Do you want to get away from it all to spend a refreshing day cruising the waves? And while at sea, wouldn’t you want the chance to catch some mouth-watering fish?! Well come down to Bokeelia Florida and contact Locked In Fishing Charters. They’ll provide you with fishing trips, shelling tours, and beach trips. Captain John Reid will take you under his wing and you’ll have a fantastic time.

Come aboard a 22’ Pathfinder bay boat that can accommodate groups of up to 4 guests. There’s fishfinding equipment to help you track your catch easily. The boat is fitted with a single Yamaha engine and it can reach a maximum speed of 40 knots. You’ll be at your fishing hot-spot in no time.

The charter covers inshore and nearshore fishing locations along with flats and backwaters. You’ll be going after your catch with light and heavy tackle fishing techniques. If you’re in it for the challenge you can test your skills with Tarpon and Snook. While people who want to fill up their fridge with delicious meat can try their luck with Sheepshead and Snapper, among others.

When it comes to the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and live bait, all of it will be waiting for you on board. You also don’t have to worry about the fishing license as the charter’s got you covered. You can keep your catch, and in that case, the crew will help you prepare it and bag it. People with kids should think of an option for their day-care, as children are not allowed.

Spend a beautiful day out in the open breathing the fresh sea air. Contact Locked In Fishing Charters and get yourself the opportunity to stock up on some delicious fish.
