Some of Florida’s best inshore fishing is waiting for you in the shallow flats surrounding Pine Island! Capt. Michael Kayrouz Charters offers opportunities to catch multiple species of game fish and enjoy spotting stunning wildlife including manatees, dolphins, and bald eagles. A day out on the water is a great way to experience what SW Florida is all about!

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 17’ Ranger bass boat. This vessel is powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine and reaches maximum cruising speeds of 30 knots. This boat features GPS, a fishfinder, and a live bait tank. The capacity is limited to 2 guests only, so you can count on more of the captain’s attention compared to other charters.

Come out to enjoy the scenic shallow flats for a day of fishing and wildlife viewing! Catch multiple species throughout the seasons with artificial and live bait, which is provided alongside all of your fishing equipment and safety gear. Spotted Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and the occasional Red Drum are common on these quick trips!

Do you want to beat the heat and make it back for lunch?! With great local restaurants within walking distance of the drop-off location, you can enjoy a morning of fishing and be back in time to enjoy beautiful and fun Matlacha with family and friends!

Please come prepared with sunscreen, plenty of water to drink, and be ready to have some fun in the Florida sun. Capt. Michael Kayrouz Charters is at your service!

    Take this trip for the opportunity to best the boats record of 78-1/2” total combined length for the “In-shore Slam!” Snook, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout are the big three, and to catch them all in one outting is quite the adventure! We’ll use different tactics, and both artificial and natual bait presentations to increase the odds of putting them all in the boat! Catching a trophy class fish in one of the three will give you memories to last a lifetime!
