Steller Angler is one of those charters that emphasizes hands-on experience. Captain Ethan is not here just to help you fill out your bucket, but also to help you create a memorable experience and a chance to learn something new. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an occasional angler - you’ll become a much better fisherman by the end of the trip.

It all starts on an 18’ Maverick boat that accommodates up to 2 guests. This flats boat is perfect for shallow spots you’ll be exploring and can access the places other boats can’t. She’s powered by a 70 HP Yamaha engine and reaches the speed of 30 knots. There’s also a wireless trolling engine, so you can approach the fish in quiet, without scaring it.

There are multiple species to target here, from Redfish, Jack Crevalle, and Flounder to Trout, Bonito, Shark, and Bluefish. Whether you’re going to use light tackle or challenge yourself with a fly rod, Capt. Ethan will do his best to find the best spots. There’s a catch and release policy, so make sure to snap a few photos before you release the fish back.

All fishing equipment, licenses, and water are included in the price. You only need to pack some snacks and bring your hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

Join the captain who still enjoys fishing as the day he started. Learning becomes much quicker and enjoyable when you have a guide like that by your side. Steller Angler hopes to see you on your next fishing adventure!
