Captain Mike’s Back Bay Charters

Explore the waters around Cape Coral with Captain Mike’s Back Bay Charters! This lifelong fisherman has finally decided to share his talent and knowledge with clients by starting a charter business. Join him at any time of the year, as the action never stops in these waters!

The Caloosahatchee River and Pine Island Sound offer opportunities for Snook, Redfish, and many other species that can be targeted within just a few minutes of the boat ramp. Whether you’re interested in searching for a trophy fish to fight or just want to have a day enjoying the wildlife the intercoastal waterways of Lee county are ready to please!

Or maybe you want to try your hand at an in-shore slam?! These trips offer a full day of fishing with sights set on the big 3 in the area, Snook, Redfish, and Trout. Run the bay area and utilize multiple fishing styles, artificial lures, natural baits, and target the habitats that hold some of the hardest fighting (and best tasting) fish around!

The adventure starts on a 17’ Ranger that accommodates up to 2 guests. This bass boat is powered by a 117 HP Mercury engine and reaches a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. The boat also features a fishfinder, GPS, and a live bait tank.

Capt. Mike will take care of all fishing equipment and he also covers your fishing license. Just pack some food and drinks for the day and you’re ready to go.

Captain Mike’s Back Bay Charters welcomes you aboard!
