Chum Crazy Charters is a charter that will take you fishing in the inshore waters of Sanibel, Fort Myers Beach, and Bonita Springs. Captain Drew is someone who has spent most of his life on or near the water, and he will be happy to show you everything these waters have to offer.

You will be fishing aboard a 21’ Tidewater Bay Boat, equipped with a 150HP Yamaha engine as well as all the necessary safety and navigation gear. Apart from those, the boat has a wireless trolling motor for silently approaching fish, a jackplate for going into shallow waters, and a power pole for silent anchoring.

You will mostly be fishing the inshore waters. On your typical fishing trip, you will encounter fish such as Snook, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, and more besides.

For those who would like to try something that’s not fishing, you have the option of booking a non-fishing Eco Tour, where you can see abundant wildlife that includes Dolphins, Manatees, as well as a lot of different bird species.

All the necessary fishing gear, bait, and fishing licenses are included in the price of the trip. Captain Drew will also clean and fillet your catch after the trip. The only thing left for you to do is bring sunblock, a pair of polarized sunglasses, as well as snacks and drinks if you’re a fan. Please bring lotion sunblock and avoid spray packaging to ensure safety on the boat. Your trip can begin now!

I grew up near the water and have never known any other lifestyle than one that revolves around the water. Fishing is something that came natural to me. It is something that I have always been very successful in and truly enjoy doing.
