Explore the waters of Fort Myers and have a great fishing experience with Thrill Of It All. Together with Captain Scott Williams, you’ll embark on the nearby inshore and nearshore waters and flats and have fun chasing several different species. Apart from the challenging and tasty fish, the beautiful natural surroundings will also make you wish to come back. Come aboard and enjoy a day fishing with Thrill Of It All.

Your trip will start on a 23’ Hanson bay boat. It can comfortably sit up to 6 anglers and is powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. It uses modern GPS and fishfinder technology to make your trip safe and to locate the fish as quickly as possible. It’s also got a wireless trolling motor used for a more tactful approach to the fish, a livewell to provide live bait, and it features an ice-box so you can store your fish and drinks.

You’ll be able to chase Jack Crevalle, Shark, Tarpon, Snook, Spotted Seatrout, and Redfish. The captain specializes in spinning on both light and heavy tackle, so this is the way you’ll be attracting your prey. You get to keep all the fish you catch.

Captain Scott provides you with all the fishing licenses, tackle, live bait, lures, snacks, water, beverages, and will even clean and fillet your catch. There’s nothing you should bring on your trip but you’re free to bring any other food or drinks if you wish to.

Thrill Of It All invites you for an exciting trip around Fort Myers. Come and have lots of fun on the water and get back home with a respectable catch.

Captain Scott has been fishing his entire life. For years, friends and family encouraged him to become a guide, so guiding and becoming a captain was something he contemplated for years and years, At 33 years old he finally took the leap and started his own business guiding, doing all sorts of various tours. He's lived here in South West Florida for 30 years and knows the area very well, and he'll go out of his way to ensure that his clients' needs are taken care of. Captain Scott puts the extra effort every day in ensuring his boat and equipment are well maintained and remain clean and safe for his customers. The captain is personable and enjoys chatting with his guests. He appreciates the time you take to consider his charter and invites you to book a trip and join him on the water.
