Sweet Bottom Charters

Sweet Bottom Charters will take you on an unforgettable inshore fishing trip. Based in Fort Pierce, Captain Chuck Debevec has fished all around Florida. He has over 50 years of angling experience and loves to teach novices how to catch fish. You don’t need any previous experience and the trips are family-friendly.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 17’ Bay Craft. The boat usually accommodates 2 guests but you can bring your kid along too, as a 3rd guest. This flats boat is powered by a 90 HP Evinrude engine and equipped with navigational electronics, such as GPS, VHF radio, and a fishfinder. There’s also a live bait tank and a cooler for your drinks.

Your main catch will be Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout but the list doesn’t end there – take a few hours more on the boat and you can also go after Jack Crevalle, Mangrove Snapper, Red Grouper, and Ladyfish. You can keep the catch and the captain will clean it for you free of charge. Then you only need to find a nice restaurant at the marina, where your catch will be prepared for you.

Capt. Chuck covers your fishing equipment, you only need to bring your gear if you’re planning to go fly fishing. You only need to bring your food, drinks, and sunglasses.

Sweet Bottom Charters turns novices into anglers. Use this opportunity to learn something new and join Capt. Chuck for one day!
