Have a beautiful fishing experience with Dragonfly Charters as you explore the scenic inshore and nearshore waters, flats, and the backcountry of Florida. Captain Mike Moran will meet you in Cape Coral and take you on a fun and enjoyable trip to the area’s grounds rich with many respectable fish species. The captain is a lifelong angler with lots of passion for the water and he knows how to provide a successful trip. Join him aboard and have a day to remember!

Your boat for the day will be a 16’ SaltMarsh flats boat that can fit 2 guests. It runs on a 70 HP Yamaha engine and uses GPS for better navigation. It has got a livewell in order to provide you with live bait.

The species you, your companion, and the captain will be chasing include Tarpon, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Mangrove Snapper, Pompano, Tripletail, Sheepshead, Redfish, Cobia, and more. In order to attract them, you can use spinning, popping, and fly fishing, all on light tackle. You’re free to keep the fish you catch as well as to bring your kids aboard.

Captain Mike supplies all the fishing equipment, live bait, lures, as well as licenses. Before you depart, just make sure you have some snacks and drinks with you.

Spend a day fishing in this part of Florida and have a great time catching fish!

Captain Mike got his first Jon Boat when he was 11 years old and living in Fort Myers Beach. He absolutely fell in love with the salt water, mangroves, and wildlife. He's been fishing these waters for 25 years and still learns something new every day. The captain believes that’s the fun in it and that we'll never figure Mother Nature out.
