Captain Scotty Roe moved to Charlotte County, FL back in 1981 and began fishing at an early age. He learned how to fish on Spring Lake and eventually took his skills into deeper waters off of Florida’s Gulf Coast. In 1996, he decided it was time to turn his hobby into a profession and start his own charter business. Aside from taking customers fishing, Capt. Scotty also competes in tournaments but there’s nothing he loves more than fishing with clients. Come share your passion for fishing with a like-minded angler and join Capt. Scotty Roe Fishing Charters!
