Boca Grande And Beyond

Book your next trip with confidence! Captain Dylan of Boca Grande And Beyond has been fishing Southwest Florida his entire life and really enjoys being a full time fishing guide. He’s prepared for every avid angler or family looking for a fun fishing trip!

You’ll be fishing from a 24’ Shallow Sport Mod V that accommodates up to 6 guests. The boat is powered by a Yamaha 250 SHO and features a Minn Kota trolling motor, 10’ power pole shallow water anchor, and Raymarine GPS/fishfinder. This boat has a draft of 6 inches so it can go where other boats can’t while still riding comfortably on those windy days.

The Charlotte Harbor, Gasparilla Sound, Pine Island Sound, and the Gulf of Mexico all combine to create a world famous inshore and nearshore fishing experience. From hard fighting sport fish like Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Trout to good eating fish like Grouper, Snapper, Tripletail, and Sheepshead, Capt. Dylan’s got you covered. Pick up locations and custom fishing trips can be arranged.

The live well will be full of bait before you even step aboard as well as Penn rods and reels lined up and ready for that first fish! After your trip, your catch will be filleted and bagged for you to enjoy for dinner.

Captain Dylan will be professional, friendly, and prepared to make sure you have the best trip possible. So head out with Boca Grande And Beyond and let your hunter side shine!
