Fish On Charters

If you’re looking for a personal angling adventure in Fort Myers Beach’s world-famous fishing grounds, Fish On Charters are waiting to take you out for an unforgettable day on the water! With specialized trips that cater to small groups of guests, you’ll have the chance to receive guidance and pick up some firsthand tips and tricks from your captain.

Captain William Young was raised on these waters and has always had a passion for the outdoors. He’s been casting his line here for as long as he can remember, and is the first in his family to pursue angling as a career. On top of this, he’s also a great teacher. He’s very patient and loves showing newer anglers the ropes.

You’ll be fishing from your captain’s beautiful 23’ 2018 Carolina Skiff Sea Chaser LX, capable of accommodating up to 4 guests. She’s decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, as well as a T-Top for shade. She’s also a fishing machine, equipped with a wireless trolling motor for when you’re cruising the shallow backwaters.

Depending on your preferences and skill levels, you’ll get to experience either a half or full day of fishing the backwaters of Estero Bay or the nearshore wrecks, home to Snook, the mighty Tarpon, Snapper species, huge Grouper, Redfish, Cobia, Sharks, and Sheepshead.

Capt. William runs trips for groups of either 2 anglers, or up to 4 anglers. If you’re looking for a really hands-on experience, grab your best angling buddy or partner and opt for the 2-guest adventure. Want to bring the kids along or cast off with a bigger group of friends? Opt for a 4-guest adventure.

Your captain will make sure you’re decked out with top-quality rods and reels, bait, lures, and a valid fishing license. He’ll also fillet your catch for you, and provide a cooler for you to store it in. All that’s left is to grab your favorite snacks and drinks and hop aboard Fish On Charters for a first-class Floridian adventure!
