Come visit Chasin Your Passion Outfitters and spend a lovely day fishing the beautiful and fish-rich waters of Bokeelia, Florida. Together with Captain Eric Suarez, you’ll embark on the area’s inshore waters, flats, as well as the backcountry to chase and catch many respectable fish species. Captain Eric is a cordial angler who knows the area well and he’ll do his best to make your trip the best possible.

You’ll start your trip on a 24’ Blazer Bay boat that can sit up to 4 guests and is powered by a 300 HP Mercury engine with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. It uses GPS, fishfinder, as well as radio technology for safe and quick navigation and it features a fighting chair, livewell, and an ice-box.

You’ll target Snook, Spotted Seatrout, Tarpon, Redfish, and Cobia, and you’ll use spinning on light tackle to catch them. You get to keep all the fish you catch so you can take it home and enjoy some truly delicious meals.

Captain Eric will cover you for all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. He’ll also provide fishing licenses and will clean and fillet your catch completely free of charge. What you should bring before you depart is the food and drinks of your choice.

Come and have lots of fun fishing in Bokeelia!
