When you’re looking for a fishing charter in Southwest Florida, definitely contact Blue Line Fishing Charters. Captain Keith Edinger runs fishing trips from Captiva, Saint James City, Cape Coral and anywhere in between. His goal is to make it more convenient for you, so he’ll do his best to make things easier.

Capt. Keith tailors the trips to each client’s needs. He loves having families on board and helping them create unforgettable bonding moments. As a father himself, he’s passionate about teaching children how to fish and keeping them engaged throughout the trip.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 24’ Rogue bay boat, which accommodates up to 6 guests. As she’s powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine, she can easily go through the shallow waters and reach the fishing spots fast. There’s also a quiet, wireless trolling motor when you need to sneak up on fish.

You’ll mostly target Snook, Trout, Redfish, Tarpon, and Snapper. Capt. Keith specializes in using live bait and light tackle but you can also try other techniques, such as trolling, popping, drift fishing, and more. You can release the catch or choose to keep it. In the case of the latter, the captain will clean and fillet your catch.

The captain will provide your fishing equipment, lures, bait, fresh water, and cover your fishing license. You only need to bring your snacks and any other preferable drinks for the day.

Blue Line Fishing Charters is here for you year round! You simply can’t go wrong with an experienced local who does his best for each guest to feel at home. Book now and enjoy your adventure!
