There Slacktyde Charters welcomes all anglers, the seasoned and the new, to set sail on a fishing adventure. Captain Tyler Keegan will share his deep love of the region and excellent knowledge of the waters, so you could have a truly memorable fishing trip.

Cover many hot-spots of the region on board of the Nautic Star (bay boat) model from 2012. This vessel is 24 feet long and can accommodate up to 6 guests per trip. For your better fishing experience, there’s fishfinding equipment and an ice-box to keep your catch fresh. The boat is fitted with a single Yamaha sho engine that can run up to 40 knots, and there’s an option of wireless trolling motor.

With the various fisheries and species of the region, you get to be spoiled for choice. The charter covers inshore, nearshore, and offshore waters along with wrecks, backcountry, and flats locations. You can go after your catch with light and heavy tackle, while there’s also the option of fly fishing and bottom fishing techniques. With Snapper, Permit, and Tarpon, there’s action all year round, but you need to check with the crew which fish is biting.

All the necessary equipment, live bait, and lures are waiting for the guests onboard. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about the Florida fishing license as the charter covers it. Just be sure to bring your beverages, snacks, and sunscreen. If you match your skill and luck and end up with a trophy, the crew will gladly help you clean it.

I was born and raised on Marco Island and grew up fishing and exploring this area. The day I was old enough I went and took my test to become a captain so I could share everything this area has to offer with others. I take pride in every trip and make sure every customer has a unique and amazing experience.
