Hooked On Charters - Placida

Gasparilla Dr
Placida FL, United States

Hooked On Charters offers various trips from stalking Redfish in shallow water to throwing crabs at a 200 lb Tarpon out of Placida, Florida. Captain Scott strives to provide the most exceptional experience on the water to all his guests.

You will be fishing aboard a 24-foot Proline flats boat, which provides a shallow draft to the flats and backcountry. Originally built in 1974, the vessel was restored in 2015 and comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. Captain Scott has a perfect command of his Lowrance navigational electronics and will aid your search to the fish. There is a 60-gallon livewell on board with White bait, Pinfish, and Crabs, as well as an ice-box to store your refreshments and keep the catch fresh. Up to four anglers are welcome onboard.

The Boca Grande Tarpon catch-and-release trips are Captain Scott’s speciality. You can choose from six, eight, and twelve-hour packages that are available from April through October. If you want to enjoy the “Hill Tide”, the best time is May till June.

Inshore and nearshore fishing in Placida will see you chasing a variety of fish species. If your angler’s list is too big and you want to experience some fine light tackle or bottom fishing, the crew has something to offer. Have the waters all to yourself on a full day trip, or check what’s biting on a shorter adventure. The hot spots will include a lot of small mangrove islands, grass flats, oyster beds, and passes. You can expect to reel in Redfish, Snook, Trout, Tarpon, Mangrove and Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, and even Sharks!

For your fishing adventure you will be provided with top-quality rods, reels, tackle, licenses, bait, and lures. The captain will send your catch home cleaned and filleted. Don’t forget to bring your favorite snacks, drinks, and the desire to catch fish!

About the Captain

Scott Fisher
Placida, Florida, United States
Member since May 2015
I am a third generation Floridian who has grown up fishing the Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande, Pine Island area. I have lived in Punta Gorda since a very young age and have always had a passion for fishing. I've studied the fish who call Charlotte Harbor their home (Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Sharks). I have spent countless hours on the water learning their behavior to become the best fisherman I can be.
