Chum Crazy Charters

15001 Punta Rassa Road
Fort Myers FL, United States

Chum Crazy Charters is a charter that will take you fishing in the inshore and nearshore 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, but Captain Drew can also take you up to nine miles out to do some bottom fishing over at the nearby reefs and wrecks. On your typical fishing trip, you will encounter fish such as Snook, Redfish, Goliath Grouper, Sharks, 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 polarised sunglasses, as well as snacks and drinks if you’re a fan and the trip can begin.

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.

Great day on the water with my daughter and her boyfriend. Captain Drew kept us busy catching fish. He was great. Gave us information and fishing tips on how to catch more fish . Newer boat would highly recommend him. Chum crazy charters

Amazing Backcountry fishing with Captain Drew from Chum Crazy Charters. Completely exceeded our expectations. Drew was super knowledgeable on the area and species we targeted. Caught Reds, Snook, Jack Cravalle, Mangrove Snapper, (and even cats).

We are pretty experienced fishing for bass, but Capt Drew helped us up our game for the SW Florida sport fishing we experienced. Drew provided top notch bait, excellent gear, and most of all, his expertise and skill in getting us on the fish and techniques to land them. He was patient, knowledgeable and kept us on the fish. Great boat, super wide beam for tons of room to fish, and well maintained.

Looking forward to our next SW Florida vacation and another trip with Chum Crazy Charters.

Excellent professional charter.  Drew put us in the position to be successful and we landed some great snook, snapper and a Red. 

Will definitely be a repeat customer.
