Step aboard the 20’ Back Country flats boat and hit the waters from the rivers to the reefs. Up to 5 guests are welcome on board, heading from sweet spot to sweet spot in search of some prized fish. Make use of the 360-degree view and the spacious deck as you battle it out with monster fish, while the captain will provide water and chips to keep you energized.

At the end of the day, your captain will clean and fillet your edible catch to take home, so you’re good to go. All you need to do before coming aboard is bring some extra drinks and snacks, some sunscreen, and settle in for a thrilling trip. Make Straw Hats Fishing Charters your next stop in western Florida!
