Don’t miss out on a chance to join Tight Line Fishin’ Charters for a day! Capt. Scout is 8th generation from the island of Chokoloskee and fishing is like second nature to him. He knows the waters like the back of his hand and would love to share his knowledge of the 10,000 Islands and backcountry waters with you.

Spend the day on a 22’ Blue-wave powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. The boat is equipped with three livewells, GPS, a fishfinder, a power pole, and a spot lock trolling motor. There is also plenty of storage for personal belongings. There’s enough room for 4 guests to fish in comfort, so bring your friends and family.

Inshore, nearshore, and backcountry are where fishing will take place. You’ll be targeting Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Trout, Permit, Cobia, Snapper, and many more. Different techniques will apply for each fish, from bottom fishing to popping corks to throwing artificial and live bait. After the trip, Capt. Scout will clean the fish and bag it up if you choose to keep the fish.

Supplied on the trip are bottled water, fishing rods and reels, tackle, bait, and all the other fishing supplies needed. Also, USCG life jackets, children 6 and under are required to wear a life jacket for comfort. The captain recommends bringing your own jacket for the child, food and snack, any other drink, and sunblock.
