Gulf Coast Charter Service

Capt. Fabian Guerrero is a USCG licensed and insured captain with more than 2 decades of experience fishing Southwest Florida’s vast and fertile waters. He started fishing major tournaments at the age of 12, took 4th place in a pro redfish tour event before turning 16, and year after year he has expanded his skill set for catching a wide range of sought-after gamefish that thrive in the region.

When it comes to finding the hot bite, Capt. Fabian is second to none. Not only is he in tune with the movements and predators and prey, but his area of expertise spans from the coastal creeks and major rivers—like the Caloosahatchee—to the shallow flats and mangrove shorelines of Estero Bay, Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor, to Boca Grande, Captiva and other passes, the beaches and nearshore waters.

For unbeatable comfort, safety and fishabilty, Capt. Fabian runs a 24-foot T Craft Brand custom boat powered by a Suzuki 300 hp motor, which offers a smooth and dry ride, makes a spacious and extremely stable fishing platform, and gets you from one hotspot to the next in a hurry. Of course, the boat has the latest in navigation and fish-finding electronics, as well as all the necessary safety equipment.

Captain Fabian’s got you covered for all the fishing gear you’ll need for your trip as well as for licenses. Anglers need only bring personal items like polarized sunglasses, rain jacket, etc.
