bait.
You’ll be provided with rods, reels, tackle, and a fishing license. Come aboard Anchors Away Charters for an incredible inshore adventure!
The State of Florida closed the harvesting of Redfish, Snook, and Trout until May 2021. You may catch them, but have to release them.
