Southern Grove Charters is here to make sure you have an unforgettable weekend on the water. As a true Floridian, Captain Michael Wesley has been fishing in the area his entire life and he still can’t get enough of it. Now, he wants to share his experience and excitement with you.
Capt. Michael welcomes you aboard his 18’ Maverick Master Angler. This flats boat accommodates up to 3 guests and there’s enough room for everybody to fish at the same time. She’s powered by a 130 HP Yamaha engine and can reach the best fishing spots in no time. The boat is specifically built for mangroves and backwaters, which will be your main fishing grounds.
Your main targets will be Snook, Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, Snapper, Sheepshead, and Black Drum. The amount of fish can vary depending on the time of the year but all species are available year round in general. When it comes to fishing techniques you’ll be using, Capt. Michael prefers light tackle because he loves the challenge and it also gives the fish a fair fighting chance.
Capt. Michael will prepare your fishing equipment, live bait, lures, and water. There’s a cooler with ice, which you can fill up with your snacks and any other drinks you prefer. After the trip, the captain will clean and fillet your catch at no extra charge.
These trips are family friendly, so children of ages 5 and above are welcome. It doesn’t matter if anyone from your group is a beginner – with Capt. Michael by their side, they’ll pick up the basics easily and hold their rod with confidence.
Spending a day with Southern Grove Charters is a sure way to put a smile on your face. Book your day of inshore bliss.
